It is possible that the motor has failed or the nylon gears or the worm drive has worn out. You will need to open out the wiper motor assembly after confirming that the fuse is intact. next checck if the motor is workingg if not you will have to replace or repair by rewinding if it is only cost effective. Open the drive unit and you will find a spiral worm wheel that connects to the reciprocating action as a crank .You will notice if the gear is broken or damaged wherein you need to replace it if the part is available seperately than the whole assembly. or else you must try for the salvaged part. Hope you try this out. Good day

How do i find the right fuse that is connected to windshield wipers 2001 isuzu rodeo?


If they try to move the fuse is not the issue, You need to check the linkages, they are under the panel where the wiper spindles sit, the plastic ends can break and stop them working.

The windshield wipers wont go back into position


Hyundai uses plastic washers in their windshield wipers to prevent wiper transmission damage due to excessive force ie trying to use them when they are stuck to the windshield. There's a small hinged "cap" at the base of each wiper. Flip the cap up and using a pair of pliers, tighten down the bolts. Be careful not to overtighten them or risk doing damage to the washers. If this doesn't solve your problem, you may need to replace the washers beneath the nut that connects to the wiper transmission.

The windshield wipers are stuck vertically and now


This sounds like the wiper motor has failed. You can pick one up at the local parts store. If not mechnically savvy, I would recommend taking to shop for working in tight areas that these can be. But, otherwise, the motor is on the fire wall, unplug, remove screws(4), exchange with new, and reassemble as removed. I hope this helps.
