Windscreen Wiper / switch problem
Posted 19 July 2011 - 01:57 PM
When hitting the wiper stalk down, so that the wipers do one single right to left motion, the wipers stop whenever you let go of the stalk, so in order to obtain a complete wipe cycle you have to keep it held down until the wipers hit the bottom of the screen. Also affected is if you turn off the normal speed wipe mid way through a cycle: the wipers stop dead where they are.
Blown fuse or knackered stalk?

This is Ford country, listen quietly and you can hear Vauxhalls rusting
Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

This could also be the self park feature built into the wiper motor as the control stalk doesn't control the parking of the wipers, most wiper motors have a cam and switch built in to make them self park using a constant live feed that is broken by the switch when in the park position.
Got ya. I'll check the fuses and if no joy it sounds like i'll be swapping wiper motors over at some point then.
Thanks for your help.
