Having windshield wiper/washer problems? Here are some more common problems.

  • Motor:
The wiper motor is commonly replaced and was often not the problem. Don't replace the motor yet. maybe it's not the motor. It could be a fuse or something at the wiper switch. The wiper motor has two windings, fast and slow. The wiper switch sends a ground signal to each motor winding. More often, there are problems with the relay, or at the wiper switch, or in the cable to the motor.
  • Windshield Washer:
Don't be too quick to replace the washer pump. The problem is often just a clog in the sprayer heads. You can clean out the sprayer holes with a needle, some have two holes, so look closely. Hope this helps.

If your wipers will not turn off then it most certainly is not a wiper motor problemboth of your problems sound like a switch problem

Fuse blows everytime I attempt to use the washer fluid.


really?! the water pump?! the water pump has nothing to do with your wipers it is part of the COOLING system. as for your issue...it could be a short in the wiper/signal arm in the steering column, or it could be the motor in your washer fluid bottle. the motor is what pushes the fluid through to your windshield and if its gone bad it will blow your fuses as well. i would start with the washer fluid reservoir motor and go from there

I have 2002 ford escape and the windshield wipers wont work what could be the problem


Fuses, disconnected power, or a bad wiper motor - check the connections on the wiper motor - make sure wires are not worn and frayed so there is a good solid connection - check you fuse block the fuses should be identified in the manual or on the fuse panel door. If neither of those are the issue go to AutoZone and ask for current check on the wiper motor

2002 intrigue wipers / washer dont work


It can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.

Do you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function.If yes then fuse is ok,but issue is wiper motor.
If no movement at all and no noise then its blown fuse or shorted/loose wiper control wiring:-----
For complete troubleshooting i suggest you few helpful links with accurate solutions.

Windshield washer fluid not spraying


Try standing outside of the vehicle and having someone press the "juice" button and listen to see if the motor is trying to spray. If it is....check to to see if you have contaminents in the windshield wiper fluid reservoir.
