Customer: replied 3 years ago.
You said I needed to check the F2.9 fuse, I done that the fuse is okay
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 3 years ago.

if you dont have power on the pink/black wire at the wiper motor, and he fuse is good and has power when the key is on, then there is a break in the pink/black wire some where, the wires goes directly from the fuse to the motor,tim

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

After checking out everything that you said, we still could not get the wiper motor on the rear to work. We then took it to a mechanic who worked on it and then gave up. We have done the same.
