Having problems with your 2004 Kia Sedona ?

Rear wiper not working, replaced the fuse, still nothing. Could it be anything else besides the wiper motor or should I assume that it's the rear wiper motor. The wiper is kind of stuck in the middle of the window. It didn't make it all the way back to it's starting point.

Answers :

There are three possible points of failure; the motor, the parking switch, and finally the switch that turns it on.\015\012
\015\012Obviously, the motor is located in the hatch itself but also there will be a parking switch that supplies power to the motor after the user switch is turned off and until the blade is in the park position.\015\012The user switch is of course located on the dash or in a stalk on the steering column.\015\012
\015\012To find the culprit (and for future use around the home and cars), I recommend that everyone should own a cheap digital multimeter.\015\012They are available from Radio Shack and auto parts stores for under $20 US and if you have a Harbor Freight Tool store in your area, for under $10 US.\015\012
\015\012This will give you the means to check for voltage at the motor and/or continuity of it.\015\012You should be able to eliminate the items that are working in 20 or 30 minutes.    \015\012
\015\012These meters come with a simple Chinglish instruction sheet that will give you the basics in case you are not familiar with them.\015\012
\015\012You probably won't avoid opening up the inside panel(s) to gain access for your tests.
