What is the make model and the year and engine type? do u have fuel pressure? spray starting fluid into the engine and see if It fires up, now check for spark, also the engine control module would be the last the last thing i would suspect has failed, fuel pump would be high on my list of suspects

Hi, The engine needs three basic things, spark, fuel and compression. If your missing one of those it will not start.
And for the Engine Control Module (ECM) fault, you have to scan in car by an authorized tech or take to Auto Zone to scan for free, a code will be gotten and interpreted after the scan and that will determine what needs to be fixed in the car

I need to learn how to put the windshield wiper linkage back on


Remove the wiper arms completely. Turn on the wiper motor and then turn it off again, allowing it to park automatically.
Now put the wiper arms back so that the blades just touch the bottom edge of the windscreen, or wherever the correct position is. Tighten the nuts
Have fun!

Windscreen wipers work when fan comes on


power steering fan is probably seized, may have burnt a few wires together.. there is a tsb for p/s fan circuit, to have its own fuse..
i would isolate that circuit first i think its a green wire in a 12pin connector under the air box near fuse block.

My windshield wipers wont work.


It Sounds Like, Either The Arms Are Loose ,If You Can Hear Something Moving Behind The Dash,
Or The Linkages Are Seized ,If The Motor Just Hums No Movement Heard,In Which Case Try Spraying Q 20 On The Linkage And Try Moving The Wiper Arms By Hand To Get It Going Again,
If Not The Motor May Just Be Burn;t Out.

Hi, the rear windscreen wiper on my 2003 VW POLO has just stopped working. Can you help? Cheers Emma. (For some reason it wouldn't let me select polo from the pick list for VW cars.)


The most common reason for this is a blown fuse, so using your vehicle owners book locate and check the fuse first. (if you don't have one then buy a Haynes manual for your car, the cost will pay for itself with the first repair you do). Modern automotive fuses not only have the current rating clearly marked numerically, but are colour coded and the fuses are designed so that you can easily see if they're blown when you pull them out to check. Most modern vehicle fuseboxes have a few spare fuses included and often have a small plastic tool to assist with pulling them out.

Normally a blown fuse needs further investigation as they should only fail if there's been a problem which would otherwise cause fire or other damage, but if wipers are operated inappropriately then it can cause enough load to blow the fuse. Sometimes the wiper spindles can become worn allowing water to get in and corrode the internal parts; this will cause the spindles to bind or even seize up and also cause the wiper motor to draw sufficient current to blow the fuse.

Inappropriate use includes operating the wipers when the screen is dry, trying to use them to clear snow, ice or debris, operating them if the blades or arms are damaged.

If your problem turns out to be more than a straightforward blown fuse then please add a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you more specific advice. If my answer has solved your problem then please return the favour by rating my answer.

Slow wipers


I had this problem two years ago on my 2000 Audi A4. First you must diagnose this problem. 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 running at Audi. 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 in reverse order. Please Rate my Response! Thanks!

My wipers are very slow on all speeds and keep sticking


Common problem with Golf, the wiper linkages are partially seized on the spinldes. The spindles are the rods that stick up out through the plastic panel at the bottom of the windscreen and the wiper arms connect to them.
Disconnect the wiper linkage from the motor and try manually moving them but I think you will find that they are seized. You will need to completely remove the linkage assembly and clamp it in a vice and use a lubricant spray oil to work into the spindles. Either that or fit a new or good second hand linkage

The windscreen wipers on my ford galaxy won't work. sometimes they come on and sometimes they don't. and when they do come on it can take the whole journey for them to go once fully.


there is a bush on the rotor arm and it can sieze up .you need to strip it down and release the wiper arm ,then put plenty of WD40 on.its fiddly getting at the motor and other parts,but try this befor getting a new motor £350 +. worked for me.once freed switch them on periodically.

Refitting windscreen wiper linkage


Good evening Kah2110,

I assume you have replaced the linkage by now and all is fine?

I have freed a sticking spindle (driver side) but now find I can't seem to get the wipers arms positioned properly - did you find that there is a sequence/procedure to follow?

Many thanks

Please reply to gharborough@aol.com and not this email addresss.

Many thanks
