Windshield wipers stopped working

For a few months now they may or may not come on...but came on when I tapped the top of the steering column a couple times. That stopped working so I put a new multifunction switch in...nothing still.

Check the wiper arm motor under the hood. Sometimes its the fuse, Check the circuit breaker for continuity across the terminals If an open circuit is indicated replace the circuit breaker. Also check between the circuit motor and the ground, and check the battery voltage with ignition on (don't start) if it test for voltage good and the motor still don't work its a faulty wiper motor. A used wiper motor will work as well as a new $$$$$$ one.Denton auto salvage 785-437-2223 test all their parts for working condition before shipping and have a 30 day return on them

You need to pull your steering wheel and get access to the small plastic tube with tabs on it. they sometimes come loose from the holder in the steering wheel fram. It's held in place by one tiny pin that you push in and turn one quarter turn to the right. If you find that his pin has broken off, a drop of superglue and a pair of needle nose pliers will do the permanent fix. Have a couple beers first because you only have a matter of seconds to get this spring and tube back in place. Can't have any shaking going on. Good luck, Dana

1986 volkswagen windshield wipers will not turn off?

look for signs of a windshield leaking water into fuse/relay box- located near pedals under dash. Also remove small plastic trim below steering wheel ( 2 screws) and unplug black connector with 6 or 8 wires directly under steering column. Turn key on if wipers are stopped then your switch is bad- steering wheel must be removed to change switch.

Windshield wipers stopped working, washers stopped also.fuse is good. 260,000 kms

Check the multipin connector block on the part of the wiring harness that runs from the wiper control switch along the sterring column and under dash for a loose connection. You may have to remove the plastic covers from around steerring column to do this. Also check earth connection located near the fuse block for a poor connection.

2001 Trans Am WS6 My windshield wipers only work on high and stop in the middle of the windshield or whayever point I turn the switch off. I just replaced the control lever (turn signal stalk) and that...

After turn on windshield wipers, they will not

There is two place that you can check which would cause this problem. (1) the switch it self and the other is the (2) circuit board on the wiper motor. It's common for the solder on the circuit board where the wire harness clips on the wiper motor to crack and needs to be re soldered. You can buy the replacement at Auto Zone or you can re solder it your self to safe you the $15.00 for the board. If you give it a light tap and the wipers stop, then it's the circuit board. If it keeps working, then it's the switch on the steering column and you can get that at Auto Zone also and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the hob done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted.

When I start my 2003 buick lesabre the windshield wipers come on by themselves and continue intermittenantly until they stop.

Behind your ignition inside the steering column, there is a plastic piece that screws to the back that has to do with your accessories. its bad or your wiper control stick also located on the steering column is bad.

Windshield wipers don't work

Ok, this is a steering column issue. The wiring needs to be replaced. Shouldn't cost much at all. also, the external switch may have issues as well but, i suggest you re wire your steering column to fix this problem.

Windshield wipers

The fuse panel is under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. Lift the handle to unlatch the panel and pull it down. The windshield wiper/washer system uses a circuit breaker in position #2 in the fuse panel. If your washer is working the circuit breaker is OK.
