2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette - Rear Wiper not working

When I turn on the switch for the rear wiper to come on, I get nothing. The wiper fluid is on the same switch and it works, just not the wiper. I also checked the fuse and it's fine.

Any suggestions???

This sounds like the wiper motor has failed. It is a common problem that usually starts with the wipers moving slower than normal, then eventually quits all together.

Jeep wrangler wiper fluid will not dispense on front windsheld but will on the rear


Switch is faulty is the first thing comes to my mind. Your spot on tho in your diagnosis, although you may have two pumps and tanks, one for front, one for rear. I would check all my fuses just to be sure, and I would look at all my waster tubes and make sure they are not clogged, check your nozzles too, as sometimes wax can clog them up.

Our rear wiper does not work on our 2000 oldsmobile silhouette


the first thing to do is to check all your fuses, then make sure theres power going to the rear wiper motor,and that it has a good ground,most of the time the wiring at the rear door breaks from the liftgate opening and closing, check the wiring.

Rear window wiper works for a few days or weeks


Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.

How do I refill the wiper fluid for rear window?


That van only has the one washer bottle. You fill the front bottle and there are two pumps inside that bottle. If you don't have any fluid coming out the back end then check to see if 1 the pump works. If you turn it on and it you hear the noise then the pump works. 2 check to make sure that the rear line has not popped of the one way valve at the back.(you can seee the one way valve if you remove the body to gate rubber). 3 check to see if there is anything plugging the lines or rear nozel

Rear wiper wipes once and quits on a 1995 oldsmobile silhouette van


would it wipe more than one if you click the switch on and off repeatedly? If it does wipe more than once when you play with the switch turning it on and off mean the motor to the wiper is still good and working. Check your wiper relay and the wiper switch may be faulty.

My front wipers stand straight up when turned off,is it the wiper motor or something else?


Its just the wiper motor if your using your wiper and you want to turn off the wiper wait until the wiper go back to its original position then turn off the wiper as fast as you can so it will not stand out when you turn it off or you can replace the motor of the wiper.

Where is the switch for my 1997 VW Golf rear windsheild wiper? I just bought it and I can't find it...


The switch for the rear wiper is on the actual windshield wiper switch for the front wipers, you have to push the lever forward to turn it on and then again to turn it off, to use the washer fluid for the rear wiper you push the same lever forward and hold it there till the washer fluid comes out.

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.
