2001 Ford Expedition: Rear Wiper won't work.

I have replaced the relays for both the front and the rear wipers, and the motor in the back door for the rear wiper. Can hear the motor when I turn on the wipers, but the wiper itself doesn't move.

Don't make this more difficult than it is. One of the gears inside the wiper motor is made out of bad quality plastic, and wont last very long. Replace it with a used one is just a wast of money, get a brand new one.

SOURCE: the rear wiper workes if

Hi

You may want to check one thing. Roll the rear window down a few inches and then rolll it back up. There must be a relay switch to tell the car the window is open. If that does not work, it might be the relay switch.

There are three possible points of failure; the motor, the parking switch, and finally the switch that turns it on.
Obviously, the motor is located in the hatch itself but also there will be a parking switch that supplies power to the motor after the user switch is turned off and until the blade is in the park position. The user switch is of course located on the dash or in a stalk on the steering column. Check for voltage with a multimeter at the motor and/or continuity of it. You should be able to eliminate the items that are working in 20 or 30 minutes.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Ford Expidition 2001, rear wiper is not working, water sprays but no action


The washer and wiper are two separate circuits. At the central junction box check 15A fuse 14 which feeds the battery saver relay. At the battery junction box, check fuse 12 which feeds the rear wiper down and up relays. Rear wiper action is controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM). If the rear wiper switch is set to one of the intermittent positions, the battery saver relay closes to apply power to the wiper down and up relays. The GEM selects high/low or park operation. Note that there is an internal thermal breaker in the rear wiper motor so if everything else checks out, the motor may have overheated and opened that fuse. also, the rear wiper relay(s) could be defective

How do I fix or replace the rear wiper motor


Hello,

  1. Disconnect the cable running to the negative terminal on the car's battery. To do this, loosen the nut on the cable clamp until the clamp is loose enough for you to slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
  2. Pull the wiper arm away from the rear windshield until the wiper arm locks into a vertical or semi-vertical position or is perpendicular to the rear windshield.
  3. Remove the nut holding the wiper arm assembly to the rear wiper motor.
  4. Pull the wiper arm off the wiper motor assembly.
  5. Unplug the rear wiper motor plug/harness.
  6. Remove the screws holding the rear wiper motor to the inside of the vehicle at the base of the rear window.
  7. Pull the rear wiper motor off.
  8. Install the new wiper motor and put the wiper motor and arm assembly back on the vehicle by reversing the completed steps.

1999 rear wiper motor on a Ford Expedition


take door panel off by prrying clips out, then you should see the motor. unplug the wire harness and take the wiper arm off the outside. Should have to just unbolt it from here, otherwise if its rivited in, you'll need to drill them out and replace them with bolts/washers/lock washer/lock nuts when you put it back in.

Rear wiper Ford Explorer 1998 won't work. Replaced motor and then found there was no power to connector at wiper motor. Fuses good both on fuse panel and power distribution box. Washer on wiper arm works.


Look for the fuse for the rear wiper motor is a 15 amp mini-fuse , in location # 8 of your POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX in the engine compartment. Check in the PD BOX for; - relay # 8 is the rear wiper down relay , and - relay # 10 is the rear wiper up relay .

2005 ford expedition rear wiper


Sounds like a problem within the wiper motor not turning off at rest or not reaching it's rest point to be able to turn itself off, probably needs a new motor. Disconnecting it should have no relation to the front washer operation, you can confirm this by reconnecting the wiper motor to try.

Rear wiper does not work at all. front wipers work fine. rear washer works


1. check the fuse to the rear wiper motor
2. check for power to rear wiper motor at the motor (power wire going in to the wiper motor with rear wiper switch on)
If you have good fuses & have power going in to the rear wiper motor...
3. Pull old rear wiper motor and install a new rear wiper motor.
Thank you please drive thru......
