Question about 1993 Ford Crown Victoria
The wipers don't go down when you turn them off
In cold weather, ice sometimes forms in the lower curvred area below one of the wipes, which prevents the arm from returning. This can happen if the car was been shut off with the wipers up. You will need to raise the hood to see into the wiper crank rod cavity.
It is also possible for nuts or debris to fall into that same cavity and cause similar symptoms. In the case of debris, the wipers may operate, but may hesitate or stop when the debris or nut is encountered.
In such case, "donot" continue to operate the wipers as the resultent damages are costly & repairs will not be necessary if the debris is removed promptly.
P.S. Do not force the wiper arms. lef
