Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Windshield wipers wont turn off, changed switch, motor, and even got a different steering column still runs as soon as you turn the key.

I need to find out how to get the wipers to work with the switch instead of all the time. I hooked the radio back up and checked all the things I was told about to fix and nothing has worked so far. new motor, new switch, even changed steering column and still nothing.

SOURCE: 1998 Jeep Wrangler Electrical Short in Steering Column?

I had a similar problem with my 2000 Jeep TJ and I found the problem in the wiring harness under the hood.several wires were corroded and almost burnt off.If you remove the black tape which keeps the harness bundled together and if you see evidence of "green" type powder or "gook" it's most likely where the wires have faulted.

The only other part that could be the problem with the winshield wipers not working in slow-mode or not park when you shut off the wiper switch is the winshield wiper motor, it has a park swith inside the motor to shut off the wipers and park them were they should be.

SOURCE: Windshield wipers don't work

Ok, this is a steering column issue. The wiring needs to be replaced. Shouldn't cost much at all. also, the external switch may have issues as well but, i suggest you re wire your steering column to fix this problem.

blown fuse, faulty wiper motor or faulty wiper switch. Possible you got a bad new wiper motor if you replaced everything in the order you wrote it in.

1986 volkswagen windshield wipers will not turn off?


look for signs of a windshield leaking water into fuse/relay box- located near pedals under dash. Also remove small plastic trim below steering wheel ( 2 screws) and unplug black connector with 6 or 8 wires directly under steering column. Turn key on if wipers are stopped then your switch is bad- steering wheel must be removed to change switch.

The only thing left is the wiper switch. Check for power at the wiper motor when in low position (should be a green or white with green tracer wire). Also check the connection at the base of the steering column for the wiper switch.

This sounds like the wiper control module.Most of these are a module attached to the wiper motor but are replaceable seperate from the wiper transmisson.

My best guess is the switch is bad. Did you replace it? The problem could also be the bcm, but I would test the switch first. Remove it and check it with an ohmmeter.

Turn Signal Switch

CAUTION
The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the air bag or SIR system wiring. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable from the battery.
  2. In order to disarm the air bag system, allow the system capacitor to discharge for at least 2 minutes, before performing any removal procedures.
  3. Remove the upper and lower steering column shrouds.
  4. Disconnect the electrical connector from behind the combination switch.
  5. Remove the mounting screws securing the combination switch to the steering column adapter collar.
  6. Remove the combination switch from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Install the combination switch to the steering column adapter collar. Tighten the combination switch mounting screws.
  2. Reconnect the electrical connector to the combination switch.
  3. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds and tighten the retaining screws.
  4. Reconnect the negative battery cable and check all functions of the combination switch for proper operation.

If it is the turn lever wiper switch most likely switch is bad not to hadr to replace. After you remove the column plastics there are two torx screws holding switch on.

Windshield Wipers turn on & off on their own.


Most likely the problem is the wiper control module; it is in the plastic housing on the wiper motor that you should be able to replace easily and is MUCH cheaper and easier to replace than the switch on you steering column that rarely fails. you probably had some water get into the housing and short out the curcuit board that comprises the wiper control module. enjoy
