Wipers dont work


This is a complex wiper system . Here are all the components involved !
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
?€¢
Windshield wiper/washer switch


?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
Wiper 1 relay


?€¢
Wiper 2 relay


?€¢
Wiper diode


?€¢
Windshield wiper motor


?€¢
Windshield washer pump


?€¢
Windshield washer nozzles


?€¢
Windshield washer solvent container


?€¢
Windshield wiper arm and blade assemblies


?€¢
Windshield wiper transmission


?€¢
WIPER/SW 10A fuse


?€¢
WIPER 25A fuse


Circuit/System Description
The body control module (BCM) controls the wiper motor based on input from the windshield wiper washer switch. The BCM monitors the wiper washer switch through three separate signal circuits and a ground circuit. The windshield wiper switch high signal circuit is used to determine high speed wiper operation, the windshield wiper switch low signal is used to determine low speed, intermittent, and mist operation through the use of a resistor ladder, and windshield washer switch signal circuit is used to determine washer operation. The windshield wiper motor park operation is controlled by the BCM. The BCM recieves an input from the park switch to determine wiper blade position. When the wiper blades are at the bottom of the windshield glass in park position the wiper park switch will open and the circuit will be pulled up to B+ by the BCM. The park signal will be pulled to ground by the wiper motor park switch while the wiper blades are not in the park position.
The BCM controls the windshield wiper motor through two output controls, controlling two relays which determine the desired wiper speed, high or low
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
The body control module (BCM) monitors the voltage on the windshield wiper switch signal 2 circuit for diagnostic purposes. If the circuit is shorted to voltage while the driver is commanded OFF, the BCM will store DTC B3715. If the circuit is shorted to ground while the driver is commanded ON, the BCM will store DTC B3715. Refer to DTC B3715.
It would be best to have a factory scan tool to diagnose this problem . it would make it easier anyway .

Wipers stop in the middle of my wishield,will not park properly


Sorry , no adjustment .
Wiper/Washer System Components
The Wiper / Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper / washer switch
• Windshield wiper system module / motor
• Windshield washer fluid pump
• Windshield washer fluid level switch
• WPR 25A fuse
Wiper / Washer System Operation
The windshield wiper motor module is part of the windshield wiper motor cover and controls the wiper motor operation. The windshield wiper motor is a 2 speed motor. Windshield wiper DELAY operation is a low speed wiper motor function with a variable delay interval between the wipe cycles. The DELAY interval is controlled through a series of resistors within the wiper / washer switch.
Park Position Operation
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.

Jaguar xk8 problems


loosen the nut at the bottom of the blades so that the wiper motor will work without moving the blades. cycle the wipers and allow the motor to come to the rest position. Fit the blades and tension the nut. Pull the arms off the windscreen and cycle the wiper motor to run until it stops put the wipers back on the screen and see where they are. IF parked properly then OK but if any where then replace the wiper motor as the sequencing gear inside is out of sync with the wiper action.

When I turn off my windshield wipers they stop in the middle of the windshield. Why?


There is a tab that bends and sometimes brakes. When you shut off the wipers the wiper motor reverses and is supposed to catch a tab to park the wipers. If the tab misses the catch they stop in the up position.

M LEFT WINDSHIELD WIPER BLADE ON THE DRIVERS SIDE GOES WAY OUT PAST THE WINDOW FRAME. WHEN I SHUT IT OFF IT STOPS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WINDOW. THE OTHER ONE WORKS FINE


All you need to do is to remove the wiper blades of the driver side and then switch on and off the wipe so that the other wiper is seen to work in correct position. Now switch off and in the parked condition, fit back the driver side wiper to the stem.
The wiper must now work
