My 2012 escape back wiper won't work and I had a dead car…

Customer Question
My 2012 escape back...

My 2012 escape back wiper won't work and I had a dead car battery this morning

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

I went to the auto store and replaced the battery this week had it tested again today along with the alternator the auto store said there both fine

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

All I have done was unhook the wires to back wiper motor hoping that help until I can get it looked at

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

I don't think so

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.
