The wipers are an electric motor could be the brushes are just worn out, if the stopping was gradual I feel you can eliminate the wiring. Think about purchasing a new motor the brushes might be hard to come by

I have a 1996 Chevy Cavalier. Battery warning light stays on full, battery still charging. Windshield wipers and power windows operate very slowly.


If the electrical items are operating very slowly and the battery light is on,you may have a charging problem.Recheck voltage at battery positive terminal and at alternator output terminal with engine running,you should see around 14.5v at both.

Winshield wiper won't work


This may be a linkage problem. The linkage is what keeps the wipers in sync and from your description that may be where the problem is

2005 audi s4 - windshield wipers stopped working / ceased up. Will go up approx half way, then EXTREMELY slowly continue up then down (approx 20 mins for one cycle). Is this the linkage or another issue?


First time you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows:

1. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!!
2. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen.
3. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. It is necessary to unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and disconnect the electrical coupling (difficult assurance). If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6, 7. If not you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and electric cables.
4. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand. In the most cases the left bearing is out of order (is very hot). This is the most encounter fault of the wipers running at Audi.
5. For have enough space to manipulation the wiper motor together with their mechanism you must extract the plastic cover of the engine computer box, and extract also the box screws. Then you can move slowly the engine computer box, just for a few milimeters.
6. You must disconnect the electrical coupling of the motor (difficult assurance), unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and extract together with the motor. You must move them slowly between windscreen and engine computer box until the wiper motor go out together with the mechanism. This is the most difficult operation!
7. Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. It is not very simply, but it works.
Heed of the windscreen !!!
Refit all in reverse order.

I have a 1999 pathfinder mirrors on both rides and wipers stopped working


HMMMMM???? Number 9 fuse (10 amp) for mirrors, number 19 ,( 20 amp ) for wipers.... the one thing they have in common is the ignition switch. try slowly turning the key with the wipers turned on, if they start to run or stop running, the ign switch may be bad.

Front wipers are moving very slowly and stop.


there is a fuse for the wipers that has a relay for when the wiper motor heats up like from heavy snow and it can cause some problems so check it or get a good mechanic to look at your position.
