SOURCE: Wipers only work on fast

The common way of controlling wiper speed is to use a 'tapped' resistor that supplies reduced voltage to the wiper motor on all but the fast setting.
They have to dissipate a good bit of heat and are subject to failure; I think yours has done that.

SOURCE: front windshield wipers stall or work very intermittantly when on

It is likely that where the wiper arm is attached to the linkage  it is either loose or stripped.

Wiper not working ford galaxy m2


No solution sorry - mine have done exactly the same - will wipe front screen if you mess with the stalk - rear wiper works when you push the stalk forwards or backwards but no washer to either - have you found a solution? Kind regards - Andy

On a land rover discovery, windscreen wiper motor, there are 5 coloured wires. Can you tell me what each one does, ie. green -- earth brown -- constant + red -- fast blue -- slow black -- intermitant...


Ok, here are the wiring colors and functions/destinations. C0030 is the motor connector for the front windscreen.
C0030-1 - Black, runs to a Earth
C0030-2 - White/Green - Fed from the front wiper relay, via the IDM
C0030-3 - Blue/Green - Flick Wipe/Fast Wipe
C0030-4 - Green/SlateGrey - Power from Aux Relay
C0030-5 - Red/Green - Looks to be a speed control connection.

It's hard to tell to be honest, you'd really need to sit down with RAVE and the electrical circuit diagram and the operation description to make head or tail of it.

Window wiper problem


Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.
