SOURCE: wipers stopped working

check if the base of the wiper arm is rotating free and check if all the elbows are connected. sometimes, an elbow could get disconnected because a loose bolt or something like that.

SOURCE: Went on a journey in

on most cars there is a parking circuit within the motor mechanism which returns the arms to the rest position after the inside wiper switch is turned off. so there is always some power going to the wiper motor. again on most cars the problem you describe is generally a defect in that circuit. however on some cars this circuit is in an external box attached to the wiper motor. so you need to find out if that circuit is contained within the SaaB wiper motor or is external. if there are any dealers left you could call one and ask at their service desk. if it is internal then you are going to need a new wiper motor.

My wipers on my 94 ford ranger stop in the up position, it started with only working on high but then that stopped and it started stopping in the up position, I replaced the multi switch and motor still...


Sounds like the switch in the wiper motor has gone bad. You would have to replace the wiper motor to fix this problem. There are contacts inside the wiper motor head, when you turn them off it supplies power until the wipers return to the resting position and it opens the contact and then they stop. I hope you find this useful and helps you solve your issue.

Monowiper works fine when in full wipe but when in intermittent wipe and park mode it stops 3 inches too high ??


It sounds like the wiper parking position relay has failed. You see, when you turn on the wiper a series of relays on the actuator side are energized and cause the wiper motor to turn on and move the mono-wiper through its arc.

When it reaches the maximum extent of its travel, the wiper circuitry then reverses the arms direction and it swings back. This goes on until you turn off the wipers by turning off the ignition key or turning off the power switch.

When you turn off the wipers, the parking circuitry is activated. The central feature of this part of the wiper circuitry is the parking position relay. As the wiper begins to de-energize the parking position relay is activated. The position relay ensures that the wiper returns gently to the same position each time you turn off the wipers.

If the parking position relay weren't there, the wipers would park wherever they stopped on the windshield. However, the relay circuitry charges when you hit the off button and ensures that the wiper arm sweeps down to the same spot each time. If it does not activate, the wiper arm stops as soon as you turn off the power, as noted. This means that the wiper might, one time, stop in the center of the windshield or it might stop all the way to the left of right.

Aside from its complete failure, manufacturers build in telltales that indicate when the circuit is about to go. One of them is the wiper blade's parked position. Normally, the position relay ensures that the de-energized wiper circuit settles gently to the bottom of the windshield, as noted. However, if the position relay is failing most manufacturers have it park some distance from the bottom of the windshield to give you a head's up that the relay is on its way out.

Since the wiper circuits are fairly involved, it is best to leave it to a trained professional to do the work. However, if you feel you have the expertise to do it, your first step is to obtain the serviced manual for your vehicle. The service manual will give you the step-by-step repair procedure.

Since all parts of the wiper circuitry are related be careful, if you are repairing it yourself, that you replace each component according to the instructions as you might damage something else inadvertently.

After replacing the wiper motor and linkage bushings on my Grand Voyager SE, the wiper arms stop in the straight up position when ''at rest''. Help please


Remove the arms,and place them back on where they need to go,do not turn the wipers on,do this as they set now.If the wiper blades when turned on go off the left side of the windshield ,then you will have to remove everything again,and move the wipers down in the rest position,and align everything up to the rest position,with the wipers at rest,and the motor at rest.

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
