Slow wipers was created by wejxf03
I recently took my 2001 auto Jimny out for a spin and the wipers worked very slowly across the screen but speeded up a little when I used the washers. They did speed up a bit after use for a while.
Battery/alternator are good.
Just wondering if the motor and/or wheel boxes needed greasing?
Anyone else had this and know the cure.
Thanks in advance, John

Stupid question but was it raining? If i leave my wipers on when I go under Asda's car park they will slow significantly as they dry the screen and speed up again as the rain resumes when I go back outside.

Yes it was lightly raining and did get better when I used the washers so perhaps it's normal, just different to modern cars.

I think it can also be a problem with older more worn blades, certainly mine always seem a bit stronger when the blades are new. Or that is psychological.

Hi there did we a resolution to this query, I ask because I visited my daughters Jimny in Scotland to day , the first time since she took delivery a month ago.
Anyway as I test drove it .....the wipers are slow, on 2 speed they are what you'd expect from normal speed.
The blades are fine and I can confirm it was raining .......oh yes it WAS raining.

Mine have gone back to normal speed all on there own after a bit of use.
May of been as I hadn't used them for a while?
Mine is of 2001 vintage.
Blades look good but have ordered new ones anyway.
