Check fuses and wiring first. See if there are any damaged wires in the vicinity of the steering column where the wires come out and at the wiper motor. Then inspect the wiper motor itself with a test meter to make sure the ground strap is actually grounding to the body shell, and that there is continuity in the other windings of the motor. If you do not mind the sparking, you can try to manually power the motor with a wire from the battery positive and touch to each of the terminals with the connector removed. If the other speeds work in that manner- replace wiper switch. If the motor does nothing- replace motor. Also if only one terminal shows continuity to ground, replace motor.

Of the wiper control has been damaged physically, replace switch.

Both windshield wipers come on when making turns only shut back off after several minutes or turning off the engine. What could be the problem?


Replace the turn signal switch. This is the only thing that will operate the wipers and washer at the same time.

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.

Wipers only work on fast. Checked the relay and its good, checked the switches and its good. What else needs to be checked?


This is (obviously) a two-speed motor. The low speed winding is burned out. Replace the motor.

My windshield wipers will not shut off. was useing delay when i tryed to turn them off they would not.i shut off the engine several times to get them to be at the bottom of the windshield now they will not...


a known problem with GM wiper motors were the circuit boards which may be replaced seperate on some models. also would cause what we call a park issue meaning not stopping at bottom of the windshield. hope this helps.

Windscreen wipers not working


WINDSHIELD WIPERS


It can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.


Do you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function. If yes then fuse is ok, but issue is wiper motor.

If no movement at all and no noise then its blown fuse or shorted/loose wiper control wiring: -----
