If the wiper motor isnt coming on, check the switch with a test light or voltage tester, unplug the motor turn switch on test the wires that go to the motor, if the are not hot, its your switch, if they are hot, its your motor.

2010 Reg Ford Focus 5 door hatch rear screen wash not working. Front is OK. How do I fix it?

the washer fluid could be empty / the fuse for the wiper blew / the relay went bad /if you tried to use the wipers without clearing ice away you blew the fuse/ if you just put water in instead of washer fluid it's frozen/ if the wiper works and there is windshield fluid in the tank and not water and all fuses are good the pump motor for the fluid went and is easy to change

1988 jeep cherokee,6 cylinder my front windsheild wipers dont work.fuse is good.the wiper motor makes a noise when its turned there a relay that could be faulty?wiper switch is the same as the turn...

No relay in the circuit.
There is a delay module but if it fails that usually causes the wipers to stop in the middle of travel or only run on high.
And the switch is working if you hear noise coming from the motor. The wiper switch is not the same switch as the turn signals but it is near that assembly.
I would say if you have power to the wiper motor the motor is probably dead or something happened to the linkage to the arms.

Where is the fuse for the wipers on an 1988 Cressida. I checked the driver side wall, not there.

Not 100% sure but check under the hood at the back of the motor where the wipers are there may be a fuse box there or on the passenger side under the dash board some cars have a fuse box on both sides! HOPE this helped Good Luck!

Im having problems withmy wipers they dont start i think it can be some kind of relay problem but dont know where

use a test lamp to check for power ..check to ensure fuse is not loose or blown and possibly if it s intermittent wipers the lever could be bad if you have power there to the wiper motor and the fuse is good most likely the wiper lever is gone you will need to replace it they are best from a junkyard about 50.00 or 195.00 from a dealer plus installation fees but ck for power 1 st

Inconsistent wiper motor on an '85 Ram Charger

The ground wire for the wiper motor is actually the bolts that go into the firewall. As the bolts corrode, the ground is lost, causing intermittent "failure" of the wiper motor. Clean the corrosion from the bolts and the wiper motor, then run an additional ground wire from the motor to the frame...that should resolve the problem.

Visit the vehicle help board at have a sticky on the subject...or do a thread search to learn more.

Wipers and spray will not work, no fuse guide.

fuse #8 in the fuse box inside is the fuse for the wipers and washers....if it is good there is a couple other possibilities the multifunction switch or the intermittent wiper module
