SOURCE: 2001 avalon winshield wiper motor location and

check the fuses under the dash and under the hood

failing that go to auto zone they can show you the location and quote the parts price too
remem ber to turn on wipers and turn on ignition dont start the car look under hood listen for winding noise locate noise locate wiper motor

if making wiring noise remove and re conect wiper arms inside as they are prone to poping off if over loaded like when frozen to wind screen they pop the conector rather than burn the motor out ]

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:-----

For complete troubleshooting i suggest you few helpful links with accurate solutions.

Beyond the obvious answer of replacing the motor itself, check the fuse, and bad wiper switch, it could be just the auto-park switch on the wiper motor that is worn out.

Wipier motor burnt out on 05 crown victoria?


Either the motor winding shorted or; the connectors on the motor are loose/corroded causing arcing and overheating or; the linkage is binding putting too much load on the motor.

Sounds like the wiper motor needs replacing.

The winshield wiper is working slowly in my bmw750


It seems like the motor for the wiper arm is failing, but I recommend having a mechanic check it out. You may be able to get a good condition used motor from a BMW salvage yard.
