Wiper blades worked intermittent for a long time. Never know when they will work. I would have to keep stopping and give the blades a pull by hand to jump start the wiper motor. Just about to replace the wiper motor for $60.00 Then I read online that a guy said to re-solder the circuit board. It will get solder fractures (cold solder joints) Removed the three screws from the black box next to the wiper motor, unhooked the electrical connection first. pulled the circuit board out and reflowed the joint by the main connector plug. No hesitation at all after doing this. Working great. You tube for some good instructions how to do this.
My wipers don't like to work when it rains, but work fine otherwise. Not a good situation...and gets frustrating...
Wipers work without issue when it isn't raining however every time it rains they work for a few mins then stop n will randomly pop on mainly if u hit a bump in road. Once they start acting up I have to pull over pop the hood and push on the wiper motor wire harness till they come on n stay on
wipers only work when they want too. Replaced the ciricut board but intermittent only works when it wants too
Wipers an radio stopped working! But push radio button an clock comes on for a min! Head lights very dim brites don't work! 417-317-6886 need help!
Sometimes the wipers would come on when switched on, sometimes they would not. Have not tried to repair yet.
Wipers operated sporadically. Sometimes would not shut off without shutting off the ignition. A new circuit board cured the problems.
I have been dealing with this problem for years but it was not a big deal in Southern California as it does not rain that often.
