Question about 1997 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

Windshield wipers operate inconsistently

Sometimes they run a sweep or two when the switch is off. On intermittent low, they sometimes run at a higher speed. Sometimes they continue to run after being turned off.

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 my windshield wipers running in the off position, it's like they are running in the intermittent position, but it's in the off position.


    When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

    Wipers dont work


    This is a complex wiper system . Here are all the components involved !
    The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
    ?€¢
    Windshield wiper/washer switch


    ?€¢
    Body control module (BCM)


    ?€¢
    Wiper 1 relay


    ?€¢
    Wiper 2 relay


    ?€¢
    Wiper diode


    ?€¢

    ?€¢
    Windshield wiper transmission


    ?€¢
    WIPER/SW 10A fuse


    ?€¢
    WIPER 25A fuse


    Circuit/System Description
    The body control module (BCM) controls the wiper motor based on input from the windshield wiper washer switch. The BCM monitors the wiper washer switch through three separate signal circuits and a ground circuit. The windshield wiper switch high signal circuit is used to determine high speed wiper operation, the windshield wiper switch low signal is used to determine low speed, intermittent, and mist operation through the use of a resistor ladder, and windshield washer switch signal circuit is used to determine washer operation. The windshield wiper motor park operation is controlled by the BCM. The BCM recieves an input from the park switch to determine wiper blade position. When the wiper blades are at the bottom of the windshield glass in park position the wiper park switch will open and the circuit will be pulled up to B+ by the BCM. The park signal will be pulled to ground by the wiper motor park switch while the wiper blades are not in the park position.
    The BCM controls the windshield wiper motor through two output controls, controlling two relays which determine the desired wiper speed, high or low
    Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
    The body control module (BCM) monitors the voltage on the windshield wiper switch signal 2 circuit for diagnostic purposes. If the circuit is shorted to voltage while the driver is commanded OFF, the BCM will store DTC B3715. If the circuit is shorted to ground while the driver is commanded ON, the BCM will store DTC B3715. Refer to DTC B3715.
    It would be best to have a factory scan tool to diagnose this problem . it would make it easier anyway .

    Why won't my windshield wipers turn off. the low intermittent wiper setting is always on


    The off switch is actually inside the wiper motor. When you turn off the wipers from inside the car it sends a signal to the wiper motor to park position. Once it's parked it shuts off the power to the motor. You need a new wiper motor.. Sometimes you can get replacement parts. Check with the dealer to see what's available or try a junkyard to save some money.

    Mercedes c230 windshield wiper starts on its own


    Car has rain sensing windshield.Most likely you have the wiper on/off level in the intermittent position,which turns on the sensor. When the sensor detects moisture or even dust sometimes. It turns on wipers. Just make sure the wipers are off and not in the intermittent position.

    Windshield Wiper System The windshield wiper system consists of :
    • Windshield wiper motor (17508) (F-type).
    • Washer system.
    • Windshield wiper control module.
    • Turn signal and windshield wiper switch (13K359).
    The windshield wiper control module is:
    • Located at the instrument panel fuse panel.
    The windshield wiper motor is:
    • Attached to the cowl top extension (021A36) .
    • Connected to windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft (17566) .
    The turn signal and windshield wiper switch features a:
    • Rotary wiper switch.
    • Push type washer actuator.
    OFF/Low/High Speed
    • Has a two-speed, permanent magnet, three brush electric windshield wiper motor .
    • The windshield wiper motor has a brush rigging that permits selection of low or high speed.
    • When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the LO position, the common brush and the blue/orange wire brush are used, and the windshield wiper motor operates at low speed.
    • When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the HI position, the common brush and the white wire brush are used.
    • In HI position, electric current will bypass a portion of the armature winding causing the windshield wiper motor to operate faster.
    • When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is moved to the OFF position, the windshield wiper motor will continue at low speed until the park switch outer contacts open.
    • When the park switch contacts open, the windshield wiper motor stops in the park position.
    Interval
    When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the interval position:
    • The wipers make single wipes separated by pauses.
    • The rotary switch is on the end of turn signal and windshield wiper switch .
    • The length of the pause can be set from approximately 1 to 17 seconds.
    • Length of pause decreases as the rotary switch is rotated away from off.
    • Length of pause increases as the rotary switch is rotated toward off.
    While in the interval wiper mode:
    • It is normal to hear a slight click at the beginning of each on/pause cycle. NOTE: When using interval wipers, the first wipe may not occur until after a pause of up to 17 seconds.

    Windshield wipers intermittent on 2002 Windstar


    2002 Windstar wipers would come on by themselves, or not work set on intermittent, driver door lock would not work sometimes, ABS and brake light would come on sometimes, the problem was in the park switch inside the wiper motor. I replaced with wrecking yard wiper motor $44.95 w/13 month warranty. no more problem. check how many pins on connector plug, mine had 5 on the wiper motor side.Take the wiper assembly off of the metal cowl, 2 nuts, & I bolt, it is easier to snap the actuator pieces off of the wiper motor that way.
