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???
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 stop working when you need them the most. Unable to duplicate problem in a controlled environment. Huge safety hazard driving at night in
wipers stop intermittently at differring inconvenient spots; start on their own accord; have one speed setting only
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 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.
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.
