If the strap is bad this is exactly what happens.  If it weren't for the
idiot lights in the dash you'd think there was no battery in the car.
This is personal experience with my 1990 200TQA, don't know if the 20V is

As for the wiper, I had the exact same problem, tried to "re-index" the
wiper motor, didn't work so I swapped it out.  Good news is that,
although they look completely different, the wiper assemblies from the
earlier type 44's will all bolt right in.

Post your findings, inquiring minds want to know.....
