My windsheild wippers on my 1994 toyota truck not working,change fuse but still nothing,what else can i check and how?im a female no one to help me,senior,please step by step.thank, amen hallelujah.

There can be a number of problems that can cause the wipers to not work and many can be electrical faults etc. But I might just have a solution that is remarkable and easy to apply , I am a motorcycle rider and we all know there is no wipers on any helmets, so how do we bypass this problem and maintain a high level of safety in the rain ? well there is a product called RainX and it is applied to the outside of the windshield and can last for 6 months or more ! the rain water will simply not act as a visual impairment and in the day or night RainX gives you very clear vision without the need for wipers if the vehicle is travelling around 50 kph or 30 mph the water gets removed from the wind speed and the fact that the RainX repels the water so it can not distort your vision ,in fact the wipers only give you a temporary glimpse each time they swipe across the screen , I have used RainX in thunder storms at night ,snow storms and on long country trips and I have never stopped using it on any vehicle I own , You need to clean the windshield to perfection before application as this will increase the time or period and cause it to last for months and months , so after the windshield has been cleaned and is dry you pour a little amount of RainX on a clean cloth and rub it in all over the windshield , wait for it to dry and buff it off like you would a wax only this is more of a alcohol based fluid and it will then repel rain and water like magic no wipers needed , 100ml can do your car for a few years even if you use it on all windows ( i use it on every window and mirrors and headlights etc) the cost here in Australia is about $7:00 for 100ml and I also know its a world wide sold product easy to find . You can also use a good car wax that can give you good results but this can make RainX difficult to apply in the future if need be . I hope this helps you out or at least can give you time to find the problem .

When the heater is on in my 2003 Freelander, I get a film on my windshield and front windows. There is no smell of coolant and the heater core is not leaking. Any suggestions? Running defrost doesn

I believe the film on your window is coolant vapor. To test this go to autozone or similar and get a coolant leak detection kit. The kit contains a UV flashlight a pair of glasses and a dye you add to the radiator. Add the dye to radiator, drive vehicle normally but run heater, let film condensation on Windows. Wait until dark and put on the glasses. Shine light on the Windows that have film if the window glows then the film is antifreeze vapor and not safe to breathe.

Cold weather wiper problem

Dear joelgoodison,

Could be the Fuse!
Could be the Wiper Motor Burn't Out if Blades were frozen to windshield when turned on
Until you fix the problem you can buy RainX Wipe-On Glass Solution or Windsheild Washer Fluid which as unbelievable as it sounds will allow you to drive in the all but the worst downpours of rain without wipers!
I love the RainX Windsheild Washer Fluid and rarely use my wipers.
Check the fuses and try RainX and get back to me!
Hope this Helps!
