Question about Cars & Trucks
Guessing sucks, no? very expensive..!!! what year CAR?
ever heard of a $20 DMM that all have a voltmeter?
yes, use a volt meter.
if you had , you would have found that there was no
power to the motor, when activated.
the motors on all wipers are self sustaning of zero point.
that means that it self powers up inside with its one power switch.
so some need power on 2 pins, RTM read the FSM its there .
ever wonder why wipers keep going when turn off, that is it returns for FREE. bingo on self power I(no this is not free energy , lol)
there are only 2 pissible.
1: no power.
2:its jammed, same is true for all Elect motors, be it wiper , windows, fans, sure anything.
rear windows are pretty much not jammable but ive
never look inside the rear rear door of the not stated year, Subaru.
but if you look and see arms in there, bingo. they are jammed
one way to do this , done many a time.
is to release just the motor arm and then cycle the mechanism
by hand, oops , jammed.
no power, or jammed.

I would try replacing the wiper arm itself and also make sure that there is no binds in the motor or rubbing anything inside the door

Look for the fuse for the rear wiper motor is a 15 amp mini-fuse , in location # 8 of your POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX in the engine compartment. Check in the PD BOX for; - relay # 8 is the rear wiper down relay , and - relay # 10 is the rear wiper up relay .

SOURCE: Rear wiper motor not working
most likely the wiper motor is bad the second wire sould be a ground if you set meter to ohms you sould be able to get a low resistance to any good ground on the vehicle if the hot wire is hot any time key is on the bcm is controling the ground to operate moter and you should have a steady continuity on the ground side with switch on the fast postion an it will read on and off in the intermitant postion if both wires test good motor is bad when you replace motor let it cycle and shut it off before installing the arm on it
