2006 PT Cruiser Wipers Don't work

My wipers quit working and when I would turn them on and off real fast they would move about a 1/4 inch. Finally they stopped working completely but the rear wiper and fluid for front and rear works fine. I tried replacing the motor for the front wipers but nothing. Now when I turn the ignition to the on position just before starting the wipers will jump a 1/4 inch again. But will not move when the wiper switch is in the on position. Is it a wiring problem or a switch I need to replace?

    I also came upon this problem for my rear window wiper just 275 miles over of warranty. Lets see what the dealer will do for me this week as I found other sites pointing to the computer module as well.

    my windshield wipers are doing the same thing and the dealer told me that it is the fully integrated power control module. does anyone know if i can buy the part and install it myself? Also how hard will it be to replace the part myself?

    We're having the same problem with my mother in laws '06 PT. The dealership told her it's the "wiper computer module". THERE IS NO SUCH THING! They're trying to charge you as much as possible. The module is the entire fuse box, and isn't the problem. All it is, is the wiper motor relay. The problem with that is that there is no diagram anywhere to show you which relay is for the wiper motor. We've been trying to figure it out.

I had the same problem. It was the wiper computer module according to the dealership. Fortunately it was covered under extended warranty and cost $100 deductible.

I've got the same problem. My front wipers glitch. Some times they come on and sometimes they glitch. I've taken it to a million mechanics and no one can't figure it out.

My 2006 pt cruiser front wind sheild wipers wont stop going.. how do i stop them?

Sounds like the relay or switch is bad. Just find the correct fuse for the wipers(will be marked on inside panel cover) and remove it. There is just the switch, the fuse and wiper relay in that system. So it turns on but not off, but works. So there is power from the switch and the fuse is good or it will not work and the relay lets it turn on but not off. Try putting it on a delay mode, if it does not work more than likey it is the relay. I know it is a hit or miss issue but that is cheaper attempt than replacing the switch assembly.

The wipers quit on my 06 cruiser. they had been coming on and off by themselves for a while and then just quit. the back wipers work fine.

if power to wiper motor, then replace the wiper motor. if no power when switch is on, it is most likely the wiper switch thats bad. check the relays and fuses first! good-day!

2006 PT cruiser dies intermittently---batery light dies no wiper

Sounds as if the alternator is not charging the battery. Check the alternator for voltage it should put out around 13 volts at idle and normal operation. If it charges then the battery is defective. A good place to start is clean the battery cables to remove any corrosion and make good contact. Many an electrical problem has been solved by cleaning battery cables.
