Wipers only work on fast. Checked the relay and its good, checked the switches and its good. What else needs to be checked?


This is (obviously) a two-speed motor. The low speed winding is burned out. Replace the motor.

1985 gmc k1500 wipers only move at 1 slow spped, interminttent doesnt work at all. How fast is fast and why is fast not working?


Slow is the same speed as 'mist'. Mist is when you twist the control arm backwards to induce a single swipe. If you hold it, you will run the wipers in low speed. Fast is faster than that. Probably by 30% or more.

Turn the wipers on high speed. Wiggle the connector at the wiper motor. If the wipers run sporadically as you wiggle the connector, you either have a bad connector or a bad circuit board on the wiper motor.

My front windscreen wipers on my BMW mini are not working - fuses are fine, back wiper and washers ok too. Just front wipers - is the likely problem a relay?


You actually have a wiper relay this should assist you swap with another see if functions
Service and Repair
The wipers are controlled by two relays, located in the engine compartment fuse box.
These are wired in such a way that one relay will run the wiper when energized, and stall it when de-energized (Front Wiper-Run/Park Relay).
The other will select either fast or slow speed on the wiper motor (Front Wiper-Fast/ Slow Relay).

WIPERS


My wife complained about the same thing on her BMW. After driving it on a long road trip in the rain, we realized that if you just turn it to the first setting, the wipers automatically speed up, and slow down as rain increases/decreases.

Wiper Speed changes from slow to fast then back to slow without moving switch!


the reason for your wiper speed change is due to the rain sensor which controls the speed of your wipers,determined by how much rain is comming down.the rain sensor is located behind your rear view mirror.

Wipers only work on fast speed no intermittent or slow wipe


The common way of controlling wiper speed is to use a 'tapped' resistor that supplies reduced voltage to the wiper motor on all but the fast setting.
They have to dissipate a good bit of heat and are subject to failure; I think yours has done that.
