Windshield Wipers working intermittently

My windshield wipers donít work until the car accelerates. They will work as soon as I accelerate and then they wonít work when I stop at red lights. Any help would be great!

They don't work at all when the car is stopped?

On what speed setting does this happen?


Our cars have intermittent wipers on the first setting meaning that when the car is stopped, the wipers move MUCH more slowly than when the car is moving, but they should still work.

I was so impressed the first time I experienced that about the wipers. Little touches that are so cool!

Yeah, they definitely slow to a minimal rate when stopped....much slower than they would be on any given setting while driving. If they don't work at ALL when stopped even stopped for a while, there may be a problem but zero clue what would cause such an issue.
