Front Window Wipers will not move

This morning I went to turn on the window wipers and they attempted to move but will not. There was an ice storm yesterday, so I thought they might be frozen. I waited a while and tried again, but nothing. They move approximately 1-2 inches, but that is it. Should I try removing them?

First, make sure thay are not stuck to the windshield, free up the wiper blade and try again. if it still does not work one of two things, the nut has come lose on the wiper arm or a arm or knuckle in the motor assembly is bent or broken. to remove the wiper arm, remove the round plactic cap and remove the nut. be careful removing the wiper they rust on and can break easily, if it won't come off use a wiper puller ( battery puller will also work), you can also use a propane tourch to heat it up. the cowel is held on with torex screws, there is one in each corner and some more in between the fins in the cowel, there is also two plastic phillips screws one in each corner, do not unscrew but turn them 90 degrees either way to release. there also may or may not be 4 wingnuts. under the hood on the cowel. once the cowel is removed you will see the wiper motor assembly. check all the arms and knuckle for damage. hope this helps.

1998 voyager wipers go up when turned on, but hesitate and quiver at the top and need manual help to come down. Is it a wiper motor, wiper module, ice build-up...?


could be a weak motor or a worn bearing on the arm control. if you take the wipers off the window and then turn on and it moves fine its probably a weak motor when the bushes wear out it will not move properly.

2005 impala windshield wiper


the wirpers are connected to a shaft. the shaft is connected to a motor. The shaft must have turned and wipers were stuck and didn't move. So you will need to pull of each wiper arm and reposition with wipers turned off.

2001 sonata wiper fuse keeps blowing


If the fuse blows as soon as you put it in and the wipers are off then you have a short between the fuse block and the wiper switch.

If the fuse blows only when you turn the wipers on then more than likely the wiper motor has shorted and burned out. This one is very likely if the snow storm was heavy and you was driving in it. Cause- Moving large amounts of snow and ice off the window puts a heavy load on the wiper motors.
