Wiper motor

Asked by Jan 07, 2017 at 02:34 PM about the 2000 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. The windshield wipers
seem to be weak as in they don't move unless I
give them a little push or pull with my hand then
wipe for a little and then they stop. Any way to fix
this problem ? I believe I need to replace the motor
but not to sure

It definitely sounds like the wiper motor is dying. There's a circuit breaker inside the motor that trips for a few minutes if the motor overheats or is laboring too hard. Like if trying to push snow. In your case the motor is probably laboring because it's worn out. HTH. -Jim
