Question about 1983 Mercury Grand Marquis

Wipers will not turn off

When I start my gramma's car, the wipers come on and will not turn off? Worst case, does anyone know where the fuse box is so I can pull the fuse to get it to the shop? Thank you.

    it's in the owner manual.

    The fuse panel should be on the lower driver side of instrument panel.

Wipers are stuck on the drivers side. When I turn them on they try to move slightly but can't, and won't force down. I'm reading a lot about the motor and fuse box. Any suggestions on where to start?


Doubtful a motor/fuse issue if the wipers try to work. Suspect a seized wiper pivot causing the linkage not to operate. The pivot is what the wiper arm/s attach to. To verify, you need to disconnect the wiper transmission asssembly from the wiper motor and try to manualy move the linkage by hand. In some cases the pivots can be lubricated making them free up and turn again. In most cases the entire linkage will need to be replaced

EF Ford Fairmont 1996, accessories stop when ignition switched to start


Eg wipers work while ignition switched to 'accessories' but stop when key turned to 'start'

I had this issue and took me ages and ages of wire tracing and probing. Your fuse box should have the wiper/windows accessories fuses. If you probe them and they aren't showing voltage, check wiring harness, check wiper motor voltage. My ignition barrel was the fault of all this, everything worked when switched to "accessories", but while the engine was running, the accessories turned off. The bottom of the ignition barrel pushed out, as the factory stopper groove bent out. All I did was cold chisel a dent back into the case. BAM fixed my windows/starting/wipers all in one go.

Yes my fuse for my wipers keeps blowing and my wipers turn on when i plug fuse in even know the wipers are turned off.


The power distribution box in the engine compartment # 6 , 30 amp mini - fuse , front wiper motor , front wiper relay , front washer pump , FEM ( also # 7 , 25 amp mini - fuse , rear wiper etc. ) The owners manual shows to disconnect your battery cables before servicing anything in the PD BOX

your relay could be shorted which makes the fuse keep blowing

While driving it started to rain hard and I turned on the wipers . They worked for a few minutes but then stopped in the up position. I was able to navigate into a parking lot, but could not get the...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Your wiper fuse may have blown causing the wipers to stop immediately. Check your fuse box for the exact location of the wiper fuse. If the fuse is good, you will need to see if your wiper motor is working. If it is not, the motor is bad. Since your car is just an 08 model, it may just be the fuse. If you have any questions, let me know. Check these solutions first. If neither don't work, let me know.

Windshield wipers quite. What is the location in the fuse box for the wiper motor?


it should be marked for wiper motor if not in the car manual in drivers glove box they work by numbers if you cant find the fuse use a test light worst to worst with no test light take out one at a time but it should be a 20 amp or more fuse and if they are all good test the power at the motor

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee wipers not working


the relay is dirt cheap at the store (8-12 dollars), the relay is easy to find. on top of the engine area back near the firewall is a small to medium sized black box with a snap up lid...there are relays just sitting inside of it, you want the one with 3 prongs going across the bottom and 2 prongs going front to back on the bottom. it's a big square piece that just pulls out. the wiper fuse is kinda a pain to get to busy easy to replace... it's a really big silver metal cased fuse on your fusebox closest to the floor... be careful because if the wiper fuse is bad, it may be hot as hell to touch so take care when grabbing it. any auto store will have one. if neither of these fixes work then you need to check the motor wheel that connects to the wiper arm rods under the vents where the washer lines run down from the arms... sometimes the pins that connect the arms to the wheel snap off which make the wipers stop. worst case is the motor itself went bad. hope this helps

Wipers wont work


1.  Turn on your wipers and pop your hood.   2.  If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses. 3.  If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken.   4.  If the problem is electrical, do the following:      1.  Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse.      2.  Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground               coming out.  Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections.       3.  Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the                       following order:           Fuse box           wiper switch           wiper motor      4.  In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault.  I do not recommend replacing                 anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing           coming out.)
