Inconsistent wiper motor on an '85 Ram Charger

I have an '85 RamCharger, 4WD with a manual transmission. I have a rather strange problem with the wiper motor. It mostly works but occasionally it just stops. This is a rather unfortunate occurance when it is snowing/raining like it was today. I bought a reconditioned motor but it didn't work either. The sprayer however does work.

One thing worth mentioning is the last time the motor went out and I went through the electrical and mechanical trouble shooting I was backing up and the wipers started working again. It was probably completely coincidental but it happened.

I am at a loss. Is there a hidden fuse or ciruit breaker I can't find? Any help is welcome.

Thanks,
Rob

The ground wire for the wiper motor is actually the bolts that go into the firewall. As the bolts corrode, the ground is lost, causing intermittent "failure" of the wiper motor. Clean the corrosion from the bolts and the wiper motor, then run an additional ground wire from the motor to the frame...that should resolve the problem.

Visit the vehicle help board at Ramchargercentral.com...they have a sticky on the subject...or do a thread search to learn more.

Need to find a repair manuel for 1987 Dodge Ram Charger transmission


What you want/need is a Factory Service Manual for the '87 Ramcharger, it covers each transmission in depth.
Which, if i remember correctly, there were 4 transmissions available in 1987. The Torqueflite 727 3-Speed Automatic (Found in 2WD and 4WD Ramchargers), the 904 Torqueflite 3-Speed Auto (2WD only), the New Process 435 4-Speed Manual Transmission (2WD & 4WD) and the Chrysler A833 4-Speed Manual (2WD only)

Wipers on my 1985 Dodge Ram Charger don'm move. they are at a up position. I could hear the wiper motor on.


this sounds like an arm poped off the linkage, see if you can move the wipers by hand if you can then linkage poped off,remove the cowl and look at the linkage you may need to replace the linkage some cars you can buy just one linkage arm instaed of the complete unit and also some part stores sell the plastic bushing to replace worn one on linkage and it just pops on,
