It needs a new wiper motor. It's really easy to replace, only takes about half hour to replace.

There is a circuit board on the back of the wiper motor that has a bad connection. You can buy the circuit board and replace it yourself. If you are handy with a solder iron, you can make the repairs on the circuit board yourself.

Wipers wont work in the cold


Sounds like there is moisture being collected on the control arms of your wipers. When that happens they will freeze depending on how low the temp. Try pouring Luke warm not hot water on the end of the wiper arms closest to the hood. Maybe even a blow dryer too.

Windshield wipers don't work. Not the fuse. Also my blinkers don't work. Had to take out fuse. If let in driver side blinker stays on. Arm does not do anything


Hi,

Start with the easy stuff. Since you've already ruled out fuses, both issues sound like bad relays. The blinker relay is usually in the fuse panel and cheap to replace.

The wiper relay if I'm not mistaken is in the switch assembly on the steering column. This is a little more expensive because you have to replace the whole switch assembly.

Good luck!

Did you try bending the metal arm going to the wiper blade so there is enough pressure to make the blade contact the window better. I just did one two days ago and if im reading what what you are saying right its is the same problem and it fixed it

I have no brake lights, the blinkers run really fast and if the headlights are on the blinkers will not run at all while braking. Any ideas?


Have the multi-function switch and its circuits tested. The multi function switch is the blinker arm and the components its attached to in the steering wheel column. The multifunction switch has to do with blinkers, cruise control, wipers, wiper spray, high beams and also tied in with headlight dimmers/daytime running lights(if applicable) and hazards usually.

A good place to start.

Where can I find the electrical specs? the blinkers both stopped working. The hazard blinkers do work.


Any other strange electrical issues? Headlights, blower, wipers?
Its quite possibly the ignition switch. Just had to replace it on my daughter's 97 jetta. She had first the blinkers behaving erratically, then it was random electrical issues after that. At first we were sure it was in the combination switch, or the arms off the steering column that operate the blinkers, wipers etc. Unfortunately, that change didn't fix it. After a bit more research I learned the ignition switch on these creates these symptoms. Changing the switch wasn't very difficult with a diagram and a bit of experience and the part was only about 30.00.
Hope I've helped -Good luck!

As far as the windshield wipers go sounds like theres a bad connection in the arm that controls your blinker and wipers you might try replacing that.
I had the same problem in my 93 linc.

Wipers wont work


1.  Turn on your wipers and pop your hood.   2.  If you hear you wiper motor, then you do not need to check your fuses. 3.  If your wiper arms are moving freely, then your linkage from the wiper arms to the motor is disconnected and possibly broken.   4.  If the problem is electrical, do the following:      1.  Check the fuse, and check for power at the fuse.      2.  Check the wiper motor for ground. For a complete circuit, you need power going in and ground               coming out.  Check electrical connections for corrosion or poor connections.       3.  Get a wiring schematic and trace power to the wiper motor starting at the fuse box in the                       following order:           Fuse box           wiper switch           wiper motor      4.  In the rarest of cases a wiper motor or wiper switch is at fault.  I do not recommend replacing                 anything unless you have proof that the part is faulty. (ie. power going into the switch but nothing           coming out.)
