Question about Cars & Trucks
I replaced the circuit board but that did not solve the problem. They are still running.
Posted by Anonymous on
Two possibilities that I can think of without knowing the exact make and model of the vehicle:
First its possible your wiper relay is stuck(bad) to test this out without having to spend any money, find the wiper relay (usually in the engine compartment fuse box) and swap it out with another relay known to be good (horn relay is my typical go to) if you switch the relays and the wipers turn on and off properly, you've got your answer, get a new relay and you'll be good (not a good idea to put the possibly bad one where you borrowed the other relay from (meaning dont stick the wiper relay in place of the horn relay or your horn may sound and not shut off)
possibility 2: you could have a bad wiper switch.
There is also a chance you could have a short in the wiring for the wiper motor that is bypassing the switch and or relay, sending constant power to the motor with no way of stopping it. If my first two suggestions don't work, you may want to have a professional take a look, unless you are comfortable trouble shooting auto electrical systems

Kind of need to know the MAKE, MODEL and year to get very close, ...but most of the time wipers not shutting off is an issue within the motor itself. The intermittent circuit uses the same as off circuit, so eventually it fails to make unit shut off.
