If you find that the wipers aren't working, leave them on with the key on. Wiggle the end of a wiper blade or push it with a stick. If the wipers suddenly come on, even just for an instant, the printed circuit board in the wiper motor has lost its ground. Getting to the wiper motor is no fun, but when you gain access to the plastic cover that shields the electronic board examine the solder connections on the perimeter of the board. Lugs penetrate the board from the wiper motor assembly and serve as ground (negative) for the control board. If you look really close at the solder connections you will see where they broke. Solder these and bridge this problem joint with copper wire.

Check for electrical plugs going to the wiper motor, unplug it and plug it in a few times to sorta clean the connection tabs inside . they get water and dirt inside and it makes a bad connection. if the problem persists it could be a bad switch in the car, and maybe even a bad wiper motor

My windsheild wiper motor sometimes stops mid way through the stroke and sometimes it doesn't work at all. If you leave on though it will eventually work but after a few minutes it starts to stop mid way...


It sounds like you have a faulty switch. I would recommend that you change the wiper control switch. In order to do this, yoyu will need to remove the steering column cover, and the steering wheel. Remember to disconnect the battery when you are performing any work in a car that has a SRS-safety restraint system.

THE WINDSHEILD WIPERS DON'T SHUT OFF


The park switch is built into the motor. YOu need a new motor. Find an independent shop and have them replace with a rebuilt or new aftermarket unit instead of a dealer unit. The labor guide shows 1.4 hours to replace the motor

If your car is under 36000 miles take it to your dealer and have it fixed under your warrenty. All of your interior electrical systems are controled by computors and sometime not a simple repair ! The dealer has the tools to monitor different switch states to aid in isolating the problem. Just guessing if its a switch or a computor or a wiring issue can get very costly.

hi the contacts in the switch would appear to be faulty if you can get to the switch try spraying the switch with wd40 or simular as if you can spray the contacts it may clean them if you want abit more positive diagnostic while wipers are working disconnect the wires from the switch when they won,t turn off if they continue to work check out the relay yates210456
