1995 BMW 325I: Windshield wipers quit working..Fuses good

Customer Question

1995 BMW 325I - Windshield wipers quit working. Fuses good. Plug to motor is good. Hear relay behind glove box click when turning the wipers on, but they do not move. Can move the linkage by hand. Are there fuses behind the glove box to check? or is it the motor?

Hi does sound like the wiper motor. Real easy to check is to run the wipers with the switch and at the plug to the motor ck for power use a multimeter and one end to a good ground and the other end at the connector after disconnecting it. Try both wires. If you have power to the motor and the motor does not work it needs a motor. Mike
