Sounds like the motor is tired. BUT!check the switch first. variable speed switches fail more often than wiper motors.

The wipers on my 2005 impala started not going into neutral position. I changed the motor as my mechanic insisted. Now they only worked on high setting. Then this morning as i pulled into workthey stopped...


the cause for the wipers not parking is the park tab on the wiper motor bracket is bent, replace the wiper motor bracket. as for the wipers not working at all, could be a faulty part. fit your old motor back onto the new bracket and test.

Windshield wipers on 1986 Ford Ranger stopped working


unplug the wire at the wiper motor and then turn the key on and then turn the wiper switch on and test the wires at the plug with a 12 volt tester . if u dont have any thing then ur wiper switch is bad , if u have juice at the plug then it sounds like its the motor.

2000 HYUNDAI ACCENT, problem is the Windshield Wiper operation is malfunctioning, in the Delay mode, and in the off position, Windshield Wiper arms/blades stop at the half point on the Windshield glas


The park position is controlled inside the motor/actuator assembly. Not sure if it can be repaired. See if it is assembled with screws versus rivets. A new assembly is less than $100.

Hi i have a mk4 golf, my front wipers were slow but now have stopped altogether, any ideas what problem could be?


If they slowly died it is most likely the wiper motor. Over time the brushes in the motor will wear down and the motor will need replacement.

Windscreen wipers stopped working ,went slow to begin with now stopped altogether!please advise and also cost??this is for an Audi A4 2002 ,I believe the motor is still ok as they will move tiny bit!!


Common for the linkages to fall apart or jam. You need to remove all the plastic cowling and have a look, it should be obvious when you see it.

Rear wiper and washer of BMW 5 E39 not working


I had the same problem. I thought it was an issue with a blown fuse, but also noticed that the rear wiper was very stiff.
I solved it by opening the rear window (so the wiper is not clicked into the motor) then squirt some WD40 into the wiper mechanism (I put the oil in from the outside). Gently move the wiper from side to side until it starts to free up - after a couple of movements the wiper should be moving freely again. No issues since.

At the same time, check that the washer jet is correctly angled. Mine was squirting directly into the wiper which may have caused it to rust up a bit.

1997 Saturn SL wipers wont stop


well the good thing is you know the wipers work !! , I would start by seeing if the washer squirters work when using the Wiper lever . and I would also see if it worked on fast speed and slow speeds . If it does you may have a wiper switch that has gone bad ! ,
