Question about 1994 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Windshield wipers work only with wand on high beam.

I only get wipers when the wand is pushed forward in high beams. Then when I move the wand to the left signal the wipers shut off and when moved to the right signal the wipers continue to work again. Once in low beam again the wipers shut down. Are wires touching or is it the relay. Something is shorting or wired incorrectly, what do you think sir?

    I am asking Ford this afternoon how much it will cost to replace the switch. I am going to refer to your answers when I speak to a mechanic. I wonder if I could replace it myself. I am good at wiring and I am photogenic when rebuilding parts. Thank You

    It sounds like you memorized the manual for the sable, would I need a special tool when I remove the wheel and airbag other than the basic mechanical and electrical tools.

    I have a 1993 Ford F-150 5.0 V8. The wipers only run in the longest delay and lo and hi. If you use the turn signals, the other delay settings will work but only wipe once. Then if you wiggle the wand it will engauge again for another single wipe. How can i get my wipers to just work without having to wiggle the wand?

    you could replace it yourself it's a simple unplug and plug situation the only downside is that you will have to remove the sterring wheel and air bag to access it but other than that it's a very simple task

    that's about it the only speacial tool you'll need is a steering wheel puller

2003 envoy low beams will not work.fuses good,bulbs good,replcd turn signal assembly,not relay in fuse box for low beams.only high beam relay.

For the I6 engine there is a relay for low beams, it's relay # 46. Switch it with relay #45 (runs the fan, same model relay) and see if your lights now come on. These 2 relays are the only 2 black ones in there (part # 15016745). Also, try to clean the contacts very well on the fuse box and the relay. If not, you may have some frayed wiring in the harness.

By the way, the high beam relay is #43, the gray one next to the windshield wiper relay #42.frontfuses.jpg

2002 BMW 330XI, high beams do not come on fully when switched to on. Momentary on then off. But they do come on when you flash to pass. low beams and fog lights work good. Any help would be cool! Thanks

check fuse and relay, if its good, than you have faulty switch, only work on low but not high beam, to turn high beam on the switch move forward which is fauty or no contact, flashing high beam move toward you which has a good contact and working. it two switch in one unit.

I removed the tilt steering colum housing to instal a new cruise

The plastic piece goes between the steel rod and cruise/wiper lever. You will have to remove the wheel and the upper bearing housing to get it back where it goes. If you put some wheel bearing grease on it then it will stay in place during reassembly.. Good Luck
