Re: wipers wont come on
THEY CALL IT YHE WIPER TRANMISSION. THE LINKAGE THAT IS CONNECTED TO THE WIPER MOTOR FELL OFF BECAUSE THE NUT THAT KEEPS IT SECURED TO THE MOTOR LOOSENED & FELL OFF ALLOWING THE LINKAGE TO FALL OFF OF THE WIPER MOTOR.FIRST YOU HAVE TO GET A NEW NUT TO HOLD ON THE LINKAGE (IT MIGHT BE RIGHT UNDER THE WIPER MOTOR IF THERE WAS SOMEPLACE FOR IT TO FALL)REINSTALL THE LINKAGE, (IT ONLY FITS ONE WAY) PUT ON THE NEW NUT (TIGHTEN IT ENOUGH BUT MAKE SURE THE WIPERS CAN STILL ROTATE) AND YOU SET

the inside of the wiper could be stripped out and have no tension to move the wiper try pulling it off and changing it if not need to see how to take it of and maybe the motor could have stripped the gears inside itself.
It Sounds Like, Either The Arms Are Loose ,If You Can Hear Something Moving Behind The Dash, Or The Linkages Are Seized ,If The Motor Just Hums No Movement Heard,In Which Case Try Spraying Q 20 On The Linkage And Try Moving The Wiper Arms By Hand To Get It Going Again, If Not The Motor May Just Be Burn;t Out.
Check to see if the nut is tight on the wiper down at the bottom, secondly turn the wipers on and put your ear down by the wipers to see if you can hear the motor moving. If you hear the motor moving the arms under the plastic sheathing have seperated. Try the nut first see if that fixes your problem then try the rest.
Take your car to AutoZone and tell them. It is either the windshield wiper motor or a small plastic piece that connects the arm to the motor broke. I am leaning toward the plastic piece being broken, it is really inexpensive to fix. The people at AutoZone will be able to check it and tell you exactly hat is wrong. WARNING: watch them and what they do. some people are not as honest as others.
1. Turn on your wipers and pop your hood.
2. If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses.
3. If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken.
4. If the problem is electrical, do the following:
1. Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse.
2. Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground coming out. Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections.
3. Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the following order:
4. In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault. I do not recommend replacing anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing coming out.)
