Possessed Rear Wiper

Post by mclemson1 on Wed Jul 08, 2015 8:15 pm

Hi there!

Before I start, I should probably state that I'm fairly hopeless with auto electrics.

Anyway - recently got a new Hijet, and the rear wiper wasn't working. identified that the both cables had snapped in the rubber boot thingy at the top of the boot. Easy enough job, re-connect them both use a connector block, and bam, wiper on.

However. Now I can't get the ruddy thing to turn off without disconnecting it at the motor. I have tried removing the switch at the front, still keeps on going! Also, if I remove the earthing cable (believe it is an earthing cable?) at the point I connected the two wires, the wiper goes to neutral and then stops.

How do I stop the blasted thing?!

I would say that you have wired it wrong.

So are most Auto Electricians I've met so don't feel too bad about that as wiper self parking wiring gets grown men crying.

I had the same problem; never got it sorted. That doesn't help does it? Laughing

Inside a wiper motor, there is a disk in the gearbox.

It has copper tracks and some brush arms.

If a wiper won't park, it tends to be the arms or disk is messy.

Most of the time a bit of bodging gets them working again.

Rip it open and deal with it Smile

I too would agree there is the possibility you have joined up wires incorrectly.
