My wipers just quit working, fuses ok....any thoughts?


Dead wiper motor. Or very bad wire connection. Or possibly bad relay after fuse, and before wiper motor. You can test motor by a direct jumper from positive to the motor's positive terminal.

Hi there,

There are two fuse panels in your BMW - in the engine compartment and the luggage compartment. I believe your wiper fuse is in the engine panel one. Should be on the left side of the compartment. When you open it, you should find the map of the fuses - identify your wiper fuse, then pull the fuse using the pliers included to check for integrity. Test the fuse, and replace if necessary.

If the fuse is fine, and you test the terminals of the fuse receiver to be okay (turn on the wipers and test amperage across the terminals. If there's current, and they wipers are still not working, pull the wiper pivot arms. These should move very freely; over time some of these can seize up which will require replacement.

As a thought, the 7 Series as a rain sensor automatic control function. When on, the wipers are controlled by the sensor. If this feature is on, and your sensor itself is malfunctioning, it may be preventing your manual control of the wipers. Try turning off the sensor to see if you regain control.


Good luck.

Wipers stopped working, not a fuse


Your wiper motor or wiper transmission may be bad. If you can hear the wiper motor running, but the wipers don't move, your wiper transmission is bad. If you can't hear the wiioper motor, and you're sure all fuses are good and all contacts are solid, your wiper motor is toast.

Took our 2001 Caravan SE to local mechanic because rear wiper quit working. They diagosed proble as faulty PCM. Thought they were doing us a favour by putting in a used one from a 2002 that they thought...


i dont see why they would diag the pcm for the rear wiper, power from fuse to switch to wiper!! no pcm in between this operation. I would have had this fixed in a hour. Have mechanic pay for the bill to get it running. It was running fine when you took it there and only the rear wiper didnt work and now you are out of a vehicle and a tow bill at a hourly dealer cost. Best of luck to you 300.00 later.

2004 AUDI A4 WINDSHIELD WASHER DOEN'T PUMP WATER. THE MANUAL SAID THERE IS 1 FUSE FOR THE WIPER SYSTEM BUT WIPERS MOVE.


Just saw your post as I was having the same problem. The fuse that you need to look at is #37. I changed that fuse and everything was all good. Apparently the headlight washer pop-ups can freeze up in cold weather and blow the fuse.

Fuel gauge, temp gauge, and auto door locks stopped working while in transit. checked obvious fuses, found no problems. did not check all fuses. Ideas


I had a similar problem with a 2001 Saturn. We checked every fuse and they were all fine. We finally did a 'reset' on the car's computer by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it a few minutes later. Everything was back to normal after that.
