Fix 2005 tahoe rear wiper (other year GM SUVs may also apply)


My 2005 tahoe rear wiper was inop. The symptom was a pulsating buzz coming from the wiper motor, but no wiping action. I mistakenly bought a new wiper motor, which was not the cause. It was a bad ground, so instead of hunting the bad ground, I just added another grounding wire to the motor. Maybe my experience can help you. Make sure ignition is off and wiper is off. (As an added safety precaution disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent unexpected wiper action). To get access to wiper motor, open rear window glass to remove upper window trim surround. On either side of the window latch there are two black flat plastic "buttons". Release these by pushing from behind with a flat blade screw driver to pop out the center pin. With the pin extended the whole button can be pulled out. Open the tail gate and gently pry under the upper window trim to release clips from underneath. Remove upper window trim. Now to remove lower tailgate panel, remove bolt holding the pull strap. remove pull strap. As before gently pry lower panel to release clips from underneath. When all are loose, lift panel vertically to remove, by releasing the two "fingers" that fit into slots. Now that the motor is exposed, cut a short length of insulated stranded wire (like lamp wire) and crimp-on some terminal ends(just the stripped bare wire ends will also work). Attach from under a wiper motor frame mounting bolt (do not use either of the rubber insulated bolts) to under a mounting bolt on the window glass latch assy. Or you can also select any motor grounding point to any vehicle chassis grounding point as desired. Op test the wiper. Note: The window glass and tailgate will have to be closed to test. Hopefully it works properly. Put everything back in reverse order. Remember to slide fingers of lower panel into their slots before pushing clips secure. Also after remounting upper glass trim, fully insert the two plastic latch buttons with center pins extended, and then push in center pins.

2004 gmc envoy window won't go up rear wiper obstruction


I know this question is old, but I am responding so others with the same problem can see. I wired the Rear Window Motor Park Signal wire and the Rear Window Motor Speed Signal wire together and it completely bypassed the rear wiper motor. Now the window goes up and down. This doesn't fix the rear wiper motor, but you will be able to have access to it now that the window is out of the way

I made and album to show.

Rear wipers and defroster don't work . fuses maybe ?


Check all of your fuses and don't forget to check the ones in the engine bay also. If those are fine then you have to remove the switch and verify that it's getting a 12V power feed. If that works then the switch should but you'll want to test a good with it too.

If the switch checks out then you'll want to test the wiper motor.


The defroster is another animal though. If there's a break in the wiring leading to the window itself then they'll need to be replaced. If the connector popped off or if there's a broken trace in the window that can be fixed but ONLY BY A PROFESSIONAL.

The reason I say that is because if you try to solder any of those parts on to the window (which is tempered glass by the way) the glass could crack or break.

In the end, it would be easier just to replace it.

I haven't tested one yet but I'm going to guess that you may need to remove the tailgate liner and have the tailgate shut when you flip the switch and test with a voltmeter or test light.

If that detects power then the wiring is fine and the easy-ish part will be to replace the wiper motor.

02 liberty rear wiper dose not work plugin has power changed wiper motor still doses work


There is a nut under the black plastic bezel that needs to be removed. Here is the complete procedure for you to look at. Its possible that your arm isn't adjust at wiper motor...

REMOVAL
- Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
- Remove the rear wiper arm from the rear wiper motor output shaft. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL / REAR WIPERS / WASHERS/REAR WIPER ARM - REMOVAL).
- Using a small thin-bladed tool, gently pry at the notch in the base of the rear wiper motor output shaft bezel to unsnap the nut cover from the bezel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL). Be certain to take proper precautions to protect the outer tailgate panel and its paint finish from damage during this procedure.
- Remove the nut that secures the rear wiper motor output shaft to the outer swing gate panel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Remove the bezel and gasket from the rear wiper motor output shaft.
- Remove the trim panel from the tailgate inner panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/SWING GATE/TRIM PANEL - REMOVAL).
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the flip-up glass ajar switch from the flip-up glass latch connector receptacle.
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the rear wiper motor from the motor connector receptacle (REAR WIPER MOTOR REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Loosen the two screws that secure the rear wiper motor mounting bracket to the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Slide the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket forward far enough to disengage the two mounting screws from the keyed slots in the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Remove the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket from the tailgate as a unit.

