What if your rear defroster and rear wipers no longer work in your 97 4runner could this be a fuse problem?

Had the same problem. Make sure the rear window is all the way up. This is probably a safety feature? Your wipers and rear defroster should work.

if there is a lot of snow or ice on these vents located at the bottom of the wind shield under the wipers that could be the problem if you live in a cold environment.

There's a thing called windshield wipers. Try 'em sometime! Use the defroster.

The 2002 Toyota 4Runner takes a special rear wiper you have to purchase at the dealer. When purchasing the part, ask for the replacement procedure. Unfortunately, this vehicle doesn't have one of the 13 universal rear wipers most vehicles have. You can however purchase aftermarket wiper blades for the front wipers. See the Sources and Related Links section below.

Follow the transmission dipstick which is located just below your right windshield wipers in the engine bay. You should see a pan with a 10mm bolt ref. to auto trans 1999 toyota 4runner

Most likely the wipers themselves cannot be fixed, because it's probably not the problem, usually the transmission that controls them would be the problem.

A problem we found was that the nut holding the wiper in place had come lose all we had to do was tighten the nut and the wipers worked

User Avatar

usually it would be cable that conects the wipers to the controls, you might have your best bet on electrical too

User Avatar

probably have a bad ground connection and the electrical signal to the gauge is affected when the accessories are on. check ground on battery, motor, and firewall.

I just took my 97 sebring convertable in for no turn signals, wipers, rear defroster and radio. They replaced the ignition switch and now everthing works.

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.

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.

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

First you have to diagnose what the problem is before you can fix it.

There's a wire in the windshield where the wipers rest that heats up like a rear window defroster. It comes on automaticly when the outside temp drops below 40deg.

I have the same exact problem , i have a 1998 tiburon and the wipers are not moving.. i think it might be the wiper motor, I will buy one and see if that's the issue
