    My front windshield wipers on my 2000 Izuzu Rodeo will not return to the down position when turned off, and when used in the intermittent position stop halfway in the first upward movement and will not move again untill I switch to the low or high speed position.

    I recently started having the same problem with my wipers on my 2000 Isuzu Rodeo. They won't return to their starting position when turned off unless they are in fast mode.

This problem is often caused by a faulty relay on the alarm module.

The module has three identical relays on it, one for the front wipers, one for the rear wipers, and one for something else. You can probably find a small 12V relay at your local Radio Shack. If not, Mouser Electronics ( sells everything you need.

Remove the alarm module (A & C module - under the glove box). You might also want to remove the keyless remote box and the support bracket to give you more room to work). Desolder the relays and install new ones. You'll need a small soldering iron (about a 40 Watt) with a pencil tip, a solder removal bulb (solder ******), some desoldering braid, and some rosin core solder. Be careful with the heat around other components on the board. Too much heat may damage one or more of the surrounding chips or relays. Once the new relays are soldered in, slide the board back into the plastic module, snap it together, and reattach it under the glove box.

1988 nissan civilian. Intermittant wipers dont work. Wipers dont return to park position when turned off.

Hi, sounds like your wiper switch has died, it's what I'd look at first, maybe talk to a wrecker & see if you can buy one, if it fixes the problem, good, if not take it back and get a wiper motor, though I don't think it'll be the motor as it should just stop altogether, hope this helps :)

2008 Dodge Avenger SXT Windsheild Wipers,Turn Signals, headlights

If your car is under 36000 miles take it to your dealer and have it fixed under your warrenty. All of your interior electrical systems are controled by computors and sometime not a simple repair ! The dealer has the tools to monitor different switch states to aid in isolating the problem. Just guessing if its a switch or a computor or a wiring issue can get very costly.

Windshield wipers don't work

Ok, this is a steering column issue. The wiring needs to be replaced. Shouldn't cost much at all. also, the external switch may have issues as well but, i suggest you re wire your steering column to fix this problem.
