Intermittent wiper control stopped working on my 1996 GM last spring. I ended up replacing the wiper motor ($100.00 part). Since I have found it on Amazon for $58 including shipping. It works fine now. Only bad part was all the "stuff" that has to come out (like dead leaves!) to get to the wiper motor. Also make sure you have your wipers in the down position when you replace the motor.

My 2010 grand marquis wipers stopped working on high now they are coming on while in the off position. What could be wrong?


Could be the wiper switch. There are few components in the system. The wiper switch is rarely disassembled to repair, it is meant to be replaced.

The wiper motor would usually fail differently. Not shutting off (called parking) is a motor problem. But not engaging high speed is usually a switch problem. It sounds like the switch is a notch off inside and is not touching to cycle off.

There may be some you tube videos which show better details than just texting about this.

What part do I need & how do I fix?


I have a 95 grand marquis and i had the same problem. I fixed mine myself by replacing the wiper motor. The problem was the motor will still work on high but not low. Its an enternal issue on the motor that wont allow it to fully rotate when shut off and its not accepting the low voltage to run on low. My answer is 100% accurate

1996 Mercury Grand Marquis wipers don't work. I changed the motor and the fuse isn't blown


You need to take the plastic cowls off that cover the wiper arm linkage and wiper transmission to inspect it...cowl is held on with 3 Phillips screws near windshield and some one inch wide metal clips, take off the gasket that fits on top. If both are not working check the transmission where linkages attach, if one wiper blade is not working it is usually the drivers side where the nylon bushing that forns a ball/socket sort of connection fails due to build up of debris and the rusting of parts that follows, let me know if this helps.

2001 grand marquis windshield wipers runs in high nothin else wont go in park either


If you are having problems with the wipers not wanting to park, that is usually the park switch inside the wiper motor. The low and interm speed settings could be the delay module which could also affect park.
You may need a shop manual to troubleshoot the circuits.

We have the same problem on our 97 Grand Marquis. We have replaced the wiper blades and the drivers wiper arm with a used one. The problem was not completely solved but it did work better. We are going to replace the arm with a new one and see if that works better.

Wiper only works on high replace switch did not work stil the same its 05 grand marque


It has to be the wiper motor ....first make sure the wires that plug into the connector that plugs into the switch are not loose and have a good tight connection...I know that while moving the connector around when installing a new switch wires can become loose or slightly pulled out of the connector....it only takes one wire to pull loose ...but the wiper motor will cause the same problem....CALL DEALER TO MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO RECALLS OR TECH SERVICE BULLITENS ON WIPER MOTORS FOR YOUR VIN #...sometimes this will happen and everyone isnt notified
