Sounds like the wiper motor shorted out, and you need a new one. Or the fuse blew.

Passenger Side Windshield Wiper Broken


Hi Jill,
The first thing to check is a 13mm nut that holds the wiper arm in place.See if you can move the wiper arm freely back and forth.There is a nut at the base of that wiper arm,Lift up a cover that is hiding the nut. If it comes loose from being froze from ice or snow. Put the wiper in its rest position and tighten the nut back up.

Wiper blades were froze to the windshield and now wipers won't work.I can hear the motor running but I think the wiper linkage had been damaged


you dont EVER run the wipers when frozen to the glass..the windshield needs thawed out first..you may have stripped the gears in the unit..replacement is required..always thaw the ice first..and not with the defrost as the extreme heat will crack the glass.. use the normal vents as a first heat source..this takes time so do it earlier..

Windshield wipers wont work. My daughters wipers got iced to the windshield she tried to turn them on and only one moved. She noticed this turned them off, loosened the one that was stuck and now they...


hi by the sound of this you may have two problems firstly when the wipers froze to the screen and got switched on the linkage that links the wipers has probaly come off if your lucky you can probably pop it back on the other problem is that the fuse for the wipers has done its job and blown when they were stuck to the screen so needs to be replaced if you look in your handbook it should tell you the location of the fusbox and the type of fuse required

My Volvo's windshield wipers just ''froze in place'' and do move. Is this an electrical problem? (My car's headlights/brake lights do work.) Thank you.


You could try just tightening the nuts that hold your wipers. I'm no expert but I know the wipers on volvos are made to loosen them selves up if they get stuck on anything (like ice) so they wont break something more expensive.

Windshield wiper on car iced up during snow/driving could not see


You can usually avoid that by using a good quality winter mix washer fluid that resists freezing, making sure the wipers are cleared of ice before beginning the drive and using the defroster to keep the windshield warm. In extreme conditions you just need to pull over and manually clean the ice off by hand.(only do that where it's safe). There are also specially designed wiper blades that will also help a bit.

My windshield wipers wont move but i can still hear the motor


You broke the wiper transmission. Most of the time they are dealer only parts.

Whindshield wipers stuck in a vertical position


This is an easy fix. Likely ice got on your windshield and froze your wipers to the glass then when turned on moved out of position. Take the cover off the base of the wipers and loosen the bolts. Put them down all the way and tighten. When wipers are turned on when frozen to glass the gears want to move but cant and loosens at the base. Please let me know if this does not help and will look into it further but this is probably it. Thanks
