You can disconnect the wiper motor from the harness by just removing the plugs don't have to worry about a fuse.

What would cause the windshield wipers on my recently purchased Jeep Patriot Sport work on every speed except the high speed. High speed doesn't work at all.


The intermittent switch has a bad contact in it for the high speed, i would say, most likely will have to replace it.

Windshield wipers working intermittently. Sometimes takes 5 minutes before they begin to work. Other times stop in mid wipe.


This is the wiper motor failing...But to be safe unplug wiper motor,turn on wiper switch,connect test light to negative side of battery or good solid metal ground and stick probe in connector.if it is not working and the test light is not on then the wiper switch has failed.....and if the test light comes on at connector the wiper motor has failed..Since it works intermittently have an assistant to work the wiper switch and test a number of times to be sure.You can buy a cheap test light that will be good enough to check this at any auto parts store...BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR TEST MAKE SURE TEST LIGHT
HAS GOOD GROUND BY CLAMPING TO NEGATIVE SIDE OF BATTERY AND TOUCH PROBE TO POSITIVE SIDE OF BATTERY TO ENSURE GOOD CONNECTION...LIGHT WILL COME ON.

I have a 2004 volvo v40. When i wash the windscreen the headlight wiper on the drivers side parkes in the upright position. Whats wrong.


Probably the wiper motor needs some maintenance. The grooves that hold the wiper arm may be worn, but usually it is the motor itself which needs new brushes or something.

Not expensive. Probably cheaper to buy a new one than try to repair the old one which may then work another few months.

If your car has the xenon headlights, it might be a faulty xenon ballast/regulator module. You car has daytime running lights so they are on at a low power setting all the time.

Headlight wiper


They shouldn't - they only work when you do a wash/wipe.

Behind Headlamp remove wiring clip and tape it off. At the same time tie off the water pipe. That'll do the job quickly. Otherwise removing the whole wiper system isn't a big job.
