Windshield wipers will not go back down after shut off.
We have a 2002 Dodge 1500 quad cab and the windshield wipers will not go back down after we shut them off. They stay in the middle of the windshield. This started when our daughter left the key on and drained the battery. We have since tried pulling the battery cable off the recharged battery for a few minutes to reset the computer but that did not work. We checked all fused and all are good. Any help would be greatful.

THE PROBLEM HERE IS WHAT IS CALLED THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR PARK CIRCUIT, YOU MUST REPLACE THE WIPER MOTOR TO FIX IT. I DON'T KNOW WHY IT GOT BURNED OUT, WHERE THE WIPERS ON WHEN THE BATTERY WAS DRAINED?

The defrost position is the default for safety so that air always blows on the windshield in case of frost. The most common problem is a faulty blend door under the dash. In most cases the door must be calibrated with a scan tool if you replace it.
This indicates that your windshield washer fluid level is low. It's like the low fuel light, it gives you times to get some before you run out. If you check the washer fluid level and it is not low then the sensor is faulty.
Hello there: what i would suggest is to remove all of the mats that you can and stasrt the vehical and turn on the heater and let it run for a while and see if there is any water leaking from there if no water is noticed get a water hose and run water all around the windshield and than inspect from the inside to see fi there is any water coming in anywhere and if ther is than you will need a new windshield gasket there may also be a leak between the cab and the firewall so check to see if thereis any plugs that are missing or any place that hoses are going thru the firewall to see if they have a gap in them allowing water to leak in and cracks in the cab floor will get water in there too ok? so please try these i hope that this has been very helpfull for you best regards michael
There is a set screw at the botom of the wiper where it mounts on the truck. With the wipers off, loosen it and place each wiper where you wnat it to start from. Tighten the screw then test the operation to make sure the placement is to your liking.
