Thanks for asking me about your wiper problem. I've got to let you know up front that this could be a multi-step process (perform a test, the results determine the next step). I'll also be asking some questions to get a better grip on where the problem may be. I'll explain what I'm asking
so you can better help me help you. Just comment me back with your findings.
I know people have jobs and lives. I don't expect an immediate response so don't worry about it. It's important that you take your time, be safe.
If you have something you can use to test voltage (test light or volt meter), get it out. You will also need A length of wire, preferably with clips on the ends (just to keep your hands free) to supply voltage for some of the tests.
Be patient. You are my eyes and ears. From the way you described the problem, you won't have a any trouble, we're going to do great. Let's get started.
- The pulled wire, how was it connected? (just curious)
- When you grounded the wire from the wiper motor, did it spark? Was the ignition and/or the wiper switch on at the time?
- Is the delay after market?
- Were the fuses checked again after the wire was grounded? (I figured you wouldn't pull a wire if nothing was wrong, you would've checked fuses before pulling wires, so....)
- Wiper motor: How many wires come out of it? (some motors have multiple speeds wired into them (two to four wires), others are controlled by an electric pulse (one or two), some have after market delays wired in)
- Did the pulled wire look like it was added or was it original from manufacturer?
- After you have confirmed the fuses are ok again. On the wire that was pulled, test it for voltage with the ignition and wiper switch on.
- Need to know the wiring config before I put any test power to the motor.
Get back to me when you can.
