It could be wiper motor, unclip wire harness from wiper motor and test each wire with a grounded test light or volt meter (with key on and wiper switch on) if you get voltage when testing then its the motor, if no voltage then change fuse.

You must examine the fuses to rule out a blown fuse ... better yet ... test them with a proper tester. If they all check out, repost indicating there is no problem with the fuse

Are you sure the motor is not running and there is a mechanical disconnect somewhere?

Problem with our 1998 Ford Contour windshield wiper. It stopped working - not sure why. Checked on the motor...working. Problem could be the switch. Checked the fuses under the steering wheel...none...


If the motor is running then the fuse shouldnt be the problem, iv had problems in the past where the tensioning spring that keeps the blade against the window is too tight and has seized the wiper, turn on the wipers and lift the wipers gently and drop them back into place a few times, a few gentle nudges wont hurt,
Hope this helps,
Sion.

Windshield wipers stopped working. Looking for fuse and/or motor for wipers. Could you tellme where they are located.


The main fuse box is under the steering column near the hood release. The wiper motor is above the firewall in the engine compartment just below the windscreen.
The fuse must be in the main fuse box. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. To ease your search the wiper fuse it should be around 15 to 20 amps.

Windshield wipers stopped working on KIA


It could be a couple of things. First, you need to go into your fuse box, the one inside of the car. Look for the fuse that is marked wiper motor. It might just say wipers. Pull the fuse out and make sure it is not blown. Once you do that, if it still doesn't work, turn the wipers to the on position. You should be able to hear the wiper motor working. If you don't, you might need to replace the motor. Being that it is a 2004, I am pointing toward a blown fuse. I hope this helps. Good luck.

My windshield wipers just stopped working for my 1997 saturn sl2


Most certain that the fuse has blown out on the wiper section. So look on your fuse box for the Wiper fuse and replace with the spare available.
Now if the fuse blows out again there is short in the wiper motor , or it has jammed.
If the fuse is intact then the motor can be faulty or a possible break in the wiring.

My windshield wipers stopped working. Could it be a fuse?


Yes its possible that the fuse is blown, check the fuse box and locate the wiper fuse and see if its blown if its blown replace the fuse with the SAME amperage rating, if its not locate the wiper motor under the hood on the firewall and unplug the connector use a test light and turn your wipers on from the wiper switch on your steering column if the test light lights you have power there and the wiper motor is probably bad if theres no power there but the fuse is good you have a broken wire and you need to check all related wiring from the wiper motor to the switch......

Wiper stopped working...what is the problem


Wipers Not Working - Things to Check

To troubleshoot car windshield wiper problems, you need to thoroughly investigate problems with any of its operating parts. Here are some of the things that you need to check to determine why are your car windshield wipers not working.

Check Wiper Motor
The wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.

Check For Break in Connecting Wires
The connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.

Check Wiper Switch
Another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.

Check for Bent Wiper Arms
Bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.

Check For Blown Out Car Fuse
A blown up car fuse could be the culprit that has stopped the windshield wipers from working. Check the fuse assembly under the dashboard of the car. Replacing a blown fuse might fix the problem of windshield wipers not working.

Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working - Things to Check

Sometimes the windshield wiper sprayer stops working which can be very annoying. The washer mechanism is a self cleaning mechanism for the windshield. Here are some of the things that you need to check in case it is not working.

Check Windshield Washer Motor
The windshield washer mechanism might have been impaired due to the malfunctioning of the wiper washer motor. Check if its working and get it replaced if it is beyond repair.

Check Windshield Washer Fluid Level
Sometimes the washer doesn't work because the washer fluid levels are not filled to requisite levels. Filling in fluid might restore normal functioning.

Check For Broken Washer Hose
The connecting washer hose that connects the reservoir to the nozzle, might be broken or worn out stalling the overall operation. Check the hose for leaks and get it replaced.

Check Washer Nozzle For Clogging
Last thing to check is the nozzle of the washer for clogging. An obstruction in the washer nozzle might be the reason for windshield wiper sprayers not working. Using a pin, clean the clogged nozzle. This might restore the sprayer to the normal working condition.
