Hi my name is Allen!

To replace the switch first remove the rubber handle for the tilt wheel by pulling it straight toward the steering wheel, because there is a torks head screw under it. Next remove the two torks head screws on the bottom of the cover. Next remove the rubber cover for the shifter and slide it out of the way. Next take the two screws out of the switch and remove it. I'm assuming you are talking about the swich on the steering column.

For further asistance you may reach me at FixYa!

Why,is it my intermittent wipers don't work


The problem will be either a bad switch [bad switch contacts for the intermittent position] or a bad W/S wiper control module. You can test the switch by unplugging it and using an ohm meter to check it. Unfortunately for you, on this car, the control module is built into the wiper motor, so if the switch tests OK, you will need to replace the wiper motor/control module assembly.

What would cause the windshield wipers on my recently purchased Jeep Patriot Sport work on every speed except the high speed. High speed doesn't work at all.


The intermittent switch has a bad contact in it for the high speed, i would say, most likely will have to replace it.

Intermittent wiper


what car, what year? gee? a suz, what?
it can only be 4 things. (all cars)
1: the wiper motor is bad. (it has contacts inside for timing.
2: the wiper shaft is stripped, nah you said both stalled.
3: the wiring is bad.
4: the combo switch for the above is bad.

DIY, with what , no tools? no meter.?
with no tools one can only GUESS,
roll dice, and replace a part.
after spending $500 on parts and the wires are good then what.
yes, buy a meter.

it could be a bad ground wire.

when you turn on most wipers, the combo switch sends
that signal( just 12v ) to the motor.
the motor is self booting, that is , it only needs the start up
and then it self provides its own power,
ive restored wiper motors, many.
then the motor runs until it his the dead spot in ITS, internal
sustain switch and the halts. if the combo switch is off.
but if the wiper fails to return, this is a bad wiper motor.
(overloaded by ice, sure)
the motor can fail 2 ways, but
id say the sustain switch is at EOL. end of life.

this is the most common design.
check your FSM for yours. the factor service manual.
or alldata dot com. sure.

The 2004 Nissan Sentra I own intermittent wipers don't work. Can anyone tell me how to fix them?


The intermittent function for your wipers is controlled by the wiper control amplifier. This is an integral part of the wiper (combination) switch and is serviced only by replacing the switch assembly.

Windshield wipers work but interminent settings don't


most likely cause is the wiper switch has gone bad and unable to 'time' the intermittent speeds.the intermittent speeds work on a resistor type system where low and high speeds add direct voltage.

I have replaced the wiper switch on my 1990 F 250 and it still is not working properly. Since the wipers work I am assuming it is not the motor. That seems to indicate it is something called the...


Hi:
If your truck has a wiper switch that you rotate counter clockwise to get the intermittent wipe mode, and turn clockwise to get to the low and high settings, then your truck has a interval wiper relay module. You could have a bad wiper switch assembly too, as the intermittent part of the switch is seperate from the low and high wiper switch. It is a inexpensive part, less than $20 for the switch, and the interval wiper relay part is somewhat expensive, 70-100 bucks or so. My truck didn't have intermittent wipers when I bought it, so I went to a junk yard and removed a switch and a module from a wrecked truck for $40, and it has worked fine ever since. Maybe you can find a good used part to swap into your truck for testing? Once you buy new electrical parts, you cant return them!

Windsheild wipers not working, tried another wiper motor and fuses are ok am i missing a inline fuse or do i have to replace the switch?


could be the switch.but if it has intermittent wipers i think,not sure though, that that year has an intermittent wiper modul at base of steering column or near there. if it does unplug the two connectors to it and plug them into each other.if they now work then a new module is needed. but you dont need to replace it, you just wont have intermittent

1996 chevy truck 1500. my windshield wipers work


Check for a loose fuse or loose wiring to the wiper. Also check for tight ground connection at the motor. The 'park' switch which completes each cycle may be intermittent. It might be a worn switch at the steering wheel.

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.


i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
Thanks
