wipers not working

i noticed another problem with my 05' 9-5 Aero wagon, the front windscreen wipers are not working.

The rear works fine, the washers work good too but the front wipers do not work.

the fuses are good, could it be the wiper motor or the stalk?

im assuming the rear wipers and the washers would not work if the relay was bad, correct?

you might want to put this in the right forum. this is for the 2010+ 9-5. that new rare unicorn we never see.


in relation to the problem i believe there are two seperate relays. one for the front and one for the rear. so it could be the relay for the front, or the motor. Stalk is unlikely if the rear works.

do you hear any noises when you turn them on? are they trying to work do you hear a click in the relay etc...

Dang your right didn't realize that til now.

Problem fixed. I pulled the wipers and shroud and found that the connector was only half way pushed in.

Mods please move to the correct forum.
