Wiper Motor problen

In light rain the wipers work dine. After driving in heavy rain for 30-45 minutes the wipers will stop and start repeatedly. If I stop driving and let the car set for 10-15 minutes the wipers will work fine for about 10-15 minutes before repeating the problem. Is the problem with the motor or relay? Where is th erelay located?

Most likely this is caused by something binding or water getting inside the motor,either way it is tripping the thermal overload inside the wiper motor.

Wipers won't turn off


The wiper motor is defective and needs to be replaced. Inside the wiper motor is a "Park Switch". When you turn the wipers off, the park switch sends a signal to shut the wipers off. If the park switch fails to operate then the wipers will continue to run, unless the ignition key is turned off. You will also need to inspect and test the charging system. Where you had no issue before the rain, you may only need to charge the battery. After the battery is charged it should be load tested, to be sure that it is fine. Also test the alternator and make sure that it is charging correctly (@14volts). If you need more information please write back. Good luck.

Wipers stopped working, not a fuse


Your wiper motor or wiper transmission may be bad. If you can hear the wiper motor running, but the wipers don't move, your wiper transmission is bad. If you can't hear the wiioper motor, and you're sure all fuses are good and all contacts are solid, your wiper motor is toast.

Wiper blade slipped loose in heavy rain.


Unplug the electrical connector at the wiper motor. Use a voltmeter to check for power and ground on the Pink and dark green wires. This setup has two relays: hi speed and low speed. If you're not getting power and ground with IGN switch on RUN and wipers turned on, then yank the relays and check for ground to the relay control coils provided by the body control module. The wiper switch acts as a signal to the BCM to provide ground to the relays. The switch doesn't actually switch power to the relays.

Check to make sure your fuse is set all the way down first. Could be a bad ground too. Check the wiring at the wiper motor and maybe clean the ground and terminals with either alcohol or electric cleaner and make sure the are dry before you plug it back in. It sounds like a power to the wiper motor issue. If that doesn't fix it your wiper motor may have an internal short.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Your wiper fuse may have blown causing the wipers to stop immediately. Check your fuse box for the exact location of the wiper fuse. If the fuse is good, you will need to see if your wiper motor is working. If it is not, the motor is bad. Since your car is just an 08 model, it may just be the fuse. If you have any questions, let me know. Check these solutions first. If neither don't work, let me know.

Driver's side windshield wiper stopped working duing a heavy rain. I can move it by hand easily. Has the linkage come loose?


Hello, I would say that is exactly what has happened. If you can move the wipers with no resistance it's likely one of the bolts has come loose. Both wiper arms are linked to one wiper motor.
