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

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. In order to determine the cause of your issue, you will need to check the fuses in the engine compartment and passenger compartment fuse boxes. Here, I am attaching the electrical information for the circuits along with fuse location information. You will need to check fuses #s 39 and 34 in the fuse box under the hood, fuses #s 12 and 14 in the fuse box on the drivers side inside the vehicle. Also, you will need to inspect the 50 amp fusible link located in the fusible link box. I am also attaching the testing information and proceduresf

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

Would you like help still? It sounds like Todd did give you some good information but not much for testing instructions.
