Q: Windshield wipers not working

asked by on January 22, 2016

My windshield wipers are not working.

Hi. The windshield wiper system would have to be inspected to see if a fuse has blown, indicating a bad wiper motor. If the fuse is okay, then the system would have to be checked for a problem in the wiper switch to see if the proper power is getting to the motor assembly. I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose the problem you are having.
