I gotcha into the correct category. A few words appear to have not shown up. So the rear wiper switch is on, you move the wiper arm, then it starts working?

when using the switch the front wipers work and the washer both front and back do as well

Thanks, ***** ***** it is the rear wiper motor that is to blame. The internal relays inside it that control the park position and motor power are bad. A new wiper motor is your fix for this concern.

You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.

Thanks Chris
