blackberrypro I had the same issue like the guy above. I have checked the wires, and also I have changed the wiper turn signal item in the steering wheel.

I am not sure what else could it be need help.

p90xsexyguy I confirmed it last night the rear windshield wiper turns itself on when I apply the breaks other than that it will not turn on. I am suspecting broken wires,

p90xsexyguy So where is this boot located at?

Sorry I am knew to this little car so I have a had time finding where this things are.

ArcticMynx Actually just pull the boot and expose the wires then tape the cracks on each wire for a temp fix at least it won't activate the wipers/defrost/brake light... I suggest that you tape them cuz if you activate the brake light or its activating itself intermittently you could be fined and they could pull your car off the road for a safety inspection

Don't be surprised if you see something like this XD

p90xsexyguy Wow that is expensive I guess I can live with out my rear winshield wiper...

Thanks for all of the input jrn146..
11-11-2008 10:18 PM
jrn146 It's probably broken wires between the hatch and body. If you do a search there are pics posted. It's a fairly common problem. On mine the rear wiper would stop in the middle of the window, open and close the hatch and it might work for a while. I tried to get the harness at the dealer but it's part of the whole car harness and the price was around $250. I just ran new wires between the body and hatch.

sleepyboy check at the back hatch where the wires go into the body to see if there is any exposed wires. Other than that it could be the wiper mechinism itself you know the wiper motor. Or its the wiper stalk. Good luck I'm glad I did'nt have that problem when I put a fuse in my re defroster. It did'nt have one ethier when i bought it lol so far so good no possesions in my car. Now has far has gremlins go lol I have alot.
11-11-2008 06:11 AM
p90xsexyguy Lol... Yeah I hope its just a bad wire, If not no biggie I do not need a rear winshield

wiper anyways. The one's that I care the most are the one's in the front.

Thanks for your reply I will check on that and follow up with you guys by this weekend.
