I have a 98 wrangler and am having same problem. I was told by service mgr. at the dealer that it is probably the wiper motor. To buy just the part which now includes a transmission costs just abit over $300 from the dealer. Although they told me rebuilts are available for about $100. Hope this helps.

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

Only one wiper arm works on an s10 2001 what could be the problem?

If only one wiper is working then you have a linkage problem. There is an arm that runs from one side to the other. It has bushings that wear out. You can also have a stripped spline where the wiper arm hooks up.

Check the fuse. If the rear wiper fuse is good then it could be a wiring problem. Check the wires to the rear hatch, then check the motor itself.

Why would the windshield wiper fuse blow as soon as the ignition switch is turned on in a 1993 Mazda 626 dx and how can this be fixed?

try disconnecting the wiper motor if problem still happens disconnect the wiper switch, if that does'nt work check your wiper control box, a fuse will only blow if there is too much current drawing on it or dead short to earth. try and follow the wires back from the wiper motor check for any damaged wires

Why want front wipers work and fuses are good washer works also on 2002 GMC Envoy?

Check with your dealership - there was a recall issued regarding the windshield wipers. They could get water in wiper motor when it rained or when the car was washed and cause the wipers not to function properly. I had an 02 with the same problem. The problem stopped after recall was fixed.

Windshield wipers not working 1998 ford f-150?

Why would the wipers on a 95 Blazer stop working and then maybe a little while later they will start working again?

It has a circuit bereaker in the motor which can be weak or the linkage and transmissions can cause unusual drag on the motor. Have it checked out, I had the same problem on a GMC wiper motor of similar vintage. Solved with adding a specific ground wire from the wiper motor houseing to the frame. I have a 1997 Blazer that had the same problem. There was a recall on the wiper circuit board that fixed the problem. You may want to try if the recall was for your year of truck also.Jeff

Intermittent wipers dont work 03' silhouette They work on high speed no other speed will work As soon as I take it off of the high speed the wipers will stop and not park Fuse is fine help?

The wiper motor can be replaced reasonably easy, however your particular problem is usually caused by the circuit board that controls the wiper motor and the delay cycles, retraction, etc. The board is also quite cheaper than the entire wiper motor. It is also called a wiper pulse or relay board and can be found online from around $25 and up. The electronic board plugs into the wiper motor, and the electric cable plugs into the circuit board.
