THOR #14949
Thor Vegas Windshield Wiper not working

Hello. I picked up my 2017 Vegas today...a sunny day. Decided to try wipers when I got home. Nothing. Anyone have a schematic or suggestions? I'll call Thor Monday. They did adjustment per my request prior to pickup. Never thought to test. .

Tyvm.

Welcome to the site.

Early Axis/Vegas units had defective washer pumps that would blow the wiper fuse the instant you hit the washer button. Check the wiper fuses. (This has been fixed for a while now.)

Log into Thor's owner's resources site with your VIN; you'll find tons of info there (not sure if there is anything related to the wipers, however).

I thought mine didn't work for an hour I checked everything then noticed the wiper switch left of the steering wheel on the dash and not on the steering column stick even though it reads it.

I had the same problem with mine the first time it rained after I got it. Then the GF told me to look at the switch on the left side of the dash.

And she never even opened the bag with all the manuals (including Ed's masterpiece)!

Talking Joke was on me!!

Well, likewise, I LOGICALLY concluded that the windshield wiper on the steering wheel column operated the windshield wipers!!! As others found, there is ANOTHER switch off to the left, not really identified. Voila!!! All of that cussing, texting to the salesman, calling the service and Thor, wiggling, jiggling the fuses for nothing!! I read all of the manuals, but nothing indicated this windshield wiper switch alternative.

Now, just curious, what DOES the column wiper switch operate? Anything?

Doesn't matter. All is well...for now!! Thanks to all for the input!!

Happy Trails!!
Just Jenny!!

Nothing: the stalk isn't connected to anything.

Now if you ask: "why....?" Apparently Thor got some of the stripped chassis without a wiper stalk so they built them all that way. How do I know? Our Axis does not have a wiper stalk on the steering column.
