Question about 2000 Plymouth Neon
I assume there's something with the wiring going on because the windshield wipers (ww) go on their own. They turn on when I have the headlights on and when I have the a/c on. Even more so when both the headlights and a/c are on. Not knowing what else to do, my bf took the ww fuse out and showed me how to put it back when it rains so now i just remove and replace the fuse whenever necessary.

SOURCE: Windshield Wipers
Under the cowl (it is a plastic piece that the windshield wipers come out of) are the wiper arms that connect to the wiper motor. There are plastic parts that hold the wiper arms to the wiper motor. Lots of time these plastic parts dry out and break and the wiper arm will fall off the wiper motor. I would bet if you tried to move one of the wipers by hand both of them would move with little resistance. This would tell me that the wiper arms are disconnected from the wiper motor. The parts to fix this are easy to get. I know the motormite HELP line of parts used to have the plastic bushings to fix this problem.

Sure pull the cover off the arm at the base(by the bottom of the windshiel) under that you will find a bolt. Unbolt the arm and pull it off then adjust both arms so that they do not entangle at the high point. You can turn on the wipers and when they reach the high end quickly shut off ignition they will stop at this position so you can adjust them, This is what we would do at the shop for about 200 bucks. Take your time and be sure to tighten everything up when you're don and you will do great. Have fun.

Remove the wiper arms amd the panel between the hood and the windshield. There are teflon bushings on the actuater arms that wear out, they are cheap and available from the dealer but can be tricky to install because of the limited access.

We had a '96 Dodge Caravan that did the same thing when it was nearly new, but never did find the problem. Several mechanics said that these cars had bad local grounding problems, but never proved it. By the time Chilton's repair manual had come out for this car, the problem had fixed itself (nearly 150,000 miles by then). There is an auto-park switch on the wiper motor that may be mis-adjusted which could cause intermittent spontaneous operation. The motor can be accessed by removing the cowl plate just in back of the hood. The body computer which controls the wiper motor is located on the passenger side front wheel well near the washer reservoir. Check around this for any ground wire connections that could be cleaned and re-tightened. Remove the screws that hold the body computer to the panel as they may have become rusted from wheel splash--wire brush the threads and apply heavy grease. Reinstall them firmly. The only other possibility is metal junk in the wiper control switch. Hope this helps!
