Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

Wipers sont shut off when key is turned on

My headlites were not working but the driving lites were. Changed the multifunction switch and the harness going to it. Now when I start the vehicle the wipers go on and won't stop. when you adjust the wipers the washer motor empties the resovoir.

    Thanks Warlock61 for the input, but this is the third time I've changed the switch two were borg/warner and the third I got from a ford dealer in kelowna. all three did the same thing. the only thing is the old switch still works the wipers properly but not the headlites. GO FIGURE EH!!

If the harness was correctly changed the wrong switch could cause this problem. make sure that it is the correct switch for that vehicle

My wiper motor only works on high and stops were ever the wipers are at. And the washer motor doest #39;t work


Low Speed Windshield Wipers
Low speed is activated when the multifunction switch supplies a specific ground to the speed inputs of the windshield wiper motor module. The windshield wiper motor module then supplies ground to only the windshield wiper run/park relay coil, activating it. When the windshield wiper run/park relay is activated, the deactivated high/low relay connects voltage to the windshield wiper motor low input activating the wiper motor. The windshield wiper motor module continues to operate the windshield wiper motor in the same manner as in high speed, but in low speed with the wiper motor connected to the low speed input.
Washer System
The windshield washer is activated by the internal wiper motor module when it receives a ground signal input from the multifunction switch. Dependent on the switch selection, the internal wiper motor module activates the windshield washer relay (internal) by grounding the respective relay coil. When the relay is activated, it connects voltage to the washer pump while the washer level switch provides ground to the washer pump.

    Why is it my 2008 chevy uplander rear wiper motor/blade moves some and stops. I let van set 5-10 minutes with key off. Turn on key. Wiper motor/blade moves a few degrees and then stops again. Why?


    Can you move the wiper by hand ? Which does your vehicle have ?
    WDA/Z88 The rear wiper is controlled based on an input from the rear wiper/washer portion of the multifunction switch. When closed, the wiper ON and wiper DELAY switches provide a unique voltage signal to the rear window wiper motor indicating the desired speed. Each switch has a unique resistor that drops the voltage to a specified value which is interpreted by the rear window wiper motor as ON or DELAY. The rear wiper motor receives B+ voltage from the I/P fuse block and accessory voltage from the body control module (BCM).
    W49 The rear wiper is controlled based on an input from the rear wiper/washer switch. When closed, the wiper ON switch provides a voltage signal to the rear window wiper motor indicating rear wiper operation is requested.

    What to check if windshield wiper stop working


    Bummer deal! Some wipers have 4 places to check to see if its an electrical problem. Check the fuse box. It contains postage stamp size fuses. Check your glove box manual for the wipers specific fuse location. Pull it out to look for a break or burn on the part that melts, and it looks like a S in the window on the fuse. A electrical device tool that connects to ground by clip to any metal - and the other ice pick end touches a spot on fuse, is the common way made to check current flow to check fuses. A light on the tool electrical checker will lite if both sides of the fuse lites the light. If good that shows so.

    The other is a solenoid, usually under the hood in a electrical box - so stated. You can switch the wiper solenoid with another to see if its bad. if bad the switch of solenoids will allow the wipers to work.

    The actual switch at the steering column many go bad as well as the motor. A mechic needs to do these and other checks if you can't. Hope these tips works. . http://www.auto-tune-up-and-repair-options.com/

    My windshield wipers will not turn off until I shut the car off. What do you think?


    The wiper module is either bad or the multifunction switch is shorted.Usually the wiper module will cause wipers to only work on certain speeds usually only on high or not at all. the switch on the other hand being shorted is a more likely cause.

    Sounds like an issue with the MFS ( MultiFunction Switch ).

    mcdevito75 here, It could be the dimmer section of the headlite switch, when dark outside put head lites on and see if you can turn the head lite switch either to the left or right to get the instrument panel lights on. Turning the headlites on and off could have turned the switch enough to keep the instrument lites from comming on, specially if your not the only driver.
