If the wipers are consistent in where they stop the problem may be due to the splined shaft of the drive motor has rotated within wiper linkage attachment. Remove motor/linkage assembly remove linkage from motor and check for stripped splines on the linkage/motor. Willie

Where is the fuse for the front windshield washer motor


If you are just talking about the windshield washer pump/motor that squirts water on the front windshield, there is no separate fuse for that pump. If you are talking about the front windshield wipers themselves then the fuse for that (including the washer pump) is located is the fuse panel inside the vehicle down below and to the left of the steering wheel. Below is a diagram of the fuse layout (first picture) and I marked the 10 amp fuse for the system. As I said if you are talking about the pump/squirter motor there is no separate fuse. Inside the wiper motor itself (located basically on the firewall on the drivers side) is an internal microprocessor as well as an internal relay for that pump. If the processor or the relay is bad, both are internal and the whole wiper motor assy. has to be replaced. It's one complete unit. There is a chance that the pump motor itself could be bad. In the second picture is a breakdown of the washer fluid reservoir. In order to get access at it which is where the washer pump motors are located the right front wheel and splash guard have to be removed. I have marked the 2 washer pump motors which are mounted on the reservoir. I cannot tell you which motor is which but the one for the front has 2 wires at the connector (a black & white wire and a black wire) The rear pump motor has a violet & light green wire and a black wire at its connector. That's how you can tell which one is which. You can test the motor by either pulling it out and applying direct power and ground to it to see if it engauges or while someone is engauging the washer inside the vehicle while you are down there, see if you are geting power at the black and white wire. Check that wire while it is disconnected and using a good separate ground. If you are getting power make sure the black wire is geting a good ground. If all is good (ground & power) than more than likely the pump motor is bad. If you have a power supply problem at the black & white wire than you are looking at most likely a bad wiper motor assy but check for an open power wire from the wiper motor to the pump motor. It's not quite as simple as it used to be. The wiper motor on your vehicle has like a mini computer in it. I'm gonna say the washer pump motor is bad which is the most common. Hope I was able to help and that I didn't get too technical on you but things are not like the old days with separate motors (wiper and washer).

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!!

The windshield wipers to my Ford focus stopped working today. They worked for a little while & then stopped in the up position. You can hear the motor working but they don't move. You can move them...


Your wiper linkage has come off the wiper motor. To reconnect the linkage, first remove the wiped arms, the remove the wiped cowl. The wiper cowl bolts are located under the hood and screws through the spaces in the cowl. Reconnect linkage, reinstall cowl, reinstall wiped arms.

Where is the wiper fuse located


The wiper has a fuse in the inside fusebox. But it also have a thermal breaker.. I'm not sure where its located on your truck but likely near the wiper motor itself.. Possibly inside the wiper motor.

Seems to me your truck was bad about the combination switch that controls the wiper going bad too.

Am looking to replace my windshield wiper motor,


It is located under the hood just in front of the windshield on the firewall. You need to remove the plastic grill that covers the wiper assembly & remove the appropriate hardware holding the wiper motor in place. Good luck!

Front wipers stopped working but you can hear the motor run also


If the wipers were buried under snow/ice or frozen to the windshield, you may have blown the red 10 amp fuse located in cavity 9 in the fuse block located on the bottom left side of the instrument panel near the parking brake pedal.
In order of easiest to check:
1) ensure wipers not frozen to windshield.
2) ensure wiper arms are not loose on the pivot stud,
3) check the red 10 amp fuse.
You stated that "you can hear the motor". Which motor do you hear? The engine or the wiper motor?
If you hear the wiper motor, then the fuse is alright. Try 1) and 2) above.
