Check for power at motor connector when switch on. If power there, it's probably the motor. Check fuses first.

Why is my windshield wipers running in the off position, it's like they are running in the intermittent position, but it's in the off position.


When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

Rear windshield wiper and wiper fluid stopped working


sounds like a wire ws loose and finally fell off, check to see that it is plugged in at the motor. there is a fuse, manual will tell you which one and if no manual it may list it on the fuse cover. if the motor is bad it would still squirt fluid so as both are not working it probably isn't the wiper motor.

My 2006 Dodge Dakota windshield washer fluid does not spray. I checked the washer pump and it works. The fuses are all good. And the wipers work. When I press the windshield washer button inside the truck...


If the pump works, something should be flowing thru the hose to the spray nozzles.
And if the pump works, everything electrical is working.
How do you know the pump works ?

Windshield wipers won't work after removing battery to get to the windshield wiper pump that squirts fluid to clean windshield


Sometimes disconnecting the battery does more damage then you want it might have trip a fuse or relay check those if thats not it, maybe wiper motor or transmission went out.

I have a 20063 Kia Sportage that was recently serviced. Since I got it back I also moved out of state and noticed that when I tried to spray my windshield wiper fluid I could hear the motor but nothing...


You are on the problem from what I read. The fluid goes from the tank, through the motor you hear, and out through small tubing to the "nozzles" that spray your windshield. I'm sure one end fell off, but you will have to search it down. Follow the hose if you can, as you may have to move some covers or parts, but look close and you may see the problem.

Windshield wiper fluid does not squirt out


go to a service station with an air compressor and with the air turned down to about 20 lbs blow into the washer top small hole to force fluid thru the hoses,not a lot of pressure so you blow hoses off or rupture something

My windshield wipers stopped working, but i can hear something come on when i cut them on, but they dont move... i dont even know how to get to the wiper motor to even check it out! car is extra...


I am not sure on this specific vehicle but the wiper motor on all cars connects to linkage to convert the motor energy to the wipers. Most likely what happened if you here the motor moving is the linkage came loose from the motor. This is usually an easy fix once you find the motor it is usually on the drivers side fire wall up high under the hood.

My windshield wipers work but I cant squirt windshield cleaner


it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.
