The clutch in the wiper motor is bad or you burned up the circuit inside otherwise the transmitter to the wipers are no good you are supposed to allow the car to warm up while the defrost is on and after the car warms up and the windschield starts to melt the snow or ice then use the wipers (the wipers aren't built to push weight or scrape ice only to clean the water from the glass surface)

How to take off the rear windsheild wiper on a 94 grand cherokee


You will need a 13-inch wiper blade for the rear window. 1 - When removing the wiper blade lift the wiper arm away from the window. ----- 2 - With one hand holding the wiper arm press the small tab on the underside of the wiper blade where it meets the wiper arm. ----- 3 - Slide the wiper blade off of the arm by pulling the center toward the bottom of the arm.----- 4 - Lightly lay the wiper arm on the window.----- 5 - Prepare your new wiper blade by taking the curved part of the plastic clip and line it up with the curve of your wiper arm. ----- 6 - Lift the wiper arm and press it through the center of the wiper blade up and over the plastic clip. 7 - Pull the wiper blade up until it clicks. Place the arm back on the window.

Windsheild wiper does not remain in contact for the full stroke.The blade actually raises off the windsheild.1995 volvo wagon. three sets of blades, two sets replaced by mechanics.


Try this:

With ignition on, turn on wiper switch. When wiper arm gets to point where blade does not touch screen, turn off ignition switch so that wipers do not return to park position. It may take a few goes to stop arm in the right position so repeat process until it is in the best position.

Check main wiper arm and bend slightly towards windscreen so that blade touches screen and there is some spring pressure from the arm to keep blade on screen. Also check that there is no interference between main arm and the section which supports the rubber blade. If you get blade chatter as the arm sweeps, twist the end of the main arm slightly in the opposite direction to the movement that produces the chatter. It may take a bit of trial and error to get it all right.

2002 ford crown vic. driver side wiper not working? passenger side works


the linkage between the wiper motor and the wiper arms needs to be replaced. the stud on the one side is stripped and that is why it doesn't work as it should. this happens usually when the wipers are left on in the winter with the blades freezing to the windsheild. turn on the car with frozen blades tends to strip out the teeth holding the wiper arms onto the linkage

Windsheild Wipers will not move, the arm seems to be slipping on the motor shaft,


It sounds like you live in a climate were snow and ice occurs. If so a lot of people leave their wipers on upon shutting off their cars. If you happen to do that and the windsheild had moister on it or if the snow starter falling while your vehicle was still warm it will freeze. The larger the snow amount the stronger the force will be if you start your vehicle up the next morning with your wipers buried in frozen ice & snow. Since the wipers were not shut off the wiper motor will run and the wiper blades will not. This will strip the linkage the wiper arms press onto leaving you with out working windsheild wipers

Need to see windsheild wiper assembly- sheer pin? Wiper frozen to window in winter. When turned on, it did not work. Other wiper works fine.


the little splines that turn your wiper arms have been rounded off. not sure what your question is... you need to see it? you need to replace it.

Cold weather wiper problem


Dear joelgoodison,

Could be the Fuse!
Could be the Wiper Motor Burn't Out if Blades were frozen to windshield when turned on
Until you fix the problem you can buy RainX Wipe-On Glass Solution or Windsheild Washer Fluid which as unbelievable as it sounds will allow you to drive in the all but the worst downpours of rain without wipers!
I love the RainX Windsheild Washer Fluid and rarely use my wipers.
Check the fuses and try RainX and get back to me!
Hope this Helps!

1994......winshhield wipers don't shut off when switched off.....shut off only when ignition is turned off


I had the same problem, my boy turned the wipers on when they were frozen to the windsheild, he took it to a repair shop, they told him it needed a wiper switch. when he brought it home i priced a switch they wanted 175.00 for one. did some test on it and came to conclusion it was in the wiper motor,got a used one for 45.00 and that fix it.

Wipers


You have two problems. The first is the wipers turn off and stay in the upright position and do not close. The motor is fine. There is a steal 'close' tab that has been bent out of position. You just need to push the steal tab back into position. You can use a chisel or screwdriver to pound it back into the 90 degree position.

The windsheild washer motor probably needs to be replaced
