Windshield wipers are an excellent example of the old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. But prevention isn't always enough; even the newest Geo Prizm, an American version of the Toyota Corolla that was last built in 2002, is getting to the age where parts start to break down. And few things are as critical to a car's performance in poor weather as working windshield wipers.

Mute the speaker Listen to this using a male or female voice M/F Start with the simplest explanation. Use your owner's manual to find the location of the windshield wiper fuse on your Geo Prizm. Pull out the fuse and inspect it. If it's broken, replace it with a new fuse. Test the wipers to see if they work.

Replace broken wires or re-connect them if possible, using electrical tape to replace lost insulation.

If the motor is receiving electricity, you may need to have the wiper motor replaced. Either part may be difficult to find at auto parts stores; try a salvage yard or auto parts website to save some money.
