Question about 2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II

Land Rover Disco II - Windshield Wiper loss

How do you check the fuse to tell if it is good or not. (The block type) My wipers were struggling for a long time, and I would have to go to the fastest speed just to get them to turn on; only then could I choose speed. Now they went out entirely and I can't get any spray or wiper action. Also, where is the best place to get an affordable manual ordered from? I'm in Oahu, HI, and don't have much option for repair, or help.

    I didn't have access to a multi-meter to test the fuse, so I just purchased one but it was not the problem. After disassembling the wipers, and checking the motor and wiring, I'm convinced it's the switch (stick). I've ordered one, but now have to decide wether to try and replace it myself or leave that task to the mechanic.
    Is it really difficult to open the steering wheel to replace the switch?

A lot of problems with slow wiper action can be traced to seizing of the pivot bushes at the base of the arms They are subject to water and loose the lubricating qualities if the phosphor bronze material. Try lifting the rubber boot an getting some wd40 /crc penetrant down while moving the arms. To test a fuse use a multi meter and check for continuity between the pins of the fuse . No continuity = blown fuse. Normally the washer motor is on a separate fuse as it requires a lot less current to work

SOURCE: 1997 Land Rover Discovery II windshield wiper stop working

It sounds lilke the wipers are just going through the "park routine": one swipe and stop.

The melted part is the end of a wiring harness. But replacing this will not solve the problem. It sounds like you have a bad wiper motor which is pulling too much current and overheating.

There are switches on the wiper motor which probably have burned out and the only one left working is the park switch.

Discovery II. Wiper blades get stuck and dont retract


You meant the wiper do not park? That is a problem with the motor assembly, which is responsible for parking the wipers. The switch just turns it on, and off.

Disco 2 windsreen washers not working


check to see if your wipers work, if so then it's not a switch. Does the rear spray and wiper work also. It could be a bad washer pump located in the washer bottle, or a clogged line to your front wipers.
