Sounds like they just need to be tightened up but if this doesnt fix it, they may be stripped on the drive motor shaft.

I have a 1993 Voyager van. the front wipers stopped. I replaced the motor and the linkage bushings. There seems to be no power. the wipers move freely when no connected to motor. I do not hear any...

it would be the relay. don't know this model well but it is usually behind the fuse box. it is a speed control relay with timer in it. intermittent control and speed 1-3. or 4 on some models. when pipers working should hear it clicking on intermittent setting on wiper.

The windshield wipers on my 1988 F-150 stopped working. When you turn them on, the battery indicator jumps around like it's sucking power, but it seems to be jammed or something. any ideas? Thanks, Ed

suspect short circuit in wiper motor may need replacement
suspect motor has come away from wiper mechanism so it is turning but not driving the wiper arms as it has become disconnected.

I am needing to replace the coil pack on my 2002 Ford Windstar 3.8L. It's in a spot that is not easily accesible. I'm wondering if anyone has any tips/tricks to doing a replacement.

I just did the job yesterday.
1. Remove the windshield wipers.
2. Disconnect hose to wiper fluid nozzles under cowling.
3. Disconnect power to wiper motors at drivers side motor.
4. Disconnect fluid hose near cowling above passenger tire.
5. Unbolt the metal cowling from the vehicle & remove it.
6. Now you can easily access the coil pack - takes 3 screws.
7. Replace items in reverse order.
