Wipers stop mid windshield in off position

After this past weeks snowstorm and cleaning the ice off my windshield, my wipers stop midway in the off position. This happened several yaers ago after a simalar situation, but corrected it's self after a few days. However, that is not the case this time. Sooo. I keep the wipers set at a very slow intermittent for now...LOL.I have had the whole "Wiper, light, turn signal Unit" replaced since the last similar incident.

The exact same thing happened to me last winter. There's a metal plate in the wiper assembly that you may have bent when clearing ice from the windshield. (I didn't think I was that strong, or that rough on my wiper are, but my dealer said it was very common in 2002 models.)

2001 Subaru Outback- my wipers stopped working in the middle of a snowstorm.


You will need to inspect the wiper transmission (this is the part the electric motor turns that swipes the wipers across the window) under the cowl in front of the windshield, it has most likely broken or come loose from link rod or the motor shaft connection came loose.

2001 toyota camry, wipers do not return to itsrest position, they go to center of windshield.


Did you change the motor before or after the storm?
The limit switch is inside the motor, it could be the switch or some plastic gear, hard to tell. If you can take it apart and probably you will see the problem.
Good Luck

Wipers stop in middle of windshield when turned off - Century 2002 tried nothing thus far


The control board on the wiper motor has ametal "stop" that got bent.

This can be readjusted bu bending back to original position or replacing the control board

The wipers keep icing up while driving. We had to stop several times to clean the ice off the wipers.


The only thing that might help some with that is to keep your defrost vents on high to keep the windshield warm. There is not much else you can do to stop the wipers from freezing up in inclement winter weather.

Windshield wiper on driver's side of Hyuandi doesn't work -


I recently had the same problem of the drivers side wiper not working. My boyfriend (a mechanic) took the windshield cowl off and looked to see what was going on. He originally thought that maybe something had slipped off. I'm going to describe what he found in layman's terms. When you take off the wiper blade arms from the wiper transmission assembly unit there are these silver colored nubs with grooves on them (one for each wiper). What he found was that on mine the grooves were stripped so that the wiper on the drivers side wouldn't catch and go across the windshield while the other wiper worked fine. What we think that happened is that I left the wipers on when I shut off the car and since we had a huge snowstorm the wiper transmission bound up and stripped the nubs when I turned on the vehicle the next day and let it warm up. I had tried for the past week to find a used replacement wiper transmissions assembly but was not successful. I just ordered the part from my local Hyundai dealer at a cost of $180. I will at least save on the labor, as my boyfriend can handle that part. If you try to get the part used, be careful. There was a product change mid-year. Prior to June 2004 (If I remember correctly) is one part number and Santa Fe's manufactured after that date is a different part. I needed the earlier Santa Fe part. You can look at the body panel between the front and back doors on the driver's side for the production date of your vehicle there is a metal decal with the vin, your color codes, and other information.
