I think the multi-function switch is bad on my 2005 Ford Taurus SE.The windshield wipers are functioning continuously.The fuse box is located under my hood. Which fuse can I pull to "kill" the wipers?


open the bonnet open the black fuse and relay plastic box. Listen for the relay kicking in or you may be able to feel the relay or look on the cover for the relay location. Pull out the relay .
I have a faulty headlight switch myself and had to hard wire my head lights on with a jump wire. The relay is in my pocket until I can get a new headlight indicator stalk. You may be able to jump wire the wipers with spade connectors to work with a jump wire in case you need wipers until you can replace the wiper stalk .
It could be a stuck relay causing the fault rather than the switch. you need to check if switch causes voltage to turn off accross the relay coil in the relay mount block.

2000 Jeep Cherokee- we just purchased last week.... front wipers won't work. Checked fuse- it's good. Ran wire from battery to wiper motor- it works. Ah ha.... no relay.... purchased relay- NOW......


You can not solve by guessing

You need wiring diagrams, so you know what is
in that system & what is most likely the problem

Then you test to confirm,never replace any parts
until tested & fail a test

Wish & Hope-Push & Poke Not a diagnostic strategy

2000 amigo intermitent wiper relay location


The actual relay is in a box called "alarm" which is mounted behind the glove box under a vent. The alarm part is a chip that dings when you leave the keys in the ignition. The box has other relays including one for the horn.
The circuit board and box are a couple of hundred dollars from the dealer, or you can solder in a new relay for the wipers.

Windshield wipers work when fuse is in but won't turn off unless you remove the fuse. Won't pass inspection. Help!


Check the relay relay maybe latched on. See if there is an identical relay in the box and swap them if problem goes away replace relay.

Rear wiper works 3 times and quits motor works with aux power


does the rear wiper have a delay..?
turn it on and after it stops, leave it for at least a minute.
Some of these vehicles also have a moisture sensor so if the window is dry, the wiper will not operate until the sensor detects moisture.
You may also have a timing relay issue but the location of the relay is hard to determine as some have the relay under the dash while others mount it at the rear of the vehicle..

2001 dodge caravan, intermittent part of the wipers do not work


As the intermittent wipers are based on resistance, try the easiest fixes first:1. Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. Pull the relays for the blower motor and both wiper relays and the 30 amp fuse for the wipers. These are located under the hood in the fuse/relay box. The best way is to be careful and use a set of pliers. The reason you pull the blower relay is so that it is easier to pull the intermittent relay. Clean these off the blades of the relay with a burnishing tool (in a pinch you can use your wife's nail polisher that is like very fine sandpaper. Once the are a pretty silver color, wipe them off with some rubbing alcohol. Put them in and pull them out about 5 times into the relay socket and leave them in. Clean the blades for the fuse with a cue tip and rubbing alcohol and then put the fuse in and pull it out about 5 times then leave it in. Hook up the negative terminal and take the key to the on position and turn the wiper to the lowest position. If it works if should take about 36 seconds between strokes. 2. The next easiest is taking the cover off the top of the steering column and pulling off the wiper switch and replacing it. There are three screws that hold the cover and two that hold the switch plus the electrical connector. You can buy a used one at a "junk yard" for about $20. 3. Replace the wiper motor (takes about a couple of hours start to finish). It involves removing the wipers, the cowl (plastic cover over the wiper motor right below the windshield), loosening and lifting the scissor arms for the wiper arms and removing the motor (this involves disconnecting the power connector and feeding it back to the motor).Hopefully your issue is like 95% of the wiper issues and it is just a little bit of corrosion on the wiper relays and fuse!

Windshield wiper failure


It sounds like the park switch in the top end of the wiper motor is stuck closed.
