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.
Could be he wiper motter or the fuse.
We had that problem and brought it in today to get fixed. The problem was the motor overheated.
Problem may be in the wiper motor, some GM cars have a wiper control module that goes bad, there was a recall on them. I don't recall if the Caviliar was one of those or not.
Things can cause this problem. The wiper motor itself or the wiper control module may be bad. Also the switch or bad wiring. It is a process of elimination.
could be the switch the relay the fuse or the motor
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
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.
The wiper linkage is bad. Or the wiper arm stud bushings (where the arms attach to the cowl) are rotted out.
you havn't taken it to the mechanic yet.
Need to know if you have a single speed or two speed wiper motor.
I have fixed several of these. However, you will have to give a little more detail so we know what the actual problem is.
If the windshield wipers are not working on a 1990 Chevy Lumina, the problem could be with the wiper motor, the wiper motor relay, or a fuse. The least expensive fix to this problem will be replacing the fuse if it is blown.
you could try a new wiper blade motor. yours has probally shorted out or there may just be a loose wire both could cause this problem..
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.
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
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.
Well on the wiper arm at the base there is a cover that hides a bolt, check make sure its tight, also the splines are in good condition.
If the windshield wipers are not working in a 1998 Ford F150, the cause could be a blown fuse. There could also be a problem with the vacuum hoses connected to the wiper motor or the wiper motor itself.
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
There is no relay for this wiper motor. A PCB on the motor handles speed and intermitment changes.
There are a number of reasons why the wiper blades my fail to shut off. This mainly a problem with the wiring system or malfunction of the wiper sensors.Ê
Wiper linkage broken or disconnected? Bad wiper transmission? Wiper Bushing. I have an '03. The wipers are crap! One goes out, once fixed-BAM...other one stops!!
Check for blown fuse, lift wipers off windscreen, see if they move at all. Wiper motor dhas passed on.
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.
hey i have the same problem, im not sure what it is, my slow and fast wipers dont work but my middle speed does. Im guessing it has something to do with a circuit board dealing with the switches. If someone could answer this it would be great.
