Default rear windshield wiper not working

I cant get my rear windshield wiper to work correctly, it works fine when i hold down the button to use the windshield washer feature but if i just put it in normal mode to allow it to go by itself it doesnt work, is the actual wiper mode and washer mode on 2 different fuses any ideas?

I would either replace the switch or tear it apart and look closely at the switch connection 2 which leads to plug pin 4.

0 = off
2 = wiper only
1 = wiper and pump

Above is internal numbering, dual side switch.


1 = ground
2 = pump (1, one side of internal switch)
3 = lamp
4 = wiper (1 and 2 on switch feed to this, other side)
5 = fused input
6 = to motor (motor is fused)

Plug numbering

So the blade moves when you press down, but not when you click it in the first position?

My best guess it is something with the switch then

it is not a fuse or the motor itself

you can get OEM spares for like $15
