Take a look at the battery and check the power cables, some of these fords use multiple positive cables at the battery to feed two power boxes and the starter.

Make sure the power connections are good also follow the positive cable to the under hood fuse/relay box and make sure connection is clean,tight and connected.

This sounds like a connection problem but did you check the inside and under hood fuses??? this sounds like it could also be a fuse, so just wondering if you checked both boxes of fuses,

Now try checking ALL the ground wires connected to the frame under the dashboard. If any one of them is broken off or loose that is a cause of multiple outages.

SOURCE: Winshield Wipers don't work

replace relays 30 & 32 in the engine compartment fuse box near the battery. they both control windshield wiper function. there are a group of six relays near the back of that panel..... looking at the group from the front it's the two relays on the left starting from the top one and going to the next one down.

SOURCE: power winidows, wipers, dome lights not working on 1998 explorer

This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.

These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.

New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

Good Luck

02Ford Taurus windows windshield wipers locks wont work


Sounds like the wire you used for power was oon the circut for all those other things, or if you pulled the fuse box down to hook radio up through the fuse box, you may have grounded out some wires, or knocked them loose. Use a test light or voltmeter and make sure you have power at the fuse box for wiper,dashlight, trunk release, door lock fuses.

2001 ford expedition radio and wipers wont come on


First check out the fuse box under the dash board and find the fuses and relays indicated. Swap out the relays to test the (possible) bad one AFTER you check out the fuses!

Windows, windsheid wipers and radio will not work


There should be a fuse box under the dash on passenger side. There are fuses to these and this is probably the issue. It may also be a wiring issue inside the fuse box.

Winshield Wipers don't work


It is probably the relay. They are not very expensive. I would not try to rig this if you can avoid it. It leads to a risk of fire when people try to wire around the existing system.

Call your parts store and get a price quote on the relay. You will need to tell them if you have delay wipers or not.
