Maybe it's not the motor.
Don't replace the motor yet.
It could be a fuse or at the switch.
It may not be a motor problem.
The wiper motor has 2 windings, fast and slow.
The wiper switch sends a ground signal to each motor winding.
There may be a problem on the relay, or at the switch or in the cable to the motor.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Accord Problem

I cannot get my air conditioner clutch on my 1996 Honda Accord EX to engage. I've checked the fuse and relay. The fuse is good but the power is not going to the relay. If I can find the power that comes to the relay, I can fix it. I need to know what activitate the relay and the power that the relay push to the clutch. I need to know where they come from.

I've been looking for a circuitry that shows it and a drawing that shows the air conditioning fan. Please help.

SOURCE: 1993 Honda Accord Emergency Brake + Rear seatbelt not retracting

The e-brake probably has an adjustment nut either under the brake when you have it pulled up or simply removing a small plastic plate at the back of the console as seen from the rear seat.
You wil probably need about a 12mm deep socked to adjust it. If the nut is bottomed out you will need to adjust if at the wheels.

As far as the seatbelt, you will need to access the reel assembly and determine if the belt is in a bind or the internal spring in the reel is broken. You should be able to tell what the problem is when you get to the reel.

SOURCE: 1991 Honda Accord won't start. Battery seems ok

Sounds like the distributor. But you may have a faulty replacement coil..get an exchange and see if it is faulty. I have received many replacement parts that fail prematurely.

Hi, the windscreen washer won't work on my 2002 Peugeot 1.6 16v rapier. Can't hear pump working so don't think is blocked. Any help great fully received thanks. Martin.

Check the plug at the pump for power on one of the terminals, get someone to operate the switch. These items fail on French cars continuously. Get a pump from ebay or parts house.

Washer won't pump water to rear wiper

One reservoir, two separate pumps. First, listen if you can hear the pumps running. If they each are, something may be blocking the flow. Look in the reservoir and see if there is any debris blocking the intake at the bottom. Also check for kinks in the lines. Finally see if the nozzles are blocked. Good luck

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Front windshield washer does not work. A while back, hit something on the road that cracked the reservoir. Patched the hole, back washer began working. Front still does not work...

Check to ensure the front reservoir pump is connected and receiving power. Is the fuse bad?
It is possible the pump inlet is clogged. This would require removing the reservoir and flushing it.
If this is a washer with an external, self-priming pump, is the pump uptake tube in the cap missing?

Volvo v50 washer fluid doesn't spray

Hi, their are a couple of common problems here.
but first of all check the following.
can you heat the pump come on when you press the button for the washer, if you cant hear it from in the car open the bonnet and get someone to press the button and listen for the pump if you hear it then you know the pumps working if you dont hear anything then the pump needs replacing.

if neither the front or back windows work and the pumps make no sound for front or back washer then your next stop would be the fuse box, check all the fuses and replace any blown fuses then try the washers.

If how ever you can hear the pump working then the problem is going to be one of 2 things the most common is going to be that the water jets are blocked to unblock them get a small needle and poke into the holes where the water comes out of then try the washer, if it still dont work then the problem is the other end at the washer botlle, you will find the pipe by the pump has gelled up due to the cleaning fluid you put into the washer bottle so what you now need to do is remove the washer bottle and the pumps and give the pipes a good clean out to ensure they are not blocked.

i hope i have given you some things to check

Water not comeing out of washer front r back cant hear pump sound

check the wiring to the washer pump - its on the bottom of the washer bottle, disconnect the connector to the rear washer pump (do them both) and clean up the contacts with sandpaper - you can try swapping the connectors over and see if the front washer connector will power the rear washer, if so the problem is a fuse or the rear washer switch is broken.
Tell me how you get on and I'll advise further.
This way you can prove both pumps work, if the rear pump wont work off the front pump cable then the pump is at fault and needs replacing.

Front seat wont go front or back.

Could be 1 of 2 things. The switch on the side of the seat could be bad or the motor for the forward and reverse is bad. But lets hope something is blocking it and can be removed. I think the switches for those two operations should be sold seperately.
