Wiper Motor Help
« on: June 23, 2020, 05:28:20 PM »
Hi all,

I'm having a problem with my wiper motor, the switch has 6 cables, but my wiper motor only has 2 plugs...
It looks like there can be an additional 2 plugs installed but not sure where to go from here, hoping someone could help me out or steer me in the right direction.
Had a look at the FAQs, but couldn't find anything similar to this.
I've uploaded a couple of photos for reference.

Thanks for the help in advance...
Cheers

What year is your moke?
the motor looks like it is from an early moke with single speed and no self park, the wiring for later 2 speed self
parking motors have a lot more connections.

Hi Moe,

The Moke I have is a 76, but I got the motor from someone else since I didnt have one when I bought the moke...

I won't be driving it out in the rain much if at all. Its mainly to just get me out of trouble if rain comes over mid drive or something like that.
Would I still be better off hunting down a newer style wiper motor from somewhere? Or persevere and try and get this one working with only two out of the six wires?

Cheers

you could use the one you have if you can put up with single speed and no self park while you wait for the right one to show up.

Hi,

Not sure if you have solved this already, but have some info for you.  I successfully fitted a single speed motor to my 1980 moke temporarily.  One of the terminals on the motor goes to a black twin-wire ground coming through the firewall near the motor (though any ground will do).  The other terminal connects to either the Blue Green or Red Green wire coming from the switch.  Either works and does not change the fixed speed of the motor.

Cheers, Graham
