    I have a 2004/2005 Range Rover Vogue and my front wipers have failed in heavy rain on the motorway four times over the last few months. Fortunately on each occasion I have been able to make it to the hard shoulder safely. Usually, turning engine on and off a few times gets them working again, however, on the third failure it took twenty minutes. The local dealership has replaced the wiper motor, relay, control unit and done a point to point wiring and resistance check. After the last failure they kept thevehicle for a week but were unable to replicate the fault. I have written to Range Rover who just say that this is not a common fault. However, the more you look on the internet the more reports of this failure you find.

    I have the same type of problem with a 1998 Range Rover. Initally it started to blow fuses then we put a resetting fuse in. This worked for a while but has gradually got worse. Now we only have the wipers working on full. The service centre have now said that we need to replace a $3000 control unit under the seat to make the wipers work. This is rediculous.

The problem you have comes from wiper blades causing friction in light rain conditions and can be cured by cleaning the rubber that contacts your windscreen with a rubber cleaner/conditioner or you can use spray silicone on the blades.

Check the Relay switches in the fuse box and make sure there's a good connection to the motor that runs the wipers it can be found bottom of the windscreen under the hood.

Windscreen wipers not working on my vw passat 2005 '05' but washers are working!


First time you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
If the windscreen wipers fuse is good:
In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows:

1. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!!
2. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen.
3. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. It is necessary to unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and disconnect the electrical coupling (difficult assurance). If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6, 7. If not you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and electric cables.
4. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand. In the most cases the left bearing is out of order (is very hot). This is the most encounter fault of the wipers.
5. For have enough space to manipulation the wiper motor together with their mechanism you must extract the plastic cover of the engine computer box, and extract also the box screws. Then you can move slowly the engine computer box, just for a few milimeters.
6. You must disconnect the electrical coupling of the motor (difficult assurance), unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and extract together with the motor. You must move them slowly between windscreen and engine computer box until the wiper motor go out together with the mechanism. This is the most difficult operation!
7. Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. It is not very simply, but it works.
Heed of the windscreen !!!
Refit all in reverse order.

I just turned on my windscreen wipers to move the snow, they worked but i heard a loud werring sound and then stopped working after a couple more uses. whats wrong?


Sounds to me like the wiper motor may have burnt out. First thing to do is chack your fuse panel if they are all ok consult your manual for the location of the relay if again this is fine you will need to replace the motor. Was the windscreen completely covered? If so I dare say your problem will be the motor

Rear windscreen wiper not working. Fuses are fine. Windscreen has always played up by opening on its own, particularly when its raining.


The rear wiper is sticking or wpn't work?


Pick up some Rain-X at the auto parts store and apply it to the glas, In fact aplly it to all glass on your vehicle Make sure glass is clean and dry before applying. You will be very satiafied with how water will run off.and the coating will help the wipers glide over the glass. Good luck Ned.. I used it on my motor home and was very satisfied that at times I didn't even need to use the wipers.

Most likely this is caused by something binding or water getting inside the motor,either way it is tripping the thermal overload inside the wiper motor.
