Re: find the windsheild wiper fuse on a 96 grand caravan?
Yes the fuse COULD be the problem , its worth a shot , you will find the front windshield wiper fuse under the hood next to battery in a covered box , take the top cover off and look for # 19 , its a 30 amp fuse , also , the inside of that cover may also identify which fuse is which . cheers'

Well first I would check the fuse box for burned out fuses. Then I would get a simple dc power tester and see if the windshield wiper motor is getting power. If you don't have a bad fuse and the motor is still getting power I would say the motor has burned out.
To troubleshoot car windshield wiper problems, you need to thoroughly
investigate problems with any of its operating parts. Here are some of
the things that you need to check to determine why are your car
windshield wipers not working.
Check Wiper Motor
The wiper motor is the driving force of the windshield wiper. Feel the
motor and listen to a humming sound. If there is no humming, the motor
is the problem. Check if the motor is working properly and see to it
that its electrical connections are made properly. If you find that the
motor is dead and beyond repair, get it replaced immediately.
Check For Break in Connecting Wires
The connecting wires of the motor sometimes go loose and that may cause
the windshield wipers to stop working. Also check the battery plug
connection which the motor has. Connecting the loose wires properly or
fixing/replacing the plug might solve your problem.
Check Wiper Switch
Another wiper assembly part that can malfunction is the wiper switch
itself. Check for switch malfunction and if you find that is indeed the
problem, get it replaced from a mechanic.
Check for Bent Wiper Arms
Bent wiper arms can cause the operation of the wipers to be hampered. If
the wiper arms are bent beyond repair, get them replaced immediately.
Check For Blown Out Car Fuse
A blown up car fuse could be the culprit that has stopped the windshield
wipers from working. Check the fuse assembly under the dashboard of the
car. Replacing a blown fuse might fix the problem of windshield wipers
Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working - Things to Check
Sometimes the windshield wiper sprayer stops working which can be very
annoying. The washer mechanism is a self cleaning mechanism for the
windshield. Here are some of the things that you need to check in case
it is not working.
Check Windshield Washer Motor
The windshield washer mechanism might have been impaired due to the
malfunctioning of the wiper washer motor. Check if its working and get
it replaced if it is beyond repair.
Check Windshield Washer Fluid Level
Sometimes the washer doesn't work because the washer fluid levels are
not filled to requisite levels. Filling in fluid might restore normal
Check For Broken Washer Hose
The connecting washer hose that connects the reservoir to the nozzle,
might be broken or worn out stalling the overall operation. Check the
hose for leaks and get it replaced.
Check Washer Nozzle For Clogging
Last thing to check is the nozzle of the washer for clogging. An
obstruction in the washer nozzle might be the reason for windshield
wiper sprayers not working. Using a pin, clean the clogged nozzle. This
might restore the sprayer to the normal working condition.
i may be mistaken on if this applies to your model year but if the rear wiper does not work then check the fuse for rear wiper and replace if blown. make sure rear wiper switch is off and wiper is parked.if air bag light goes out after a few seconds then the rear wiper motor is bad causing fuse to blow. air bag module gets power for its fuse through wiper fuse.if wiper is not parked then fuse may blow when you turn yhe key on.you have two choices. replace wiper motor or remove tailgate door panel and unplug the motor
check wiper motor ground wire.make sure its tight not corroded.check wiper motor for binding or remove wiper motor hot wire to see if run with out stopping.if it run with out stopping its has a faulty switch or binding.spray pivots and linkages with WD40 to help lubricate them.if wiper motor dont continue running or stop while hot wiring it.replace wiper motor.
Could be many things. Check the fuse and relay under the hood, if you can hear the wiper motor running but the wipers arent working then they are off the track. and finally in non of those are it then replace the wiper motor.
most likely the wiper motor is bad the second wire sould be a ground if you set meter to ohms you sould be able to get a low resistance to any good ground on the vehicle if the hot wire is hot any time key is on the bcm is controling the ground to operate moter and you should have a steady continuity on the ground side with switch on the fast postion an it will read on and off in the intermitant postion if both wires test good motor is bad when you replace motor let it cycle and shut it off before installing the arm on it
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. PT Stanley
