Question about 1998 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Wiring diagram I need to switch the polarity on a wiper motor that i am using as an electric sliding gate motor.Switching the polarity changes the direction the gate is moving in.I have a simple remote switch reciever that closes a contact point on the touch of the remote button.The contact points only closes on the touch action and opens immediately as you release the button.The rack gear has two mechanical brackets that touches a spring loaded switch to stop the gate when it is completely open or closed.As the whole system is 12volt dc, i want to use 4pin 12v relays.I need a complete wiring diagram.

Ok, try purchasing a Chilton Manual (NOT a Haynes- it's junk). In it you'll find the complete wiring diagram.

The wipers will start, then stop like someone is holding them, then in a while they will try to move again, then stop off and on


when it happens you can use a hammer and tap the motor, if it starts the motor is worn and needs to be changed. also check the ground for the wiper motor. when it happens again connect a ground wire from the motor body to a good ground if it starts permanently connect the wire. these are the 2 most common problems that can occour.

02 liberty rear wiper dose not work plugin has power changed wiper motor still doses work


There is a nut under the black plastic bezel that needs to be removed. Here is the complete procedure for you to look at. Its possible that your arm isn't adjust at wiper motor...

REMOVAL
- Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
- Remove the rear wiper arm from the rear wiper motor output shaft. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL / REAR WIPERS / WASHERS/REAR WIPER ARM - REMOVAL).
- Using a small thin-bladed tool, gently pry at the notch in the base of the rear wiper motor output shaft bezel to unsnap the nut cover from the bezel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL). Be certain to take proper precautions to protect the outer tailgate panel and its paint finish from damage during this procedure.
- Remove the nut that secures the rear wiper motor output shaft to the outer swing gate panel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Remove the bezel and gasket from the rear wiper motor output shaft.
- Remove the trim panel from the tailgate inner panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/SWING GATE/TRIM PANEL - REMOVAL).
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the flip-up glass ajar switch from the flip-up glass latch connector receptacle.
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the rear wiper motor from the motor connector receptacle (REAR WIPER MOTOR REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Loosen the two screws that secure the rear wiper motor mounting bracket to the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Slide the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket forward far enough to disengage the two mounting screws from the keyed slots in the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Remove the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket from the tailgate as a unit.

1 - BEZEL AND GASKET
2 - OUTPUT SHAFT
3 - TAILGATE OUTER PANEL
4 - NUT
5 - NUT COVER

What you will need to do is to remove the small plastic cap on the wiper arm by prying it off with a screw driver. Then remove the nut that holds the arm onto the shaft. Then get yourself a battery cable puller (from auto parts store) and pull the arm off of the shaft..

Hooked jumper cables in reverse / charging voltage too high / battery drains when eveything is off / windshield wipers on when engine running even thoug wiper switch is off. 89 mercury cougar 3.8 LS.


Hello, You probably ruined the Regulator and the Diodes in the Alternator. Your Diodes are like a one-way gate, they are suppose to stop the Alternator from discharging when the engine is off. Reversing the polarity probably fused them and now the current continues to flow when the engine is off. You need take the Alternator off and carry it to Autozone, Advance, or Oreillys where testing is free and so are the scans.

The wiper problems can be both the motor and the Wiper switch. I believe you can have the wiper motor checked off the car. If the wiper motor tests out okay, then you need a new wiper switch which is on the turnstalk. The entire assembly is called a MFS, multifunction switch and you will need to disassemble the steering column to change the parts. You may have to take off the Ignition switch too for clearance on removing parts.

Sometimes it is faster to pay someone with spare parts and knowledge to fix something like this. You can order Salvage parts from Car-parts.com and get a warranty, some places are better than others on the warranty, if you are going to fix it yourself.

You are not the first person to have this problem, its easy to make this mistake. You may have other problems, like inoperative gauges or a bad fuel pump. It all depends on what was switched on when the wires were crossed.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. Once you replace the damaged parts everything should work normal.

Have a 1992 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer Tailgate window motor problem


I looked at my schematics, and they don't show a relay. They do, however, show two ground wires coming out of the tailgate window switch. There is a ground wire for the "up" side of the switch, and a ground wire for the "down"side. These would be color-coded black, and I think that it is worth checking to make sure you don't have a corroded /broken ground running from the tailgate switch. If only one grounding wire was broken, the window would operate in only one direction. Both dash and tailgate switches share the same wiring circuit, and these wires are "hot" all the time. It's normal when you get both sides of the motor leads at 12VDC when neither switch is activated. These switches function by switching off one of the two motor leads, and connecting it to ground, thus allowing power to flow thru the motor windings. Of course, reversing the polarity on a DC motor will change the direction of rotation, so changing which black lead is switched to ground gives the up or down direction to the motor.. since you can read schematics, you might check out ebay for a used Haynes manual cheap. hope this helps

WIPERS WON'T WORK-CHANGED FUSE


Check for B+ at the wiper fuse terminal, then check for voltage at the wiper motor. If your getting B+ at both of these locations then disconnect the electrical connector on the motor of wiper motor and jump the motor directly to the battery. If the wiper doesn't work you need a new motor. If B+ was not found at any of the other locations you have to back probe the wire to find the open.
Furthermore , you have to test the switch and the relay.
Use the shop manual to do this. Good luck

I am trying to replace the front wiper motor for my 2001 chevy venture. The wipers are not parking fully down, and the intermittent setting parks the wipers about half way up until it is ready to wipe...


Check that you have connected the wiper motor correctly - ensure that you havent inadvertently got the polarity wrong!.
Leave the wiper arms off until you get the motor to run and park using the normal wiper on/off switch.
The motor 'park' control switching is normally an integral part of the motor drive gear and is not adjustable.
During your testing, affix a temporary indicator pointer to the end of a wiper arm drive shaft (use masking tape or similar) to prevent damage to motor or levers.
