Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

The windshield wipers on my 1986 Toyota pickup just stopped working and I'm stuck in heavy rain. Any troubelshooting ideas?

Wipers were working when truck started, but went down about a mile into the trip and didn't come back up again. The fuse looks okay. I need to jury-rig something so I can get safely off the San Mateo bridge--currently in the employee parking lot of the toll bridge, which is safe, but ot accessible to AAA or tow trucks. Is there anything I can try while I wait for the rain to die down?

Check the Relay switches in the fuse box and make sure there's a good connection to the motor that runs the wipers it can be found bottom of the windscreen under the hood.

Make sure wiper arms are tight they are on a spline also where the wiper arm transmissin conects to the wiper motor therw is a nut that holds a z shaped bracket that losens up and oblongs the rectangular slot so the wipers stop with the least resistance.

'97 Maxima Windshield wiper problems


Check to make sure your fuse is set all the way down first. Could be a bad ground too. Check the wiring at the wiper motor and maybe clean the ground and terminals with either alcohol or electric cleaner and make sure the are dry before you plug it back in. It sounds like a power to the wiper motor issue. If that doesn't fix it your wiper motor may have an internal short.

May want to look at replacing the wiper circuit board.It is located on the firewall adjacent to the wiper motor and has a some what square black cover with 3 torx screws and wireing harness pluged into the side.We had a truck that every time you washed it the wipers would stay on until it dryed out.You can try removing it and spaying it down with contact cleaner just watch the brease on the two contact tips.Well hope this helps.
