Hello again...

So I got my new windshield wiper motor... hooked it up and nothing...

I found some videos on how to test the motor and sure enough it works outside the car... just not when mounted. I have tested the connections on the wires and that's all good... well so it seams. Any ideas? Tips?

Thanks,
Zarks

There's a black ground wire that is supposed to connect to a block/bellhousing bolt down by the starter. If it's not hooked up (common) the wiper motor won't work.

As the motor is mounted on fiberglass it must be well grounded to the frame somewhere. It sounds like your ground wire isn't connected.
