 Fault diagnosis 


Since after car, according to the fault phenomena, motor can operate, you can be sure wiper work power failure should be ruled out, the
working principle of the car wiper, wiper switch control signal transmission to the body basic module and basic module control wiper
relay to the wiper motor at low speed, high power, wiper motor internal feedback should be positioning signal operation basic module to
the body, according to the working principle of infer that this failure has the following several reasons :



1. Fault of body module ;



2. Wiper motor relay or line fault ;



3. Combination switch or communication control circuit with body module .






Where does the water from the wiper motor come from ?


Originally under the windshield wiper installation location with baffle wall, there is a sink, over time, sedimentation, to block a sink,

in  the running water along the windshield wiper motor .





Although the wiper motor is sealed, but the wiper motor work fever, heat bilges cold shrink or flooding, the water about micro switch corrosion Chang Tong wiper motor position

make the body basic module receives less than running with the return signal, cause every time after the ignition switch to the switch,

as long as the wiper switch, wiper can only work at low speed more than ten seconds, and the wiper arm may stop at any position, and then fault of windshield wipers doesn’t work .
