Windshield Wipers Stop Working

Recall Details

The windshield washer pump may experience voltage spikes, causing damage to the windshield wiper circuit, resulting in the wipers not functioning. Dealers will replace the windshield washer pump free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The windshield wipers may stop working due to an electrical issue within the washer pump. This could cause reduced driver visibility and result in a crash.
