Question about Lexus ES 330

1 Answer

I have a customer with a Lexus ES330. He asked how to fully retract the windshield wipers. Unfortunately he did not have the vehicle with him when he stopped by. He claims there is some sort of lever at or near the wiper arms, I have no idea. Does anyone know what he is talking about? Thanks in advance!!

My 2007 h3 hummer starts and when i put in gear it dies and the wipers turn on, the wiper wont shut off for several minutes then car restarts after they stop car will restart can take several attempts


Your best bet , take it to a dealer . The wipers are controlled by the BCM - body control module .
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Body control module (BCM)
• Wiper micro relay
• Wiper 2 relay
• Wiper diode
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield washer pump
• Windshield washer nozzles
• Windshield washer solvent container
• Windshield wiper arm and blade assemblies
• Windshield wiper transmission
• WIP/WASH 10A fuse
• WIPER 25A fuse

Testing for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's should be the first step in diagnostic process . No part store can check code's in BCM.
You have no idea of the complexity of the electronic's on your vehicle.
Moving the ignition switch to the START position signals the body control module (BCM) that engine crank has been requested. The BCM verifies that theft is not active and sends a serial data message to the powertrain control module (PCM) requesting engine start. The BCM also energizes the RUN/CRANK RELAY. When the RUN/CRANK RELAY switch side closes, and the vehicle is in Park/Neutral or with the clutch fully depressed, if equipped, supply voltage is applied to the PCM CNTRL relay coil. The PCM verifies the transmission is in Park/Neutral or if the clutch is fully depressed, if equipped. The PCM will then ground the control circuit of the PCM CNTRL relay, closing the switch suppling voltage to the starter solenoid. On some vehicles the starter will continue to crank the engine with the key released until it starts, the crank command has timed out to prevent excessive heat build up in the starter circuitry or the PCM receives an engine run flag.

Lexus es330 engine check in view because i have changed fuel filter


this vehicle may be due for a service.

slow starting in colder weather can be due to many issues. such as dirty or wet ignition sytem or low battery charge.
if you live in colder climate you may need to change your oil to a thinner one for cold tempretures.

also check that exaust pipe is not blocked, air filter is clean and fuel filter is not blocked.


I hope this was useful.

How do I replace the front windshield wiper blades on a Lexus 2004 RX330?


Go to auto parts store and ask for wiper blades for your specific car. I believe there 19". The install procedure is on the back of the package. It's a 5 minute job at most.

The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

What happens when you activate the washers?

go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

05 Lexus ES330 - Ashtray door wont open


Use a flat tip screwdriver to pry-back the door a little while shinning a flashlight into the ashtray, use another flat customized piece of metal or coat hanger to pry the pack of gum loose as the door opens. You'll find the gum pack or item has wedged the door shut - when loosened the door will open.

Retracting wiper blades lexus es 330 2004


I am the owner of a 2004 ES330 and the answer by 240 CPR is totally wrong. If you look in your owners manual on how to replace the wiper blades you'll find that all need to do is push down firmly on the wiper arm and it'll snap back down where it belongs.
