We can source and supply a range of 12 volt and 24 volt wiper motors
A wiper system which fails to clear the windscreen glass causing loss of vision is a cause of Mot test fail.
If the windscreen wipers on your vehicle are not working the cause may be a fault with
Power supply and fuses
wiring and connections
body control module
Wiper motors are small high torque D.C. motors often of the permanent magnet type with armature and brushes.
Most Wiper motors are fitted with a reduction gearbox to reduce speed and increase torque.
Wiper motor assemblies may contain built in switches
Wiper motors are sometimes repairable.
Wiper motors are used to drive the windscreen wiper mechanism on :
Tractor cab glass
Self propelled harvesters
Excavator cab glass wiper motor
Marine and Boat Wiper Motor
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.
Switches built in to the wiper motor often control the wiper blade park position.
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.
Windscreen wipers frozen to windscreen in winter or sub zero temperature.

We have come across multi speed wiper motors used to build engineering projects such as linear actuators for custom applications. Some of our agricultural customers have wiper motors fitted to actuator mechanisms controlling dairy feed bin slides to enable automated cattle feeding.
Windscreen wiper motor function may be controlled by a body control module.
An actuator test can usually be performed using computerised diagnostic test equipment to check bcm functions.
