Question about 1996 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

1996 Taurus GL wipers were working fine, then suddenly went to working at one speed only (slow). Intermittent setting doesn't work at all, and although the wiper speed is slow it only works on "high/fast" setting. I'm thinking it's either relay or multi-function switch, but despite looking in Chilton's and on internet, I'm unable to find exact location of the relay. Would appreciate any advice/info, thanks in advance.

Windshield wipers work but interminent settings don't


most likely cause is the wiper switch has gone bad and unable to 'time' the intermittent speeds.the intermittent speeds work on a resistor type system where low and high speeds add direct voltage.

Wiper speed control for a '97 Mercury Grand Marquis. What causes the wiper to work on high speed only?


Intermittent wiper control stopped working on my 1996 GM last spring. I ended up replacing the wiper motor ($100.00 part). Since I have found it on Amazon for $58 including shipping. It works fine now. Only bad part was all the "stuff" that has to come out (like dead leaves!) to get to the wiper motor. Also make sure you have your wipers in the down position when you replace the motor.

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.


i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
Thanks

1990 Ford Taurus GL windshield wipers park in the wrong position


I have a 1996 Ford Taurus with a similar malfunction the intermittent wiper function is erratic, but the wipers park properly. I'm the original owner & this malfunction was in the car from the factory. I have a regular Ford Dealership manual & came to the conclusion that the Generic Electronic Module located behind the fuse panel is bad (computer glitch in programming) ! Ford Dealers want over $ 300.00 for a brand new module, I haven't checked with my local used auto parts recycler yet, but I know it will be less than the dealer price !
