There is a motor above the firewall in the engine compartment.(Not easy to get at). To that motor there is a gear that attaches the motor to the wiper arms. Tighten that connection. You may want to try to turn the wipers on then off. Thiss will put the blades in what it thinks is the rest position. Other wise they may be out of wack. So with the wipers off loosen the drive gear force the wipers down all the way and then tighten.

Good luck.

After a brief snow and freeze, my wipers stopped working. I left the wiper switch on when I turned off the car. Next day, after scraping the ice and snow, I started the car, the wipers wanted to mov


The wipers lost their index... Turn the car on, turn the wipers on, shut the car off when the wipers reach their full down position. Turn the wipers off, the. Turn the car back on. This should relearn the wiper index.

2010 Lexus ES 350 WINDSHIELD has suddenly stopped moving, the motor make noise , the windshield not moving , what could be the cause and solution


It is either time to replace the wiper motor or the arm has disengaged from the transmission. does the motor make any sounds when the wiper switch is activated? Also, does one work and not the other? If neither wiper moves or makes the usual noises i would suspect the switch inside the car. hope this helps and good luck.

Wipers stop in the middle of my wishield,will not park properly


Sorry , no adjustment .
Wiper/Washer System Components
The Wiper / Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper / washer switch
• Windshield wiper system module / motor
• Windshield washer fluid pump
• Windshield washer fluid level switch
• WPR 25A fuse
Wiper / Washer System Operation
The windshield wiper motor module is part of the windshield wiper motor cover and controls the wiper motor operation. The windshield wiper motor is a 2 speed motor. Windshield wiper DELAY operation is a low speed wiper motor function with a variable delay interval between the wipe cycles. The DELAY interval is controlled through a series of resistors within the wiper / washer switch.
Park Position Operation
When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

Wiper blade on my 98 C230 goes a quarter of the way up then stops and makes clicking noise for about 10 seconds. When I move it by hand it will go back into start position. Should I still try the lube...


sounds like the gears inside of the wiper mechanism have gone bad. there is a strip of gears in the shape of a half moon that the wiper motor rides on in order to move the wiper blade back and forth. When those gears strip out the wiper will only move a certain distance and then stop. One way to tell is if you can move the wiper arm by hand. When the gears are good the wiper arm should not move at all by hand.

Windshield Wiper Motor could be causing starting and stopping where it feels like: REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: Remove the water shield fasteners 91226p14.jpg
Fig. 2: Using a suitable pry tool, lift up the base of the clip while turning the head 91226p13.jpg
Fig. 3: View of water shield retaining clip 91226p15.jpg
Fig. 4: Removal of the water shield weather stripping 91226p16.jpg
Fig. 5: Pull away the water shield 91226p45.jpg
Fig. 6: Remove any dirt and debris from the under the water shield at this time 91226p43.jpg
Fig. 7: Detach the wiper motor wiring harness 91226p48.jpg
Fig. 8: Removing the wiper motor and linkage assembly 91226p39.jpg
Fig. 9: Remove the screws from the wiper motor assembly 91226p40.jpg
When removing the wiper motor, leave the mounting frame in place. If possible, do not remove the wiper drive crank from the motor shaft.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the water shield at the base of the windshield.
  2. Disconnect the relay rods from the wiper motor.
  3. Note the position of the crank arm on the shaft. When the motor is in the parked position, the arm should be about 4 degrees up from horizontal.
  4. Disconnect the wiring and remove the bolts to remove the motor from the frame. To install:
  5. Temporarily connect the wiring and run the motor. When the wiper switch is turned OFF, the motor will stop in the parked position.
  6. Install the motor and connect the linkage.
  7. Run the motor again and make sure the arms and blades are properly positioned when the motor stops.

After looking at the schematics, I couldn't determine which subsystem may be causing your problem with the headlights. There is a daytime running lamps subsystem, but I am not sure if that's causing the problem. There are fuses involved but not sure if that's the problem.

There's a solid state headlight switch, but I'm not sure if that's a problem.

On the headlight issue, if it doesn't come back, just consider it a bug or glitch.

Have you had a battery changed on it recently?
