2000 jetta windshield wiper problem????

I have a 2000 jetta and the wipers would work but they seemed like they were going kind of slow and they would just stop working somtimes while driving. Then start working agian after a min. I put a new wiper motor in. Now it still has the same problem. Sometime i turn them on the wipers wont even go all the way, they will move a little then stop. Any ideas? Anything i should check? thanks for the help.

the stalk is the arm that controls the wipers inside the car. no, if theres a short it could be internittent near a piece of metal and causing it to lose signal from time to time. Check your connections to your motors and make sure the pins all look good, and that the connection is strong. I think you need to take it to a mechanic, it doesn't sound like your going to have the experience to trace the source of the problem.

Oh ok i thought that was called a multi-function switch but i guess vw are different. I will check the wiring from there to the motor and the connector at the motor. Also i heard that the wiper transmissons freeze up on these is that true? thanks for the help.

I wouldn't think its the motor as you already replaced it. it seems to me that there is something going on to interrupt the signal. Either that or you were sold a bad motor. Oh and it really doesn't matter what you call the arm that controls it, everyone will have a different name for things, who knows what the actual technical term is

it happend 2 me 2

ya this happend 2 me 2 wat it is, is the aliminum transmission for the wippers rust n wen it does one side/1 wiper will siexe up n stop. which makes the motor have 2 work extra hard, which makes both operate real slow. u gotta take it 2 a vw or european auto place to have it fixd. it was like 275 (included new evrything/ n a new cabon filter). if u do it urself u run the risk of cracking, breaking, chipping, or scratching ur windshield. plus its in a tricky place.
