Check your fuse compartment under hood. Fuse 3 & 12 for windshield wipers and washers. More than likely you've overloaded the wiper motor causing a blown fuse.

The relay for these should be in the motor assembly itself. If there is no power getting to the motor, replace the switch on the column. This should rectify the issue. I have a manual for a 406 if that may be of some assistamce to you.

Windshield wipers stopped working with heavy snow cover

The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.

Toyota Corolla 1993:\r\nMy windscreen wipers don't work, all of a sudden they started to die. I replaced the windscreen wiper motor and I tried to attach it to the power socket and it did work but when...

It is possible that you tightened the bolts for the arms themselves to much and it is to much resistance for the motor. Try loosening the bolts a bit and see if that helps. Aside from that make sure that you are getting a full 12V to the plug by testing it with a multimeter for DC Voltage. Hope this helps you.

I have a 1999 Cadillac deville wipers spotted working.

hi this sounds like the linkage has either snapped or has simply come off the ball joint if you can still hear your wiper motor running this will be it, they are a bit awkward to get to but normally a simple repair. lift your hood ( sorry ime from uk excues me for wrong use of parts lol) and look near windscreen area where the wipers are . look into the gaps vent gaps you will see the linkage put wipers on and see if there is any movment in there, if not then it will be that...hope this sorta helps

My front windscreen wipers stopped working last week in the snow. now its thawed out they still dont work - my car is a renault secnic

check the wiper fuse.
the wiper motor has 3 or 4 wires on it,one is ground and the others make it operate the different speeds.
putting direct power to the motor will tell you if it is good.

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
