this happend to me a while back.....the linkage from your wiper blades to the wiper motor might have got disconnected its a very quick fix....depending on were it is in your car (mines was under the screen were the windshild end your have to take off that screen and the screen underneath) than you should be bale to see the linkage and if one of them is off neither wiper blade will work alls you have to do it snap the joints back together took me no more than 10 minutes the way to tell if this is the problem move both wipers with your hand and if one moves really weird and the other one doesn't is the linkage chances are its the linkage

I just had a situation where the wipers were intermittent and then stopped all together. First, it could be the wiper control switch. (Dealership wants $346.00.) RockAuto ($100.00 brand spanking new.) In my case it wasn't the switch. 2. The wiper drive motor and control module. I bought a rebuilt motor and control module from RockAuto. (+$100.00) I inspected the old unit and found that the control module was cooked. (Electronic components black and very stinky!) The control module is often called a "wiper motor pulse board" (electronic circuit board). It can be had online for about $30.00. If you are not mechanically inclined you might not want to attempt to disassemble the wiper assembly by yourself. You will need a special tool to remove the wiper arms. The job is a chore and you have to know what your doing on reassembly, particularly the motor crank arm assembly has to be in the park position when assembled on the motor transmission shaft. (I recommend buying the replacement motor because everything is factory sealed. If you change just the board and don't seal it corerectly YOU WILL HAVE PROBLEMS! Water and electricity don't mix well.

Have you checked the fuses for the wipers? It may be that simple.

could be a ground problem. Try replaceing those rubber mounted groments

Normally its a fuse. Check your owner's manual to find where the fuses are and which one is related to the wipers.

Generally, if the motor is working on windshield wipers, the problem is electrical. Check the fuses and the wiring to see if something needs replaced.

User Avatar

try replacing the windshield wiper moter, and check for damaged wireing that could be causeing a short and blowing fuses.

The fuses in a Toyota Corolla 2000 are for various components of the car. For instance, the fuses power the windshield wipers, the radio, the power windows, and the power seats.

Could be a bad controller or multiple blown fuses. Check the fuses first. I had a 95 Ford Ranger that had a bad controller and the wipers, interior lights, fuel gage, and temperature gauge would all act up randomly.

Check your fuses. See owner's manual for location and assignment of fuses.

User Avatar

It is located in your fuse box. Check the plate you remove to get to the fuses and check there and it will tell you the one for the wipers

User Avatar

Consult your owner's manual for the location and identification of fuses.

User Avatar

Most likely fuse is out. Check owner's manual for location and identification of fuses. If not, check wiper motor, linkage and spindles.

User Avatar

If your windshield wipers still aren't working after replacing them and checking the fuses, you may need to check the electrical wiring. This is best done by a certified auto mechanic.

User Avatar

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.

Automobile fuses are quite easy to change. The fuses simply lift out and plug in. You can remove the fuse with a fuse puller or needle nose pliers.

The fuse box is located in the car underneath the dash on the drivers side. There is a small cover that you simply pull down and it will release. All fuses are listed on the inside of this cover & yes, the wipers are one of the fuses.

Are the electronically not working or just not performing correctly? If electronically, I'd check your fuses. The best place to locate and identify your fuses is in your owner's manual. If the wipers are streaking or something like that, make sure they are clicked all the way on and not binding.

I have a 96 blazer and the fuses are located behind a panel just inside the drivers side door on the end of the dash..

Windshield wipers, 20A means 20 amp fuse. 20amp fuses are yellow in color
