Hello,

The problem is most likely from either the wiring or the fuse. If the wiring got disconnected at a point, the wiper wont work, Therefore i will strongly advice you run a check on the wiring. Then you also check if there is no blown fuse anywhere. You can also check the relay switch of your car to see if there is not a problem there. You can also check the wipers motor. Once you have run the check, then you will be able to detect the problem and know how to solve it.

You can try out these solutions first before running a check:
Flick it against the windshield.

At the base of the wiper arm, there is a small cap to cover the point where the arm is mounted to the mechanism. Remove the cap and tighten the nut. You may have to loosen and tighten the nut a few times to adjust the arc or movement of the arm. It might not work immediately you try it out so a little trial and error will do the job for you.

Take care and good luck

Wipers malfunction


You will need to replace the module that is attached to the w/s wiper motor (black cover). Sometimes tapping on this cover will make the wipers come on when they are not working.

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.

Rear wiper does not work at all. front wipers work fine. rear washer works


1. check the fuse to the rear wiper motor
2. check for power to rear wiper motor at the motor (power wire going in to the wiper motor with rear wiper switch on)
If you have good fuses & have power going in to the rear wiper motor...
3. Pull old rear wiper motor and install a new rear wiper motor.
Thank you please drive thru......
