blades? (you mean wipers dont work, right? dead wipers) you have blown fuse. no crank right, dead wipers but do head lamps work, if not , fix head lamps FIRST, they have full power at all times. even keys in pockets.
If the motor is running then the fuse shouldnt be the problem, iv had problems in the past where the tensioning spring that keeps the blade against the window is too tight and has seized the wiper, turn on the wipers and lift the wipers gently and drop them back into place a few times, a few gentle nudges wont hurt, Hope this helps, Sion.
i`m not sure what you mean by it not working properly i assume that you mean it goes back and forth like the passenger side, but it doesn`t clean the window and you put the blade on the arm correctly then the wiper may be damaged and you will have to replace the wiper blade.check and compare the installation of the driver`s side to the passenger side wiper and correct the installation of the blade
the linkage between the wiper motor and the wiper arms needs to be replaced. the stud on the one side is stripped and that is why it doesn't work as it should. this happens usually when the wipers are left on in the winter with the blades freezing to the windsheild. turn on the car with frozen blades tends to strip out the teeth holding the wiper arms onto the linkage
This is a fairly simple job.
#1 Pull the wiper arm away from the vehicle.
#2 Turn the blade 90 degrees so that the blade and the arm make a 'capital T' shape.
#3 Pull the blade straight off of the arm.
#4 Install the new wiper blade so that it forms a ' T ' with the arm.
#5 Turn the blade back to the normal position in line with the arm.
#6 Ease the wiper arm and blade back against the windshield.
#7 You are done. Good luck
