Question about 2000 Acura TL
The windshield wipers on my 1996 Acura 3.2 TL stopped working. When I turn them on, they do not wipe the windshield. Every now and then they will work once or twice then stop again. If I pull the wiper blade across the window it will sometimes cause it to wipe again once or twice. It only started happening after it got cold this winter (maybe just a coincidence). I was thinking that if it was an electronic problem, it would not work at all. If it was mechanical, such as a gummed up linkage, it seems like I it would make a sound, but when I am standing outside with the switch turned on, I do not hear the motor "trying". Thanks for any help you can give me on this.
They have what one guy, I know called a small "transmision" that engages both wipers and the speed. On one car the winshield wipers transmission connections were loose. A small bolt came off.
Check all the workings by running the wipers .
Try to get to the wiper motor assembly and take a look at it. You may have to remove some screws.
