Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Back Wiper wouldn't stay close to window

The vehicle is a 2005 caravan. When the back wiper is engaged, it seems to come away from the window on the return. Basically, cleaning or wiping away nothing.
... also unlike the front blades where you can pull the blades away from the windshield to clean, the back blade will not. It gets stuck on the metal attachment to the window. Is this right?

Sounds like you have a bent wiper arm. Maybe somebody in a parking lot pulled on it. You can try rebending it towards the window by removing the arm and slightly bending it. A little bend should do. I don't know why Dodge didn't make these spring loaded like the fronts.
Good luck and keep us posted.

1998 dodge caravan my battery was dead and after replacing it my panel lights are blinking window wiper and washer bottoms below radio


Same problem with my 98 grand caravan! Turn heater on high with air directional toward your face. Press & hold top back wiper button & bottom back wiper button (1 button between) until all buttons light up. Release buttons. Then it will go thru reset process. After a few mins. If top button is still lit up, repeat steps again. Found instructions written in back of my manual. Worked like a charm!

I have 2 problems. First the front end of my 2005 Grand Caravan makes a thumping noise. I thought it may be the struts or stabilizer bushings, I took it to a dealer and they said that it is niether and...


As for the front noise. Sounds like the ball joints. They wear a groove in the cup, where they sit. When they go over the lip, they make a thump sound. As for the rear wiper arm. If the arm has been taking off, folks strip the knurl teeth out of the arm. If the motor is working back & forth right, & wiper arm is tight. Oil the hinge pin on the wiper arm. They get alot of dirt on the back window. If all else fails replace wiper arm.
