Have had the same problem when i got my car. It happens the first time i used the rear wiper, it stops as well at different spots. Went to the dealer he told me that connot be. We tried again and suddenly it works fine. Never had the same since then.

Do you mean it sort of skips across the glass? That's what mine does and it's rubbish, I think it is down to the wiper blade.

yeah mine leaves streaks all through the arc
i think it's just terrible wiper blade, i went to buy one but kinda hard to find cause it's so small it's not very common

More than likely the motor has a bad spot in it.

on my pat the rear glass was replaced and when they put the wiper back on they did not tighten it up enough and it did not work properly. i just tightne the nut a bit more and it works fine now. Hope you get it fixed....

I figured it out myself It is # 16 fuse inside your fuse box it is weird because it says it is only for accessory power but it does effect the wiper??? I just decided to go to the back to the basics and check my fuses and I saw it blown and then I tried the wiper and it worked!!

I actually had my rear wiper motor replaced by dealer because it was doing the jumping thing.

they probably just changed the fuse lol.No problems since changing the fuse. I thought I would post this in case anyone else had this weird problem.The other weird part was that my 12volt accessory worked for a while before it went out completely (I was wondering why the green light for my GPS was not bright green like it usually is)

I have been having this issue since last July! I'll be damned if it wasn't Fuse 16 just like you said too. I thought for sure I had checked them all... But anyway rep points coming your way! Thanks!

If this is realy a fuse only problem then the thread should be moved to the knowledge base!

After replacing the fuse it worked that day...

I went to use it again this last week and guess what? Yup the fuse was already blown and I do not use the cigarette lighter, or the accessory outlet. I wonder whats causing the damn thing to blow?

I replaced mine with a 20 amp fuse instead of 15 amp and have never had a problem again.I think it has to do with whatever your plugging in to your cigar lighter I don't think it was all supposed to be all in one (accessory and rear wiper) but who knows
