Question about 2005 Audi A4

1 Answer

Front wipers stopped working

2005 Audi Avant: Windshield wipers started to work intermittently. Then stopped all together half way up the windshield. Occasionally they will move the slightest little bit one way or the other. The back wind blade works perfectly which I think eliminates the fuse(?)

Try to run a ground test on the motor, If it gets power, then you neeed to replace the switch.. if it doesnt run with the ground test, then you need a wiper motor.

2005 ford escape wiper and washer has no power. cant hear it engage when on but was working a week ago. how can i troubleshoot it and find the fuse


Hi Justin , Do you know what a SJB - smart junction box is and where it is located on you escape ?
Windshield Wiper Operation
The smart junction box (SJB) supplies power to the multifunction switch from the SJB fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position. The multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor for the HIGH or LOW/INTERMITTENT input, depending on the multifunction switch position selected. The SJB also supplies power directly to the windshield wiper motor from fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position for RUN/PARK operation. When the multifunction switch is in the LOW, HIGH, or INTERMITTENT position, power is supplied to the windshield wiper motor, which moves the wipers off the park position. Once the wipers are off the park position, an internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches to the run/park position which directs power to the wiper switch then back to the wiper motor. This maintains power to the windshield wiper motor to complete the wipe cycle. When the cycle is complete, the internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches back to the park position. If the multifunction switch is in the LOW or HIGH position, power is supplied from the multifunction switch and another wipe cycle starts. If the multifunction switch is in the INTERMITTENT position, the windshield wipers remain parked until the internal relay in the multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor. The internal relay supplies power after a time delay that is determined by the 1 of 9 intermittent switch settings.

Wipers don't work on intermittent. They run but stop in they middle of the windshield and don't go to the bottom like normal, Then they run again and stop some other spot. When put on continuous they...


Intermittent Speed Windshield Wipers
The intermittent wiper speed is activated with grounds controlled by the multifunction switch inputs to the windshield wiper motor module. The windshield wiper motor module then activates the windshield wiper RUN/PARK relay coil and switches voltage through the windshield wiper high/low relay. The high/low relay remains deactivated supplying the voltage to the wiper motor low speed input and activates the windshield wiper motor. When the windshield wiper motor module receives the grounded input, the motor continues to operate until Hall effect senses magnet to turn off RUN/PARK sense the output to the windshield wiper RUN/PARK software, deactivating the relay and disconnecting voltage to the wiper motor. The windshield wipers remain parked until the windshield wiper motor module completes a time-out and then repeats the intermittent windshield wiper cycle.

  • The intermittent windshield wiper speed does not operate correctly
  • Multifunction switch.
  • Circuitry.
  • Windshield wiper motor.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test D .

Pinpoint Test D: The Intermittent Windshield Wiper Speed Does Not Operate Correctly
Normal Operation During normal operation, the windshield wiper motor receives voltage at all times through battery junction box (BJB) fuse 1 (30A), circuit 65 (DG). The windshield wiper motor also receives power with the ignition switch in RUN or ACC positions through central junction box (CJB) fuse 33 (15A), circuit 1002 (BK/PK). Ground is provided to the windshield wiper motor through circuit 676 (PK/OG) and circuit 57 (BK). The run/park and high/low relays are contained in the wiper motor electronics. Mode of operation is dependant on the signal(s) received from the multifunction switch.
    Possible Causes
  • Multifunction switch
  • Open in circuit 57 (BK), 56 (DB/OG), 61 (YE/RD) or 63 (RD)
  • Windshield wiper motor
PINPOINT TEST D: THE INTERMITTENT WINDSHIELD WIPER SPEED DOES NOT OPERATE CORRECTLY Test Step Result / Action to Take D1 CHECK THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH
  • Key in OFF position.
  • Disconnect: Multifunction Switch C202b.
  • Carry out the multifunction switch component test. Refer to Wiring Diagrams Cell 149 for schematic and connector information.
  • Did the multifunction switch pass the component test?
Yes
GO to D2 .

No
INSTALL a new multifunction switch. REFER to Section 211-05 . TEST the system for normal operation. D2 CHECK CIRCUIT 57 (BK) FOR OPEN
  • Measure the resistance between multifunction switch C202b-6, circuit 57 (BK), harness side and ground.
  • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms?
Yes
GO to D3 .

No
REPAIR the circuit. TEST the system for normal operation. D3 CHECK CIRCUITS 56 (DB/OG), 61 (YE/RD) AND 63 (RD) FOR OPENS
  • Disconnect: Windshield Wiper Motor C125.
  • Using the following table, measure the resistance between multifunction switch C202b harness side and windshield wiper motor C125 harness side:

    Multifunction Switch C202b Windshield Wiper Motor C125 Pin 2, circuit 56 (DB/OG) Pin 10, circuit 56 (DB/OG) Pin 4, circuit 61 (YE/RD) Pin 1, circuit 61 (YE/RD) Pin 1, circuit 63 (RD) Pin 9, circuit 63 (RD) Pin 3, circuit 58 (WH) Pin 11, circuit 58 (WH)
  • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms?
Yes
GO to D4 .

No
REPAIR the circuit(s) in question. TEST the system for normal operation. D4 CHECK FOR CORRECT WIPER MOTOR OPERATION
  • Disconnect all wiper motor connectors.
  • Check for:
    • corrosion.
    • pushed-out pins.
  • Connect all wiper motor connectors and make sure they seat correctly.
  • Operate the system and verify the concern is still present.
  • Is the concern still present?
Yes
GO to D5 .

No
The system is operating correctly at this time. Concern may have been caused by a loose or corroded connector. TEST the system for normal operation. D5 CHECK THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR
  • Key in OFF position.
  • Disconnect: Windshield Wiper Motor C125.
  • Carry out the windshield wiper motor component test as outlined in this section.
  • Did the windshield wiper motor pass the component test?
Yes
The system is operating correctly at this time. Concern may have been caused by incorrect binding pivot arm adjustment. REFER to Wiper Blade and Pivot Arm Adjustment in this section. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
INSTALL a new windshield wiper motor. REFER to Windshield Wiper Motor in this section.

2001 Audi A4 Windshield Wiper Issues....Work on their own


The most likely cause of your symptoms is the wiper motor parking relay has become faulty, however there is a slim possibility the connections within your wiper switch could be an issue, but the relay would be my first and cheepest line of enquiry. Contact your local VAG dealer and expect to pay somewhere in the region of £15. Good luck

Front windshield wipers stall or work very intermittantly when on


It is likely that where the wiper arm is attached to the linkage  it is either loose or stripped.
