Have a qualified repair shop check it out . Electronic module involved , WCM - wiper control module . May have code's stored . You have no clue as to how it works.

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.

SOURCE: 2001 avalon winshield wiper motor location and

check the fuses under the dash and under the hood

failing that go to auto zone they can show you the location and quote the parts price too
remem ber to turn on wipers and turn on ignition dont start the car look under hood listen for winding noise locate noise locate wiper motor

if making wiring noise remove and re conect wiper arms inside as they are prone to poping off if over loaded like when frozen to wind screen they pop the conector rather than burn the motor out ]

SOURCE: fuse for windshield wiper motor

It may be the windshield wiper module instead of being the motor, since you have had that replaced 3x already. There should be no fuse issue.

I have a 2004 Lincoln Town Car. The windshield wipers began acting up. First the high speed stopped working. Now all continuous speeds and intemittent have stopped. Does it sound like a motor...


There might be a black box involved in the wiper control and perhaps a relay but without a circuit diagram it would be difficult to point a finger at a possible culprit or decide where to begin checking.

Considering your comment about the noisy motor, if it is accessible it would be fairly simple to check if it has a supply and a ground path and even to check the motor and that would be a good place to begin.

The wiper slowed and finally stopped working altogether. There is a bit of movement when starting up the wipers.


Sounds like the motor is tired. BUT!check the switch first. variable speed switches fail more often than wiper motors.

Wipers stop after 5 minutes of slow or intermiant speed use.


Try replacing the Wiper Motor Pulse Board Module. It is available at aftermarket parts stores, it is easy to replace, and it is a high failure item. Eventually, the module will fail completely and leave you with no wipers.
