Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
During a heavy snow and cold period, front windshield wipers would not work. Some short sound under the hood after switching on the wipers and then silence. Wipers will move an inch up to 3 but no more and then reset after power switched off. Tried to tighten the wiper arm nut and was somewhat loose, didn't solve the issue.
The only thing left to try, other than replace the arms is, take those nuts right off & remove the arms. Take a small wire brush, or whatever you can find that will work and clean the splines on the pivots, and inside arms as much as possible, re-attach arms & tighten. If the metal is stripped away too much inside arm, they may have to be replaced, either from a wreckers, or new. There are some compounds out there that they say work, to add metal, but in my experience, they weren't all they were cracked up to be.
