Wipers wont wipe

My micra 54 wipers just stopped working - switched them on - seemed to swing real fast and hit the rubber bit round windscreen, I can hear the motor running when I switch on, is this an easy fix as (being a woman, with little tech knowlwdge, but not daft ) generally going to a garage is a haphazzard event for me.

It is possible that you tightened the bolts for the arms themselves to much and it is to much resistance for the motor. Try loosening the bolts a bit and see if that helps. Aside from that make sure that you are getting a full 12V to the plug by testing it with a multimeter for DC Voltage. Hope this helps you.

Windscreen wipers only work on fast not onnormal or int


Hi most likely the switch that operates the wipers is broke and not the wipers motor.

Get it tested before replacing it, but most often alfa's have so many electrical problems it's difficult to say.

Front windscreen wiper wont stop why its a mitsubishi lancer evo4 i was touching the windscreen washer pump which had ceased working wipers came on and wont stop have to take the fuse out to stop them


Most cars turn on the wipers when the washer pump is turned on. Look for a stuck switch or relay in the washer circuit. It seems that the wipers think that the washer is on.

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.
