Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hey there, so they are operating at different speeds also? or the same speed each time?
i have seen the wiper washer motors short out and cause them to come on randomly for a few swipes similar to when you use the wash function, but that would not be the case if they are coming on at random speeds as well.
let me know please.
On switching on the wipers, they come on at the selected speed but randomly stop sometimes halfway across the windscreen. There is then a variable time delay before they start up again. Turning the wipers on and off does not reactivate them - they eventually (after 20 secs or so) start up again by themselves. Occasionally they come on for one or two swipes without being switched on.
I have taken it to an auto electrician who had no idea other than to suggest to replace the unit.
The car is going in to Nissan next week so it looks like another motor!!
Just to complete the story. Mechanics could find no fault with wiper motor etc and computer said all was working well. But when I got the vehicle home the engine themo. fan was working and would not turn off, still going after several hours! Anyway to cut a long story short (multiple visits to the workshop and a flat battery) it looks like there is an intermittent positive short somewhere in the wiring. How else can electrical machines work when switched off? Anyway vehicle now back at workshop.
Thanks for your help
