Volvo 850 windshield wipers

Just baught a used volvo. Wipers don't work. Someone told me they may have that sensor on them so they only go on in the rain. I think they are BSing me. And even if they did, I should still be able to turn them on somehow right? Thanks for any bites.

The 13mm nuts that attach the wiper arms to the pivot assembly loosen with time. Pop up the plastic caps and tighten the nuts. Make sure the wipers are in the park position i.e. set the wiper switch in the off position before shutting the ignition off - otherwise you might tighten the wiper arms in the wrong position and they would try to go places they shouldn't :)

Even if it has a rain sensor the wipers should work when you flip the switch.

Use a hose and squirt water on the windshield to test the sensors.

96 volvo windshield wipers wont clean window


Assuming you have good wiper blades and have cleaned the windshield (no oil or other contaminants) I'm guessing the arms need to be replaced. The springs are failing to keep proper pressure on the blade allowing them to skip or lift at speeds.

My Volvo's windshield wipers just ''froze in place'' and do move. Is this an electrical problem? (My car's headlights/brake lights do work.) Thank you.


You could try just tightening the nuts that hold your wipers. I'm no expert but I know the wipers on volvos are made to loosen them selves up if they get stuck on anything (like ice) so they wont break something more expensive.

Headlight wiper


They shouldn't - they only work when you do a wash/wipe.

Wipers


On my 850 the headlight wipers come on the same time as my windshield wipers when I pull the lever to squirt washer fluid on my windshield.
The back wiper should be on an independent switch.
