Default FYI: Wiper Relay Problem Solved

Just wanted to share a trick that fixed a problem I had on my 00 3.2TL.

Last night, as I was leaving my subdivision, I had the wipers on
intermittent, and went to hit the washer. As soon as I did, the wipers
quit- dead, immobile, unresponsive. No switch movement worked.

I checked all of the fuses, and not one was blown. Obviously, I thought,
I fried the wiper relay. A quick search online reveled that I could get
the part delivered for about $37.

A coworker of mine who is good with cars suggested that before I order
the relay, to just disconnect both cables of the battery for about 5-10
minutes, then reconnect them and try the wipers.

I did, and son of a gun, they worked.

At the very least, he saved me $37 and some of my own time. Had I taken
this to a shop, I hate to think of what they would have charged.

Just figured I share this with you folks.

Much Respect,

Charlie Chan

If you have anti-theft on the radio, you will need the code to bring
it back to life.
