Question about 1995 Dodge Ram

1995 dodge ram 1500 wipers don't work

Wipers stopped working after a heavy snow. The wipers went up, and stopped. I pushed them down, and there was still resistance. Now, I turn the knob and nothing happens. I checked the fuse, and it is fine. I changed it just in case, and it's definitely not that. Guess it's maybe the motor or switch. Just wondering where to start, and how difficult it would be to fix.

remove wiper arms at the shaft, right at the cowl. each will have a nut on them but it is covered by a piece of plastic that will snap up for access. take nuts off and remove wiper assembly. turn key on turn wipers on make sure shafts turn when on, then turn off the shafts to stop in park position. then reinstall wiper assemblies in their park position .

SOURCE: Front windshiled wipers not working

The only thing left to try, other than replace the arms is, take those nuts right off & remove the arms. Take a small wire brush, or whatever you can find that will work and clean the splines on the pivots, and inside arms as much as possible, re-attach arms & tighten. If the metal is stripped away too much inside arm, they may have to be replaced, either from a wreckers, or new. There are some compounds out there that they say work, to add metal, but in my experience, they weren't all they were cracked up to be.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: wipers not working,will not come out of 4x4 dodge dekota 2001

I knew that when mine did this it had too be more than a coincidence. So I started at the fuse panel and BINGO! the 20 amp fuse for the wipers (#5 on the 2001) was blown. When I replaced it everything went back to normal. Wish ALL repairs were that simple and cheap!

Sounds like it could be the gear. The gear and motor come as a single assembly.

You will need to find where in the linkage the problem is. I would start taking it apart to see what is and what isn't working correctly. Autozone website has free repair manuals available online.

Windshield wipers stopped working with heavy snow cover


The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.
