Wiper Motor Description

Most Wiper motors are fitted with a reduction gearbox to reduce speed and increase torque.

Wiper motors are sometimes repairable.

Vehicle applications

Wiper Motor Speed Control

Wiper motor manufacturers achieve two speed control by fitting an extra brush to the motor assembly.
A multi position switch may be used to select desired wiper motor speed.
Variable speed control may require use of a controller to produce a pulse width modulated supply.
Intermittent wiper operation may be controlled by a timer relay or body control module.

Wiper motor park position

Switches built in to the wiper motor often control the wiper blade park position.

Windscreen wipers blow wiper fuse

If the windscreen wipers cause the wiper fuse to blow this will be either due to a short circuit or excessive current amps draw by the wiper motor.
Possible causes:
Windscreen wipers frozen to windscreen in winter or sub zero temperature.
