Turn on whyper and nothing happen


In most cases the wiper motor itself fails and needs to be replaced, this isn't a easy repair considering the amount of things that need to be removed to get the entire wiper motor and transmission assembly out together. Now if there is also issues with anything else on the wiper / blinker / cruise control switch, you may need to replace the wiper switch assembly on the column.

The 2004 Nissan Sentra I own intermittent wipers don't work. Can anyone tell me how to fix them?


The intermittent function for your wipers is controlled by the wiper control amplifier. This is an integral part of the wiper (combination) switch and is serviced only by replacing the switch assembly.

Windshield wipers don't work. Not the fuse. Also my blinkers don't work. Had to take out fuse. If let in driver side blinker stays on. Arm does not do anything


Hi,

Start with the easy stuff. Since you've already ruled out fuses, both issues sound like bad relays. The blinker relay is usually in the fuse panel and cheap to replace.

The wiper relay if I'm not mistaken is in the switch assembly on the steering column. This is a little more expensive because you have to replace the whole switch assembly.

Good luck!

I have no brake lights, the blinkers run really fast and if the headlights are on the blinkers will not run at all while braking. Any ideas?


Have the multi-function switch and its circuits tested. The multi function switch is the blinker arm and the components its attached to in the steering wheel column. The multifunction switch has to do with blinkers, cruise control, wipers, wiper spray, high beams and also tied in with headlight dimmers/daytime running lights(if applicable) and hazards usually.

A good place to start.

Where can I find the electrical specs? the blinkers both stopped working. The hazard blinkers do work.


Any other strange electrical issues? Headlights, blower, wipers?
Its quite possibly the ignition switch. Just had to replace it on my daughter's 97 jetta. She had first the blinkers behaving erratically, then it was random electrical issues after that. At first we were sure it was in the combination switch, or the arms off the steering column that operate the blinkers, wipers etc. Unfortunately, that change didn't fix it. After a bit more research I learned the ignition switch on these creates these symptoms. Changing the switch wasn't very difficult with a diagram and a bit of experience and the part was only about 30.00.
Hope I've helped -Good luck!

Front wipers not working right


Hey paul. It sounds to me like it is in the switch itself. I had a ford truck that some wiper options quit working on and it took replacing the blinker switch.
