2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 - Intermittent wiper problem

Hi, here is an odd-ball problem I need some help with. My wipers work on the low speed and high speed settings but not on any of the intermittent wiper settings. I have a wiring diagram for my truck but it is not the most helpful in diagnostics. Here is what happens...You can turn the wipers on low and they work. You can turn them to high and they work. Now, if you initially turn them to intermittent, they don't work in any intermittent position. If you switch them from low speed to intermittent, they keep on wiping on slow and will eventually stop. Now based on my wiring diagram, I don't think there is a problem with the motor connections. I am guessing it is either the body control module or the multi-function switch. Does anyone know of a method to determine where the fault is? Thanks a lot. Al

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 diesel slt no intermintant wipers have installed new ctm and programmed by the dealer new multifunction switch and wiper motor still only works on high no delay or lo

The motor could have a bad low winding. Intermittent always uses low.
The problem could also be a bad connector pin going to the motor low winding. If you have a schematic, you can ground the pin to see if low runs.
Hope this helps.

What is the relay location in the relay box

The problem would be in the stalk controller. The wiper Relay is what provides power to the motor for all settings, the delayed wipers, low speed, and high speed. There are not 3 relays, but 1 for all functions. If you have power to the high setting, the relay is working.

Wipers don't work in high speed and when intermittent wipers are set they stop in the middle of the windshield.

Yes that is likely a switch problem. Before you buy any parts have a shop confirm my guess.

1996, Grand Voyager.. wiper.. intermittent wipers ...all Ok low speed high speed check relay in fuses box... interchange 2 relays... problem remains.. need schematic to trace...

Well I would guess its the contacts in the switch itself since they get moved manual by your hand the most. A motor either works or don't work no mater what speed its running..Just trying to help

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.

i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
