Question about 1999 Nissan Quest

1 Answer

99 Nissan Quest real wiper runs continually when ignition is on

Rear wiper runs any time ignition is on, and stops when engine is started. Tried pulling the rear wiper fuse to no effect. I pulled each fuse until I found one marked ''Electron'' 10A, also marked ''BAT''. When I pulled that one, wiper stopped, but I don't know what else that fuse powers. Nissan guys didn't know what to do, so they just unplugged the connector to the wiper motor.

    I have a same problem with my front wipers. The problem is seen only when the outside temperature is more than 40 deg F. The Nissan repair shop was not able to diagnose the problem yet.

Principles of Operation
Operation of the windshield wiper and washer is controlled by the front wiper/washer amplifier assembly. The front wiper/washer amplifier input comes from the multifunction switch by means of a voltage divider circuit. A constant voltage is applied to the multifunction switch by the front wiper/washer amplifier. When the multifunction switch is moved into the LO, HI, or intermittent position, the voltage is directed through a series of resistors. This results in various voltages being returned to the module for each switch position. The module then grounds the appropriate circuit, based on the voltage signal received back from the multifunction switch. This causes the wipers to run intermittently, or at the appropriate speed. Voltage is supplied to the wiper motor by the CJB fuse F46 (20A).
When the multifunction switch wash button is depressed, it bypasses all of the resistors returning a full voltage signal to the module. The module then grounds the appropriate circuits to operate the windshield washer pump for as long as the switch is depressed. The windshield wiper speed is dependent on the position of the windshield wiper/washer switch.
Voltage for the windshield washer pump is also provided by CJB fuse F46 (20A).
Operation of the rear wiper and washer is controlled by the rear wiper/washer switch.
Voltage is supplied to the rear window wiper motor by the fuse junction panel fuse F44 (10A).
The rear window wiper motor ground is made or broken by the rear wiper/washer switch. When the rear wiper/washer switch is moved into the WIPER position, it grounds the rear window wiper motor circuit, causing the rear window wiper motor to run once every 10-15 seconds.
Voltage to the rear washer pump motor is also supplied by the CJB fuse F44 (10A). The rear washer pump is directly controlled by the rear wiper/washer switch which makes or breaks the ground for the washer pump motor, depending upon its position.
If the vehicle is equipped with a movable liftgate glass, a liftgate glass switch is utilized to prevent rear window wiper operation when the liftgate glass is open. This same switch also causes the rear window wiper to drop down approximately three inches when the liftgate glass latch is released.

Sometimes when I start my 2004 Santa Fe, the rear windshield wiper comes on. The switch is in the off position. Even if I turn the vehicle off, it will still run until it decides to stop. Help.


If you will find the fuse that controls the rear wiper, and remove it, you can determine if the problem is "bleed over", which can be the result of an automobile accident.
In that case, a pinched wire somewhere can cause this problem.
If pulling the fuse stops it, then suspect the wiper switch itself.
God bless your efforts.

The rear window wiper goes continually. How do we stop it? We have tried removing the fuse for it but we cant figure out which fuse is which - its all in japanese. What do we do?


Sounds silly but if you go to google translate on the internet, you can work out what each Japanese word translates to. It may help, or alternatively, you will need to pull out 1 fuse at a time until the wiper stops. It will probably be a low amperage fuse. Not one of the large ones. Check that nothing else has turned off when you pull the fuse. It will stop your wiper but it may also cause some of the other electrical items to turn off as well such as your radio, washers, front wipers etc. Make sure these still work. If not, you may have to disconnect the wiring from the rear wiper motor which will eman you have to get inside the rear panel to access it.

Nissan Quest 1999 Van - rear wiper seems to be running even if there is no key in the ignition and drains the battery, pulled RR Wiper fuse 10 Amp and it did not help. When the key was inserted into rear...


If you pulled the correct fuse for the rear wiper (Under the Dash) (or under the hood?) sometimes there are 2 fuses. But if you pulled the correct fuse and you still have power going to the wiper, I would pull the fuse on either side of the wiper fuse socket. With the wiper fuse socket empty, pull the fuse on the left or right one at a time, check for power at the wiper motor each time a fuse is pulled. When you find the power source then you'll need to trace your wiring where the wipers and say for example the dome light meet. I can almost bet the wires have rubbed or something like that and are feeding power to each other. Maybe a melted wire or like what I found on my sons car was that the back side of the fuse block had melted from him running all those high power stereos. He melted the block and the connection melted together. Hope this helps.

My rear wipers, rear washer and rear defrost stopped working. I have changed the fuses. what else would cause these 3 to stop?


I had the same problem, 97 4 runner. I followed #1 solution: start engine, lower rear window, raise/close rear window. Turn off engine, restart engine and it should re-set. It did for me.

99 nissan quest p0301, I replaced the sparkplugs already and im still having the same code, whats could it be?


Pretty sure this engine has a distributor. Could be a bad ignition wire, cap or rotor. Pick up all 3 and change em out. Pretty cheap fix. Check ebay and put in "nissan quest ignition". Or take a trip to autozone carquest etc... If your engine had coil packs and not a distributor, it is usually a bad pack. Good luck

Location of front wiper motor relay and code stop working only rear wiper working but when you pull the wiper towards you instead of pushing away? can't find the location and have tried to find relay with...


The rear wiper is on "off" position when you pull the "stick".
The relays are under the steering wheel. if you bend yourself down to the pedals, look up, ant there is a litle door, fixed with some nuts. remove them, pull the plastic just to look inside, and you'll see the relays. the relay that control the wiper system is the bigger one. is one relay for front and back. You could open it and you'll see two electromagnets which controls some contacts. you could try clean them with a soft and clean cloth(tissue). Also check the fuses. The fuses are located on the side panel trim from the driver's door. The fuses for front and back wiper sistem are separated. On the back of the panel from the fuses you'll see a diagram with what each fuse does.Good luck.
