Customer Question
My wipers won't turn...

My wipers won't turn on, I had noticed at times on intermittent they would stop but eventually come back on, I got them to swipe once yesterday in the rain and I can't get them to turn back on, I am thinking motor but I need to be sure cuz I am on a limited budget

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?

No I have not checked the fuses, I can get the washer fluid to spray but no wipers on any speed

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

2004 Nissan Altima

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

I am and it just happened so all I have done is You Tube to see how difficult the fix could be

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

That this has happened before it would stop then it would just decide to pick up and start again

In order to conduct the testing you will need a multimeter with ohm and volt capabilities.
