Question about 1994 Toyota Camry
Sometimes my wipers run all the time even with the switch turned off. I suspect the washer pump may be shorting out causing the wipers to continue to run (because it thinks washer fluid is being sprayed on the windshield). This only happens if the car is in the car wash or if it is raining. So water must be causing something to short out. How do i get to the washer pump? Could the park switch inside the wiper motor be shorting out from water and causing this?

I don't think any Camrys that year had rain sensing wipers so you could be right. Anyway to get at the pump you have to unscrew fixings and lift up the washer reservoir to disconnect the wiring, then remove the reservoir.

make sure the ground wire is conected and tight this could be the problem check all wires that bolt to frame and body for tightness, also check ones on the engine

Probably need to replace the pump. Separate pumps for front and rear. Check with a test light to see if there is power to the pump. If it has power but won't work, replace the pump. If no power, you have a wiring issue. Be sure to turn the switch on and have someone push the washer button when you are checking for power. There won't be any until you push it to "wash".

First of all disconnect the motor before you change the fuse and then try it out. If the fuse blows out hten you have a fault in the line that goes through the harness. If you are not able to isolate the line cut off and use a new line to the motor. However if the fuse stays fine the it is confirmed that your motor is short. You will need to remove the wiper motor unit and check inside for a short in the motor winding or the cummutators. USe a ggood multimeter to see for short and if it has burned then you will need to replace or rewind as acordingly to the cost feasibility. If the motor was stuck due to a damaged spiral gear or the drive wheel replace and proceed. Hope you try this out one by one. Good day

Don't really know of the vehicle, but what I am use to is that this could be the switch Since the wipers do work that rules out the motor. But, there could be a fuse or relay that controls that part of the system?
