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.
where is the wiper switch located on a 85 el camino w/pulse wipers,the car has tilt wheel
It may be due to a broken linkage.
Check linkage first and stripped or loose wiper arm on spindle.
If the rear window is not fully closed the rear wiper will not operate.
I'm figuring that this is the same as my 1999 town and country, and I just replaced the wiper switch.. It was easy, and it cost 76.00, and it also had NO effect on the operation of the delay in the wipers. Incidentally, I was trying to fix the delay - What my vehicle does is the delay will work about 4 times, then the wipers "jump" slightly, and the delay no longer works. you have to cycle the wiper switch on and off to get them to go again. Good luck!
a blown fuse.
Its your linkage, not your motor.
In my experience it is rarely the wiper motor at fault, it is always a faulty pulse board. Your local auto parts store can sell you an aftermarket pulse board that will outlast the GM original. The pulse board can be easily changed without removing the wiper motor from the vehicle.
you need to put a new ground on the wiper motor
The wiper motor is well overdue servicing/replacement. The wiper delay works with the self parking contacts and it sounds that they are fouled/worn out. The slow running would suggest worn motor brushes/motor and gearbox bearings/drive rods and bushes. If you can't service the motor yourself, you should be able to pick one up from a breakers or take to an auto electrician who will refurbish or provide an exchange one
Probably a bad bearing in the wiper motor.
Either the wiper arm is stripped out or the linkage under the cowl panel has come undone.
There are several things that can cause your windshield wipers not to work. The most common cause is a malfunctioning windshield wiper motor.
The wiper motor on a 1992 Chrysler LeBaron won't work if the motor has seized up or the fuse has blown. The switch inside the cabin or the wiring can also come loose and cause this problem.
if its the driver wiper that doesn't work, its probably the control rod broken. the passengers wiper is driven by the motor, the drivers by the linkage from the passengers wiper mechanism
It has to be the switch. It is what controls the power to the wiper motor. If the switch is fried again I would check that the relay (or that the fuse is the right amperage) has been fried in the open position somehow. This would allow unchecked voltage to fry its way through your switch to power the motor. I hope this helps you some.
The wiper circuit that controls (in this case that opens the ground circuit of the motor)the motor is staying closed to ground...it needs to be open when in delay mode...so that the delay circuit can control the opening and closing to ground. OR the delay circuit has an open circuit...burned up capacitor, relay, etc. Or it could be a stuck parking switch...which should open on in park mode...however the wipers would stay on until you turned off the wiper switch. Also, old cars up to 1980 or so...used ground type switches whereas new cars use powered switches and relays to latch the motor to ground.
Check TSB 08-31-98A. My multi function switch had to be replaced. (Part # 5012382-AA)
escape 01 rear wiper dosen't work
Your wiper arms that run from the wiper motor to the windshield wipers may be binding and need to be replaced
If the passenger wiper works, either the drivers side wiper arm or the windshield wiper transmission is defective. The linkages that work the wiper arms is called a transmission.
the wiper motor is a basicly a relay switch with low mwdium and high and everything but high is burned out and if it works on high and shuts off you need a new wiper motor.
In many cars, there is only a single wiper motor. One wiper arm is attached directly to the wiper motor and the other through a linkage. If one is working, the motor is operating but the connection to the other may be broken.
Bad switch? stalk bad wiper motor? bad low speed winding
