You first pull the wiper motor fuse located on the drivers side under the dash. This will keep your blades from distracting you while you drive. The part that has to be changed is called the Wiper Switch Assembly. The part number is 35256-SR3-G21 and can be purchased around 65 bucks at your local auto parts store. It would be best to have a repair manual because the (SRS) needs to be disabled. The Haynes Manual gives you step by step instructions with detailed illustrations for a smoother removal and installation.

If windshield wipers are stuck in position and won't move, I would say that the windshield wiper motor needs replacing. This happened to me last year.

If the motor is turning, but the wipers are not moving, then you have a broken or disconnected linkage.

A bad pulse board or window wiper motor can cause your wipers to stay in the "up" position.

Turn the wipers off, pull the wiper arm off, and replace it in the correct down position.

There is no "reset" in the wiper motor. If your wipers do not park, it is likely your wiper motor parking contact or cam is broken. Try running the wipers with the key in the "ON" position, then turn the wipers off using their switch while they are up on the windshield. They should park themselves at the bottom. The good news is a wiper motor is pretty cheap at a junkyard, and not too hard to replace.

When purchasing windshield wipers that work intermittently, they can be any windshield wipers that are the correct size. The ability to work intermittently is a wiring/fuse ordeal. This does not play a part in the selection of windshield wipers that you choose from.

The windshield wipers go back in forth if you now now what i mean

A bad relay switch will cause the windshield wipers to not turn off. Replace the relay switch and the windshield wipers should turn off.

This happens sometimes. Try pressing the chrom button to release windshield washer fluid. The wipers will wipe the windshield 4-5 times and should recede to their correct resting position on their own.

The windshield wipers were invented to wipe things off your car so you can see

Wiper motors have an internal switch that keeps the wiper running until it gets to the "park" position. Sometimes the internal switch fails and the wipers keep running, never sensing the park position. When that happens, you'll need to replace the wiper motor.

unplug the wiper motor under your hook, its located at the back of the engine compartment on the passenger side

The windshield wipers are not automatic... the lever that controls the wipers have three positions and you will have to pull the lever down to the off position. The position below off is for mist. If you pull the lever to that position and let it go, the lever will go back to the off position.

Mary Anderson, an American, is credited with having invented the windshield wiper in 1903. Early windshield wipers were operated manually.

On the back of the engine right below the windshield wipers

that switch does not exist. It simply is activated when you spray your windshield washer fluid onto the windshield. Your headlight switch has to be on. I know your lights are always on, however the wipers for your headlights will only activated if the headlight switch is in the on position.

Windshield wipers should be replaced every 6,000 miles. The windshield wipers should be any of the following sizes: 93-01, 94, 95, or 96.
