Once in a while the wipers or wash does not work. Car only has 8000 miles on it. Of course its when you need them that they dont work. Dealer states they cannot replicated problem and will not do anything. Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them...thanks

Is it that there not turning on at all,or just not wiping good? I've read a lot of complaints about how shitty the wipers are. I also had to change the blades when the car was new because they streaked so bad.

Yes, fluid in the resivor. Not a wiper issue either. They just do not turn on sometims. Sounds messed up and it is!

Well, there should be a connector and motor that sits in/by the bottom of the resivor. Maybe you're having an intermitent problem due to the connector being loose or something.

Sorry to say, but it seems like an electrical gremlin.
