The problem is most likely in the rear motor itself. The dash switch has a very low failure rate. There is always a chance you have a broken wire where they go from the body to liftgate, but does not happen often.

The rear window wiper worked twice, now it stopped. I press the button for the fluid, and I hear it, but do not see it, and the wiper is still not working. Could it be a fuse or a new motor?


Checking the fuses is a good first step, and it does not cost you anything. If you don't have a tool to check fuses, just replace the suspect fuse with a known good one of the same rating. How do you know a good one? take one from a functioning service, swap them out.

97 jeep cj windows and wipers stopped working fuses are ok


97 wrangler right? CJ ended in 86 (last year)
97 TJ, you mean, or was posting to Cherokee correct all along./?????
factoid:
The Chrysler Corporation bought out AMC in 1987, shortly after the Jeep CJ was replaced with the AMC-designed Jeep Wrangler or YJ.


test the fuse, looking only finds the ones blow to H3LL
they can in fact just crack a bit. and are in fact bad.
use any DMM or any ohmmeter, "resistance Rx1 or RX2 range , low range) 0 ohms good, , infinity bad.
only that works. every time.
lets read the FSM together.

wipers first. USA not export.
Front wiper not rear. ok>?
page 8w-53 wiper schematic.

fuse 2 and 3 must be good.
then fuse 14 front wiper ,fuse 12 is rear
if the fuses are good, (truely) we never ohm fuses we use VOLTS
on both sides of fuse, volts never lies.
then what is bad, easy bad wiper switch, motor or ground to motor.
the voltmeter again wins the toss and if no 12vdc to motor
then the switch or wire are bad.
if you have 12v to motor then motor is bad , if ground to motor is no cut.

now windows. what windows, are then not crank windows or zipper windows?

i think you posted wrong car,,

Rear wiper Don't work


Hi,
There is an electric motor that runs the wiper in the rear hatch. Remove the rear plastic panel and verify that the motor is getting 12 volts, using a multi-meter. If it is, then the motor needs replaced. If not then the wiring is likely bad between the switch on the dash/stalk and the rear wiper. The wiring may have broken where it goes into the rear hatch, also.

GL,
Td

I have a 1990 Lumina, my wipers don't work. I have changed the motor and the fuse is good. I would like know what other things I can look for?


Hello! If you have a volt meter, check the following points for +12 volts...At the wiper motor assembly connector...Check Pin A Purple wire...Pin B Dark/Green..
Turn wiper switch to low and measure both pins...Do the same with switch on high...If +12 volts is not present the wiper switch is defective...If +12 volts is present at both switch positions the ground feed to the wiper motor is open...Ground is the Black wire on Pin C...Guru...Saailer

Are the rear wipers and rear washers wired together? On a 2006 Pontiac Montana.. My wiper doesnt work but washer does..


I would check fuse, make sure it is good. I would pull panel and make sure you are getting 12 volts to motor, if you are it could be a bad motor, I would find out what one costs from your auto parts store, then call a reliable auto center, and get a repair quote from them, Please let me know what you find.

Front wipers don't work


Winshield wipers inoperative in all switch positions:

Does your windshield washer work? Check circuit breaker in fuse panel. If it is good then you may have either a bad wiper motor or switch. If you have a volt meter check the white wire (going off 93 wiring color code) on wiper motor connector with switch in low to see if you have 12 volts. If you have 12 volts then you may have a bad wiper motor. If you don't then you may have a bad switch. Hope this helps.

Rear wiper motor not working


most likely the wiper motor is bad the second wire sould be a ground if you set meter to ohms you sould be able to get a low resistance to any good ground on the vehicle if the hot wire is hot any time key is on the bcm is controling the ground to operate moter and you should have a steady continuity on the ground side with switch on the fast postion an it will read on and off in the intermitant postion if both wires test good motor is bad when you replace motor let it cycle and shut it off before installing the arm on it

The rear wiper on my '99 model exped isnt working ,ford global says its the motor and it will cost me P13k . any one who can help me find a mechanic do some repair on this?


what is P13K?

check the fuse first. dealer can hook up NGS Tester and get fault codes to see what is wrong.

Principles of Operation
NOTE: The generic electronic module (GEM) will not activate the rear wiper system if either the liftgate or the liftgate glass is ajar. If either the liftgate or the liftgate glass becomes ajar while the rear wiper is in operation, the GEM will park the rear wiper motor.
There are two distinct modes of wiper operation:
  • Off Mode: In this mode, there is no rear wiper activity, and the wiper motor will be in the PARK position.
  • Interval Mode: This mode is selected when the rear wiper switch is in either the Interval 1 or 2 position. When this mode is selected, the rear wiper motor is driven up onto the glass by activating the rear wiper UP relay. When the wiper motor HIGH/LOW/PARK position input reaches the high position, the UP relay is deactivated and the DOWN relay is activated to reverse the wiper motor direction. When the wiper motor reaches the LOW position, as determined by the HIGH/LOW/PARK position input, the GEM deactivates the DOWN relay and will begin a new wiper cycle 1 to 10 seconds later, depending on the interval position selected.
To engage the rear window washer, rotate the rear window washer selector downward to the WASH position. The rear window wiper will run as long as the WASH position is selected. When the rear window washer selector returns to the OFF, INT 1 or INT 2 position, the washer will stop immediately, but the rear window wiper will continue for two to three sweeps and then return to its previous mode of operation.
The low washer fluid indicator chime warns that the washer fluid level is low. The low washer fluid indicator chime is a single tone with a duration of one second. The chime will sound when the low washer fluid indicator is initially activated.
The low washer fluid indicator warns that the fluid level in the washer reservoir is low. The low washer fluid indicator will illuminate when the washer fluid level is low and the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
The low washer fluid indicator will deactivate when the washer fluid reservoir is filled and the ignition switch has been cycled from RUN to OFF, then to RUN.
Inspection and Verification
  1. The wiper/washer system is a generic electronic module (GEM) controlled system; refer to Section 419-10 .
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the wiper/washer system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.
