You need to hook power directly up to the motor to see if it is in fact working. also check to make sure that none of the linkage is binding or broken.

I think the multi-function switch is bad on my 2005 Ford Taurus SE.The windshield wipers are functioning continuously.The fuse box is located under my hood. Which fuse can I pull to "kill" the wipers?


open the bonnet open the black fuse and relay plastic box. Listen for the relay kicking in or you may be able to feel the relay or look on the cover for the relay location. Pull out the relay .
I have a faulty headlight switch myself and had to hard wire my head lights on with a jump wire. The relay is in my pocket until I can get a new headlight indicator stalk. You may be able to jump wire the wipers with spade connectors to work with a jump wire in case you need wipers until you can replace the wiper stalk .
It could be a stuck relay causing the fault rather than the switch. you need to check if switch causes voltage to turn off accross the relay coil in the relay mount block.

Wipers front and rear not working and screen wash


Hi

Sounds like an earthing problem if you have already checked the relay and fuses. although if they are both controlled by the same stick on the steering wheel it may be lose or have packed up completely. Like you say its strange both are not working.

Start at the route of the wiring to the wipers and trace it all the way until you find the fault if its not the stalk!

hope this helps

98 ford windstar. power windows, windshield wipers,willnot work,.


This sound like some type of relay switch failure in the fuse box, you need check all the fuses and see if they're all intact and make sure none of them are burned out. If all these are not working you have a live wire some where in you wire harness

Wipers do not work, blows every new fuse, replaced wiper motor, with the same result, what else could I try? Could it be a switch problem?


Wiper not work
Sounds like a live wire short. Check all cabling from fuse, motor and switch.look for open or damaged cable insulation.
Remove wire harnass from switch and motor and see if fuse still blows, then definite short. if not connect switch only and see if fuse is still intact if so connect wiper motor

Most probably it is a relay problem. First check from car manual which relay is commanding to your wipers, blower etc... Then you or your service have to replace it.

I'v lost all side lights (including dashboard),but still have headlights/fog/Brake/ ect... checked the fuses all OK, Is there a relay aswl a the fuse? If so, is it in the fusebox, of inline somewhere?...


fuse boxes tent to go faulty on escorts. try manually providing a 12v feed to the dip beam fuse in the fuse box. if the fuse box is faulty then it shuold light up the headlights. columb stalks are also very common on the ford also.

Lights and central locking fault


this is a similar problem to the one i had, it sounds like the fuse box may be breaking down one by one, usually means a replacement fuse box

Ford escort van


FOR THE DASH LIGHTS, FIRST CHECK YOUR FUSES, IF NOT ITS PROBABLY THE STALK ITSELF, COMMON FAULT ON THESE.
FOR THE GRINDING CHECK THE WHEEL BEARINGS, AND BRAKES
