Wiper not working


Sounds like you damaged the gear drive that operates the wiper arms, time for new wiper motor assembly is my guess. Don't use the wipers to brush off snow, very bad idea, the drive gears are plastic and on this old dog very brittle from age.

Windshield wiper linkage


This is a bit of an awkward one on that car, but you have to remove the wiper arms, then remove the retaining nuts on the spindles, the wiper motor and get to the inner wiper control arms. There's a chance that one of the nylon cups which connect the control/drive arms has popped off and simply needs to be reconnected.

Windshield wipers stopped working with heavy snow cover


The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.

Assuming that you did bump each wiper to make sure it wasn't frozen to the window (sorry, even the obvious has to be stated just in case), it's possible the wiper motor has failed. Occassionally they will fail without even so much as a warning. I've had it happen. But just in case, check your fuses.

I have a 1999 Cadillac deville wipers spotted working.


hi this sounds like the linkage has either snapped or has simply come off the ball joint if you can still hear your wiper motor running this will be it, they are a bit awkward to get to but normally a simple repair. lift your hood ( sorry ime from uk excues me for wrong use of parts lol) and look near windscreen area where the wipers are . look into the gaps vent gaps you will see the linkage put wipers on and see if there is any movment in there, if not then it will be that...hope this sorta helps

Windsheild Wipers will not move, the arm seems to be slipping on the motor shaft,


It sounds like you live in a climate were snow and ice occurs. If so a lot of people leave their wipers on upon shutting off their cars. If you happen to do that and the windsheild had moister on it or if the snow starter falling while your vehicle was still warm it will freeze. The larger the snow amount the stronger the force will be if you start your vehicle up the next morning with your wipers buried in frozen ice & snow. Since the wipers were not shut off the wiper motor will run and the wiper blades will not. This will strip the linkage the wiper arms press onto leaving you with out working windsheild wipers
