Re: 1997 Dodge Caravan
You could either have a welded contact at the wiper relay or the shorted wiper switch.
after you unplug the harness, check the relay, remove again the harness and check the relay for a welded contacts. see if the contacts are close even without power. if they are, replace the wiper relay.
if they are not close, then check the wiper switch. that could be the problem.

remove wiper arms, remove cowl, un plug wiper harness, remove nut from wiper linkage, remove wiper motor. to install reverse procedure. special tool needed is a battery post/wiper arm removal tool. 10.00 bucks at your local car parts shop. help this was helpfull
You probably have a stripped gear for the wipers where the turning motor transfers the rotating arm into a back and forth movement. Hopefully you can find a replacement at your local parts store. If not, try this web site and look for wiper motor assembly http://www.car-part.com
pull the wiper arms off. turn the wipers on intermittent so they work once. then put the wiper arms back on in the down position and tighten bolts on wiper arm. They should then be timed correctly. Please rate my post.
YOU NEED A REPAIR MANUAL. ALSO YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE COWL COVER WIPER WASHER HOSE AND DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS AT WIPER MOTOR..THE WIPER ARMS HAS TO COME OFF.BUT GET A REPAIR MANUAL.IT WILL MAKE YOUR JOB EASY.
This sounds like the wiper motor has failed. You can pick one up at the local parts store. If not mechnically savvy, I would recommend taking to shop for working in tight areas that these can be. But, otherwise, the motor is on the fire wall, unplug, remove screws(4), exchange with new, and reassemble as removed. I hope this helps.
Did they confirm no power to motor itself? I assume they did. Did they remove harness from module & clean all connections to it, and try again? Did you by any chance call dealer to confirm price of new, or call local auto recyclers for price and availability on a used one? In my experience these are not a common thing to go, but maybe one of the other techs here can jump in and give their opinion or experience on it.
