my first quess is that when the glass is dry, the friction caused by the dry glass and the blade actually slows the blade down enough so that it doesn't skip, skip, skip. kinda like bouncing from one spot to another. when your windshield is wet; however, the friction is less and the wiper motor makes the blade move faster. if the tension on the blade is too high, the blade will stick, release, stick, release, etc. thus causing a "Squeak" or sputter. May want to try loosening up the tension spring just a hair, then spray your sheld with the hose and try it until the blades work just right. You may also just need new blades. should be about $40 for a good complete set.
Because the windshield wiper is on.
Because they are broken.
If your windshield wipers are not working, you should check your owners manual. It could be a fuse or another easy fix.
Well, I would recommend taking the windshield wipers off, and then try re-attaching it to the windshield. However, there is also the option of checking to see if the attachment is attached properly in the first place.
Fuse or windshield wiper motor.
Windshield wipers are most commonly used on cars when it is raining or hailing outside. The windshield wipers help push the water or ice away from the windshield so that the driver can see.

I use to put cardboard on the glass under the wipers, leaving the wipers laying on the cardboard to hold it in place. Unless it is raining, the cardboard does not get soggy, and does not freeze to the windshield and the wipers do not freeze to the cardboard. I lived in PA for 38 years so I have dealt with ice and snow. Then I wised up and moved here to Arizona. 70 degrees today..................sorry to tell you! You could also put a sheet of plastic between the wipers and windshield. You have to start with a dry windshield and wipers so the plastic or cardboard does not freeze to either.
Normally its a fuse. Check your owner's manual to find where the fuses are and which one is related to the wipers.
Yes, that would be the first thing I would look at.
Generally, if the motor is working on windshield wipers, the problem is electrical. Check the fuses and the wiring to see if something needs replaced.
Blown fuse would be my first guess.
Many newer cars have automatic windshield wipers. These work with a rain sensor, usually mounted near the rear view mirror. The sensor uses infrared light to sense moisture- droplets scatter light, and the when enough light is scattered, the sensor decides that it's raining. It then signals for the wipers to come on. Dirt can also fool the sensor into turning the wipers on.
because you used too much washing your windshield with your windshield wipers My best guess would be a cracked hose or loose connection at the bottom.
I have found that if you put rainex on the windshield everytime you change your oil you will not have that problem.
I would start with testing the "park" switch inside the cover of the windshield wiper motor.
Problem with multifunction switch in steering column
most likely the fuse is blown
a dead battery
My wipers would only work on high. we replaced the signal lever which works the wipers too. i did get my mechanic to do it because it was'nt as easy as the parts store said it was. try replaceing the wiper pulse relay board under driver side dashboard
It depends on where they broke and if they were subjected to undue stress from ice etc.
Blown fuse or bad wiper motor.
