Question about 2011 Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

When the front wipers are on and I am reversing, the rear wiper automatically comes on. This happened while it was snowing and there was frost on the window so the arm just broke off. Are others finding this problem?

During a recent snowstorm, the weight of the snow was apparently too much for the rear wiper. It stopped mid-stream and is stuck. Simultaneously, the intermittent function of the front wipers also quit. ...


Check fuse no. 11 (10A) in the driver's under dash fuse/relay box. I suspect it is blown. It provides power for the rear wiper, both washers, and the intermittent wiper function for front and rear. It probably blew when your rear wiper got stuck.

Snow on windows and wife turned on wipers and they didn't come on 20006 maxima ..


wipers dont do very well in ice and snow after the snow and ice was cleared did they work again if not check fuse if fuse is good
First: is it the wipers, wiper arms or motor that is at fault? Most times it is the ball joint piece that comes off, disabling the wipers, and the motor is still good. This reauires replacement of the wiper arm mechanism that has the "socket" on the end, a plastic part. If it is the motor, read on... The motor is located on the passenger side, mounted on the firewall. It "connects" to the arms that move the wipers via a ball joint. The wiper arm has a plastic part that has to be "popped" off the ball of the motor to be able to remove the motor. It simply snaps back on. You facillitate this by removeing the black plastic air vent screen that runs across the engine are near the window. After removing this you will see the arms that control wiper movement. It helps to "undo" the ball/socket if the motor is loose also. Install is just the reverse.

Rear wiper runs when front wipers are turned on even after it was replaced? Dealer not sure?


The rear wiper on CR-V's is designed to go on when the front wipers are on and either one of 2 things: 1. you turn the rear wiper switch on, or 2. when the front wipers are on, if you shift into reverse, the rear wiper automatically is activated. Is it one of these, or do they just run all the time the front wipers are on? If that's the case, you probably need to have the wiper switch replaced. If the dealer said he's not sure, go to another dealer.

Window wipers not working although its motor is


sounds as if the wiper arm to the motor has come undone and removal of the panel on the firewall needs to be removed in order to reattach the arm ..this happens from either wear or when heavy snow and ice prevent the wipers from working and from the force of the motor will cause it to pop ...fairly easy to do simply open the hood and remove the screws to the panel ..locate the wiper motor and you will see the panel which covers the wiper apparatus remove it and after the wipe armature is located you may need to turn the key on and shut the wipers to Off position and then turn off the key before reattaching the arm ...reverse procedure is how to reinstall the panel ...

on another note are you sure the wipers themselves are not stripped out the spline drive to the wiper or that they are properly seated as well ..that would be my 2nd thought

If the motor comes on automatically when the car starts its possible a build up of ice in the winter could prevent it from operating and burn it out.
