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

Rear window wiper doen sot work


I've done a few of these.The shaft that the wiper arm bolts to gets corroded inside, causing the motor to work slowly then quit.Have an assistant turn the key on and move the switch from on to off while you listen at the tail gate for a faint clicking..this tells you the wires and switch are likely OK. If you bring it to a shop have them double check power & ground before they replace the motor, just to be sure.A used motor may have the same issue...get new or remanufactured

these are totally separate circuits and therefore 2 different issues and unrelated, most likely u will need a window lift motor to fix the rear window issue, as far as the rear wiper goes a common issue is the wiring breaking from years of opening and closing the lift gate, the rear wiper most likely isn't getting any power as a result of this wiring damage.

Rear wiper does not work at all. front wipers work fine. rear washer works


1. check the fuse to the rear wiper motor
2. check for power to rear wiper motor at the motor (power wire going in to the wiper motor with rear wiper switch on)
If you have good fuses & have power going in to the rear wiper motor...
3. Pull old rear wiper motor and install a new rear wiper motor.
Thank you please drive thru......

Rear wiper stopped working


my 2004 expedition had same problem, if you take apart the shaft that goes thru the glass it will be full of dirt, clean ,lubricate and reinstall, you may have to replace the O-ring on the shaft. a 20 minute job, very easy fix

92 Subaru Legacy Power Windows Don't Work


I have a 92 that did the same. After checking fuses and the relay(located under drivers seat) I discovered that the power windows control module on drivers door was bad. Went to a salvage and bought a used for $40, pulled the door panel, unscrewed and unplugged the old one, put in the used one and everything worked fine. About a week later, the passenger side motor went out and replaced that with a used power window motor. All windows now work fine.

Rear wiper


It is the power window relay for feeding power to all the windows except the drivers. If the drivers works the other three don't it is time to replace the power window relay.

Another quick test is to see at each window if the switch works then try it at the driver master switches for each window. If you notice a difference then it is either the power window relay or the master switch.

You can post further feedback based on what you find so I can pinpoint exactly. If all windows are not working then it is the 30a power fuse
