2008 chevy equinox rear windshield wiper not working and battery dying. will work when jumping, but dies after being off a few minutes.


you have something draining the battery. you will need to find out were the drain is coming from. could be the alarm /radio/ external alarm module. you will need to find what is doing it. wipe motor could have a a short but that should not affect battery when the car is locked up.

When I first start up my 1995 Toyota Corolla 5-speed, there is a whirring noise. It seems more prominent when the car is cold and when I turn the steering wheel at that time. Also, the battery light has...


for the whirring noice, check for the power steering fluid level, if it's low refill with power steering fluid to the propper level. If the level its fine and the noise continues you have to tighten the engine belts via the tensioner bearings. As for the battery light it's probably letting you know that the alternator is failing, when the light comes on it means that in that precisse moment the alternator isn't charging the battery and that could lead you to a dead battery. (The alternator has a line that it's in charge of activating the battery light if this cable is loose that could make the light go on, secure that cable and if the light never comes on then the alternator is fine) Hope that helps

Purchased a 2009 Murano S. When the car is not


In that case, whenever u take it for a ride and return to your nest, lift the hood and disconnect the battery terminal which I would recommend having a clip(spring loaded clamps with metal jaws) removed from the battery. Next time you use it, first reattach the clamps to the batter, and start normally.......sodeep

2005 ford expedition rear wiper


Sounds like a problem within the wiper motor not turning off at rest or not reaching it's rest point to be able to turn itself off, probably needs a new motor. Disconnecting it should have no relation to the front washer operation, you can confirm this by reconnecting the wiper motor to try.
