Tercel 92 wiper problem

Hi,

Within three months I visited the garage twice and tomorrow wil be my third for the same problem: my wipers fonction normally at times, at times they get slow and sometimes stop. We are having one snowstorm after another in my area this winter and this problem really upsets me as I drive long distances. First the mechanic changed the pivot, than the wiper motor for a brand new one but the problem remains the same. What's worse they seem to have no clue as to what else besides the pivot and the motor might be the problem. Please help.

Your wiper motor has the relay incorperated into it so the only thing left is to make sure the ground for it is tight. Also could be a loose wire somewhere. Take the connector off and put a volt meter on the hot wire. Have someone turn the key and wipers on. Look at the voltage. Is it a stable 12 volts all the time? Let me know what you find.

    I was incoerrect about the wiper relay. They are incorperated into your wiper combination switch on your steering column. I would look at that since its the only thing left. Always make sure you have a good ground it is usually overlooked.

Windshield wipers stopped working with heavy snow cover


The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.

The wiper of my toyota tercel 94 stop working, what should I check?


Hi,

First check your wiper fuse, it is located in your fuse box. The labels of the fuses are all printed on the cover to help and guide what fuses are being use. Note the amperage of each fuse when your going to replace it!

Tell us more if there is any more problem!

Windshield wiper problem


this could be a result of the linkage coming apart this is located under the cowel and not easy to service. It could also be a result of bad splines between the wiper arm adn wiper arm shaft. if the later is the case you can sometimes tighten the 15 mm nut that holds the arm to the shaft. but this will only work once or twice before the arm requires repolacement. remember folks, wipers are your friend in the winter, they are not ice chippers or snow plows, always clear your windshield with an ice scraper and make sure the wiper blades are not frozen to the glass. this small form of torture in the cold will save you big $$$ in the auto repair shops.

Wipers won't shut off


I had the same problem. The problem is in the switch (wiper, turn signal, hi-beam, hazard switch - multi-function switch). The part number is S14349 from BWD. My wipers wouldn't turn off and sometimes headlights wouldn't turn on unless I held the hi-beam switch back for about 5 seconds. After I changed the multi-function switch, the wipers still came on twice, but have been fine since (about a month). I don't know if it helped, but after I changed the switch, I pulled the top cover off the wiper motor housing (under hood against firewall right in front of driver - you have to remove hood weather stripping on top of firewall), checked the electrical connection to motor and also pulled up on ground strap checking the make sure I had good contact with the grounding strap. After I checked all that, the wipers came on once by themselves but I could actually turn them off and they have been fine since (don't know if there was some type of memory that caused the wipers to come on after I changed the switch, but they have been fine since then). Hope this is helpful.
