this car was purchased at 160000 miles and the first rain storm the windshield wipers worked some of the time, like the car has a bad short. I have not fixed the issue yet will start with the board.
the wipers fail to operate sometimes like there is a short
Started with front wiper's not resting all the was down when off. Then a few moth later, wipers would get stuck. It was an easy inexpensive repair. Just bought a Dorman replacement board (with lifetime warranty) at Auto Zone for about $35. Just needed some silicone sealant and an Allen wrench. Took about 10 minutes.
wipers won't work when it rains...go figure
