Question about 1997 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Windshield wipers stopped working randomly

I got in my car yesterday and when i turn them on they will go once but never budge again no matter what speed i turn on. if i manually turn them on (like hold the lever down) they will keep going but any other way won't work. This just randomly started after i hadn't driven my car for a few days.

Usually a sign the delay part of the control has failed.
You may need a mechanic to trace the circuits to verify this.

SOURCE: AC/fan suddenly stops and dinging gas gauge

My fan stopped blowing too!! I was worried that my compressor had went out. The mechanic said that the blower had burned out and he charged me 169.00 for the part and 50.00 for labor.

I have a 2004 Pacifica with 58K miles.

SOURCE: windshield wipers dont work

Fuse # 5 in your panel should be a 20amp fuse, which provides power to wipers. Not 100% sure, but would bet there is a relay in that circuit before motor. Try to feel/hear, exactly where clicking is coming from. It is usually easy to simply narrow the click noise area down, then set finger lightly on relays, and feel it when it clicks. Pull it out & have tested or replace.

SOURCE: windshield wipers on pt cruiser

the pump wire is probably not making good connection with the pump that is why the washer fluid wont work try and clean the connection. the pump is located under the fill tank

check for a bad relay for the wipers not working. the relay will be under the hood or under the dash next to the fuses. the cover will tell you what piece is the relay. the relay controls the delay in the wipers so that is probably bad and you can get them at napa for cheap. and simple to install its just like a fuse.

2013 Lincoln MKX. Windshield wiper jerks to a stop in the middle of the windshield for a few seconds, then working normaly again for about one minute until next dropout.


I wouldn't expect the BCM. The wiper motor and the park switch are integral to the motor. You can have a broken plastic part on the arm pivots causing the problem.

My main windshield wipers stopped working. the rears still work and my turn signals too. basically just the front and fluid and about 4 months after they stopped i randomly hit the switch and they went on...


will try to help. the motor for the wipers may be bad. or it can also be a bad wiper motor switch,remember the tap every once in a while thing and they worked? well that says one or the others bad, with you tapping that switch on every once in awhile and they worked points towards the wiper motor itself. it's not very complicated to replace, but let me suggest that unless you are,ask your local mechanic to give an estimate for replacement of wiper motor.hope this helps and as always,thank you for choosing fixya.com if you would like to hear another solution, please repost and we'll be happy to help!

Check for a loose fuse or loose wiring to the wiper. Also check for tight ground connection at the motor. The 'park' switch which completes each cycle may be intermittent. It might be a worn switch at the steering wheel.

Windshield Wiper Issues


Sounds like the relay (should be found with the fuses) for the wiper system is at fault. Either that or the wiring has shorted somewhere. Most likely a new relay is required.

Wiper blades will not home.


The home position is a function of the wiper motor. You need a new one.

1996 Acura 3.2 TL windshield wiper problem


they have what one guy, I know called a small "transmision" that engages both wipers and the speed. On one car the winshield wipers transmission connections were loose. A small bolt came off.
Check all the workings by running the wipers .
Try to get to the wiper motor assembly and take a look at it. You may have to remove some screws.
