The main fuse panel is located in the vehicle, on the left side, under the steering column between the brake pedal and the left side kick panel. The Power Distribution Center (PDC) box is located in the engine compartment by the coolant overflow bottle.

I'm driving in rain, wipers working good, all of a sudden they quit! I drive for 15 min, check again, they work for a while, then quit again...what in the problem?


If your not familiar with automotive electronics an module control of components , I suggest you take it to the dealer . They have the tools to diagnose this type problem !
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
?€¢
Windshield wiper/washer switch


?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
Wiper PCB relay


?€¢
Wiper high PCB relay


?€¢
Windshield wiper motor


?€¢
Windshield washer fluid pump


?€¢
Windshield washer fluid level switch


?€¢
WPR fuse 25 A


?€¢
WSW fuse 10 A


Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the low speed position, ground is applied through the switch internal resistor and the wiper switch low signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). In response to this signal, the BCM energizes the WIPER PCB relay by applying battery voltage through the wiper relay control circuit to the coil side of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the WPR fuse to flow through the switch input side of the WIPER PCB relay and out to the switch input side of the WIPER HIGH PCB relay. Since the wiper high relay is de-energized and its switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed control circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.
High Speed Operation When the wiper switch is in the high speed position, ground is applied through the windshield wiper switch high signal circuit to the body control module (BCM) indicating the wiper high speed request. In response to this signal, the BCM then energizes the wiper PCB relay, as stated above, and the wiper high PCB relay by applying ground through the control circuit to the coil side of the relay. With the wiper high relay energized and its switch contacts closed to the high speed control circuit of the wiper motor, the motor will operate at high speed.
Wiper motor high speed operation and the wiper high speed PCB relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Control Module References.

You could Have a switch problem , BCM problem ,PCB relay problem , the pcb relays are non serviceable an the whole under hood fuse box would need to be replaced . Malfunctioning motor bad ground some where etc.....

Windshield Wipers on 2007 Altima Quit on High


It might be either switch itself or wiper relay.
Ufortunatly I don't know location of the relay.
You can actually find relay by noise , put the switch on intermittent position and see where the cliking coming from.

My windshield wipers stopped working after a big snow storm. (1997 Jeep Cherokee)


You should check your fuses first. What may of happened is that the wiper motor could be frozen if the wiper arms are frozen in ice. Another thing that may of happened is that the wipers were used to clear the windshield instead of clearing it manually. When that is done if there is too much snow or it is a heavy snow the wiper motor will burn up or go bad due to the fact that it does not have enough power to do such things.

My windshield wipers suddenly quit working.


First check the fuse, if the fuse is good check to see if you are getting power at the wiper motor. Power at the motor means bad motor, no power is either the switch or wiring.

Winshield wipers not working, due to snow removal


Ok, If wipers were frozen to windshield at one point, it is possible to either blow fuse or burn out motor. The motors used on Jeeps are pathetic... sometimes unable to run on a dry windshield unless water is sprayed on it! Same goes for wiper transmission... If you moved it by hand, you can bend or otherwise damage it, but that is less frequent! Check fuse, relay and motor for power (in that order) and you will likely find the problem.if you haven't already!!!
