Question about 2000 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Wiper problem Intermittent wiper stage does not work. Instead, wipers work on the constant low speed setting only. Also, when turning wipers off, they stop wherever they happen to be in the cycle instead of at the bottom of the windshield. Is this a relay problem and if so where is it located and how easy it it to replace?

    When switch is in the intermitent wiper setting the wiper works as if it is in the low position setting and is constant. Wiper also works in the low setting or high setting but the wiper blades will stop on the windsheild wherever you shut of the switch.

    Toyota dealer wants $100.00 to check it and another $450.00 for a combo repair?

    Wiper motor assembly is $57.00 at local store.

    I apologize in advance, but, replacing relays are not going to rectify your problem. What you have are failed electronics inside the wiper motor. I have observed this several times. The unfortunate remedy is to replace the wiper motor assembly. Sorry, there is no other solution.

    Windshield wiper works intermittently

  • Anonymous Mar 18, 2014

    Intermittent wiper selection works at slow speed only and stops at different positions, often in the up position. It will resume at slow speed and stop in a different position. The regular slow speed and fast speed selections work fine.

What would cause the windshield wipers on my recently purchased Jeep Patriot Sport work on every speed except the high speed. High speed doesn't work at all.


The intermittent switch has a bad contact in it for the high speed, i would say, most likely will have to replace it.

What is the relay location in the relay box


The problem would be in the stalk controller. The wiper Relay is what provides power to the motor for all settings, the delayed wipers, low speed, and high speed. There are not 3 relays, but 1 for all functions. If you have power to the high setting, the relay is working.

Intermittent wiper


what car, what year? gee? a suz, what?
it can only be 4 things. (all cars)
1: the wiper motor is bad. (it has contacts inside for timing.
2: the wiper shaft is stripped, nah you said both stalled.
3: the wiring is bad.
4: the combo switch for the above is bad.

DIY, with what , no tools? no meter.?
with no tools one can only GUESS,
roll dice, and replace a part.
after spending $500 on parts and the wires are good then what.
yes, buy a meter.

it could be a bad ground wire.

when you turn on most wipers, the combo switch sends
that signal( just 12v ) to the motor.
the motor is self booting, that is , it only needs the start up
and then it self provides its own power,
ive restored wiper motors, many.
then the motor runs until it his the dead spot in ITS, internal
sustain switch and the halts. if the combo switch is off.
but if the wiper fails to return, this is a bad wiper motor.
(overloaded by ice, sure)
the motor can fail 2 ways, but
id say the sustain switch is at EOL. end of life.

this is the most common design.
check your FSM for yours. the factor service manual.
or alldata dot com. sure.

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.


i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
Thanks
