Why wipers don`t work?


check fuses, if good then it could be a bad wiper switch or motor. check for powers and grounds at the motor with the switch turned on. a common problem is the wiper motor looses it`s ground. take a wire long enough to touch one end on the negative battery terminal and the other on the wiper motor, make sure you scratch the wiper motor down to the metal if it starts to work then you will have to supply an auxiliary ground wire to the motor. the other thing is the motor itself may have worn brushes. sometimes with the motor turn on and you tap it with a hammer and it starts to work then the motor will have be replaced.

2000 bonneville wipers wouldnt turn off replaced motor with a used one from junkyard.worked for a while now wipers stop going all the way up


I would pull the motor assembly again and cycle the wipers by hand to get the blade assembly back to park horizontal position then re install. This is common when replacing the motor that the nylon gear assembly in the motor was not in horizontal park position

Replaced fuse,windshield wiper motor, link assembly,and still wont work in 98 lincoln navigator


The only thing left is the wiper switch. Check for power at the wiper motor when in low position (should be a green or white with green tracer wire). Also check the connection at the base of the steering column for the wiper switch.

My front wipers do not work, the washer on the front and the rear wiper works fine, they are all on the same thing


HI. This is a possible motor issue. To confirm, use this procedure. it will help isolate the actual issue at hand.

1.Make sure the battery has a strong charge and is in good condition. Use a voltmeter to get a reading if necessary.

2.Connect a jumper wire between ground and the wiper motor. Turn the key on but don’t start the engine. Turn the wiper switch on. If the motor works, check for a corroded or loose ground connection.

3.Turn on the car key but don’t start the engine. Turn on the wipers. Check for voltage at the wiper motor with your voltmeter. If you get a good voltage reading, turn the key off and disconnect the motor from the wiper linkage.

4.Move the wiper arms by hand. If they are stuck, you have found the problem. If the wiper arms move freely by hand, go to step 5. If voltage is not reaching the motor go to step 6.

5.Remove the wiper motor by disconnecting the plug and removing the bolts using a wrench or ratchet. Use a pair of jumper wires to connect the wiper motor directly to the battery. If the motor does not work, replace it.

6.Turn on the key but don’t start the engine. Get a voltage reading across the wiper switch. If there is voltage, use a jumper wire to bypass the switch, if the motor works now, replace the switch, otherwise go to step 7. If there is no voltage at the switch, go to step 8.

7.Check for continuity at the wire between the switch and the motor. The wire could be loose or disconnected.


8.Check the wire coming from the fuse panel to the wiper switch. It could be disconnected or loose.

Wiper doesn't work


If you can pull and wiggle one wiper blade and the other one moves then the linkage is hooked up then thats good wiggle it with the key on and the switch on and see if it'll start moving if it does it may work awile but the motor ( wiper) is bad. nothing happens the fuse could be blown as someone tried to make it work when stuck in ice. or the switch got brocken or wet and now its bad. Test light at the plug where it connects to the motor is next as all the wires come hot in the different positions of the switch even in off theres a wire hot. With it plugged in and there is more than one wire hot at a time then the ground is bad and the bolts that hold it on are dirty or loose or both. Power and grond are both good the motor is bad. Toyotas are good and the peaple the work on them are not so look for things that are out of place or disconnected and make sure that every thing is plugged in and re plugged in before you try anything else including the connections at the battery as one of them only runns the wiper

Wipers do not work. i replaced the wiper switch and checked the fuses ,The red wire to the wiper moter has power ,how do I know if the wiper moter is defective?


there are usually two hot wires going to the wiper motor .. also a ground strap that may be bad ... one of the hot wires is always on if the key is on ... that for homing the wiper blades when you turn them off .. the other power input is from the wiper control circuit .. its only on if the wiper switch is turned on .. if you have power on the homing input then that wont do anything unless the wipers are not in home position .. if you have power to the "run" wire of the motor and the ground is good then the motor should run unless its defective .. you can put a jumper cable from the ground of the wiper motor to the engine block or battery neg, to check if the ground wire is causing the trouble .. that happens frequently in some models but not sure about your E250 ...

Wipers wont work


1.  Turn on your wipers and pop your hood.   2.  If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses. 3.  If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken.   4.  If the problem is electrical, do the following:      1.  Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse.      2.  Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground               coming out.  Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections.       3.  Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the                       following order:           Fuse box           wiper switch           wiper motor      4.  In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault.  I do not recommend replacing                 anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing           coming out.)
