Yes the one is the hood and the one under the dash the one in the hood consists of mostly relays

Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question. There are only a few possible causes that this could be. First you could have low or no voltage at the wiper motor. This will be the first thing the check. He will need to be on in the wipers only to be turned on high. At least one wire if not two wires should have full battery voltage on them.

The second possible cause would be a faulty or insufficient ground preventing the wiper motor from working.

Sometimes these will have a separate ground wire going to them or the wiper moral ground itself through the mounting bolts so be sure they're clean and tight.

Last but not least would be something binding up with the wiper transmission preventing the wiper motor from being able to turn. Once you gain access to the wiper arms and transmission and disconnected from the wiper motor you should be able to move freely by hand.

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
