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.

Troubleshoot wipers


Best if you have a wiring diagram of at least the part of
the curcuit your going to work on (wiper circuit)

That applies to any electrical issue,simply can't start your
checking or testing without a road map.

If it were to guess for you,I would say the motor has failed

Even with a wiring diagram it isn't always easy to jump it
once out of the car,to test it. You won't have the internal
wiring diagram for the motor.

The switch you can turn on & use your volt meter at the
wiper motor with it disconnected,but again need to have the
diagram to probe the correct wires

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.

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.
