Why don't windshield wipers with rainsense work?

No wipers at all , hi , low , delayed ? You really need a factory scan tool to diagnose this problem , there is a lot involved ! The switch , BCM , wiper relay , an wiper hi relay ! With a scan tool you would be able to access data parameters in the BCM - body control module . When you turn the switch to turn on the wipers , that's an input to the BCM , the BCM then energizes the proper relay in the under hood relay box . Turning on the wipers ! Plus there could be trouble codes stored in the BCM pointing to a problem .
Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the low speed position, ground is applied through a resistor internal to the switch and the wiper switch low signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). In response to this signal, the BCM energizes the WPR relay by applying battery voltage through the wiper relay control circuit to the coil side of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the WPR fuse to flow through the switch input side of the WPR relay and out to the switch input side of the WPR HI relay. Since the wiper high relay is de-energized and its switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed control circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.
Wiper motor low speed operation and the WPR relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Scan Tool Output

1986 Ford Tempo LX wipers won't shut off, all the other speeds work fine.

You must have a bad wiper switch. By any chaqnce, is the headlight switch and wiper switch on the same stalk? The bad alternator may have shorted out the switch or it may have caused some wires to get hot, melted the insulation, and the heasdlight feed wire is passing current to the wipers-this would be hard to find, but look at the connector for the wiper switch, and check the wires both before and after the connector as far as you can to look for a wiring problem. I hope the new wiper switch fixes it.
Good luck.

Windshield wipers will not turn off

Usually caused by the canceling switch in the wiper motor failing. The switch normally allows the wiper motor to operate after the wiper switch is turned off so that the wipers are in the down position when the motor shuts off; otherwise the wipers would stop in any position when you shut the switch off.

The windshield wipers on my 1994 S 300 mercedes diesel work intermittently then quit and start up again seems like they are ready to crash for good. how do i repair so they work when needed?

1) It is normal for the wipers, in rain sensor mode, to cycle once upon startup.

2) In rain sensor mode, the wipers should be intermittent with the cycles increasing as the volume of moisture increases on the windshield. The speed will increase until it reaches the continuous slow speed of position 2 on the switch. It will not increase to the fastest speed which is position 3 on the switch. You have to go to the fastest speed by manually rotating the switch to postion 3. Doesn't seem like a design flaw to me.

I can turn my winshield wipers on but cant shut them off. I am supposed to have 3 speeds but don't even have that, and they shut off on their own. What could be the problem?

There are 2 things u should check, the WiPER SWiTCH and the circuit in the wiper motor.

The most common prob is the circuit in the wiper motor, there are contactors in there that when in certain points it controls the motor, and it seems to continually gives power to ur motor....

U can bring it to ur mechanic to fix tha and assess the prob!

Wipers will not turn off...

Do you turn them on by throwing a lever or by turning a dial?
It seems that the switch that controls the wipers may be stuck open.. (metal contacts not seperating)
