Why do my wipers only come on when I push the button for the wiper fluid?

Wipers only stay on for about 5 wipes before they shut back off. I have to keep pushing the wiper fluid button to get them to turn back on.

Most newer cars have the module built into the wiper motor. They can go bad and run on any mode. Yours happens to be washer mode. I would replace the motor.

Try looking at the Washer bottle under the bonnet to see if it's empty. If it has water in it, the windscreen nozzles are probably blocked. Use a very thin strand of wire to unblock or you could purchase a camping stove pricker from a camping shop to make the job easier.

2007 kia rio windshield wipers automatically switch on and off how would I fix it


as the washer fluid bottle was damaged there is a possability that the washer pump has been damaged and is shorting out and sending the signal to wipers that the washer pump is being operated so the wipers will wipe,hope that make sense , one way to test this is to unplug the electrical connector from the washer pump, keep me posted as i am intrigued by this sort of problem, as have to think outside the box a bit

The problem is you don't know how to use it. Try and flick it right back to get it out of the intermittent mode. Also when you turn the wipers on it will stay on unless you turn it off, it's like a light bulb..

My windshield wipers quit. They gave no indication of going. On morning I turned them on to wipe the fresh snow away. They started, went about 1/3 of windshield and quit. They went back down and I can't...


The wiper linkage is either broken, or has become un-attached...You will need to remove the wiper arms and plastic shroud above the linkage to inspect...When re-assembling be sure to have the wipers turned off, and in the down position...when mounting the arms back onto the spindles...Hope this helps.

Window wiper problem


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.

Wipers


You have two problems. The first is the wipers turn off and stay in the upright position and do not close. The motor is fine. There is a steal 'close' tab that has been bent out of position. You just need to push the steal tab back into position. You can use a chisel or screwdriver to pound it back into the 90 degree position.

The windsheild washer motor probably needs to be replaced
