Most likely it is wiring, i recommend going to your local auto shop and have it fixed. DON'T try to do it yourself it can get tricky!

2005 audi s4 - windshield wipers stopped working / ceased up. Will go up approx half way, then EXTREMELY slowly continue up then down (approx 20 mins for one cycle). Is this the linkage or another issue?


First time 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.

Sometime will not start when it hot. First it start rough. stop in about 5 seconds , will not start .. . wait 5 mins to 90 mins , doing that period it turn over but it will not run when it start ok turn...


Whenever you state a starting problem you should always give the last time you had a tuneup and what was done. In fact you should give information about any work previously done.

Rear wiper and washer of BMW 5 E39 not working


I had the same problem. I thought it was an issue with a blown fuse, but also noticed that the rear wiper was very stiff.
I solved it by opening the rear window (so the wiper is not clicked into the motor) then squirt some WD40 into the wiper mechanism (I put the oil in from the outside). Gently move the wiper from side to side until it starts to free up - after a couple of movements the wiper should be moving freely again. No issues since.

At the same time, check that the washer jet is correctly angled. Mine was squirting directly into the wiper which may have caused it to rust up a bit.

How to realign wipers after replacing wiper motor


sHUT WIPERS OFF AND ALLOW THEM TO PARK

















Shut wipers off & allow them to stop in what should be park position. Now lift caps at pivots, loosen nuts, lift arm slightly and move it to bottom of windsheild, where you feel it was before when off. Now tighten nuts (snug) and do same to other arm. Now turn them on,let them wipe a couple of times then shut off again and see where they stop, if good snug up nuts, snap cap back over & done, if not, repeat as above on movement where you want it.

Front wipers on my 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport stop mid-cycle


A couple things could be but not limited to - weak motor, wiper transmission needs lubricant, worn out bushings or bearings for wiper arm causing added friction. You might take to a GM Dealer to see if there is a bulletin or notice about the wipers.
