You did everything else. You have voltage going to motor,so I would say that was it.

91 Dodge Dakota, truck starts fine. No horn or lights. Fuses checked and were OK. Please Help.


Check voltage and ground for any component you are missing? Any applicable fuses, check for voltage at the fuse circuit, use a testlight to check for voltage. Of course ground is important also for the particular system.

2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Windows don't work.


Did you check voltage at the circuit breaker? Goes hot with the key on. Use a test light to check voltage.

Just to add, the wiring diagram I looked at, no bcm control.

At the wire harness, hinge side of driver door, tan wire is voltage and black wire is ground, check both. I saw what you replaced,but, you didn't say you had good voltage and ground for the system?

I have a 1998 dodge ram van, the windshield wipers stopped working, the fuse is ok and the washers work ok. all other functions of the switch work properly. How can you test the wiper motor and wiper


Make up a set of jumper wires that will accommodate the wiper connectors and run an auxiliary ground wire to be sure it is not a ground problem and then jump power directly the power lead connectors on the motor.

Heres a wiring diagram, this sounds like it may be a wiper module or a bad body control module, you have checked all your fuses and i assume they are good, heres a diagram to help you .afccff5.gif

The wiper controls are not working but the other controls on the modual still work


assuming the fuse is good, you can test the wiper motor by applying ground and 12v from the battery directly to the wiper motor. ensure you have the correct terminals on the motor for ground and power. there will usually be 2 or 3 power terminals and 1 ground terminal which has a black wire connected to it. the other terminals are for the different speeds and supply different voltages. you can connect to any of these wires. if the motor works then the switch is bad.
