a professional manual is best everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional manual available...in the reference section, you'll have to make copies of the important sections...good luck :)
it is possible
The advantage to interval wipers is increased safety if you experience fog or mist in your area. You can set the wipers up to wipe intermittently without having to remove your hands from the steering wheel
The governor for the wipers is located near the fuse box. It is wired to the harness going to the wiper switch.
convert the electrical resistance signal from wiper switch to electrival power to wiper motor (for delay wipers)
remove the wipers, turn on wiper switch, turn off switch, reinstall wipers @ bottom position torque nuts enough to secure the arm. turn on switch readjust as needed.
A bad relay switch will cause the windshield wipers to not turn off. Replace the relay switch and the windshield wipers should turn off.
It is most likely the wiper stalk/switch. Try pulling the fuse for the wipers. If that stops them, then it is the stalk/switch.
I'll answer my own question FYI. I replaced the wiper motor and the problem is fixed.
It sounds like the switch has gone bad allowing the wipers to run constantly. Have the windshield wiper switch replaced.
There is no button to operate the headlight wipers. The headlights washers and wipers are activated along with the windshield wipers when you use the windshield washer by pulling the wiper switch towards you.
The wiper motor has a switch inside of it. When they are turned off and the wipers go to the down position it trips the switch in the motor that tells the computer they are in the down position. If that switch in the motor is faulty, the wipers are repositioning until the switch is tripped to the off position. THE FIX.... Replace the wiper motor.
turn the switch on
switch them on
Wiper motors have an internal switch that keeps the wipers running after you turn them off. The switch stays active until the wipers get to the "PARK" position and if the drivers wiper switch is off, then the wiper motor is turned off internally. I suspect the internal switch has failed. Unfortunately the switch cannot be easily replaced. Fortunately, wiper motors are not terribly expensive.
Use the same switch for the front wipers. Once the front wipers are switched on, the rear wiper will come on as well. However, a reverse twist of the switch would turn on just the rear wiper.
Theer is probably a fuse for "wipers" in the fuse box or there is probably a plug that goes into your wiper motor; pull that plug and no wipers! If you want to disable only the auto sensing wipers part(what ever that is) Go buy a Haynes Auto Repair manual for your car. Maybe it's in there.
The wiper switch on the ParkAvenue could be bad. Or, the intermittent relay for the wipers could be stuck, causing the wipers to run.
In what make and model vehicle?
My wipers come on when the turn signal is used - Ford recommends replacing a revised mulifunction switch (turn signal switch)
Self switch wipers switch off at a pre-set point regardless of when the driver turns the wipers off Self parking is a development of this and moves the wipers below the screen when not in use. This improves vehicle aerodynamics & reduces injuries to pedestrians For more info try Fundamentals of Motor Vehicle Technology Book 3 or Bosch Automotive Electrics / Automotive Electronics
It is the turn signal switch combined with the head lights, wipers, etc.
perhaps the wiper switch is broken and needs to be replaced.-- The delay part of the Switch.
Bad turn signal switch probably.
check the wiper fuse. then check the switch, then check the wiper motor
The motor needs to be replaced. There is a "switch" in the motor that "parks" the wipers. This happens when current is removed from the motor. Your "switch" in the motor is not allowing this to happen. Replace the motor.
