Check to make sure you are getting power to the wiper motors. Also check relay. Either one could be bad.

Where can I find the fuse for the wipers for my 2002 Lincoln town car


Highly doubtful it being a blown fuse . Fuse's don't just blow , short circuit to ground or high current draw . Faulty component , wiper motor , wiper control module more likely . Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on body & accessories . then under subsystem click on wiper / washer , Click the search button ,then the blue link . Looking at the diagram i see the wiper switch is a input to the wiper control module .

The windshield wipers are controlled by the wiper control module and the driver-operated multi-function switch on the steering column, with the ignition switch in RUN or ACC position.
There are four modes of wiper operation: OFF position, the wipers move to and stay in the park position; Interval position, the wiper control module causes the wipers to cycle, separated by pauses, pause time length being determined by switch location; LO position, the wipers will operate at low speed continuously; HI position, the wipers will operate at high speed continuously.
The windshield washers are controlled by pressing inward on the wiper switch end of the multi-function switch. The washers will operate as long as the switch is depressed. If the wipers are in the OFF or Interval operating mode, the wipers will begin in LO speed and the washer pump will pump fluid from the reservoir to the nozzles. When the switch is released, the wipers will complete three cycles and then return to their previous setting. In LO or HI mode, no change in wiper operation will occur during washer operation.
The washer fluid level sensor is in the windshield washer reservoir (17618) and is monitored by the hybrid electronic instrument cluster (HEC) and displays a WASHER message when the fluid level is low. The washer fluid level sensor and windshield washer reservoir are replaced as an assembly.

Replaced wiper motor still not working fuse good power to motor is switch or module most likely cause


What you should have done, was worked off a wiring diagram

You study your circuits first-- then go to the vehicle with them

You test at the wiper motor & work your way back, if you do not
have the voltage your should have at the various wires, at the motor

Winsheild wiper will not work


The wiper control module is probably at fault ,without test that is just a guess . The wiper/washer switch is a input to the wiper control module. Do you know anything about automotive electronics an electrical systems ?
  • The Wipers are Inoperative
  • Fuse.
  • Wiper motor.
  • Multi-function switch.
  • Circuitry.
  • Wiper control module.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test B .

Voltage drop testing the power an ground circuits for the wiper control module would be a good place to start . Do you know how to test electrical circuits with a volt meter ?

Windshield wipers will not turn off until the fuse is taken out


I've diagnosed and repaired this problem twice on C5's. Both times I had to replace the wiper module (it's the printed circuit board mounted on the wiper motor).

I have replaced wiper motor 4 times last three years, wipers come on by them self run minute or 2 shut off, and it seems to start after I use touchless car wash. After I replace motor wipers work fine for...


This is really an easy fix. The wiper motor assembly is on the firewall, just right of center. The wiring can be unplugged before the circuit board is removed, or afterward. I found it easier to unplug it after the circuit board was removed. There is a flat cover that is held on with three torx screws (T20). Remove those screws and remove the cover.
The circuit board will now be visible. Remove the circuit board by grasping the wiring connecter and gently pulling it towards the front of the vehicle. When the circuit board has fallen free, unplug it from the wiring harness if you haven't already done so.
The solder joints that connect the wiring socket to the board go bad on the board.  Just resoldered those and re-installed the circuit board. 

Good luck and hope this helps. keep me posted, be glad to help.

My wipers just stoped working in my 2002 corvette. i checked the fuse and its fine. The washer fliud pumps and sprays but wipers dont move and make no noise...? Any help


Sounds like the wiper motor is shot. You can check for electric voltage at the motor using a meter to make sure it is getting power first.
