Q: I need to know where the wires go on a windshield motor.

asked by on

Wires unhooked to motor don't know how they go

My car has 18999 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. There should be a green wire, red wire, and black wire on your wiper motor. The black wire goes to the ’P’ terminal, the red wire goes to the ’A’ terminal, and the green wire goes to the ’F’ terminal on the wiper switch. If you need further assistance with hooking up your wiper motor, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
