SOURCE: Rear wiper constantly regardless of switch position

If the switch itself feels just the same as it always has then the most likely fault is that the rear wiper motor located behind the panel in the tailgate has suffered a failure of the self-parking mechanism: it's what ensures that after you turn the wiper off, the motor keeps running until the wiper is back in the parked position.

There are two major parts to the way it works: a self parking switch which works off a cam located in the wiper motor, and a back-emf brake which overcomes the inertia of the mechanism.

The simplest fix will be to just replace the motor assembly. You can get one from a scrapyard, but won't know whether it's about to fail for the same wear-related reasons. Alternatively fit a new or remanufactured unit. You'll also find that a good automotive electrician can usually fix the original motor, but as it's nearly ten years old there may be other wear-related issues waiting to bite you on the bottom so I'd personally go for a remanufactured unit from a trustworthy supplier. Such units normally come with a minimum one year warranty. Anything with just a 30 or 90 day warranty has likely just been taken from a scrapped vehicle, cleaned and given a shiny coat of paint...

The rear wiper is controlled by the rotating ring that is on the same stalk as the wipers, it is closer to the steering wheel.

SOURCE: how to replace the WIPER SWITCH for rear wiper on a MDX 2001? The rear wiper stays on all the time

You will have to first check the wiper motor relay in case it has become fused and stuck.
After that, then you need to check the switch operation on the wiper stalk.

Windshield wipers will not park


Your problem is probably in the wiper transmission itself. There is a switch that tells what position to stop feeding power to the motor. But if that switch isn't working, the rest of the system does not know what to do, nor exactly when! However, if you have a good concept of timing, what you COULD do, is simply turn the wiper switch off the instant they are at the "lowest point" in their sweep cycle ... at a cost of NOTHING!

Why don't my wiper's work on high or medium on my Ford Windstar 2001


The multi switch is broken. there are little slivers of copper in the switch, as time goes on these pieces become worn and slip around as you twist that switch, or move it up and down.

Where is the fuse box location for 2001 windstar and is the windshield washer fuse named


the washer pump is not fused directly, the pump operates through a central module called the BCM (body control module), so if the power windows work and the wipers work the problem is not loss of power to the system, it is either a defective wiper switch (most common) or it is a defective washer pump motor. My experience? 35 years as a Ford dealer technician

The windshield washer fluid isnt coming out for


Yes there are two pumps located in the wiper fluid reservoir. If your in a bind, you can switch the plugs and small hose that go to them because they are both the same. The upper pump operates the back, and the lower pump operates the front. The back won't work until it gets replaced, but it beats driving backwards.

2001 ford windstar windshield wipers do not work


These wiper controls are notorious for failing. Most likely the wiper switch is bad, but have the wiper motor tested just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps, good luck!
