I've since secured the plug with strong and tightly applied cable ties and it's working fine and seems to be reliable.
how do i know if my motor is burnt out im gonna do this but my wiper shaft is seized solid and i don't want to waste my time if the motor is burnt out, its been like that the whole time i have owned it so should i assume its burnt out?
Never taken it off which is why it still doesn't work duh lol, it looks easy i was just saying that my shaft looks like it will be very hard to un seize. and yes i know how to follow instructions.
So your assuming, good luck with that... the reason it wont turn is the gear on the end of the shaft is connected to the worm gear inside the housing thats part of the electrical motor, If the shaft is stuck it wont work, if there is no power to the arm it wont work when you try to move it.....
You basically just summed up everything i have read, im assuming the worst case scenario because my jeep has 476000 kms on it and i don't know how the previous owners treated it if the switch was left on for an eternity the motor could have been trying to move for a long time, for all i know the motor could be burnt out it could happen.
