Ok so here is where I am at. Windshield wipers were not moving when I first started my car. After a few minutes they wipers would work. Driving the other day in a storm, wipers quit halfway up the windshield and wouldn't move.
Yesterday took the car to the dealership they checked the relays and switch and said it was all good, and I needed a new wiper motor. Dealership didn't have one so I went to a parts store and got one (refurbished). It was the only one that I could find. Took it home and through a lot of luck (I am not really mechanically inclined) got the old one off and the new one on.
I want to mention here that it was a real huge pain to get the old motor off from the wiper linkage. It took a lot of work because that baby was not letting go (I only mention this because this may be part of the problem?). So here are the steps I have taken thus far.
1- Checked the fuse and it is good.
2- Dealership checked the swith and relays and said they are good.
3- replace the old motor with the refurbished motor.
4- Wipers still do not work.
Talked to the parts store and they said another store was getting the part today, I am taking the original motor in, exchanging it for another motor, and will try installing the motor I get today.
I am worried I might have a linkage problem maybe? When I hit the lever for the wipers, they do move, but very slightly, maybe 1/4 of an inch. If I put just the smallest bit of pressure on the driver's wiper they work.
Any advice, help, or suggestions?
