When front or rear windshield wipers stop working, automobile owners are left with two choices. The first choice is to buy an OEM product from a car dealership. The second choice is to buy through a second hand resource. Each source provides the correct product, but there is a huge difference in the selling price. LocateCarParts.com supplies used windshield wiper motors for sale at a reduced price point to American and Canadian consumers.
Mechanics of Motorized Wipers
The common pairs of wiper arms and blades utilized in vehicles are now automated. A motor is connected to a module and several linkage pairs that need to work together for proper operation. The electric pulse from the ignition switch is what provides the motor with the power level needed to move each arm from the park to the operational position.
4 Very Common Wiper Motor Problems
1. Faulty Bypass Switch
2. Broken Speed Control
3. Bad Wiring Harness
4. Blown Fuse
The symptoms can be varied when it comes to making a diagnosis of a bad wiper motor in a foreign or American vehicle. One of the first signs of an issue is when the wipers will not turn off. If a switch has been evaluated and found to be functional, the likely problem is in the motor unit itself.
Blades that move across the windshield at a slower than normal pace is another noticeable problem. Blades might only work at a single speed or not stop in the intended park position.
