1997 dodge grand caravan wiper failure

One shop tried repalacing the switch on the end of the turn signal lever but this didn't help. they said it was probably the body control module but this costs $1030.00(more than the van is worth). is it common to have to replace this module due to wiper failures? the wipers have failed completely.

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.

The wiper arm needs to be moved at the hub. With the hood up you should able to reach it. There is a little lever to pull out at the bottom, then lift up. Some of these are rusted on really well. It helps if you raise the arm to the up position. Turn the arm slightly and press back on and close the tab

The windshield wipers are stuck vertically and now


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.

I think you need to replace the Body Control Module (BCM), My newly replaced BCM (used) fixed my wiper problem but created a new problem which the left turn signal is not working now. Time to sell the van.

Turn signals work intermittantly on 2005 Dodge GC SXT


It sounds like your multifunction switch is faulty and will need to be replaced. The multifunction switch is a combination of your signal and wiper/washer switches all in one unit and is not servicable and is replaced as a whole unit .

Replaced battery,now rear wiper control lites are flashing.


The procedure for re-setting the HVAC control panel on a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan follows:
With ignition on but not running
1. turn knob to air vents
2. turn fan knob to ON
3. temperature setting on COLD (2X) {I have dual temp controls}
4. hold top(rear wiper) and bottom (rear wiper with wash) buttons pressing down together until all the buttons cycle through (this will require 1 to 2 minutes of continuous pressing)
Hopefully, this also applies to 1997 version. I learned this from a very helpful local Dodge service adviser

1997 Dodge Caravan "Back Up" Lights Do Not Come On


Hello
Welcome to FY
Check the reverse light switch located on the transmission. It is located by the shift lever housing on the transmission.
also there is a 10 amp fuse in your power distribution center for this too.
