## What causes windshield wipers to work intermittently?

This is usually caused by the wiper motor not getting the power that it needs due to a bad relay. In most cases, a professional mechanic will replace the intermittent wiper relay and the controls at the same time to ensure all of the supporting connections work smoothly together.
