Q: Windshield wipers stopped working.

asked by on

The windshield wipers on my car do not work.

I would recommend that you seek help from a certified mechanic to diagnose why your wipers are not working. He will have the necessary test equipment to check the electronics of the wiper system. He will be able to determine if it is a bad fuse, switch or wiper motor that is causing your wipers not to work.
