I once had a wiper problem with my 1992 Taurus and it turned out to be the wiper control module. There is a web site that tells you how to check the entire wiper system from the fuse block through the module, steering column switch and motor using a multimeter. I was able to trace my problem down and repair it using the instructions from this web page; I'm looking for it now but can't locate it. The control module is a troublesome item on these cars though you may think it is the switch on the column lever. The module is located under the dash, close to the center and can be removed by simply sliding it from it's bracket and unplugging it from the wiring harness. It is a black plastic box about 4" X 4" and about 3" thick that contains mechanical relays and will make audible clicks when moving the wiper switch through it's settings. These modules were manufactured in Brazil (I believe) and many developed intermittent broken contacts due to what is called "cold solder joints". You can actually repair these modules rather than spend $65 to replace the part. Simply look at the circuit board for dark areas where there should be smooth solder joints and resolder them. This was invauable information for me as I had tried a new motor and that didn't fix the problem. In checking the wiper module, which I found on the other side of my dashboard (in a F150 pickup), I immediately saw the cold solder joints. I reinstalled the module, but much to my dismay the wipers still didn't work. It turned out that the motor WAS bad and probably the reason the cold solder joint showed up (drawing more than normal current). Thanks to the guys above! - Pete
On my 1992 Geo Metro hatchback, the windshield wiper switch is on the right hand side of the steering column, opposite the turn signal switch. Please be advised that this switch handle breaks off very easily and you have to buy the whole combo switch (turn signal, flasher switch and wiper switch).
In the switch
there is a cover behind the switch stalk clip off then you will see the plug from the wiper switch stalk unplug then to remove switch turn switch and pull out stalk switch
It is quite easy to install the 1992 Chevy Lumina brake light switch. The brake light switch simply plugs in and out.
The 1992 Ford Taurus wiper blade sizes are 20" wiper blades on both sides front and a 14" or 15" rear wiper. Do not buy by length only though. See Sources and Related Links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.
It should be for the rear wiper or rear defroster. I have a 1992 (no power switch), but on the left side of my column are the fog light and rear defrost switches, and on the right is the rear wiper switch.
It's possible that the wiper switch is bad, but most likely it's the wiper motor itself. Wiper motors have an internal switch that only turns off when both the manual switch is turned off AND the wiper blade is in the park position. If the wiper motor cannot sense that it has hit the park position, it will run continuously.
if the wiper motor works when you operate the switch then the switch is doing its job the most likel cause of your problem is the wiper armature came loose and needs to be fixed or somethings hung up you need to take the wiper arm assemblys off pull the cowl off and investigate it if you have anymore problems email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sounds like switch may be defective
I have a very big sausage
The wiper motor on a 1992 Chrysler LeBaron won't work if the motor has seized up or the fuse has blown. The switch inside the cabin or the wiring can also come loose and cause this problem.
You mean the one that controls the four-way flashers? It's on top of the steering column.
Most likely it's the motor assembly. There is an internal switch that keeps the motor running until the wiper blades are in the "park" position. If the internal switch fails, the wiper will continue to run or will turn off wherever the blades are when you turn off the wipers. Either can happen when the wiper internal switch fails.
Begin by removing the retaining ring at the top of your 1992 Chevy ignition switch. The ignition switch will slide out. Remove the wiring harness from the end of the ignition switch. Reverse the process to install the new ignition switch.
how do you change wiper motor on e250 1992 van
The 1992 Saturn wiper motor is located on the firewall in the engine compartment. The wiper motor will be in the center of the firewall.
The wiper motor on that vehicle has an internal switch that keeps the wiper after you turn it off, until the wiper blade is in the park position. If that switch has failed, the wiper will continue to run. It's a common failure for older wiper motors and you'll need to replace the motor, but they are available as an after market item so you can purchase one at a local auto parts retailer.
It really needs to be diagnoised since it can be a wire or the ignition switch itself.

First remove the steering wheel, remove the torx screws and remove the house, remove the signal switch and the wiper switch, remove the torx screws and?æremove the ignition switch. Put in the new switch and replace everything in reverse.?æ
The 1992 Ford Taurus is not equipped with a knock sensor. The Ford Motor Company has been producing the Taurus since 1985.
The 1992 Ford Crown Victoria has the most common U-Hook wiper blade arm attachments. You press a button or tab and pull the wiper blade out of the hook. See Hook Arm Attachment Videos below...its a very easy install.
Have you checked to make sure the fuse is good?
