The WS wipers in this truck are controlled by a central module that is called the GEM, this module can be scanned to find the fault wirththe wipers, it could be the GEM that is defective or the wiper motor is defective. It also controls the WS washers do they work?

The windsheild wiper relay might be stuck or broken. Try tapping it with something or replace it. Could also be the the switch (lever that you control the wipers with) i hope this helps and good luck with diagnosing your problem.

SOURCE: Rear windshield wiper problem on 99 Expedition.

2 ways of dealing with this. Install a new motor or put up with it until you install a new motor. I usually give it a very light tap with a hammer or a wrench & they start working fine at least for a while

SOURCE: Windshield wiper will not turn off unlessfuse removed/vehicle off

suspect a shortcircuit in the stalk switch.
1has moisture or rain got into the switch? see if problem goes after a few days
2. use WD40 or contact cleaner into the part of the switch where the cables connect to the stalk you may have to open up the steering column or possible with thin straw nozzle supplied with the can.

3. switch is defective and needs to be replaced.

Back windshield wiper won't turn on


The rear wiper has a dedicated fuse. It's the 10A R/WIPER fuse in the relay block. This supplies power to the rear wiper and washer switch and the rear wiper control unit. That unit also gets power from the 20A AUDIO (!) fuse in the engine room fuse box. If the fuses are OK, the ignition switch is in the ON position, and the rear wiper and washer switch is turned on the rear wiper should work. If not check all the components described to find where the loss of power is occurring

Windshield wipers won't cut off and I'm having trouble locating the fuse box to turn them off


The fuse panel is located behind the left hand side of the instrument panel. In your car, the Park switch appears to have failed ON it to park the wipers. the park switch is an integral part of the wiper motor assembly, so replacement would mean having to replace the wiper motor assembly as a unit ... good-day!!

When I turn on the vehicle the headlights and windshield wipers come on and won't turn off. When I turn the key off there is a delay before it actually turns off and the headlights won't turn off.


This sounds like an issue with your ignition switch. Basically what is happening here is that you are shutting off your vehicle, but the ignition switch is not working correctly and is allowing certain accessories to stay on.
