Default Winshield wippers not working?

hELLO all,

I jumped in my car this morning (in the rain) and hit the wipper switch and nothing, I figured it was the fuse so I pulled it out and checked it, but it was good. I replaced it anyways but no luck. Before I dig into this problem further is there any known problems that I should be aware of with the wippers in a 2002 Acura TL type S ?

Any advice would be great,
Thanks

OK, thanks

I tested it and I'm getting power to the motor. So I'm going to be ordering a new wiper motor

It's possible that the wiper motor is starting to go. It's likely that some malfuction on the motor is causing it to slame them down or it can not lower them properly anymore. Take it to a shop and see what they say.

Bump. +1. Good thing you ordered a new wiper motor already. I am guessing that is the main culprit for this. You could have wasted time if you didn't prompt yourself to replace it.

I don't believe it's going to be the fuse that's causing you the problem, it sound more like the relay , i would think that the relay is stuck closed,which would cause the wipers to stay on when you turn the key off.
