If you mean by " pushing the lever up "the control for the wipers I would guess the switch at the end of the arm/lever isn't making good contact. If they work when you hold the lever up then for sure its the micro switch. If you can open it up and clean it, it might work better. I'm thinking older v/w but you didn't say and all I've had was and old bug.
good luck.

My rear window wiper blade and the the fluid for the window dont work. the front ones are fine and the fluid also comes out but the back ones dont even move and the fluid doesn't come out. pls help,


The wiper motor and pump motor are not being energized. Since they both do not work it has to be something they both have in common like a fuse.

Check your car manual for a description of what fuse is for what. When you find the fuse that takes care of those motors replace it.

My golf vr6 wipers only worrk on fast speed intermittent and ordinary speed dont work


Sounds simple.
First port of call is the wiper switch and wiring to it from fuse box. The swicth especially.

Next port of call will be wiring and connections from fuse box to wiper motor. Wiper motos seems to be OK according to your fault description.

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

No solution sorry - mine have done exactly the same - will wipe front screen if you mess with the stalk - rear wiper works when you push the stalk forwards or backwards but no washer to either - have you found a solution? Kind regards - Andy

You seem to have the motor not working or there is not any power going to the washer pump motor. Check the fuse in the box first.

Fault with saab 9-3 aero


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.

Windscreen wiper not working


check the switch on the steering usualy it becomes faulty after a while and also your window washers could be blocked but try turning it on if you do not hear a buzzing sound the motors needs to be replaced.
