Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought a 2000 dodge 1500
and my windshield wipers don't
work. Checked fuse and relay,
they appear fine. Anyone know if
there is a common condition I
can check? Thanks.

its either the wiper motor or the switch. if its the switch you basically end up buying a whole new flasher/wiper arm combo. but i would replace the motor first, i never had the issue on any of my dodges but the motor for every other car was always cheaper than the switch.

Same issue with my 02, first the intermitent then quit working after a couple weeks. I inquire for recall but nothing came up with my vin#. Please let me know if changing the motor fixed your problem or I read it some where about some modulator issue.

try the copper ground on wiper motor to body.if everything on a multi function is not working go to ground. like a trailer.it fixed my problem just turn on wipers and move copper ground may be greenish.
