Rear wiper not working
« on: November 01, 2019, 05:56:34 PM »
Hello, have issues with my rear wiper not working, I’ve replaced the motor and all connections to it that plugged in looked fine, are there any other places I should look?

At the top corner with the hatch open there is a rubber boot for the wires to run through, there could be a broken wire in there.

Is the motor getting 12v?

If your boot light is also not working, it's probably a bad latch.  There's a microswitch in it which can fail, and when it does, you get no wipers or boot light.
