Motor starts and idles ok but dosent respond to throttle.

It's possible your control "computer" had a glitch. If it happens again, or if you're just curious, have a diagnostics check. A simple check is free at many auto parts stores. I hope this is helpful.

My wipers wont switch off on my v70..will increase speed via stalk but wont this a relay or a new stalk

I would check the relay by pulling it and swapping another in it's place but it is probably an issue with the stalk

Toyota Camry intermittent windscreen wipers stopped working. Then all of the windscreen wipers stopped working. The fuse is OK. Model SXV10R. January 1996

this could be caused by a bad whiper motor or a bad whiper motor switch. check for voltage at the whiper motor itself, if you do have voltage at the motor then the motor is bad.

My 2004 audi a4 windscreen wipers move across the windscreen very slowly then stop.they will then start up again and move slowly.sometimes they dont start first time and when they do their is only 1 speed-...

First you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows: 1. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!! 2. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen. 3. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. It is necessary to unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and disconnect the electrical coupling (difficult assurance). If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6, 7. If not you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and electric cables. 4. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand. In the most cases the left bearing is out of order (is very hot). This is the most encounter fault of the wipers running at Audi. 5. For have enough space to manipulation the wiper motor together with their mechanism you must extract the plastic cover of the engine computer box, and extract also the box screws. Then you can move slowly the engine computer box, just for a few milimeters. 6. You must disconnect the electrical coupling of the motor (difficult assurance), unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and extract together with the motor. You must move them slowly between windscreen and engine computer box until the wiper motor go out together with the mechanism. This is the most difficult operation! 7. Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. It is not very simply, but it works.
Heed of the windscreen !!!
Refit all in reverse order.

Front windscreen wipers have stopped working

Firstly check the fuses, if they are ok and you can here noise it will most likely be the linkage has popped apart, if no noise when on then check the switch.

*If you had cold weather when this happened, it is common for the motor to strain and blow the fuse*

Heater blower stopped working. I checked the fuses and they are ok. It never gave me any problems before. It just quit.

Sometimes blower motors quit without warning and sometimes they make noise and last for years

Heater won't warm up - no pressure from blower. Warms slightly when on windscreen but then cold when control changed to heat inside car. Had new radiator last year - seems ok but I do have to top up water...

You're losing coolant. You're not supposed to. could be a leak could be a head gasket. Head gasket=very expensive. Leak=hard to find.
No pressure from blower.....means air pressure or flow? Replace the control resistor for the blower motor. When it goes the motor only operates on high. If the motor doesn't operate on high, replace the blower motor.
Move to Fla, Houston, So Cal or Ariz for an ultimate fix of the problem.
