How do I test power to wiper motor??


Recommended Posts

Grab a multimeter and the FSM and follow the wiper motor circuit from the switch to the motor. Establish that you have power going to the switch first. A test light is not the proper tool to use for debugging a circuit. You mentioned earlier you had a working motor that spun freely. Did you try that motor?

i used to have power at the switch... but i dont see power there anymore.. but i do have power at the washer plug on the blue red wire...

fuse is ok...

my motor was not working before.. and i think after i took it apart and put together its in worse shape... i just want to know my power is ok so when i get  a new motor it will work ok..

It has been suggested before to get a digital volt meter. Still don't have one. Can't test for true voltage or resistance with a test light. Nobody can help you fix these things from a 1000 miles away if your not gonna do what they ask!!!

Google a you tube video on using a multimeter. Your looking for how to perform a continuity test and dc voltage testing. That will give you help on doing tests. If you have questions after that post them here and we can help you with testing.

You should see power at the plug.  Any chance you disconnected the intermittent amp?  That's what controls the power.  I think it's in that area where you were doing all of your relay work.
