Question about 2003 Ford Expedition

2 Answers

My rear wiper started slow and then just stopped a couple of days ago. Now the battery is completely dead. Is it possible that the wiper drained the battery and/or is there a more probable cause for the dead battery?

Yes- the wiper did drain the battery... the arm is seized up and the motor is still trying to move it... replace the ar. assembly and it should solve your problem...

2008 chevy equinox rear windshield wiper not working and battery dying. will work when jumping, but dies after being off a few minutes.


you have something draining the battery. you will need to find out were the drain is coming from. could be the alarm /radio/ external alarm module. you will need to find what is doing it. wipe motor could have a a short but that should not affect battery when the car is locked up.

Battery died but when opened up to check battery there is a ticking sound


Yes one of the relays could be draining the battery.
I would open the fuse and relay boxes and try to find where the noise is coming from. If it is a relay, pull it out and see if the noise stops.

Your alternator has probably failed causing your battery to go dead if not that than your battery has a bad cell and you will need to replace the battery.

Dead battery new batt alt gr cable no fues blow jo


Common battery drain would be 1. the light under the hood staying on when the hood is closed. 2. The vanity light over the drivers sun shade if there is anything up there that is keeping the vanity shades from closing all the way. 3. pull the fuse to the rear wiper motor, common for the wiper motor to lose it's position and tries to close even when it's already closed. 4 there is a short in your 4wd encoder motor on the transfer case.
Start with the simple and check them all one by one till you have determined where your voltage drain is coming from.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Rear window wiper works for a few days or weeks


Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.

Wiper problems


It was the wiper motor that chewed your battery because this motor only stops when the wipers are at their normal resting position. Have the car checked on why the wipers jammed..check under bonnet wiper arms.

Sounds like a problem within the wiper motor not turning off at rest or not reaching it's rest point to be able to turn itself off, probably needs a new motor. Disconnecting it should have no relation to the front washer operation, you can confirm this by reconnecting the wiper motor to try.

I've had similar problems on Fords whit batteries going dead very quickly the fastest one was a relay stuck on specifically the fuel pump relay(1986 tbird) and once it was the EEC power relay (1991 F150) both caused the fuel pump to stay running and in less than an hour my battery was dead. I also had an f150 (92) that had a bad glove box light switch) but it would take a day or so. I'd check to see if you have a bad relay that is causing a motor to run, fuel pump, or electric cooling fan(if equipped) otherwise you have some sort of short in the system draining your battery they are usually not so quick.
