US Rear Wiper Wiring Diagram

My rear Wiper Does not work as many people have faced here.

Was hoping someone has the Rear Wiper, Rear Wiper Switch and the Glass Close Sensor.

I plan or Removing the Sensor and Prolly making the Wiper only Work when in Drive or only when the front wipers are on.

But knowing my Luck I will just keep Replacing Bad Wiper Motors.

Why would you go to the hassle of rewiring the rear wiper if it doesn't work. Why don't you just troubleshoot the problem you have now rather than running new wires all over to control it without the switch? I think having the factory switch to operate the wiper is the best and only way to run it. Let alone your sprayer works on the same switch.

Actually By having the Wiring I can trouble Shoot my Wiper Problem.

I never said removing the Switch. I want to Bypass the Glass Sensor cause they aint worth replacing and normally dont last a year.

Have you tried shifting the arm where it goes into the rear door with it turned on? Sometimes that gets out of whack and the motor won't run. May save yourself some work.

The "forcing it when on" worked for me.....If you hear the motor spinning, without the arm moving, then it is toast though.
