Hello, community.

I confused and really need your help.

Faced with weird issue with wipers. Do not know a lot about background of this car, but wipers got in service mode and never back to normal. Was changed 2 motors, they back to live, but stop working after some time. If I remove the wipers and turn on the motors work long and properly. As soon as I attach the wipers back they stop working.

Wiring checked.

Please tell me where to dig?

Riding a little, I tried different advise. Used silicone for gum - effect for several minutes.

As a result, there is a problem, but a little different. They work in the rain, but can hang in the upper position, helping to slightly push the right wiper.

If I use the fast mode, they work very quickly and freeze.

Has anyone encountered the problem of wipers?

Have you actually replaced the blades themselves yet?
There is threads here that mention corrosion on the negative ground for the battery being the(among other things) culprit for the wipers stopping like you have described.
Having two motors for the wipers and controling them with a module is a real overcomplication for something that has worked just fine for decades without all that being needed.
Mine would stop constantly, very dangerous in winter with snow and salt all over windshield.

Thanks for your reply.

So, in a nutshell.
I bought new blades, two motors, checked the battery, and visited various specialists to find out what was wrong with them.
All without result.

Once I accidentally noticed that my wipers are different from the wipers on another Ford Focus 3.
It looks like my wipers were swapped. 🤔
