SOURCE: Windshield wiper motor comes on

At the base of the wiper arm there will be a plastic cover. Pull up on it an you will see a nut that holds the wiper arm to the post. Remove the nut and push down/up on the wiper arm to release it from the post. Once both wiper arms are removed you can remove the push pins that hold the cowl in place and remove the cowl. You will then have access to the wiper motor and linkages.

SOURCE: windshield wipers don't move, but hear motor running

check the nuts on the wiper arms and make sure they are tight. If the nuts are tight then a linkage on the wiper transmission probably came loose or broke. You'll have to pull some cowling off to access it.

The wipes want move up or down but I hear the motor and the fuse is good


If the motor can be heard running, either the wiper transmission linkage has seperated at/near the wiper motor or one of the two wiper pivots has seized not allowing the linkage to operate properly. If you can move one or more wiper arms by hand with the motor in the "off" position, it will most likely be a linkage seperation. WIth the wiper motor in the "on" position, if you can make the wiper arms move together, most likely a seized pivot

Wipers stopped working, not a fuse


Your wiper motor or wiper transmission may be bad. If you can hear the wiper motor running, but the wipers don't move, your wiper transmission is bad. If you can't hear the wiioper motor, and you're sure all fuses are good and all contacts are solid, your wiper motor is toast.

I have a 1996 honda accord and my wipers will not work how do i know if its the wiper motor or not?


To check the fuse is always a good start. But also ,with the engine not running and the Key in the on position, turn the wipers on and listen for the wiper moter. You may hear the wiper motor running but the wipers not working ,they could have come disconnected at the motor or in the linkage. Physically move the wipers, if they move freely with no resistants, that would indicate a disconnection in the linkage or at the motor, in my opinion.

Wipers will not work. Fuse is good, sounds like motor is running but wipers will not move, What's the problem?


The transmission linkage has come off,you will have to remove the wiper motor and the panel under the wiper arms,along with the wiper arms to access the problem.

My wiper blades are not moving


If indeed you can hear the wiper motor running but the wipers are not moving, there is a nut under the pivot point cap that has to be tightened. If you don't hear the motor running than you'll have to check the power to the wiper motor and the fuses. Good luck. Dana

My front wipers do not work, the washer on the front and the rear wiper works fine, they are all on the same thing


HI. This is a possible motor issue. To confirm, use this procedure. it will help isolate the actual issue at hand.

1.Make sure the battery has a strong charge and is in good condition. Use a voltmeter to get a reading if necessary.

2.Connect a jumper wire between ground and the wiper motor. Turn the key on but don’t start the engine. Turn the wiper switch on. If the motor works, check for a corroded or loose ground connection.

3.Turn on the car key but don’t start the engine. Turn on the wipers. Check for voltage at the wiper motor with your voltmeter. If you get a good voltage reading, turn the key off and disconnect the motor from the wiper linkage.

4.Move the wiper arms by hand. If they are stuck, you have found the problem. If the wiper arms move freely by hand, go to step 5. If voltage is not reaching the motor go to step 6.

5.Remove the wiper motor by disconnecting the plug and removing the bolts using a wrench or ratchet. Use a pair of jumper wires to connect the wiper motor directly to the battery. If the motor does not work, replace it.

6.Turn on the key but don’t start the engine. Get a voltage reading across the wiper switch. If there is voltage, use a jumper wire to bypass the switch, if the motor works now, replace the switch, otherwise go to step 7. If there is no voltage at the switch, go to step 8.

7.Check for continuity at the wire between the switch and the motor. The wire could be loose or disconnected.


8.Check the wire coming from the fuse panel to the wiper switch. It could be disconnected or loose.

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......
