Wipers wont turn off even when ignition is off, Everything…

Customer Question
Wipers wont turn off...

Wipers wont turn off even when ignition is off

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

Everything else seems ok

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2004 Expedition

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Expedition yourself? What have you tried so far?

Disconnected multi function switch...no change

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Seems like the problem is intermittent but happens when the wipers have been on long enough for something to heat up? Ignition is off key out, stays on at low speed.

The common cause for this type of problem is usually a failing wiper motor or in some cases a bad interior fuse panel . Are you able to do some quick testing If I tell you have to do this?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
