SOURCE: Toyota Camry intermittent windscreen wipers

this could be caused by a bad whiper motor or a bad whiper motor switch. check for voltage at the whiper motor itself, if you do have voltage at the motor then the motor is bad.

SOURCE: Windshield wipers work when fuse is in but won't turn off unless you remove the fuse. Won't pass inspection. Help!

Check the relay relay maybe latched on. See if there is an identical relay in the box and swap them if problem goes away replace relay.

SOURCE: Why won't my Windshield wipers turn off?

There is an easy fix for this. Not sure what it is called but your local parts store will have the part you need. Not expensive, easy to change.

Intermittent problems with our windscreen wipers - what can it be?


You could have corrosion in your fuse box. Alternatively get a good battery from someone and drive with it in your car for a day or two. It could be that the battery can't handle multiple electronic device at the same time. Go have a look at the VW Polo site perhaps they may have encountered your problem http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com

My windscreen washer won't work and there is no noise from the motor.


Normally they are fed power off the same fuse as the wipers. If I new the Year, make, model, and engine size I wouldbe able to help you better!

2 things.

2 the stalk from the steering wheel is broken, they have small metal parts inside they sometimes come lose and stop working, just replace it.

Window wiper problem


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.

Intermittent windscreen wipers not working


I have solved the problem of the intermittent windscreen wipers not working. It did turn out to be the relay (R1 - engine compartment fuse box). As the main wipers continued to work it seemed unlikely to be this relay. However the relay has a number of connections and different wiper operations use these different connections. I discovered the solution by using relay R19 (heater blower) as this is the same type. It can be found in the passenger compartment fuse box. It worked. Also the blower still works with the old wiper relay as it seems to use only the same part of the relay as the main wipers did. However, I will replace this one just to be on the safe side. Hope this is useful.
