Wiper not working on winter

Asked by Oct 14, 2015 at 11:12 AM about the 2011 Dodge Avenger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 11' Dodge Avenger, the wipers work fine but in winter they stop
working, there is no snow or ice just freaking cold. Everything works well all
year except in winter, need to fix before this winter starts
Any suggestion?
Thank you

Sounds like a thermal failure, could be the wiper motor, the switch or even the wiring, some circuit is going open when it gets cold and shrinks. Have you double checked all of the connections even those at the switch?

No, that gives me a good start point, never thought about a circuit or cable not making right connection. Any other advise to check?
