Wipers

is it typically the switch or the module when the intermittent wipers only work.....intermittently.

Re: Wipers

Are they just not starting the cycle, or getting stuck in the up position and not returning at the end of the cycle. I've seen both the switch and the module fail and the wipers don't trigger. Not returning to the park position scan be the switch, module, or the contacts in the motor itself. I have repaired a module or two that had cracked solder joints.

Re: Wipers

I assume it's the 1995 in your profile, btw.

Re: Wipers

It is my 95, the wipers always work properly, just the delay function only delays the wipers when it feels like it. I figure its probably something in the module, if the solder is prone to cracking then that is most likely it because my mail route has some of the roughest, least maintained roads in the county!

Re: Wipers

Ive got this problem with my 95. I think the intermittent wiper module run up until 96.
You can reach up under the lower dash panel and pull it out. Its held there with velcro and connected with two plugs.
I am in Australia and ours are on the right, and i believe yours are on the left.


Its a common problem. Sometimes the traces burn up, and i believe sometimes the relay plays up.
You can get replacements on Ebay with part number 56006957.
If your handy with a soldering iron, you can try fix it yourself.


Ive posted up a couple of pics here. Some are from the interwebs and ive just added comments.



The traces on mine are OK, so i have ordered a relay and seeing how that goes. Also asked a wrecking yard to send me a spare. I think they are all slowly starting to pack up.
