It could be, but there are other things to consider. first did you check the fuses? the connector plugs under the dash? the relays in the junction box under the hood? i would check these first and let me know of the results...

Why wont my wipers go off on my 2012 dodge charger


You may have a defective wiper switch or BCM, have the dealer scan the BCM, the wipers are computer controlled like everything else in the car.

How do do I Fix windsheld wippers.


Check the relays. The check for 12V at the wiper connector. Also check for a good ground between the wiper body and any metal surface. If they check out OK, but unit still wont run. Identify the 12V input to the motor. Connect it directly to the battery positive post. Unit runs problem is with the BCM. Unit does not run unit is bad or internal electronic controls is bad. Chrysler loves to run everything through the BCM (totally unnecessary) but it makes them a pile of money since many small things lights, etc run through the BCM and when they go bad the BCM needs replacing at $600 a crack! Nice scam huh?

My 2007 dodge caravan windshield wipers don't turn off and stay at slow speed only


The wipers are controlled through the BCM (body control module) you must have that scanned to see what is going on with the system. You will need the dealer on this diagnosis.

1993 Dodge Dynasty. Wipers stopped working. Replaced fuse. Still not working. Replaced Body Control Module(BCM) located inside kickboard(passenger side). Still not working. Tried a second BCM, didn't...


BCM's are part number specific to your particular vehicle so unless you got from a dealer and had the dealer flash it for you none will work.

Caravan's had the same problem with their bcm's

Did you test the motor to see if it was working before you got the bcm's?

Did you test the wiper motor switch?

Also test the wiper motor relay.

I think you need to replace the Body Control Module (BCM), My newly replaced BCM (used) fixed my wiper problem but created a new problem which the left turn signal is not working now. Time to sell the van.

Turn signals work intermittantly on 2005 Dodge GC SXT


It sounds like your multifunction switch is faulty and will need to be replaced. The multifunction switch is a combination of your signal and wiper/washer switches all in one unit and is not servicable and is replaced as a whole unit .

these are controlled by the BCM (body control module) the dealer can test it for proper function.

I had the exact same problem PLUS my power door locks and some guages stopped working. I replaced the Body Control Module (BCM) which is behind the inside fuse box and problem was fixed. I did get the part from a salvage as the unit from Dodge was $1000. Make sure you replace with same part number and disconnect battery before working on it. One downfall of changing BCM is I now have a new odometer reading.

BCM Unit in 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan


The BCM Unit had to re-learn the systems when I put another unit in. The Windshield wipers use to come on whenever they wanted to without touching the button and the air conditioning stopped working all together, but now it works like new. Everything works perfectly but the only draw back is that the odometer jumped from 94,521 miles to 120,000 miles when I installed the new BCM Unit. I know that the miles were lower but I am happy that the van is running great and everything works just as they are suppose to. I believe that the air conditioner unit did not get the right signal from the BCM and so the motor started to smoke. I ran the engine for 10 minutes and it went away. Thanks again for the advice and have a blessed day. TED
