Just bought it-5 days later the windshield wipers are stuck on/turn signals won't work. Took it to the certified shop and they replaced wiper & multi purpose signal switch. Started doing it again?
Is this a wiring problem? The mechanic was a little red in the face after they told me it was fixed and we
didn't even get it out of the service garage.
Sounds like a short inside the steering column or in the wiring under the dash near the steering column. Could be something "hot" is contacting the wiper switch terminal(s) inside the column. Do the wipers stop when you turn the key off? If so, whatever it is is switched through the ignition. Try putting your hazards on with the key off. Do the wipers start too? If so, I bet it's the turn signal switch. Either installed improperly or defective. I work at NAPA & unfortunately defective parts right out of the box do happen sometimes. HTH. -Jim
Hmmm, the wipers do turn off when the ignition is off. So you think it is in the steering column. Thanks
Yup, that's the first place I'd look. The turn signals are switched through the ignition switch. Also, try stepping on the brake pedal witb the key off. Do the wipers start too? Both the hazards & brake lights are hot all the time. Even with the key off. One more thing. Turn the key & wiper switch on. Try your turn signals. Do the turn signals work with the wiper switch on? Your welcome. -Jim
