    I have an 05 Volvo vnl. The windshield wipers started stopping in the middle of the windshield when the speed is on the lowest speed or when wipers are off. When they are on the faster speeds they work normal. Would this be the motor or a relay or something else? Any help would be appreciated!

    Open the hood and look under the windshield. With the wipers on make sure the arm isn't getting hung up ok something or bent.

    If you can reach out and grab it while there running and can stop it you probably need a new motor.

    It's probably the "intermittent" circuit board in the wiper motor. My pickup did the same thing, as when on high, it seems to bypass the intermittent part. New, or rebuilt motor is in order. Not a big expense, but some motors can be a real pickle to get to.
