Question about 1999 Nissan Terrano

Open Question

Nissan Terrano front and back wipers start involuntarily

When it's raining heavily the front and back windshield wipers continue to run even though they haven't been turned on by me. This happens usually about a minute after I start the car. Both front and back wipers start going at the same time so I suspect some kind of a wiper switchbox is full of moisture.

SOURCE: The wiper arms on my 2001 Nissan Pathfinder SE don't work.

there are no screws they are retainers that pop off / the trick is to be careful pulling off the vent cowl panels because the clips can be hard to get look what side you need to take off and their may be ends which should come off first.

SOURCE: 92 300zx electrical problem

My first guess would be the voltage regulator (most likely this one is in the alternator) is bad. The voltage produced by the alternator is varying widely causing, as in these two examples, lights to dim when output drops below normal and wipers to run fast when output goes above normal.

Solution would be to get alternator output checked and if alternator fails test, replace it.
A place like autozone can test your alternator, I think, for free.

SOURCE: How do I access the windshield wiper assembly?

You have to remove the wiper arms by prying off the black platic piece over the nut. Remove the nut and the wiper arms. There should be 5 places on the black plastic piece that runs the length of the windshield. Remove 4 of them by prying them out. The one is the middle is a screw. Pull away the plastic piece and you should have access to the mechanism below. I think you need to replace the linkage if it has fallen off.

Water on passengr side floor


Some ideas for you:
Usually the problem is the drain hose from the air conditioning in your vehicle is leaking or plugged up or was damaged somehow and the condensate water is running onto your floor. Was the car even in an accident where the right front fender was involved? Might you have insects such as a mud-dauber wasp might have built a mud nest inside the bottom of the drain tube? The drain tube usually would drain the water only when running the A.C. out under the feet of your passenger, but under the car, not inside.
I just finished two years of chasing a leak that was on the driver's side of an old Honda Civic, to find salt had eaten a hole in the firewall under the windshield behing the driver's wiper assembly.

Water leak after rain, rear floorboards soaked? HELP!


a couple things to look at if it has a sunroof the sun roof would have drain hoses that run down in each corner next you need to look at the cowl this is the section in front of the windshield that has a drain on it as well if you find nothing there the next step would be to remove the seats and carpet and sit in the car while running water over it either way you should remove the carpet and make sure it is dry all the way threw or mold will start to grow and you will never get ride of it not good for your heath other key spots to look at is if the windshield was ever replaced it could be a poor seal

Replacing windshield wiper bushing nissan altima 99


This bushing is a pain to install, i have done many of these and end up messing them up before i get one on, to tell you the truth it does not last.I have tried to save customers money by installing the bushing and it comes back to bite me, they get mad because the wiper linkage fell off again in the rain, the sad part was that they were advised that the fix may not hold but they agreed to it to save money, i then found out that the linkage arm could be replaced , it only costs 12.00.
there are many auto part stores that sell it even the dealer, Dorman is one company, you can google it.
The way i get these bushings on it by applying a little grease around bushing and then with two sockets and a vise, i then press bushing into arm. good day hope this is helpful.

2004 Jeep rain sensing wipers continue to run regardless of setting or amount of rain


a couple of thoughts:
Has your windshield just been replaced?
The sensor is up by the rear view mirror, is it plugged in all the way?
Do you have the right size wiper blades on your vehicle? (too short of a blade misses the rain sensor and does not wipe it clean)
How good are your blades? ( as above, to turn off the rain sensor the blade needs to wipe it clean)
The rain sensor works by projecting multiple inferred beams to the inside of the windshield, like a prism, they reflect back to collectors. when there is a water droplet on the outside of the windshield it changes a beams trajectory and it misses the collector thust turning on the wipers.
(yes, this all happens in that little sensor up by the rear view mirror.)
check to make sure the wiper switch is in the right position.
also....I've seen rain sensors not work properly when the hood or doors are open.
hope this helps

Mercedes c230 windshield wiper starts on its own


Car has rain sensing windshield.Most likely you have the wiper on/off level in the intermittent position,which turns on the sensor. When the sensor detects moisture or even dust sometimes. It turns on wipers. Just make sure the wipers are off and not in the intermittent position.

99 Nissan Quest real wiper runs continually when ignition is on


Principles of Operation
Operation of the windshield wiper and washer is controlled by the front wiper/washer amplifier assembly. The front wiper/washer amplifier input comes from the multifunction switch by means of a voltage divider circuit. A constant voltage is applied to the multifunction switch by the front wiper/washer amplifier. When the multifunction switch is moved into the LO, HI, or intermittent position, the voltage is directed through a series of resistors. This results in various voltages being returned to the module for each switch position. The module then grounds the appropriate circuit, based on the voltage signal received back from the multifunction switch. This causes the wipers to run intermittently, or at the appropriate speed. Voltage is supplied to the wiper motor by the CJB fuse F46 (20A).
When the multifunction switch wash button is depressed, it bypasses all of the resistors returning a full voltage signal to the module. The module then grounds the appropriate circuits to operate the windshield washer pump for as long as the switch is depressed. The windshield wiper speed is dependent on the position of the windshield wiper/washer switch.
Voltage for the windshield washer pump is also provided by CJB fuse F46 (20A).
Operation of the rear wiper and washer is controlled by the rear wiper/washer switch.
Voltage is supplied to the rear window wiper motor by the fuse junction panel fuse F44 (10A).
The rear window wiper motor ground is made or broken by the rear wiper/washer switch. When the rear wiper/washer switch is moved into the WIPER position, it grounds the rear window wiper motor circuit, causing the rear window wiper motor to run once every 10-15 seconds.
Voltage to the rear washer pump motor is also supplied by the CJB fuse F44 (10A). The rear washer pump is directly controlled by the rear wiper/washer switch which makes or breaks the ground for the washer pump motor, depending upon its position.
If the vehicle is equipped with a movable liftgate glass, a liftgate glass switch is utilized to prevent rear window wiper operation when the liftgate glass is open. This same switch also causes the rear window wiper to drop down approximately three inches when the liftgate glass latch is released.
