Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
The wiper motor or the connector for the wiper motor has a problem. Corrosion in the connector(s) (if there is a separate wiper control module) can cause this. Also the slip ring inside the wiper motor itself has 3 brushes on it. If one of the brushes has failed you will get the same symptom you describe. Lastly... a failed wiper switch in the steering column can cause the problem.
Check the wiper connectors for corrosion. As far as the wiper motor... I have had very little success with the brushes except on the models that have a changeable brush block. (auto salvage at 50% of the cost of a new wiper motor) Most of the time it requires replacement of the wiper motor assy.
Thanks for using FixYa.
