Question about 1999 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

99 Ford Windstar:

I have a 99 Windstar and about a week ago the front wipers would not move more than 3 to 4 inches while on the intermitant setting. I could only move them when they were on the fast settings. Now they will not work at all. Im stumped. Anybody have any ideas please let me know.

    I do have the same problem. I'll try the WD-40 solution and see what happens.  Just on the side of caution, does anybody know if here is some kind of "intermittent wiper control module" that is separate from the motor that could be behind the problem?

Either the linkage is dry, needs lubed up, or the wiper motor is shot. more than likely it is the linkage just needs lubed up. WD-40 works great!

My 2000 Ford Windstar LX is randomly losing all power & shutting down for 2-5 seconds while driving. Everything stops working ( like theres no battery in the car ), then it comes back and starts right...

If you just had your battery replaced recently before that, Either your positive or negitive terminal is probably loose and needs tightened. It may get jarred around, and do that shutdown your 2-3 times, until something jars it to a better connecting position.
