windshield wiper motor
I recently bought a 2005 P71 crown vic and it runs and drives great. It has one issue and it's the wipers don't want to work properly. I have replaced the wiper motor and the turn signal switch. So what happens is the wipers will work for in between 5 to 30 minutes depends on what it feels like doing. Then they just stops and won't work until the car has been turned off for around 30 minutes. Any Idea's? I live in Washington so it rains allot and very frustrating when I can barely seen where I'm driving every day.Bang[/b] Thank god for Rain X it helps.

Did you clean out the wiper cowl and is it a new motor?

RE: windshield wiper motor
Yes I did as it was full of crud. It’s clean now and I did check when it was raining. I didn’t see any water build up.

RE: windshield wiper motor
Is there a separate wiper module on these or is it part of the wiper motor like the MM?
I forget on the later CV

RE: windshield wiper motor
I've never really heard of that situation yet. Is there a wiper relay? If there is, might swap it with the horn relay for a test to rule it out. I can't check diagrams right now i might be able to tomorrow. Sounds like something weird is happening in your situation to me, Might be a good idea to check if wiper motor is getting a good ground, check for chaffed wires. another idea, check and see if motor has power and ground by back probing connector when is stops working. Check for hot motor could seize if too hot. check for loose wires or pins in connectors at malfunction switch and motor.

^Good idea to look for chaffed wires, these cars lived a hard life.
I do see a wiper motor fuse under the hood, but no specific relay.

When I had issues with PCM constant power on my '05, it was a broken wire in a bundle behind the bumper cover, took me a long time to find it.
