1) listen if windshield wiper motor is turning when switched on. The motor is under hood up near firewall.
If no noise and fuses are OK, motor may need replacement.

2) If motor can be heard whirring, then maybe the plastic link between the motor shaft and the wiper arm assy has worn or broken. (A very cheap part). This can be accessed by removing cowling or vents in front of windshield. This is a common failure.

2003 Impala wipers don't work have power and new motor but nothing moving when on


Depending on what your trying to do with wipers, I'd want to see voltage on the gray and or purple wire. See the black wire at the bottom that is ground, a good ground is a must. Hey Jeff, I'm not trying to bug you. If I spend time trying to look up info, I'm going to post it. I don't care if the question has already been answered. Have a good day.

Why is my windshield wipers running in the off position, it's like they are running in the intermittent position, but it's in the off position.


When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

2007 Pontiac g6 wipers stay in upright position


Hey Derek , here is how the wipers park position is suppose to work !
Windshield wiper motor park operation is controlled by the body control module (BCM) using an input from the park switch within the wiper motor assembly. The BCM monitors the windshield wiper motor park switch circuit to determine if the windshield wiper blades are at the bottom of the glass. The circuit will be pulled to ground by the wiper motor park switch while the windshield wiper motor is operating. When the wiper switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the BCM will continue to operate the motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned OFF while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The BCM will park the wipers the next time the ignition is turned ON.
The wipers will not park when they are commanded ON and OFF with a scan tool. The BCM will park the wipers the next time the wiper switch is turned ON and OFF.
The BCM provides stall protection for the wiper motor by monitoring the park switch. If the park switch does not transition for 3 seconds while the wipers are operating, the BCM will assume that the wiper motor is stalled, and will de-energize the wiper relay until the wiper switch is cycled OFF and ON again.
Check for a voltage signal on the yellow wire at the wiper motor assembly , this is signal to the BCM ! If there is no signal you need to replace the windshield wiper motor assembly ? If there is a signal need to have Tech 2 scan tool hooked up to see if The BCM is the problem ! Relay #39 an #40 are the high an low wiper relays in the under hood fuse block ! Do you have a volt meter ,do you know how to do electrical testing ?

Front wipers stop working


I know of no recall. This is not acoomon problem. I would think that maybe the Body Control Module is defective it controls the wiper motor.

Front windshiled wipers not working.


blown fuse, faulty wiper motor or faulty wiper switch. Possible you got a bad new wiper motor if you replaced everything in the order you wrote it in.

Windshield washer will not work. Replaced pump motor, but checked and original operates when directly wired to battery, so not pump motor. Next guess is switch in the control stem. How to fix?


You are on the right track. Whenever you can hook something directly to the battery and it works but doesn't work when connected to the wiring harness it tells you a few things such as: Short in wires, relay or switch bad, fuse bad.

If I were you I would first test the wiper switch because more times than not it is the culprit:

1. Remove three screws at the bottom of the steering column cover.

2. Turn the steering wheel to the left and remove the two screws that attach the wiper switch to the column.

3. Pull the wiper switch outward and disconnect the harness.

4. At this point you can do one of two things: Take apart the switch and find the contacts for the washer switch. They may be fused to a brass bar. If so separate the brass bar from the contact. You may be able to manipulate the little brass bar to work a little better but it is probably cracked and worn out.

The part number for the switch is:

Honda SWITCH ASSY., WIPER

Part# 35256-S84-A01

Hope this helps,
