Wiper relay. Please help! I have a 1988 3 door corolla hatch and am having great difficulty finding the relay for my wipers. The rear wiper has randomly started running non-stop and when you press the button to spray the rear widow it now sprays the front windscreen. I assume this is the likely cause?? Either way I just can't find the relay to test it despite half stripping the car. I hope it's just in one of those easily located spots and I just missed it!!

SOURCE: horn plus rear windscreen wiper not working

i presume you mean wiper water pump... first locate the relays for the horn and rear wiper and replace them... usually found in the fuse panel under the dash... then fill up the rear water resevoir for the back wiper and try it again.

I had this problem too, you have to take the back hatch panel off and reconect the hoses. the hoses are about as big as a drinking straw. it's not hard, but is time consuming.

SOURCE: location of front wiper motor relay and code

The rear wiper is on "off" position when you pull the "stick".
The relays are under the steering wheel. if you bend yourself down to the pedals, look up, ant there is a litle door, fixed with some nuts. remove them, pull the plastic just to look inside, and you'll see the relays. the relay that control the wiper system is the bigger one. is one relay for front and back. You could open it and you'll see two electromagnets which controls some contacts. you could try clean them with a soft and clean cloth(tissue). Also check the fuses. The fuses are located on the side panel trim from the driver's door. The fuses for front and back wiper sistem are separated. On the back of the panel from the fuses you'll see a diagram with what each fuse does.Good luck.

Rear wiper, rear defroster & rear wiper fluid all stopped working at the same time. bought a new rear wiper motor installed it and nothing... anyone having or had the same problem in the past?


Check fuse panel ...if fuses for those rear devices are OK look at the wiring at the rear hatch. Possibly inside that door, or a ground condition that is not functioning or disconnected connector related to electrical devices in the rear hatch door.
Good luck!

Rear wiper just stop in the middle. It looks as if the motor has no power.


It will surely be the rear wiper motor that failed. The hatch panels can be removed, lift the hatch. You'll find a torx screw where the pull handle is, remove. Pull down the lower portion of the panel, the upper is also held on by push clips, just pull it away. Lower hatch, remove wiper arm cap, and nut holding wiper arm on. take off the large nut off at the base of the wiper shaft. raise hatch, remove elctrical connector, and 3 10mm bolts holding wiper motor and bracket. Replaced and reverse procedure.

As far as the hatch and the wiper in the rear: 1 common problem is the wiring at the top at the hatch. Due to the poor wiring layout here, this flexes quite a bit with opening and closing the hatch. These wires will tend to rub against the metal and short out. Check this out first, it's a cheap fix.

Rear wiper inoperative. How to diagnose?


try slowly opening and closing the rear hatch-door with the wiper switch on and see if wiper trie to operate.I had an intermittent problem with no sound coming from any speakers,but I could see from the radio display that the station and song were being displayed,by chance Iopened the rear hatch and the sound came blaring out of all the speakers.Turns out there is an electrical cable that comes from the roof area into the center of the rear hatch(between the hinges) and from flexing as the hatch opens and closes several wires broke and would intermittently make up and sometimes go open again.Took vehicleto dealership and the fixed and or replaced that part of the wiring harness,claiming they had not seen that problem before,seems hard to believe,as no doubt all of these models had the same wiring harness.--Good luck

Rear windshield wiper connection


You need to open the rear glass from the rear hatch. Look inside where the glass latches to the rear hatch. There is a Phillips head screw that connects the rear inner plastic panel to the rear hatch, remove this screw. Now, in the strap that you use to pull the rear hatch down, there is a torques head screw, that holds this strap to the rear hatch, you need to remove this screw.
Start at one of the outer corners of the inner plastic panel and pull the panel away from the hatch. You will see the upper wiper motor in the right hand corner of the hatch. ther is one connector that is easy to see, you have to pull up on a plastic clip to remove this connector. Look for the rubber hose for the windshield washer fluid, it may be cracked or fallen off the plastic nozzle to the outside of the rear door.

Please the hose back on or replace the hose if it's cracked or damaged by the wiper motor. To install just follow the procedure in revers.
Good luck and hope i made some sense. Keep me posted, be glad to help out.

Rear wiper will not work


There are no relays in the back door that i know of, however it sounds like the gearbox in the wiper motor has broken. if there is power to the plug and a good earth, then its got to be the motor. just one thing to check.. make sure the wiper arm is tight on the spindle. I have seen them come loose and give the impression the motor isnt working, could also explain clicking noise.
