SOURCE: the rear wiper workes if


You may want to check one thing. Roll the rear window down a few inches and then rolll it back up. There must be a relay switch to tell the car the window is open. If that does not work, it might be the relay switch.

There are three possible points of failure; the motor, the parking switch, and finally the switch that turns it on.
Obviously, the motor is located in the hatch itself but also there will be a parking switch that supplies power to the motor after the user switch is turned off and until the blade is in the park position. The user switch is of course located on the dash or in a stalk on the steering column. Check for voltage with a multimeter at the motor and/or continuity of it. You should be able to eliminate the items that are working in 20 or 30 minutes.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Expedition: Rear Wiper won't work.

Don't make this more difficult than it is. One of the gears inside the wiper motor is made out of bad quality plastic, and wont last very long. Replace it with a used one is just a wast of money, get a brand new one.

A relay is used to switch on high amperage with low amperage.
Think of amperage or current, as water, a low running stream and a fast flowing river.
The relay will magnetize a coil and pull down contacts to make a circuit.

check fuse first then get the wire checked to see if there is any power going to it you can do this with a bulb and a couple of bits of wire connect wire put it on battery to see if bulb lights up if it does there's your circuit tester use this to see if there is power if still not there will be a break in the wire some where also make sure the earth for the motor is connected if it has one but most as long as they are bolted to body thats your earth hope this helps ivan

Ford Expidition 2001, rear wiper is not working, water sprays but no action

The washer and wiper are two separate circuits. At the central junction box check 15A fuse 14 which feeds the battery saver relay. At the battery junction box, check fuse 12 which feeds the rear wiper down and up relays. Rear wiper action is controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM). If the rear wiper switch is set to one of the intermittent positions, the battery saver relay closes to apply power to the wiper down and up relays. The GEM selects high/low or park operation. Note that there is an internal thermal breaker in the rear wiper motor so if everything else checks out, the motor may have overheated and opened that fuse. also, the rear wiper relay(s) could be defective

Rear wiper Ford Explorer 1998 won't work. Replaced motor and then found there was no power to connector at wiper motor. Fuses good both on fuse panel and power distribution box. Washer on wiper arm works.

Look for the fuse for the rear wiper motor is a 15 amp mini-fuse , in location # 8 of your POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX in the engine compartment. Check in the PD BOX for; - relay # 8 is the rear wiper down relay , and - relay # 10 is the rear wiper up relay .

Rear wiper does not work at all. front wipers work fine. rear washer works

1. check the fuse to the rear wiper motor
2. check for power to rear wiper motor at the motor (power wire going in to the wiper motor with rear wiper switch on)
If you have good fuses & have power going in to the rear wiper motor...
3. Pull old rear wiper motor and install a new rear wiper motor.
Thank you please drive thru......
