Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I drive a 1995 Honda accord. The other day when it was sleeting my windshield wipers stopped working. It is not the motor or switch because I can turn the switch and hear the motor but the wipers don't move. Any suggestions on what be wrong? And I've already checked the fuse it's fine.

Yes sir! In the future, be SURE the wiper blades are free to move before you turn them on.
Try to find a warm place to work. Remove the wirper arms from the car, you should need nothing more that a screwdriver to gently pry the arm loose from the shaft.
Now, you will need to remove the sheet metal louvred paned that has the two holes for the wiper shafts.
You might be able to do this without removing the hood of the car, maybe not.
That panel is held on with some screws and some plastic buttons, which love to break.
Under that panel is the wiper linkage and the motor.
If you will turn the wipers on now, you will see the motor is no longer hooked to the wiper linkage.
The assembly will come off the car as a unit when you remove 4 screws and disconnect the wiring harness joint.
I'd look for the replacement parts in a junk yard or on e-bay, since car parts stores do not sell replacement parts for this problem.
If you want, you could call a Honda dealer for parts, I don't think they have them, but maybe.
Be Blessed.

SOURCE: Windshield Wipers

Under the cowl (it is a plastic piece that the windshield wipers come out of) are the wiper arms that connect to the wiper motor. There are plastic parts that hold the wiper arms to the wiper motor. Lots of time these plastic parts dry out and break and the wiper arm will fall off the wiper motor. I would bet if you tried to move one of the wipers by hand both of them would move with little resistance. This would tell me that the wiper arms are disconnected from the wiper motor. The parts to fix this are easy to get. I know the motormite HELP line of parts used to have the plastic bushings to fix this problem.

Sounds like the wiper arm has become disconnected. There may be a clip or bushing that has broken or fallen off. The wiper motor/arms etc are accessible by taking the cover off (usually plastic and possibly held in by screws or large plastic slots) that's at the base of the windshield. You may have to lift the hood for access and removal. Just take your time and don't force anything.

It's really simple after that. You turn your motor on and look for moving parts, that'll be the wiper motor. Either it's disconnected at the motor or it be disconnected on the arm. Usually one arm will move both wipers. If you're lucky, maybe it's just fallen off and you can find the clip or bushing and re-attach it. Otherwise, you may have to get a new part, which in this case would probably come from the dealer.

You may possibly also get it from a junkyard, but chances are if it's a small part, then they may not sell it to you. However some junk yards WILL sell you these small parts, and others may even let you pull the part yourself. If you could do this, you could also see how the part properly attaches.

If it's confusing how to re-attach the parts, then you may have to buy a Haynes or Chilton manual to see exactly how everything looks. Diagrams would be great. If there's no good pix in the manual, then try online. The best would be to see fully functional operating wipers on a similar car. Maybe find a buddy to take a peek at his after you practice on yours.

The part if broken should fit multiple years of your make of car.

Get this fixed soon because not only will it not pass inspection, but it is highly unsafe.

Here is a diagram of the fuse box in the interior. This is where the wiper relay is located, #6. Although if you hear sounds from the motor something might be restricting your blades and or the motor is shot and needs to be replaced.

Wipers stopped working. Both wipers sweep when one is moved manually. I think it's the wiper transmission linkage, but I'm not sure. Could it be just the bushing?


Turn on the wipers and listen you should hear the motor running if the Linkage broke, and since the wipers were out of range hitting off the glass that does sound like the linkage.

My widshield wipers dont work and the fuses are fine


To troubleshoot car windshield wiper problems, you need to thoroughly investigate problems with any of its operating parts. Here are some of the things that you need to check to determine why are your car windshield wipers not working.

Check Wiper Motor
The wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.

Check For Break in Connecting Wires
The connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.

Check Wiper Switch
Another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.

Check for Bent Wiper Arms
Bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.

Check For Blown Out Car Fuse
A blown up car fuse could be the culprit that has stopped the windshield wipers from working. Check the fuse assembly under the dashboard of the car. Replacing a blown fuse might fix the problem of windshield wipers not working.

Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working - Things to Check

Sometimes the windshield wiper sprayer stops working which can be very annoying. The washer mechanism is a self cleaning mechanism for the windshield. Here are some of the things that you need to check in case it is not working.

Check Windshield Washer Motor
The windshield washer mechanism might have been impaired due to the malfunctioning of the wiper washer motor. Check if its working and get it replaced if it is beyond repair.

Check Windshield Washer Fluid Level
Sometimes the washer doesn't work because the washer fluid levels are not filled to requisite levels. Filling in fluid might restore normal functioning.

Check For Broken Washer Hose
The connecting washer hose that connects the reservoir to the nozzle, might be broken or worn out stalling the overall operation. Check the hose for leaks and get it replaced.

Check Washer Nozzle For Clogging
Last thing to check is the nozzle of the washer for clogging. An obstruction in the washer nozzle might be the reason for windshield wiper sprayers not working. Using a pin, clean the clogged nozzle. This might restore the sprayer to the normal working condition.

How do i install a windshield wiper motor for a 95 honda accord lx


Well first you will need to take the main rod that moves the wiper blades , this you do by either removing a nut that is holding it on or the cotter pin or half moon key and then remove the bolts holding the motor to the car , but first do not forget to unplug the unit and then just reverse the prosses.

Wiper arm goes off of the windshield when it is raining


Sounds like you just nee to remove them and reinstall them in the correct position. Take them off, run the wipers for one cycle until they park. Install the arms so the blade is about an inch above the bottom of the windshield.
