Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

Open Question

I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. Wipers chatter very badly on every upstroke. I have changed blades, arms, and windshield. I have tried several brands of blades and several brands of washer fluids, including Rainex. The problem continues unchanged. Oddly, the wipers do not chatter on a dry windshield. Any ideas?

It is on the firewall under the hood. It has 3 to 4 bolts holding on. Be careful when taking it out to see how the new one lines back up. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 dodge shadow.but the windshield wipers isn't working.I checked the motor is well,the terminal voltage is 12V,how can I continu to repair the 1992 dodge shadow's windshield wipers?

You posting is slightly confusing but I gather your windshield wipers stopped working.
The repair method is as follows;
) Check the fuse.
) Check the wiper motor. Turn the wipers on and listen for the hum of the motor.

If you hear the hum then the linkage has probably come loose. You will have to take the covers off
to get to the linkage for the wiper. You can either repair the parts, get salvage yard parts or replace with new part$.

If you do not hear the motor hum then you should verify electricity is getting to the motor. A simple
voltmeter can be used. If the motor is bad you can replace it. Call some auto supply stores for after-market motors or call salvage yards for parts.

SOURCE: I have a 1997 Dodge grand caravan. Wipers go on with switch off

It's the body control module. I had the same thing happen with my caravan. It eventually evolved into the following problems no interior lights or chimes, no remote mirrors, dash lights and instrumentation goes out and ABS light comes on, no lighted vanity mirrors, blinking recirc & a/c buttons, no high beams. THe dealer said a BCM would be $700.00 with exchange otherwise w/o exchange 1200. I found one online - ebay. BE CAREFUl...if you don't have security on your vehicle DO NOT buy a unit that has the security feature..your vehicle will not run if you install this. match the part number off of your unit but also match the features.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the windshield wiper arms on a

There are no adjustments on the wipers. The arms come off to realign. Pop the wiper arm cap off with a very small flathead screwdriver theres a liitle opening slot to do this. Remove the nut. Pull wiper off straight, use pulley if needed. If the tenson is gone in the wiper arm replace. The springs go bad in the rear arm from dirt.

SOURCE: my 2002 dodge grand caravan turn signal and wipers

Probably is the Body Control Module if you have checked the fuses in the fuse box and none are blown and you have verified power is coming to the wiper and signal switch. One simple fix you can try with the battery disconnected it to unplug and then replug the wriring harness to the BCM that fixed a Chrysler T&C that had the same problem. I also include what someone else gave as advice.
The body control module is located under the dash, directly behind the junction block that contains all the fuses/relays/plugs. The way you could verify that the wiring up to the bcm (from the wiper control) is working, before you go to the expense of replacing it, would be to locate the black plug on the bottom of the bcm (if you look under the junction block/bcm assembly you should see a gray connector and a black connector protruding from the underside of the bcm) and pull that plug, which is the one closer to the cowl. I believe you will find a dark green/yellow wire on pin #7 (from the wiper control) of the plug and a black/light green wire on pin #10 (ground). You may probe those wires with straight pins inserted thru the insulation so as to contact the internal conductor, then replace the plug (but make sure the straight pins don' touch oneanother), turn on the ignition switch to 'run', and measure the voltage between the two pins, you should find that the voltage will change proportionately as you cycle the wiper control through the six different positions of intermittancy. If not, then there is something the matter with the wiper control or its wiring. If the voltage is changing proportionately, then the manual does say to replace the bcm as the solution for that problem.

How do i change the windshield wipers on a 2001 dodge neon?


I don't know if your trying to get the wiper arm off or just the refill? If your trying to wiper arm off, there usually a small clip that you pry out to remove arm.
If you just talking about refill blade, I don't know w/o looking at it? Your local auto store might replace the refill blade for you, where applicable?

I need to replace the windshield wiper blade


The 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan takes 28" wiper blades on both sides front and a 18" rear wiper. See related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only - be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.

How do i remove the windshield wiper blade


The 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan has the most common hook-end wiper arms. See related links below for installation videos. Also, purchase the replacement blades first and there will be additional instructions/illustrations on the replacement packages. Locate and press the tab or button where the wiper blade is inserted into the hook of the wiper arm and pull wiper blade out of hook. You may have to rotate and flex the blade to make enough clearance for the hook to pass through.

Windshield wipers are hitting each other on a 2000 dodge caravan


Put them in park position at base of windshield where they normally are when turned off, flip cap up at end by pivot, loosen nuts on top slightly, move arm slowly to where it should be normally, and tighten nuts. Careful, not to tighten too much, just real snug.

Windshield wiper arms


The wiper blades might be the wrong size (too long). Or the arms might have to be removed and repositioned so they line up in the right spot at each end of their travel. If the wipers look like they're flopping about or going at different speeds right from left, then the linkage is broken and you'll need to buy a good used linkage from a wrecker.

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.

Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.
