Seriously? You should replace the motor. It is going bad. Nothing else about it except replacing the motor assembly.

Check Relay connection pins,check for dirty fuse, connect a direct power supply from a 2 nd battery, to the correct Pos/Neg. wiper motor terminals. If the Motor is good, it will energise immediately, if not, you got your answer.

Best of Luck.
Regards, DT

2004, XC70 D5 aut. Rear wiper needs a push from time to time. I did not replace the motor. When the motor eventually works, let it stay on for some time. I have an idea, that the problem is caused by little use and humidity. So let therear wiper do its work for some time, and then observe.. Do not change the motor immediately. For me, the problem is not taht present anymore.

My rear power window is stuck open.. The button on the headliner still opens and closes the right side window but the left on will not shut. Also the rear wiper motor quit working..


if you have already checked your fuses and since the button on the door will not open or close the window and the driver's switch will not open or close the window either then chances are that the window regulator motor is bad. take the door panel off and unhook the wire to the motor using a voltage meter push the button and see if you get 12 volts if you do replace the window regulator motor. you may have to switch out the whole window regulator. do the same with the rear wiper motor take the back panel off and remove the wire from the motor connect your voltage meter to the motor and turn on the rear wiper it may be intermitting so wait a minit and see if you have voltage if so replace the motor. if not replace the switch.

Windshield wipers working on low speed only and windshield washer not working intermitant wipe is working rear wiper/washer is working


You may want to check the switch of the wiper if there are loose connections or it may need cleaning. If that checks out ok, you may want to proceed to check the relay if it is faulty or the connection is loose. Otherwise inspect the wiper motor and the assembly for physical signs of damages.

Windshield wipers don't work


Ok, this is a steering column issue. The wiring needs to be replaced. Shouldn't cost much at all. also, the external switch may have issues as well but, i suggest you re wire your steering column to fix this problem.

You have a motor for the front and rear washer. Check the fuses. If the intermitted wipers does not work, there is a relay under the dash near the steering colum that needs to be replaced.

Cruise Control, intermitent wipers acting up.


More then likely, the switch arm will have to be replaced, everything that contyrols your wipers and cruise are built into that left arm.

I hope this helps you.