1 - BEZEL AND GASKET
2 - OUTPUT SHAFT
3 - TAILGATE OUTER PANEL
4 - NUT
5 - NUT COVER

What you will need to do is to remove the small plastic cap on the wiper arm by prying it off with a screw driver. Then remove the nut that holds the arm onto the shaft. Then get yourself a battery cable puller (from auto parts store) and pull the arm off of the shaft..

Rear wiper and washer of BMW 5 E39 not working


I had the same problem. I thought it was an issue with a blown fuse, but also noticed that the rear wiper was very stiff.
I solved it by opening the rear window (so the wiper is not clicked into the motor) then squirt some WD40 into the wiper mechanism (I put the oil in from the outside). Gently move the wiper from side to side until it starts to free up - after a couple of movements the wiper should be moving freely again. No issues since.

At the same time, check that the washer jet is correctly angled. Mine was squirting directly into the wiper which may have caused it to rust up a bit.

Removing rear wiper arm 1992 grand caravan


If this is a factory wiper arm look at the area where it hinges. There should be a small hole in the metal. Find a drill bit or shaft that fits the hole. Lift up on the arm, insert the drill bit. When you release the arm it should be raised of the glass supported by the drill bit. Now without pressure applied to the glass you should be able to wiggle it off the shaft of the motor. Hope that helps.

Rear window wiper problem


I had a 94 wagon, and have a 99 wagon, and 2001 wagon. I think what you need there is a new rear wiper arm. This is about 44 bucks at getsaturnparts.net. The problem is getting the old wiper arm off without breaking the rear window. The corrosion between the wiper arm and the motor output shaft basically turns the metal into one piece, which may well explain why your arm spring is not holding the arm close to the window. Also explains why you cannot find used saturn rear wiper arms or rear motors on ebay. There is a small sliding lock at the base, but having moved it aside you will find the corrosion will not let the arm go anywhere.

Having done this twice, my approach as follows:

Get a new wiper arm

Take a hack saw and carefully saw the top of the wiper arm off exposing the motor shaft end. After spraying WD40 or other corrosion remover on get a small gear puller and pull the arm off the shaft. Use never seize and slide the new one on.

99 Nissan Quest real wiper runs continually when ignition is on


Principles of Operation
Operation of the windshield wiper and washer is controlled by the front wiper/washer amplifier assembly. The front wiper/washer amplifier input comes from the multifunction switch by means of a voltage divider circuit. A constant voltage is applied to the multifunction switch by the front wiper/washer amplifier. When the multifunction switch is moved into the LO, HI, or intermittent position, the voltage is directed through a series of resistors. This results in various voltages being returned to the module for each switch position. The module then grounds the appropriate circuit, based on the voltage signal received back from the multifunction switch. This causes the wipers to run intermittently, or at the appropriate speed. Voltage is supplied to the wiper motor by the CJB fuse F46 (20A).
When the multifunction switch wash button is depressed, it bypasses all of the resistors returning a full voltage signal to the module. The module then grounds the appropriate circuits to operate the windshield washer pump for as long as the switch is depressed. The windshield wiper speed is dependent on the position of the windshield wiper/washer switch.
Voltage for the windshield washer pump is also provided by CJB fuse F46 (20A).
Operation of the rear wiper and washer is controlled by the rear wiper/washer switch.
Voltage is supplied to the rear window wiper motor by the fuse junction panel fuse F44 (10A).
The rear window wiper motor ground is made or broken by the rear wiper/washer switch. When the rear wiper/washer switch is moved into the WIPER position, it grounds the rear window wiper motor circuit, causing the rear window wiper motor to run once every 10-15 seconds.
Voltage to the rear washer pump motor is also supplied by the CJB fuse F44 (10A). The rear washer pump is directly controlled by the rear wiper/washer switch which makes or breaks the ground for the washer pump motor, depending upon its position.
If the vehicle is equipped with a movable liftgate glass, a liftgate glass switch is utilized to prevent rear window wiper operation when the liftgate glass is open. This same switch also causes the rear window wiper to drop down approximately three inches when the liftgate glass latch is released.
