Remove the nuts on the wiper arms ... They may be under a cap ... but are always located at the center of the bottom of the arm...
Turn the wipers on (with arms off) and then turn them off again...
When the wiper transmission has stopped and is at rest ... place the wiper arm on in a possition close to the bottom of the windscreen and lightly tighten the nuts back up...
Test to be sure they are where you want them... being sure they are not resting on the windscreen trim... and tighten and recap the nuts...
Easy Fix Ya !

I replacsed th wiper transmission and now the wiper fuse keeps blowing I did not work on any thing but that

Does the fuse blow when the wipers are off or when you turn the wipers on? A fuse blowing means either a short circuit or an overload. Lets say that your wiper transmission is new and working properly, then an overload is probably blowing the fuse which is caused by the circuit pulling to much current because something is not aligned correctly and moving freely when the wiper motor is turned on. Before you connect the arms to the transmission, move the arm assembly manually with your hand to make sure the wipers go across and back on the windshield. This will verify that the arm assembly is moving freely and not jamming. Then turn the wiper transmission without connecting the wiper arms and see if the transmission is working properly and not blowing the fuse. This will verify that your wiper transmission is not defective. Check the wiring going to the wiper transmission for any bare spots or nicks on the wire insulation. If you have a bare spot or nick that is touching metal, the fuse will blow (this is called a short circuit). If you find a bare spot or nick on the wire use electrician tape to insulate the bare spot or nick. Usually three wraps of electrician tape around the bare spotor nick will do the job. Oh, make sure to replace the fuse with the correct amp fuse. Your car dealer auto parts can provide the information (over the phone) on the correct amp size. You can purchase the fuse at any auto parts. FYI: Too small an amp on the fuse will blow when the wiper is turned on. Too large of a fuse will cause the wiring to burn if your wipers should stop shifting and jam. Good Luck. Hope this helps.

You will need to find where in the linkage the problem is. I would start taking it apart to see what is and what isn't working correctly. Autozone website has free repair manuals available online.

Rear window wiper not working in 97 hyundai coupe

Remove the rear hatch door inner skin and check for power there.
If you have power, then the rear wiper motor has failed.
If no power, then check the rear wiper switch for power and operation.

My windsheild wipers keep getting stuck in the middle position when i turn them off

When a wiper motor does this it usually needs to be replaced. The Park circuit is not working. You may be able to see a ground wire on the motor beneath one of the mounting bolts. If you do find a wire, try cleaning the connection and bolting it down again and it may work.

There are contact points inside the case which are suppose to derail the wiper gear and put the wiper on a shut-off cam. When the cam finds the ground wire it parks the blades at the correct spot. In your case the motor is not finding the correct spot. Cleaning the ground wire may help.

Depending on the construction of the motor casing, you may be able to WD40 the inside of the gearbox. It may or may not help.

I hope you found my solution informative and helpful.

1996 dodge caravan wipers do not turn off at times and do not stop at park at times.Have changed body computer and multi function switch ,cleaned all grounds and problem still there.What is next move for...

Remove the wiper arms. That is the portion that is visible above the bodywork. It is held in place by one nut on the arm itself but hidden below a cover that you will have to flip up. Once removed operate the wipers and see if the problem persists. If it does not then the wiper arms were misaligned. Once switched off the wipers arms and blades can be refitted. If this does not cure the problem then the wiper motor needs to be replaced. It has electrical contacts inside the gearbox of the wiper motor that regulate the stop positionand these may have been damaged. Your chances at succes in repairing are slim, but it wont hurt to open the unit and check for a shortcircuit or a loose piece of metal inside the gearbox. (The wiper gearbox is that round part of the wiper motor that the wiper drive shaft protrudes from. The cylindrical part is the motor itself) They are not very complex and a short is easily spotted.

If I take out all the fuses in the box and replace them with new ones will it interfer with the functions in the SUV? I want to make sure to replace the right one for the wipers.


There will be a map of all the fuses in the vehicle normally on the fuse box cover I would not reccommend just pulling random fuses out for the hell of it, it is critical that the correct amp fuse goes in the correct spot otherwise you will burn out wires in your vehicle...

You should be able to follow the map and track down the correct fuse for the wipers just make sure one the same size goes back in...

Hope this helps:)

Windshield wipers stopping or not working at all

This reply probably too late but -
 Is this a wiper motor problem?
The motor may be OK but the parking switch has likely failed.  It should normally supply power until they reach their parking spot unless the main operator switch is still on and this probably controls a relay that may be faulty.
If you have had the problem corrected, you might post the problem found back here as a comment to aid others.
