When I start the car, the rear windshield wiper comes on one time .

Asked by Jan 08, 2015 at 12:30 PM about the 2006 Toyota 4Runner Sport Edition V8 4WD

Question type: General

Since the rainy season, I used the rear wiper arm one time. Now whenever I start the truck
up, the rear wiper arm does one pass and tucks itself back in. I have all the switches on
the control arm in the off position. Even the intermittant selector is off.
I can't get it to stop doing that.

I downloaded the owners manual and on Page 141 it shows that 'Off' on the rear wiper is if you use the washer fluid it wipes one time then automatically returns back to off. I can't see any reason it would do what you describe without you using the washer fluid http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM35852U/pdf/1-5.pdf

Hi Mark, I am going to download the pdf you've attached and check it out. Maybe it should be in another position. It's never done that before when starting up so, I'm not sure. Thank you so much for your help!
