Gerry, it sounds like a switch problem. What is the history behind this problem? When did it start? Was there any trauma to the wiper control stalk? (ie. banged badly or dampened)

Definitely worth doing the quick relay swap as I mentioned above. Really is just a 10 min test.

Good luck!

The wiper motors are the same from 2000-2005 for what I know of them. The Motorcraft part number is: # WM598

RockAuto defines any part that you're looking for at reasonable prices. You have more choices than just the Motorcraft part.

Hi Gerry05,

The wiper motor is the same for 2000-2007 model year Focuses. Here is the link to Ford Parts to find yours.

My '03 ZTW just failed safety inspection for this problem.
It occurs when you just want to have the wiper do one 'swipe' of the windshield - works normal all other times.
Guessing its a relay issue from what I read here.

<--it may say I'm a rookie, but I've changed the alternator on it & that is some trick.
