99 Crown Vic wiper problem

I have a 99 Crown Vic and the wipers stopped working. I removed the plastic cover under the hood were the wiper warms go into, and it was packed with leaves and what not (apparently the previous owner owned alot of trees). Once I removed the debris, the wipers worked again, but only on high speed, and they do not go into the 'park' position. They stop wherever the are when you remove them off high speed. Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, what is the problem? Is it the relay or do I need to replace the motor? Also, I have kept the plastic cover off so that no debris accumulates in there again

Re: 99 Crown Vic wiper problem

Its your switch or motor. The debris probably was initially the culprit.Now you have enough power on high only to run the wipers.Check the motor first.However the failure to return could be a sign of a switch problem.Either way its one or the other

There is a small part in the wiper motor that controls the "park" position. It can't be fixed or repaired.I had to replace the wiper motor to fix the same problem.As for the wipers only working on high speed, replace the wiper switch, it's bad and can't be fixed. SORRY>

hi, sorry about my english,, well check the cables from wiper motor, in my case many blacks and 1 red, this send a pulse, but if had a problem in the past maybe its cut, and don´t send a pulse when turn off the wiper and stop any place wen you turn it off.

Re: 99 Crown Vic wiper problem

Just got wipers fixed on '93 Sierra with same exact problem. Come to find out it was bad switch, bad wires, and bad circuit board. So I would check out all three.

Had the problem for a while. The directionals eventually went beserk and were flashing so rapidly the bulb almost didn't shut off between flashes. Don't know if it was related. I would check those out too just in case.

if the wipers stand up in the middle of the windshield when you turn them off you have a bad wiper motor. the park mechanism breaks. very common problem. there are either six or eight bolts that hold the cowl down. there are 3 bolts that hold the motor in place. remove connector and replace. takes about 45 minutes.
