Common problem with Golf, the wiper linkages are partially seized on the spinldes. The spindles are the rods that stick up out through the plastic panel at the bottom of the windscreen and the wiper arms connect to them.
Disconnect the wiper linkage from the motor and try manually moving them but I think you will find that they are seized. You will need to completely remove the linkage assembly and clamp it in a vice and use a lubricant spray oil to work into the spindles. Either that or fit a new or good second hand linkage

Wipers wont come on. replaced relay inide, fuses,


The switch that runs the wipers, applies a ground to the wiper motor.
If you have 12V on the hot side of the motor, there must be something wrong with that ground connection.
There are two ground connections at the motor, one for slow speed and one for high speed. So try high speed just to test if that ground will work.
Intermittent applies a ground to the slow speed automatically. So try int also.
At the connector on the motor, you could apply your own ground wire.
Hope this helps.

Wipers only work on fast. Checked the relay and its good, checked the switches and its good. What else needs to be checked?


This is (obviously) a two-speed motor. The low speed winding is burned out. Replace the motor.

I have 1998 dodge caravan. When you turn on the wipers, it keeps running and never shut off. Eventhough the wipers switch is working on slow and fast speed but when you turn the switch to off position, it...


There is a device made into the wiper motor itself, known as the wiper park switch. Its designed to turn off the wipers at a pre-determined position once you switch them off. The mfr recommends replacing the motor along with the intermittent timer (if equipped) at the same time when experiencing these problems.

Is there a procedure to check the wiper motor on 1991 S10 pickup (only 42000 miles), to be sure it is defective and not a wiring problem?


ONLY PROCEDURE FOR WIPER MOTOR IS YOU HAVE 2 SPEEDS THAT WORK SLOW AND FAST SPEED.WIPERS WILL RETRACT TO THE BOTTOM OF HOOD LINE WHEN YOU TURN OFF. WIPERS SHOULD TURN OFF. CHECK WIPER RESERVOIR MAKE SURE ITS FULL AND WIPER WASHER SPRAY FLUID CLEAN WINDSHIELD. IF WIPER MOTOR DO ALL THE ABOVE THEN ITS OKAY.IF WIPER MOTOR WORKS SLOW LOOK FOR BINDING AT WIPER ARM LINKAGE AND PIVOT LUBRICATE LINKAGE AND PIVOT COULD HELP.IF WIPER MOTOR DONT WORK CHECK FOR POOR GROUND OR BLOWED FUSE.WIPER WORK AT ONE SPEED CONTROL SWITCH IS BAD.IF WIPER BLADES STOP WHERE EVER THEY ARE OR FAIL TO TURN OFF UNLESS YOU TURN OFF IGNITION SWITCH WIPER MOTOR LIMIT SWITCH BROKEN.IF WIPERS DONT RETRACT BELOW BOTTOM HOOD LINE LOOK FOR MECHANICAL OBSTRUCTION OR WIPER MOTOR FAULTY.

1985 gmc k1500 wipers only move at 1 slow spped, interminttent doesnt work at all. How fast is fast and why is fast not working?


Slow is the same speed as 'mist'. Mist is when you twist the control arm backwards to induce a single swipe. If you hold it, you will run the wipers in low speed. Fast is faster than that. Probably by 30% or more.

Turn the wipers on high speed. Wiggle the connector at the wiper motor. If the wipers run sporadically as you wiggle the connector, you either have a bad connector or a bad circuit board on the wiper motor.

Wipers stop after 5 minutes of slow or intermiant speed use.


Try replacing the Wiper Motor Pulse Board Module. It is available at aftermarket parts stores, it is easy to replace, and it is a high failure item. Eventually, the module will fail completely and leave you with no wipers.

Wiper Speed changes from slow to fast then back to slow without moving switch!


the reason for your wiper speed change is due to the rain sensor which controls the speed of your wipers,determined by how much rain is comming down.the rain sensor is located behind your rear view mirror.
