Why Aren't My Windshield Wipers Working?
In order to have safe driving experiences, you should make sure you have clean windshield wipers. Keeping your windshield clear can help avoid accidents, objects on the road, or more and this means you need properly working wipers. As your used Cadillac dealer near Minooka, we are familiar with replacing windshield wipers when necessary. Are your wipers working well? Here are some reasons your wipers aren't working to their full potential.
If the rubber edges on your wiper blades or torn or not fully intact, the wiper will not be able to properly clear moisture or debris away from your windshield. If you have a missing area of rubber, more dirt can be trapped and eventually scratch or gouge your windshield glass. Make sure you replace torn blades immediately.
Obstructions Like Ice or Snow
When the snow comes down heavy, you need to clear your wipers with a snow brush before you attempt to operate them. Wet snow can be heavy on your wipers, ultimately bending your blades or damage the motor or transmission that helps the blades work.
Failed Wiper Motor
Your windshield wiper motor is an electrical motor that can short out or quit unexpectedly. This could mean you need a replacement because, with a short out, your wipers will not work at all which could be dangerous when you are driving in harsh weather. Make sure you replace your motor as soon as you can when you notice that this has happened.
