The motor is protected with a fuse and a circuit breaker. Check both to see if either need to be replaced. The fuse box is under the dash on the drivers side near the door. Open the box and look on the lid. You will find a list of all fuses, their amperage and what they protect. Remove the correct fuse by pulling it out with the plastic "fuse puller" that is stored in the fuse box cover. It looks similar to a short pair of tweezers.The fuse is burned out and needs to be replaced if the filament in the fuse is burned in half. If the fuse is good, you would next want to remove the wiper motor and use a volt meter to check for voltage between the wires that plug into the motor. Be sure to check for voltage with the wiper motor switch turned on. If you have power then you have bad motor, if you don't have power, you have an electrical problem.
The breaker should only turn off if the motor overheats due to something like the wiper being frozen to the window and not able to operate when you turn it on. This should reset once the wipers are turned off and the motor cools.
The gate light on my 2002 Liberty was on for a long time and I researched on this site about it but ended up just hitting the trip meter button after starting up and that canceled it out. The other day my rear window wiper was not working and my security system had quit working also. Looking at the book in the fuse section I found that the rear window wiper is on it's own fuse, number 17 in my 2002. I took that fuse out and looked at it and it seamed good, no break or burn marks. I replaced the fuse anyway and low and behold the rear window wiper worked, the gate light went out, and the security system was working again. I could not find a fuse for the security system of the gate light.....they are all on the rear wiper fuse. Problem solved, hope this helps you, I found it purely by accident.
My wife has a 08 Fox and her front wipers stopped working it's just a fuse in bank 7 a 10 amp just replace with a new one or swap for the 10 amp fuse in bank 11 (just a warning lamp for the handbrake) until you get a new one. ;-)
Well this can be caused by the thermostat being stuck open. The coolant temp will not come up to expected temp. It can also be caused by the fan being stuck on. Run the car and see if the fan stays on. If the fan is not stuck on it may well be the t-stat and replacing that should cause the check engine light to go off after a drive cycle.
Check Relay connection pins,check for dirty fuse, connect a direct power supply from a 2 nd battery, to the correct Pos/Neg. wiper motor terminals. If the Motor is good, it will energise immediately, if not, you got your answer.
check for power at the wiper motor. If power at the wiper motor but no wiper action then replace the motor. if no power at the motor then use a jumper wire and put power to the motor. Does motor run? if so check for open circuit in the wire someplace.
