Default No wipers on Accord 2003

Hi,

All of a sudden my wipers stopped working, the fuse is OK.

I don't know how to get to the motor... is there a relay i could look for.

The Haynes manual is not available yet.

Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks.

When you say the fuse is good, do you mean that you looked at it and
it looked okay, or that you tested it for continuity?

I do not know about the 2003. My 1993 had a wiper relay on the under
dash fuse block

Hope this helps

You misunderstood. He wasn't asking for help. He was merely telling a
story.

I tested it's continuity and on my OHM meter it says 0, the same as when I
touch the tips together...

Oh for crying out loud, will you just get over it?

Sounds good to me. I asked, because I have seen fuses that looked
good, but were still open.

The next step would be to look for 12 volts at the plug that goes into
the motor. It should be accessible under the cowling below the
windshield. You will need to take the wipers off first, then I THINK
the cowling just snaps out..

Or, you could find and replace the relay.

I looked on the FAQ maintained by Tegger and did not see anything that
exactly matched your symptom. The FAQ does mention an integrated
control unit that causes odd symptoms.

Hey, I thought it was a joke. About as funny as my lame-ass jokes, so
I can't complain.

Can you hear the motor running when you turn the wiper switch on?

The relay is in the fuse/relay box under the hood, a little in front of the
drivers side wiper. After finding that good, if the washer also doesn't
work, you might want to check the switch (and it's connections) before
checking the motor, especially if there is no sound at all coming from the
motor when you try it.
