SOURCE: steps for replacing wiper motor for 1998 VW Jetta

remove wipers. remove plastic covering by loosening plastic screws first. unplug wiper motor wires. there are about three 10mm nuts at the motor location and you also have to unscrew the big nuts that were below the wipers when you unscrewed them. replacement is reversal.

Wiper delay does not work


Intermittent wipers: Inside the wiper motor (of most cars) there is a diode or diodes. They burn out or they break. If you replace the diodes the intermittent wipers will work again. If you cannot replace the diodes, replace the wiper motor completely (used or new)

Wipers not working


A little trick to try is untightening the mounting bolts of the wiper motor and then retightening. Sometimes its a matter of re-establishing a good ground.

The wiper parking problem is an internal wiper motor function. Some electric contacts are suppose to derail the motor and it is suppose to cycle into the locked position and turn off. Its last movements are automatic.

The intermittent part of the problem can be the contact switch on the turn stalk but there is a timer box on some models which the stalk switch controls. Some wiper motors have the timer box beneath a shield on the wiper motor. Those controls can be changed.

Would need to scan vehicle to insure the wiper speeds are controlled by the General Module or a wiper intermittent relay....if relay...would locate and replace...if general module.....a reprogram or software update could be in order...possibly replacement.

2001 dodge caravan, intermittent part of the wipers do not work


As the intermittent wipers are based on resistance, try the easiest fixes first:1. Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. Pull the relays for the blower motor and both wiper relays and the 30 amp fuse for the wipers. These are located under the hood in the fuse/relay box. The best way is to be careful and use a set of pliers. The reason you pull the blower relay is so that it is easier to pull the intermittent relay. Clean these off the blades of the relay with a burnishing tool (in a pinch you can use your wife's nail polisher that is like very fine sandpaper. Once the are a pretty silver color, wipe them off with some rubbing alcohol. Put them in and pull them out about 5 times into the relay socket and leave them in. Clean the blades for the fuse with a cue tip and rubbing alcohol and then put the fuse in and pull it out about 5 times then leave it in. Hook up the negative terminal and take the key to the on position and turn the wiper to the lowest position. If it works if should take about 36 seconds between strokes. 2. The next easiest is taking the cover off the top of the steering column and pulling off the wiper switch and replacing it. There are three screws that hold the cover and two that hold the switch plus the electrical connector. You can buy a used one at a "junk yard" for about $20. 3. Replace the wiper motor (takes about a couple of hours start to finish). It involves removing the wipers, the cowl (plastic cover over the wiper motor right below the windshield), loosening and lifting the scissor arms for the wiper arms and removing the motor (this involves disconnecting the power connector and feeding it back to the motor).Hopefully your issue is like 95% of the wiper issues and it is just a little bit of corrosion on the wiper relays and fuse!

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.


i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
Thanks
