It depends on where they broke and if they were subjected to undue stress from ice etc.

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.

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.

Bad switch? stalk bad wiper motor? bad low speed winding

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.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

I have found that if you put rainex on the windshield everytime you change your oil you will not have that problem.

User Avatar

I would start with testing the "park" switch inside the cover of the windshield wiper motor.

Check to see if you are getting power to the wiper motor. If you are it is likely the FUSE, but if that's already been checked it SHOULD either be, the wiper motor or the switch, I would guess the motor.

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

if it is a new style s10 they had a common problem of the wiper control module going bad and intermittenly quiting. the module is located underneath the wiper motor cover.

a bad fuse, control module (that little thing you use to turn on your wipers), or the windshield wiper motor is bad.
