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

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..

1988 ford bronco back window motor does not work


remove the access panel on the tailgate and test to see if there is power to the motor. if there isn't check the fuse, wire and the safety switch either located on the bottom of the handle or the drivers side latch. if there is power to the motor replace the motor, it is the same as the passanger door window motor

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.

Rear window won't go up and down


thats easy,spray the switch at the latch on the drivers side,and open and close it a few times,that switch keeps the window from going up with the gate down and they do get sticky
