Intermittent wiper not working
Posted 05 December 2003 - 09:28 PM
So my question is: What's the first thing I should check? Is there a relay somewhere that controls this function?

I asked if they park because if you disconnect that relay the int. wipers don't work or park.
I don't think the relay is your problem.

The only time it doesn't seem to return to the original position is if you turn the switch back off before the wiper is done with the sweep. (For example, if you turn to intermittent and leave it there it will make one full sweep and return to the normal position, then stop. If you turn to intermittent then turn back to off before the wiper cycle is done, it will do the same thing but stops a few inches short of the normally parked position.)
I'm not sure if this is what you were talking about though? :cornfuzz:

There is a ground on the cover of the wiper motor gear box cover.
This cover also serves purpose as the park sensor gound plate.
Check the ground at the cover and the swiper inside the cover.
Sometimes grease can get on this swiper and cause intermitant problems.
If all this checks out, and the plug for the wiper motor is in okay shape then the intermitant timer modual should be checked.
This timer is mounted to the trim panel under the st. col. and can have bad solder joints causing this intermitant problem.
These are also problematic when the wipers do the "herky jerk" in the int. position.
Check the wiper motor cover plate first.
Hope this helps
