Is the windshield wiper motor and window lift motor on same circuit?


Check your relays and chase the circuit back to the box

Monowiper works fine when in full wipe but when in intermittent wipe and park mode it stops 3 inches too high ??


It sounds like the wiper parking position relay has failed. You see, when you turn on the wiper a series of relays on the actuator side are energized and cause the wiper motor to turn on and move the mono-wiper through its arc.

When it reaches the maximum extent of its travel, the wiper circuitry then reverses the arms direction and it swings back. This goes on until you turn off the wipers by turning off the ignition key or turning off the power switch.

When you turn off the wipers, the parking circuitry is activated. The central feature of this part of the wiper circuitry is the parking position relay. As the wiper begins to de-energize the parking position relay is activated. The position relay ensures that the wiper returns gently to the same position each time you turn off the wipers.

If the parking position relay weren't there, the wipers would park wherever they stopped on the windshield. However, the relay circuitry charges when you hit the off button and ensures that the wiper arm sweeps down to the same spot each time. If it does not activate, the wiper arm stops as soon as you turn off the power, as noted. This means that the wiper might, one time, stop in the center of the windshield or it might stop all the way to the left of right.

Aside from its complete failure, manufacturers build in telltales that indicate when the circuit is about to go. One of them is the wiper blade's parked position. Normally, the position relay ensures that the de-energized wiper circuit settles gently to the bottom of the windshield, as noted. However, if the position relay is failing most manufacturers have it park some distance from the bottom of the windshield to give you a head's up that the relay is on its way out.

Since the wiper circuits are fairly involved, it is best to leave it to a trained professional to do the work. However, if you feel you have the expertise to do it, your first step is to obtain the serviced manual for your vehicle. The service manual will give you the step-by-step repair procedure.

Since all parts of the wiper circuitry are related be careful, if you are repairing it yourself, that you replace each component according to the instructions as you might damage something else inadvertently.

My 1991 oldsmobile cutlass cieras windshield wipers do not work properly. They will not wipe the windows, they only go up about 2 inches b4 going back down. They will keep doing that untill I stop them on...


if your wipers have the delay option, change the wiper motor control module, located just inside the plastic cover on the wiper motor (under hood below windshield).

The rear window to my van came off and shattered during a windstorm... i bought a window off of craigslist.. and can't install it. I dont need it to work,i just need it to go back on.. my bf is taking...


is it a fixed glass or a moveable glass.

Fixed glass is placed against a bead of urethane sealer, like caulking.

Window, Liftgate, Stationary Removal
ssw~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: SAFETY GLASSES AND GLOVES MUST BE WORN.
ssw~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Use only urethane for after-seal to service air and water leaks in urethane seal. Failure to do this may result in additional leaks.
ssw~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Allow all glass parts installed with urethane ample time to cure. If ample time is not allowed, glass may come loose and/or leak.
  1. Remove window wiper pivot arm (17526) .
  1. Remove all window glass stops.
  1. Using Rotunda Glass Adhesive Cutter 118-00050 or Rotunda Deluxe Glass Adhesive Cutter 163-00001 or equivalent, follow manufacturer's instructions and cut seal and dam around entire outer edge of windshield glass (03100) .
  1. Remove glass from vehicle.
  1. Trim urethane left on flange with a utility knife or razor blade until surface is smooth and free of cuts. It is not necessary to remove all urethane from the flange if it is cured. However, at no point should existing urethane material exceed 2.54mm (0.10 inch). NOTE: If urethane has not cured completely, remove all uncured urethane using care not to smear urethane on component parts.
    Check flange sealing area for damaged sheet metal or foreign objects which may have caused, or may cause, glass breakage. Service sheet metal if necessary.
Installation
  1. If existing urethane on metal flange has become contaminated, cut away contaminated urethane with a utility knife or razor blade.
  1. If painted sheet metal has been exposed anywhere along the flange, apply Urethane Metal Primer WSB-M2G234-C or equivalent over the painted surface using a clean brush. NOTE: A minimum of 30 minutes is required for primer surface to dry.
  1. Place the windshield glass on a low, stable work surface, inside up. NOTE: Wipe off immediately after application because it flash-dries.
  1. Using a lint-free cloth, wipe outer 25mm (1 inch) of inside glass periphery with Urethane Glass Wipe WSB-M5B280-C2 or equivalent.
  1. Position mouldings on glass. ssw~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Allow all glass parts installed with urethane ample time to cure. If ample time is not allowed, glass may come loose and/or leak.
  1. Thoroughly shake and stir Urethane Glass Primer WSB-M2G314-B or equivalent to ensure uniform pigment mixing.
  1. Using a clean brush, apply primer around entire periphery of glass on inside surface as shown. (Allow at least five minutes drying time.)
  1. Properly align glass to body.
    1. Make sure lower windshield glass stops are in place at bottom of windshield glass opening.
    1. Place windshield glass into opening. Center it top and bottom, side to side, with about equal clearance around opening.
    1. Using masking tape or crayon, make alignment marks at points on both the windshield glass and the window opening.
  1. Remove windshield glass from vehicle and place back on work table.
  1. Apply an even bead of Urethane Adhesive WSB-M2G316-B on top of existing urethane around entire window opening using an air pressure cartridge gun. Air line pressure should be around 276 kPa (40 psi). The bead should be large enough to seal the windshield glass but not cause expulsion into vehicle.
  1. Install windshield glass onto vehicle, taking care to align marks on glass to those on body. This must be done within 10 minutes of applying urethane.

Wipers won't stop wiping.


Sounds like your intermittent wiper circuit is defective. Normally the intermittent feature is engaged by one of the functions on the multi-function switch (usually on the steering column). The circuit of the intermittent wiper periodically activates a relay that closes across the "Wiper On" switch. Your intermittent wiper circuit is likely defective and holding its relay closed (or the relay is stuck closed), thereby keeping the wipers on. Note: The wiper motor has an internal switch that opens when the wipers are in the park position and that is designerd to stop the wipers in the park position. When you turn on the wipers (or the intermittent relay is closed), the motor's internal switch is shunted such that the wiper does not stop at the park point of the cycle.

Sounds like the wiper control relay is going bad. I think it is mounted in the fuse box under the hood or just behind it.
