Question about Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

No juice to my windshield wiper motor (2004 Hyundai Sonata)!

OK, here's a challenge for you. I have a perfectly fine wiper fluid motor (tested with alternate battery) but no juice getting to it. The relay which controls the wipers and washer motor works fine (tested it too). When I press the wiper motor switch, the wipers move but motor is washer motor is quiet (they connect to same relay as the one I tested above). I think there is a short somewhere because I have had electric problems in the past (i.e. headlights suddenly dim while driving and burn out often). The lights do not burn out anymore since I replaced the timing switch. Is there another place along the way between relay and motor that wired could short out? Please help if you can!

    No juice is getting to the wires. There is obviously a short somewhere between the relay and the pump.

SOURCE: Low Washer fluid warning light came on my Lexus

There is a little float mechanism inside the washer tank that is probably stuck or binding. If the wiper/washers work, you have power to the fluid tank.
Pull of the top and see if you can locate it. You might need a piece of flexible, fine wire to GENTLY help it along...

The fuse for my wipers keep blowing. Tested the windshield wiper motor and still blows. Frustrated and don't know what to do next.

Try disconnecting the wiper motor, then either put in a fuse to see if it blows, or use a tester to see if there is a short on the wiper motor side of the wiring. Isolate the problem, and you will find it.

Hyundai sonata 2004 electric problem, any suggestions?

The three circuits you mentioned get power from different sources. So it would have to be a point where they meet before the fuses, or a ground connection problem. It should be possible to trace the circuits back to the problem with the right wiring diagrams. You may need a shop manual to do it.

Trying to locate a short in my 2004 hyundai sonata, any suggestions?

It won't be a "Short" if the fuses don't blow.
You state the Wipers don't work, then further down you say they do, makes it hard to give advise if you're not accurate.
Without seeing the vehicle, I'd be leaning towards a loose Earth connection somewhere.

My windshield washer motor in my 2003 Hyundai Sonata does not make any noise nor dispense any windshield washer fluid when I turn it on, but the wipers do engage

Is your wiper fluid level good?Look for leaks at pump,it's connected to container,also check your hoses leaving pump to windshield,could be loose or binding.

2000 HYUNDAI ACCENT, problem is the Windshield Wiper operation is malfunctioning, in the Delay mode, and in the off position, Windshield Wiper arms/blades stop at the half point on the Windshield glas

The park position is controlled inside the motor/actuator assembly. Not sure if it can be repaired. See if it is assembled with screws versus rivets. A new assembly is less than $100.
