Re: [FWDLK] Autopark for Windshield wipers



Tom,

 

Your wiper motor has a “park” switch that continues to supply power, when the dash switch is turned off, until the blades reach the Park position, then the switch opens and the blades stay put. When the switch fails to make contact, the blades stop wherever they are when the dash switch is turned off.

 

There should be a repair process for this failure mode in your factory shop manual.

I noticed that on the plus side, my ’55 Dodge has electric wipers as opposed to the vacuum wipers I experienced as a youth  on same year Chevy and wondering what idiot would design a wiper to quit when engine vacuum went to zero.  But, I noticed today that the wipers do not park.  Is that a defect or a design issue?

 

TIA   Tom
