Check the connection of the wiper arms to the rotating shaft. They might be stripped. They're usually splined, and corrosion sometimes wears away the splines. The motor might be spinning, but how about the gearbox that connects the motor to the rotating shafts? It could have stripped teeth. I have seen this when someone forcibly tries to stop the wipers from rotating. Hope this helps. Bilal Hassan Clarksville, MD

SOURCE: windshield wipers don't work.Fuse is good.

Hello Firerocker.
If your washer motor works there is power in the circuit and ground.
The wiper motor housing needs to be grounded.
If neither one works check for power on the green wire leading into the motor. If nothing there your switch may be bad.
If there is power to the green wire then check for power on the gray wire on low wiper speed and power on purple on high speed.
Here is a diagram if you need it.

Hope this gets your wipers going again.

2005 acura tl, my wipers don't work, motor is good, fuses are good, only the sprayer work


This is a classic trouble shooting issue. You need to "follow" the electricity by testing that the wiper switch has power, that it turns power on/off, and then that the motor gets power when the switch is on. If that all tests good, the last bits include testing that the motor is properly grounded, and that if you manually turn the motor, the wipers move.

1999 gmc safari van wipers wont work


check fuse, then run a ground wire to the wiper motor and ensure the ground is good. if the wipers start to work then the motor just needs a permanent ground connected to it. if it doesn`t work then check for power at the motor if you have power then tap the motor with a hammer to see if it starts if so then the motor is bad.

1998 Crown Victora Wipers at Hi and Lo speeds work; so does intermittent wipers. However, a clicking sound from behind the glove box starts and the wipers will stop and go or retract and not come back up...


Could be the motor, or the actuator arms binding. You will have to remove the cowl cover and observe the arms in action. make sure the connector grommets are present and in good condition. If so , probably motor is overheating and tripping circuit breaker.

Wipers not working..2003 Lesabre


Due to your first sentence, your problem sounds like it is in the actual switch. If it were a bad motor you would have experienced it stopping in the "on" position.

My windshield wipers stop working, I have bought the motor, the switch, and new wipers, they still are not working what do I do, It is a 1994 Crown Victoria(Ford) and I need my wipers when it rains.


Hi if you have changed the motor for your wipers and the switch i would sugest you trace beck the Earth for the motor, it will not work if the earth if corroded or broken, try running a new wire from motor earth point to a new location just as a test.
Good Luck

Wiper on 2003 ford explorer. when turned on a noise comes from under dash and wipers dont work. they will work if I turn on switch and move the wipers, they will cycle once.


it sounds like the problem is the wiper motor if they work when you move them by hand.the motor probably has a bad spot in it,first try hooking up a jumper wire from the battery ground and the other end to the wiper motor body and make sure its a good ground at the motor.if the wipers work alright then permanently hook up a ground to the motor and body,as the motor will have a bad ground not allowing the wipers to work.

Wind screen wipers and central locking on x 5 suddenly don't work on x5 (rear wipers still work )


you may have two problems or they are both related, the first step would be to check all your fuses, then if fuses are good then test for power at motor to see if the motor is bad or the switch, you will need a test light to do this, turn power on to wipers and then test for power at motor.
