The motor is going to need replacing. I found a replacement on eBay and did it myself. You have to raise the gate and take off the rear panel to access it. I had to use my old bracket because the replacement models' was different but the motor mounted to my old bracket just fine. Just search Ford Expedition rear wiper motor on eBay. I got mine for about $50 new.
Bent or misinstalled wiper arms.
There are several things that can cause your 2003 or Expedition to misfire. The most common cause is a plugged catalytic converter.
Check linkage first and stripped or loose wiper arm on spindle.
The delay system may not have anything to do with the switch. It depends on the manufacturer but the delay system maybe part of the wiper motor assembly...or the delay is sometimes located in a separate module located separately from the control switch.
If the rear window is not fully closed the rear wiper will not operate.
One possibility is your wiper motor is bad. Suggestion- replace it.
In relation to the washer fluid, check if the fluid tube is not twisted or blocked in anyway.
Stripped spindle/splines, linkage issues.
I have a 2000 olds alero and the signal light only work sometimes, What would cause that?
a blown fuse.
It may be due to a broken linkage.
Replace the wiper circuit board. It went bad on both of our blazers. It isn't too expensive. Pretty easy to get to too.
Does it have a mist feature where it swipes once when you start the vehicle? If so, most of the time that can be turned off. Check your manual. See sources and related links below for wiper blade information.
I had the same problem with my 2005 ford expedition... it was my chamshaft....... The repair is expensive... But it fixed the problem......
Yes, it has happened to me with my 2007 Ford Expedition. If the wiper is siezed in a position other than the normally off position, the motor will continue to strain to return to the off position. If this happens to you, make sure the rear wiper is turned off, then open the glass in the rear liftgate. This will disengage the motor from the wiper, and the motor should rotate counterclockwise to the off position. If the rear wiper is not too siezed, you should be able to manually move the wiper back to its off position before closing the rear glass. This will align the wiper drive pin on the inside of the glass with the drive slot in the motor. These need to be aligned to be able to close the glass. The faulty wiper arm assembly will likely need replacing.
Fuse or windshield wiper motor.
An Electrical Short Cut somewhere would cause it to blow the fuse. A pinch wire would ground the system, and cause a shortcut.
Blown fuse or bad wiper motor.
Bad fuel filter or clogged fuel injectors
if you have overdrive in that car it means that your about to go into overdrive
On my 2003 Chevy suburban the wiper blades don't stop when you turn off the switch sometimes, i would appreciate any help at all
could be several things, I would start with the dimmer switch.
in this case, the positioning switch in the wiper motor is out of order.
this would cause a tsunami
Its your linkage, not your motor.
