Question type: Maintenance & Repair

During a rain storm while driving home from work the wipers just stopped working. Everything had worked fine up untile that point, multi-speeds, washer, turn off switch and blades return to bottom position. Replaced motor and now only have 2 speeds and the blades will not return to bottom position when you turn off switch.

....well you are right...there is supposed to be a "park" position whereby the motor is energized until the cycle is complete...will have to look at your electrical schematic, but sounds to me like a connector was put on backwards~


Okay? The wiper motor has a 6 wire plug connector, one way off one way on, what could be backwards about that? Could it be the new wiper motor not wired properly. I'm at a lost thanks for your help.
