Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

turn the ignition switch on and check the GREEN wire at the connector and let me know if there is battery voltage. Also check the WHITE/BLACK wire as well?

Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

okay, now hook up the wiper motor connector and back probe the BLUE wire. On each wiper speed position tell me if there is power. Then also do this for the GREEN wire. Number each speed and voltage reading. Like this:

BLUE WIRE

Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.

From these readings I say the motor is bad? Is it a factory replacement? I can provide you a test for the motor. Would you like that?

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there aren't additional charges for posting to this thread after you rate so we can keep chatting. Thanks!

sorry about yesterday. It got a little hectic. I will be around till about 8:30 this morning, and then be back around 11 a.m.

Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

I need to know where you are putting power to make the motor work. This will help me determine what might be going on.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am putting power to the blue wire
Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The wiper motor voltage goes to ground through the Blue wire terminal. Battery voltage comes from the green wire then through the Blue and Yellow wires to ground to make the motor work. You should be able to power the green wire and then supply a ground for the Yellow and Blue wires to make the motor work. If it doesn't this means the motor is bad.

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

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

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
