Question about 2009 Hummer H3

1 Answer

The wipers keep icing up while driving. We had to stop several times to clean the ice off the wipers.

    The defrost was on high. We thought that the tension might need adjusted. This is the first big snow storm in years in our area. We loved driving the Hummer but it was very unsafe with not being able to see out the windshield. Just wondered if anyone else had this problem.

The only thing that might help some with that is to keep your defrost vents on high to keep the windshield warm. There is not much else you can do to stop the wipers from freezing up in inclement winter weather.

Wipers just twitch up and down one inch


Have you physically cleaned the windows? Wipers won't take ice off and will sometimes break when used that way.
If you can't remove the ice, run the car with defrost on high heat until it melts before using the wipers.
The wipers continue to "twitch" you may have popped a gear apart or broken part of the apparatus. Let me know!

My 1990 nissan stanza had ice on windshield, I tured on wipers & nothing The motor runs but wipers don't


If the ice buildup was severe enough and you tried to run your wipers while they were frozen in place, the wiper transmission has probably failed, slipped a joint and now the motor will turn but it will not turn the wiper arms. You will have to open up the wiper panel and visually check to see what part has failed in that wiper transmission.

Windshield wiper on car iced up during snow/driving could not see


You can usually avoid that by using a good quality winter mix washer fluid that resists freezing, making sure the wipers are cleared of ice before beginning the drive and using the defroster to keep the windshield warm. In extreme conditions you just need to pull over and manually clean the ice off by hand.(only do that where it's safe). There are also specially designed wiper blades that will also help a bit.

Wiper won't park


HI, there is a park switch or circuit that is built into every wiper motor. Apparently, your switch has failed. you must replace the entire motor(wiper) in this case.

2001 sonata wiper fuse keeps blowing


If the fuse blows as soon as you put it in and the wipers are off then you have a short between the fuse block and the wiper switch.

If the fuse blows only when you turn the wipers on then more than likely the wiper motor has shorted and burned out. This one is very likely if the snow storm was heavy and you was driving in it. Cause- Moving large amounts of snow and ice off the window puts a heavy load on the wiper motors.
