SOURCE: Windshield wipers will not turn off, I've replace the turn signal/wiper switch and still not turning off

Sounds like the PARK SWITCH within the WIPER MOTOR is at fault, Only way to beat it is relay the motor. Hope this helps

Car turns over but won't start fuel injector fuse and ignition fuses are good but no power is getting to them. also the stereo and wipers only work when ignition is on accessory. when its on r


Sounds like it could be a bad ignition switch-the electrical part, not the lock cylinder. When key is in the on position (run), those fuses should be powered. Are all the maxi-fuses good? They distribute power throughout the car's electrical circuits-like the fuse panel, for instance, so check the maxi-fuses. If good, probably the ignition switch is bad.

EF Ford Fairmont 1996, accessories stop when ignition switched to start


Eg wipers work while ignition switched to 'accessories' but stop when key turned to 'start'

I had this issue and took me ages and ages of wire tracing and probing. Your fuse box should have the wiper/windows accessories fuses. If you probe them and they aren't showing voltage, check wiring harness, check wiper motor voltage. My ignition barrel was the fault of all this, everything worked when switched to "accessories", but while the engine was running, the accessories turned off. The bottom of the ignition barrel pushed out, as the factory stopper groove bent out. All I did was cold chisel a dent back into the case. BAM fixed my windows/starting/wipers all in one go.

Wipers wont go off


When you turn off the switch, there is a second switch in the wiper motor that continues to run the wipers until they are parked. If the window where that switch does not keep the wipers running is too narrow, the momentum of the motor turning will carry the wipers past the end of that window—they will continue until they are not-quite-parked. But not-quite-parked, in an absolute sense, is not parked at all, and that switch will reestablish contact, running the wipers to try to get them to the parked position.

Once there, the overrun happens again, and the cycle repeats.

Beyond that, if that switch gets stuck it will keep running the wipers, parked or not.

Sometimes the wiper motor can be easily accessed, opened up, and that switch can be serviced and properly adjusted. Sometimes the motor needs to be replaced.

Find the connector that runs the wipers, and disconnect it while the wipers are running. The blades will stop where they are.

intermittently, and briefly, reconnect the wipers trying to get them to move only 5 or 10 degrees at a time. This will avoid the motor get up a head of steam. If the wipers stop responding to this once they are parked, the window that the switch considers "parked" is too narrow. If they just keep responding to the application of power, even when they are really in the parked condition, then the switch has arced shut.

Wipers not working


Things to check for: power at the switch, power at the wiper motor. When you activate the washers does anything happen?
