99 f350 super duty, wipers would only come on sometimes. I changed wiper motor now they still don't work


The generic electronic module (GEM) responds to the windshield wiper control commands by interpreting inputs from the steering column multi-function switch. The speed dependent wipers will compensate for the extra moisture that accumulates on the windshield at higher speeds, except when the multi-function switch is in the INT 1 position. At higher speeds, the speed dependent feature shortens the delay between wipes when using the variable interval wipers. Delays will automatically adjust at speeds between 16 and 105 km/h (10 and 65 mph).
Testing should be done before replacing any parts . And if you don't know about (GEM) Control module controlled system's your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . The first place to start trouble shooting these systems is with a scan tool that can read GEM module codes .

Does the wiper motor have a module that you can replace or do you have to buy a new motor on a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville?


The only module that may be tied into the wiper motor is the body control module and failure rate on these is low. What are the symptoms? Wipers not working? Wipers won't park? Motor runs but wipers won't move?

Wipers stopped working. Both wipers sweep when one is moved manually. I think it's the wiper transmission linkage, but I'm not sure. Could it be just the bushing?


Turn on the wipers and listen you should hear the motor running if the Linkage broke, and since the wipers were out of range hitting off the glass that does sound like the linkage.

My wipers are not working . The wiper moto is fine.


This can be due to failure in the links , failure of the main cam gear or failure of the knurling at the base of the wiper blade fittings.
when motor is running if there is no reciprocating movement then the gear within has failed, if moving the knurling and wiper blade base have slipped.

I have a 1999 hyundai accent and the wipers havnt worked in a while, its been sitting in the garage for a bit but i dont know what is wrong, i believe it is the wiper motor but im not sure. when i turn the...


You know it sounds like a break in the linkage as the wiper motor will not usually let you freely move the wiper arms yourself. Generally there is an arm attached to the motor which in going around and around makes a side to side action in the wiper linkage. Without any more info I would suspect a failure in the ball joint connection between the wiper motor arm and the linkage. On a car that old most likely you should look around for a replacement used linkage on eBay or Craigslist. Once obtained, get yourself a repair manual or search on youtube for a video on how to remove and replace the linkage. there are many folks selling repair manuals on CD for about 10 bucks on eBay.

Windshield wiper failure on 98 Chevy Malibu


Hi, you wont be able to move the wipers manually as they will be locked by the motor. There is only two obvious reasons why the motor should fail again. The new motor was a poor quality replacement or there is an underlying problem on the car like the wiper motor mechanism has excessive play or is stiff/tight and over working the motor causing it to fail. you need to have a proper check over before swapping it again.
