Wiper system

FRONT

If the problem being diagnosed involves only the pulse wipe or wipe-after-wash modes, see Washer System in the Diagnosis and Testing section of this group. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to 8W-53 - Wipers in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, REFER TO GROUP 8M - PASSIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

(1) Check the fuse in the junction block. If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, repair the shorted circuit or component as required and replace the faulty fuse.

(2) Turn the ignition switch to the On position.

Check for battery voltage at the fuse in the junction block. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the ignition switch as required.

(3) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Unplug the multi-function switch wire harness connector.

Connect the battery negative cable. Turn the ignition switch to the On position. Check for battery voltage at the fused ignition switch output (run/accessory) circuit cavity of the multi-function switch wire harness connector. If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the fuse in the junction block as required.

(4) If the problem being diagnosed involves only the intermittent wipe feature, go to Step 5. If the problem being diagnosed involves all wiper modes, or only the Low and/or High speed modes, go to Step 7.

(5) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Move the Central Timer Module (CTM) from its mounting position far enough so that the CTM wire harness connectors can be accessed. Refer to Central Timer Module in the Removal and Installation section of Group 8E - Instrument Panel Systems for the procedures. Unplug the 14-way CTM wire harness connector. Check for continuity between the wiper switch mode sense circuit cavities of the multi-function switch wire harness connector and the CTM 14-way wire harness connector. There should be continuity.

If OK, go to Step 6. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

(6) Check for continuity between the windshield wiper switch signal circuit cavities of the multi-function switch wire harness connector and the CTM 14-way wire harness connector. There should be continuity.

If OK, see Intermittent Wipe Relay in the Diagnosis and Testing section of this group. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

(7) Check for continuity between the two wiper switch low speed output circuit cavities of the multifunction switch wire harness connector. There should be continuity. If OK, go to Step 8. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

(8) Test the wiper switch. See Wiper Switch and Washer Switch in the Diagnosis and Testing section of this group for the procedures. If the switch tests OK, plug in the multi-function switch wire harness connector and go to Step 9. If not OK, replace the faulty switch and test the wiper system operation. If still not OK, go to Step 9.

(9) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Move the wiper module far enough to access the wiper motor wire harness connector. Measure the resistance between the ground circuit cavity of the wiper motor wire harness connector and a good ground. The meter should read zero ohms. If OK, go to Step 10. If not OK, repair the circuit to ground as required.

(10) Connect the battery negative cable. Turn the ignition switch to the On position. Place the multifunction switch in the positions indicated in the tests below, and check for battery voltage at the wiper motor wire harness connector.

(a) Check for battery voltage at the fused ignition switch output (run/accessory) circuit cavity of the wiper motor wire harness connector with the wiper switch in any position. If OK, go to Step b. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

(b) Check for battery voltage at the wiper switch low speed output circuit cavity of the wiper motor wire harness connector with the wiper switch in the Low position. If OK, go to Step c. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

(c) Check for battery voltage at the wiper switch high speed output circuit cavity of the wiper motor wire harness connector with the wiper switch in the High position. If OK, go to Step d. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.

(d) Check for battery voltage at the wiper park switch sense circuit cavity of the wiper motor wire harness connector with the wiper switch in the Low or High position, then move the switch to the Off position. The meter should switch between battery voltage and zero volts while the wipers are cycling. The meter should read battery voltage when the switch is moved to the Off position until the wipers park, and then read a steady zero volts.

If not OK, replace the faulty wiper motor.

REAR

If the problem being diagnosed involves only the rear wipe-after-wash mode, check the rear washer motor control circuit between the rear washer motor wire harness connector and the rear wiper motor wire harness connector for shorts or opens. If the circuit checks OK, replace the faulty rear wiper motor.

For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to 8W-53 - Wipers in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, REFER TO GROUP 8M - PASSIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEMS BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.

(1) Check the fuses in the junction block. If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, repair the shorted circuit or component as required and replace the faulty fuse(s).

(2) Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Remove the instrument panel lower bezel and unplug the wire harness connector from the rear window switch pod. Connect the battery negative cable.

Turn the ignition switch to the On position. Check for battery voltage at the fused ignition switch output (run) circuit cavity of the rear window switch pod wire harness connector. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the junction block as required.

(3) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Check for continuity between the ground circuit cavity of the rear window switch pod wire harness connector and a good ground. There should be continuity. If OK, go to Step 4. If not OK, repair the open circuit to ground as required.

(4) Test the rear wiper and washer switch continuity.

See Wiper Switch and Washer Switch in the Diagnosis and Testing section of this group for the procedures. If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, replace the faulty rear window switch pod.

(5) Remove the liftgate trim panel and unplug the rear wiper motor wire harness connector. Connect the battery negative cable. Check for battery voltage at the fused B(+) circuit cavity of the rear wiper motor wire harness connector. If OK, go to Step 6. If not OK, repair the open circuit to the junction block as required.

(6) Turn the ignition switch to the Off position.

Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

Check for continuity between the ground circuit cavity of the rear wiper motor wire harness connector and a good ground. There should be continuity. If OK, go to Step 7. If not OK, repair the open circuit to ground as required.

(7) Check for continuity between the rear wiper motor control circuit cavity of the rear wiper motor wire harness connector and a good ground. There should be no continuity. If OK, go to Step 8. If not OK, repair the short circuit as required.

(8) Check for continuity between the rear wiper motor control circuit cavities of the rear wiper motor wire harness connector and the rear window switch pod wire harness connector. There should be continuity.

If OK, replace the faulty rear wiper motor. If not OK, repair the open circuit as required.
