2006 sorento wipers wont go down all the way when off

2006 Kia Sorento, wipers work great but when I turn them off, they stop in the middle of the windshield. No work or replacement has ever been done, just one day started doing this. I can turn them off then get out and push them all the way down and they will stay put. Have tried disconnecting battery and no change.

The wiper motor has a park mode built in. It's one of two possible problems. The park mode is bad and the motor needs to be replaced. Usually this can be identified by the wipers stopping all over the place.
The second is that the linkage off of the motor has moved, and it will park in the same spot all of the time. Here you need to release the motor to linkage nut, and move the arms to where they should be, and retighten.

Just purchased a 2006 Sorento approximately three months ago and the battery has gone dead already. They did not give me a key.

SOURCE: 2006 kia sorento windshield wiper hang up

When you put the wipers on, you positioned them incorrectly so now they go where they shouldn't.
To fix this you need to first make note of which one goes over the other and keep them that way.

Next, put a piece of tape on the windshield where you think they normally go and use that as your target when reinstalling them. Your tape target will probably be 6 -8 inches above the base of the windshield. The wipers should be almost level when at rest.

You'll have to position them with the wiper motor off and in the 'park' position, which means that you turn them on, then turn them off (not with the key) and let them go down to the bottom of the windshield. At that point, you can begin repositioning them.

Good luck!

2006 kia sorento the mode motor isn't working bought a new one and it doesn't work either


Hello Michael Wallace,

http://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/kia,2006,sorento,3.5l+v6,1432794,heat+&+air+conditioning I've

gone through the parts available... there seems to be several references to mode motors, A/C, Transfer Case... Even windshield wiper motor "PARK" mode (typically a parking motor reversal "MODE" that draws (old retractable wipers under cover... popular in the early 1970's... well before KIA)...

I only got into this because your question got SPAMMED out of the mainstream...

I've even gone to BBB Industries (registration required) to see if their bulletins had any MODE issue.

Could you resubmit what a MODE MOTOR is...
and perhaps some of our more competent VOLUNTEERS
can step forward and give you meaningful assistance.

Sorry about the SPAM from jamessizer... I'll try to have it removed.

SINCERE Apologies!

Kia Sorento 2007:My windshield wiper stops on wrong side, what can I do?'.


If the wipers are consistent in where they stop the problem may be due to the splined shaft of the drive motor has rotated within wiper linkage attachment. Remove motor/linkage assembly remove linkage from motor and check for stripped splines on the linkage/motor. Willie

2006 Kia sorento air conditioner and windshield wipers stopped working


It may be possible , these newer cars use so many modules and computers , there are not like the older cars. its is like the your problem it could be getting power for a few fuse locations.

The best thing to do would be to check all the fuses . the inside and the under the hood fuse boxes.

One fuse could power the a/c and then another power the module and another power the same module and if one of the three blow then things operated by the module may not operate, so the answer again , it may be related or not so check all the fuses first. good day

2006 kia wipper works but stops in the middle of the windshield


It sounds like the the circuit board has gone bad and does not know where the base is any more so it will stop at the middle or the windshield. Auto Zone should have a new board if it's replaceable like the GM products. Good luck and hope this helps, In the mean time you can always turn your wipers on and pull the fuse out when it's at the down position so it's not up.
