1998 Ford Expedition V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 129000 miles
I recently (three days ago) changed the rear wiper motor on my 1998 expedition -this is the THIRD motor in two months- and it just did the same as the others. It stopped moving.
I can actually hear the motor running, but the arm just doesn't move.
The first motor I removed came with the truck when I bought it last Nov. 1st, 2008 and it wasn't working already, so I replaced with one of those
re-manufactured ones from Advanced Autoparts, it stopped moving within two months, but the motor actually made a clicking sound when I turned it on, so I assume the relay is working.
I replaced this ''new'' motor, again at Advanced Autoparts with one from the same re-manufacturer since it was under warranty, and three days later it did exactly the same, it works perfect one moment, the next time I want to turn it on it doesn't move, but the motor is making that clicking sound that means the relay is working, because I try the two speeds that the truck allows me to set, and I can hear that sound in slow and fast intervals.
I don't think the truck has an electrical problem because the motor receives power, it just doesn't move, if the fuse was blown it wouldn't even send power, of course, and this is driving me crazy, any help would be appreciated.
I already changed the wiper arm too, and the nut that connects the arm to the motor is tight, so the motor is not turning and leaving the arm "behind".
P.S. The front wipers work perfect, never failed, and they are controled from the same lever next to the steering wheel as the rear one, and the truck has no other electrical problems whatsoever, everything else works fine.
have the same problem?
