Rear wiper will not work

I have good rear wiper motor. Fuses look good. I have power to the rear plug. I keep hearing a clicking sound from the hatch door. Is there a relay in there at all?
very frustrated, and cold.

    well, I have found the problem.It is a relay in the front fuse box drivers side, which according to the book, does not exist. it is the R18 relay. changed this for the non existent R19 relay, and it now works nicely. I now have to replace the R19 relay, as it is non existent in the book.
    Obviously it must run something!!!!!!!

There are no relays in the back door that i know of, however it sounds like the gearbox in the wiper motor has broken. if there is power to the plug and a good earth, then its got to be the motor. just one thing to check.. make sure the wiper arm is tight on the spindle. I have seen them come loose and give the impression the motor isnt working, could also explain clicking noise.

2001 expedition rear wiper and washer doesn't work


The rear wiper motor assembly may be defective/seized. You can try turning on the rear wiper and moving the wiper arm with your hand to see if it will move even a little bit. If you can coax it to move, the wiper motor is bad and needs replacement. If it doesn't move, you will have to disassemble the rear hatch panels and test the motor directly for power and ground.

Rear wiper Don't work


Hi,
There is an electric motor that runs the wiper in the rear hatch. Remove the rear plastic panel and verify that the motor is getting 12 volts, using a multi-meter. If it is, then the motor needs replaced. If not then the wiring is likely bad between the switch on the dash/stalk and the rear wiper. The wiring may have broken where it goes into the rear hatch, also.

GL,

Rear wiper, rear defroster & rear wiper fluid all stopped working at the same time. bought a new rear wiper motor installed it and nothing... anyone having or had the same problem in the past?


Check fuse panel ...if fuses for those rear devices are OK look at the wiring at the rear hatch. Possibly inside that door, or a ground condition that is not functioning or disconnected connector related to electrical devices in the rear hatch door.
Good luck!

Windshield wiper for rear window does not work we can hear a clicking sound come from the motor of the rear windshield wiper


If you hear a clicking sound, then you know you have power. Check to see if the motor arm is moving any at the wiper arm.The small cap that covers the wiper arm to motor can be pulled apart, to see if the nut is loose or if the gear housing is stripped on the wiper arm, or if the motor drive is stripped. These are say to check and are cost effective for you.

Blowing dome light and rear wiper fuse.


Sounds like a dead short to me. You will need to find a wiring diagram for this one. Without it, I'd start by unpluging the motor and the light one at a time. Another good place to check is at the rear hatch, where the wiring harness enters the hatch, this is a common area for broken/shorted wires.Check that and let me know, I'll help how I can.
Good luck
