My 2004 lincoln towncar windshield wipers come on by themselves, and will not turn off


Is this your first Lincoln? Our 1989 had "rain sensor" and the wipers would come on with the lights if it deemed the mist/rain was making the windshield damp. Almost all cars today have this build in the computer. Some work with a different circuit other than the wiper mode, to allow the lights to come on, the dimming of the dash lights means the lights are on, and then when they come back to a higher resolution they are off. I am not sure what you are saying about the light switch. So can't help you with that.

Why do windshield wipers work on low speed only?


Check the wires to your wiper motor. You may have a loose connection. Otherwise your wiper motor may be burning out, or the switch is malfunctioning. Try jiggling the switch in all directions with the wipers on high. I have a feeling its the switch not the motor.

My windshield wipers wont work.


It Sounds Like, Either The Arms Are Loose ,If You Can Hear Something Moving Behind The Dash,
Or The Linkages Are Seized ,If The Motor Just Hums No Movement Heard,In Which Case Try Spraying Q 20 On The Linkage And Try Moving The Wiper Arms By Hand To Get It Going Again,
If Not The Motor May Just Be Burn;t Out.

I changed the relay fuse to my windshield wipers and the knob and my wipers still wont work on my 98 plymoth grand voyager what should i check


Turn wipers on (veh in "on" or "acc" position)
Disconnect the electrical connection at the windshield wiper motor (located in the engine compartment on the fire wall) and check for voltage. If you have voltage, there is a good possibility your windshield wiper motor is bad.
You may also: Disconnect the electrical connection at the windshield motor and run a heavy gauge wire directly from the positive side of the battery to the motor. If you get the windshield motor to come on. There may be only a wiring (short) problem between the relay and the motor.

Wipers not working on 98 saturn sl1


sounds like a short in the wiper switch inside cab.
test volts at the wiper motor with switch on with test light if none, check wiring to motor for shorts or breaks.
replace switch inside cab if all else checks ok.

if light lights up at motor IE has 12 volts at motor,on all wiper settings, it may be bad motor.

OFF/Low/High Speed
  • Has a two-speed, permanent magnet, three brush electric windshield wiper motor .
  • The windshield wiper motor has a brush rigging that permits selection of low or high speed.

When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the interval position:
  • The wipers make single wipes separated by pauses.
  • The rotary switch is on the end of turn signal and windshield wiper switch .
  • The length of the pause can be set from approximately 1 to 17 seconds.
  • Length of pause decreases as the rotary switch is rotated away from off.
  • Length of pause increases as the rotary switch is rotated toward off.
While in the interval wiper mode:
  • It is normal to hear a slight click at the beginning of each on/pause cycle. NOTE: When using interval wipers, the first wipe may not occur until after a pause of up to 17 seconds.

Windshield wipers intermittent on 2002 Windstar


2002 Windstar wipers would come on by themselves, or not work set on intermittent, driver door lock would not work sometimes, ABS and brake light would come on sometimes, the problem was in the park switch inside the wiper motor. I replaced with wrecking yard wiper motor $44.95 w/13 month warranty. no more problem. check how many pins on connector plug, mine had 5 on the wiper motor side.Take the wiper assembly off of the metal cowl, 2 nuts, & I bolt, it is easier to snap the actuator pieces off of the wiper motor that way.
