Question about 2005 GMC Canyon

1 Answer

My winshield wipers only work at times.

Some times my wipers work and at times they do not. I checked the fuses but can only really tell if one is working. wondering where the wiper motor is so I can check to see if it looks OK. Is it wise to replace the fuses or is it more likely a wiper issue?

I'm not clear, one what? One fuse or one wiper? The wiper motor is under the hood on the drivers side. I'm asking one what because if one wiper is not working then it could be fixed by just simply tightening the nut on the wiper arm/s. But that's if the wiper/s aren't working with the wiper transmission. Good luck.

Winshield wiper try to move but wont, the last time they worked was on high. when ignighton is turned on wipers jumps like they are trying to work.. during this time the wiper motor is very hot.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It sounds like your transmission in the wiper motor is slipping or broke. I would think you probably need a new one. But before, check your fuses. It could also be your actual wiper switch that is broke. But hearing what you said, I would think it is the motor.

Did you check the fuse? (most likely culprit) Sometimes during heavy snow the motor gets overloaded gets hot and blows the fuse.

My winshield wiper's aren't working because my fuse for it keeps burning out and i know it's not the wiper motor what else could be going on?

Check your wipers are parking in correct position -if there has been slippage at their attachment spigot they may be jamming the motor during use causing fuse failure.
Check for overload on any other circuit that may be sharing the wiper fuse.
Check wiper fuse is a firm fit in the fuse holder, and making good electrical connection.

Just bought 2004 passat and winshield wipers dont work

If both wipers are not working, then first of all check your fuses, if fuses are good follow wiper motor wires or look in owner's manual to find the wiper relay. Test relay with ohmmeter to see if it is good or just replace it.
Double check all wiring.
Last possible cause would be the a bad wiper switch which you can also test with an ohmmeter
