Indicators only work spradically

Indicators suddenly stop working, sometimes only one side works, then they work again. The windscreen wiper seem also affected as I couldn't turn them off recently until I stopped the engine.

Hi Team,

found a good garage who diagnosed the problem was due to a failed relay; relay and stalk have since been replaced. The windscreen motor is a separate issue and also needs replacing soon. So I'm happy my elderly Merc is back on the road again.

Why has my drivers windscreen wiper suddenly stopped working?


There is one motor driving both wiper arms. If one side has stopped and the other side still works, it is likely that the point there the are connects to the drive is stripped or slipped off. Check at the point where the driver side wiper arm is attached to the drive / pivot point

Ford Focus CL 2003, Door open light keeps flashing, indicators either trip out or go double speed when door open light on.


At the door jam,check the condition of the pin switch. The switch may be cover with a boot.
Compare the condition of this pin switch to the working side.
Clean the general area and re-test.

Toyota Corolla 1993:\r\nMy windscreen wipers don't work, all of a sudden they started to die. I replaced the windscreen wiper motor and I tried to attach it to the power socket and it did work but when...


It is possible that you tightened the bolts for the arms themselves to much and it is to much resistance for the motor. Try loosening the bolts a bit and see if that helps. Aside from that make sure that you are getting a full 12V to the plug by testing it with a multimeter for DC Voltage. Hope this helps you.

Front windscreen wiper wont stop why its a mitsubishi lancer evo4 i was touching the windscreen washer pump which had ceased working wipers came on and wont stop have to take the fuse out to stop them


Most cars turn on the wipers when the washer pump is turned on. Look for a stuck switch or relay in the washer circuit. It seems that the wipers think that the washer is on.

Window wiper problem


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.
