Having windshield wiper/washer problems? Here are some more common problems.

  • Motor:
The wiper motor is commonly replaced and was often not the problem. Don't replace the motor yet. maybe it's not the motor. It could be a fuse or something at the wiper switch. The wiper motor has two windings, fast and slow. The wiper switch sends a ground signal to each motor winding. More often, there are problems with the relay, or at the wiper switch, or in the cable to the motor.
  • Windshield Washer:
Don't be too quick to replace the washer pump. The problem is often just a clog in the sprayer heads. You can clean out the sprayer holes with a needle, some have two holes, so look closely. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Blower on the heater/AC not working on 1998 Escort, checked fuse under dash?

Ok, first off, check the fuses under the dash. If they're all good, does the blower work only on high speed? If yes, then you have a bad blower motor resistor, which is located under the hood, near the blower motor itself. If the motor doesnt work at all at any fan speed, make sure the wiring harness that plugs into the motor under the hood is clean and tightly installed. If it still doesnt operate, sometimes tapping on the blower motor housing will kick it on, but if that doesnt work, you may have to replace the blower motor. They are available aftermarket, and arent usually too expensive.

I have a 1998 Ford Escort SE .Where do you find the blower motor fuse and replace it?


It is probably not the fuse it is more than likely the connector. Located where the front passenger sits above their feet. Look for the blue wire

Turn signal switch sounds defective or it may simply be the wiper relay is stuck. Locate and pull the relay.

As soon as you put a fuse in wiper circuit it blows is there a module that runs these to or is it just switch and motor


Fuses are intended to protect the wiring in a circuit. If it blows there is an overload or a short circuit. It could be a faulty wiper motor, a faulty switch or a worn through wire that is grounded. try disconnecting the motor first to see if the fuse still blows. Next inspect the wiring harness as I feel a switch is an unlikely cause. Check around the fuse box as well as sometimes fuses over heat and terminals touch.

Wipers do not work, blows every new fuse, replaced wiper motor, with the same result, what else could I try? Could it be a switch problem?


Wiper not work
Sounds like a live wire short. Check all cabling from fuse, motor and switch.look for open or damaged cable insulation.
Remove wire harnass from switch and motor and see if fuse still blows, then definite short. if not connect switch only and see if fuse is still intact if so connect wiper motor

Windshield wipers won't work. Ford 2002 ZX2


The actual assembly arm that you turn on your windshield wiper (that says all of the controls on it) was bad and was causing the fuses to blow and burning up the motor. It was replaced and it works now as well as the a/c and heat which was not working before this fix.
