My windshield wipers do their own thing. When I turn them off they keep going, when I put them on delay or intermittent they work for a bit but then go on regular speed?? What is going on??? My car is only 5 yrs old???
Wipers will not return to the correct position when turned off
Wipers malfunction (start and stop at will) sometimes parking off at middle of windshield
Front wipers will not park and intermitant feature does not work.
The day after having my car inspected (required yearly by state), the rear windshield wiper stopped mid-swipe leaving my wiper stuck in a vertical position. This was a week ago, but due to starting a new job, I haven't been able to get the problem diagnosed or fixed.
Wipers are eratic and don't park properly new wiper motor suggested
same thing, wipers won't turn off when the switch is turned off.
Wipers stop working when you need them the most. Unable to duplicate problem in a controlled environment. Huge safety hazard driving at night in
Wipers Won't Park/shut off when turned off.
The wipers won't park at the down position.
wipers stop intermittently at differring inconvenient spots; start on their own accord; have one speed setting only
Wipers are on off position and are running on high. Intermittent does not work just stays on.
Wipers would not stop after being turned off. The wiper motor was replaced.
I turn them off and they keep going. Finally they stop unexpected in some strange position
Wipers speed control doesn't work. Wipers don't stop when turned off, and when they stop they don't end in the correct position. Sometimes turn on when the car is started.
Wipers will not park, will not work on intermittent.
Wipers bang into windshield post or bang to low, don't park.
my wiper speed slowed, now they don't work at all...is there a recall? next week, my door lock, airbag and compressor or being replaced at Honda's cost. It would be great if the wiper motor was recalled or had an extended warranty
Wipers won't park, get stuck half way during motion. Does this even on full speed
Eventually the wiper blades started to slap the bordering edges of the windshield and when I pulled them off, though the teeth were worn, and I fixed them, the wipers never again fully seated.
