Answers :

You may check on the terminals of the wiper switch in your steering column if the wires are connected and the switch still has good contacts. Another is the relay, normally found under the hood of the car in the plastic boxes on the side. It should be written on the cover (or under it) which part is for the wiper.

Headlights dim 1998 Ford Mustang-changed headlights to HD which lasted for about a year. So put the old LED's back in but low beams were very dim.

What could be wrong.

A year ago I replace one front headlight but it went out again and it worked sometimes after the high beams had been on for a period of time. However, it was a few weeks later and the high beams would work one minute and not the next. Now the lights don't work at all on low beam or high on both sides. I'm not sure what it could be. I thought it might be a fuze or a short. Do you have an idea?

My intermittent wipers work totally fine, but when I go to low or high speed they work for a bit and then start glitching out. And by this I mean they start and stop at completely random times and I never really know if there gonna start working again. but if I go back to intermittent there fine. would this be a wiper motor problem?

I have a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire that I have been working on for a while, the low beams and high beams all work fine, now that I have rewired much of the front wiring harness, but the daytime running lights dont work and didnt work before I started.

My Buick 2000 is having electrical issues. The heater blower will work sometimes on high and other times when shut off can't get it running again. Now sometimes everything decides to work heater blower low speeds and high, all climate controls, and even the cruise. Then once vehicle is shut off does not want to work again. For some reason the cruise issue is tied into the heater blower issue at the same time. Any ideas?? thanks
