the wiper motor may have become inoperable. check for power to the motor . also u may have power and a good motor but somethin could have caused the wiper arm to bend and become afixed. check the arm and pull it away slightly from the windshield to see if it will move.

Corrosion could be the possible cause of the wipers being stuck. Apply some cleaner where the wiper arm is attached to the transmission assembly. This should rectify the problem hopefully.

It pretty much has to be one of three things. The fuse, the motor, or the linkage. First check the fuse, under the glove box on the passenger side. Then pop the hood, inspect the linkage for any stiffness or binding. Check the connections on the motor.

the cause of your Dodge Intrepid wipers being stuck uptight is that it may be blocked in some cloth or any unwanted materials,or the cause also may be that the nuts or bolts may get rusted

One cause could be a burned out motor that actuates the wipers. Another cause could be foreign material obstructing it (such as ice).

blown fuse if it was in that position when it blew or a short in the wiring that permanently keeps them stuck in one position


Answer by  coronato (65)

The possible cause for the wipers to be stuck upright is either a bad wiper motor, or the gears and linkage that make the wipers move are stripped. It could also be a bad switch or fuse.
