My wiper motor only works on high and stops were ever the wipers are at. And the washer motor doest #39;t work


Low Speed Windshield Wipers
Low speed is activated when the multifunction switch supplies a specific ground to the speed inputs of the windshield wiper motor module. The windshield wiper motor module then supplies ground to only the windshield wiper run/park relay coil, activating it. When the windshield wiper run/park relay is activated, the deactivated high/low relay connects voltage to the windshield wiper motor low input activating the wiper motor. The windshield wiper motor module continues to operate the windshield wiper motor in the same manner as in high speed, but in low speed with the wiper motor connected to the low speed input.
Washer System
The windshield washer is activated by the internal wiper motor module when it receives a ground signal input from the multifunction switch. Dependent on the switch selection, the internal wiper motor module activates the windshield washer relay (internal) by grounding the respective relay coil. When the relay is activated, it connects voltage to the washer pump while the washer level switch provides ground to the washer pump.

    Why is my windshield wipers running in the off position, it's like they are running in the intermittent position, but it's in the off position.


    When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

    I have a 2007 mustang an the wipers wont turn off I had 2 pull the fuse to turn them off can u help me


    The windshield wiper motor is a smart wiper motor with an integrated electronics module. The internal components of the motor are the high/low relay, washer pump relay, and the run/park relay and associated electronics.
    The windshield wiper motor receives its inputs from the windshield wiper/washer switch. These signals are ground reference signals. When the switch is placed in different positions, various input signals are selected and sent through circuits to the motor. The windshield wiper motor module identifies these selected input signals and activates the motor to the selected function.!
    Your probably going to need a new wiper motor ! ! ! But you should always test before replacing parts !

    Sounds like the park switch in the wiper motor is bad.Some manufacturers allwo you to change the circuit board seperately from the motor,sometimes they have to be changed as a unit

    After turn on windshield wipers, they will not


    There is two place that you can check which would cause this problem. (1) the switch it self and the other is the (2) circuit board on the wiper motor. It's common for the solder on the circuit board where the wire harness clips on the wiper motor to crack and needs to be re soldered. You can buy the replacement at Auto Zone or you can re solder it your self to safe you the $15.00 for the board. If you give it a light tap and the wipers stop, then it's the circuit board. If it keeps working, then it's the switch on the steering column and you can get that at Auto Zone also and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the hob done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted.
