Wiper motor shutting down kia forte 2019

Asked by Metlas7 Dec 14, 2019 at 04:26 PM about the 2019 Kia Forte

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Has anyone had issues with the 2019 Kia Forte
when it comes to snow and the windshield wipers.
If I get even the slightest bit of snow above or
below my wipers and they can't go all the way
down they will just stop moving. Even if I get out
and clear the snow the wipers still takes a good 30
to 60 seconds before it's ready to move again. I
have had dozens of vehicles and generally they are
powerful enough to push the considerable amount
of snow off the windshield either that has settled
there from a snowstorm or has slid from the top
of the vehicle forward. But these wipers are so
weak they can barely push any kind of weight and
if they attempt to push it and then fail they
stopped moving all together and even wants to
know it's clear they will not move. I literally have
been caught multiple times on the road where
snow has gradually built up underneath the
windshield wiper and because it can't drop as far
as it normally would it just ceases to move at all
and then I cannot see where I'm going. I have had
to park the vehicle and drive my old truck because
I can't get the window to clean off.
