I have a 1996 honda accord and my wipers will not work how do i know if its the wiper motor or not?


To check the fuse is always a good start. But also ,with the engine not running and the Key in the on position, turn the wipers on and listen for the wiper moter. You may hear the wiper motor running but the wipers not working ,they could have come disconnected at the motor or in the linkage. Physically move the wipers, if they move freely with no resistants, that would indicate a disconnection in the linkage or at the motor, in my opinion.

2000 Hyundia Elantra Windshield wipers stuck in up position. Is it a Fuse or the Motor?


Turn on key & wipers--try to move wiper arms--not real hard--may break something--sometimes wipers will start moving.Next--have motor tested--then check for fuse, fusible link, or circuit breaker--depends on make of car. If fuse--replace--if other take to qualified mechanic.

The driver side wiper doesn't move


will try to assist. when your wipers 'on' can you see looking from outside of car at the driverside wiper,is anything moving?look really close at the wiper at bottom near the wind sheild? is anything moving?do you see the wiper trying to turn?but just does'nt grab? if you see the knob turning,but the wiper not moving,maybe the wipers not pushed down onto the gear properly. try with wipers on,push the wiper arm down,or towards windsheild. does it move then? do you see the wiper gear moving at all? wiggle the arm,does it move on it's own? if so, you need the wipers adjusted.[autozone,advance auto parts] for free. if the wiper on drivers side,the gear that drives the wipers[little round] thing that wiper arm at the bottom of winsheild does'nt turn at all, the wiper arm under the dash in disconnected. this means that the panel outside where the wipers are will need to come off and the wiper arm will need to be reconnected to the wiper motor.there is a reason the wiper arm came off in the 1st place so that will need to be dealt with. it may be a faulty keeper pin,or a faulty carter key that holds the wiper assembly to the wiper motor.i really hope that this assists you,let me know please! and if you need further assistance,please repost your questions to fixya.com!

My rear wiper is pulsating but not moving


try to inject a WD40 into the mechanism (shaft/bearing assembly) and gently move the wiper to rotate the shaft a little, there should be enough play to do this. Extend the wiper from the window pane and let it extended. Turn the contact key on. Go back to the wiper and "help" it rotate. It will start to rotate with difficulty at first, then freely.

You may have to do this once a year before winter. If this does not work, check the fuse and replace it if needed, then go back to step one

Drivers side windshield wiper went past the window. Now it doesn't move at all. the wiper also can be moved by hand with the motor off.


The base nut needs to be tightned, with the key on and wipers off, now turn key off and position wiper in the park position (down) then tight the nut,remove the cover at the bottom of the arm to see nut,75c3630.gif

My front wipers do not work, the washer on the front and the rear wiper works fine, they are all on the same thing


HI. This is a possible motor issue. To confirm, use this procedure. it will help isolate the actual issue at hand.

1.Make sure the battery has a strong charge and is in good condition. Use a voltmeter to get a reading if necessary.

2.Connect a jumper wire between ground and the wiper motor. Turn the key on but don’t start the engine. Turn the wiper switch on. If the motor works, check for a corroded or loose ground connection.

3.Turn on the car key but don’t start the engine. Turn on the wipers. Check for voltage at the wiper motor with your voltmeter. If you get a good voltage reading, turn the key off and disconnect the motor from the wiper linkage.

4.Move the wiper arms by hand. If they are stuck, you have found the problem. If the wiper arms move freely by hand, go to step 5. If voltage is not reaching the motor go to step 6.

5.Remove the wiper motor by disconnecting the plug and removing the bolts using a wrench or ratchet. Use a pair of jumper wires to connect the wiper motor directly to the battery. If the motor does not work, replace it.

6.Turn on the key but don’t start the engine. Get a voltage reading across the wiper switch. If there is voltage, use a jumper wire to bypass the switch, if the motor works now, replace the switch, otherwise go to step 7. If there is no voltage at the switch, go to step 8.

7.Check for continuity at the wire between the switch and the motor. The wire could be loose or disconnected.


8.Check the wire coming from the fuse panel to the wiper switch. It could be disconnected or loose.

98 Contour, starter ticks like dead battery and wipers cycle a couple of times when I turn the key to start. Wiper switch is in the off position, battery is fully charged. I would think possible starter...


If you turn the key and you hear a click and the motor is not moving your starter is probably bad. Everything can work on your car and the starter can be bad all by itself.
Check and see if your wiper is inthe correct position,sometimes we accidently move it without knowing.
