Hi Kathie!

Yes, there is a fuse for the wiper motor.
It will either be located in the fuse panel inside the Truck, or the one under the hood (near the battery somewheres)

If it's not the fuse, chances are its your wiper motor.

Best of luck

Winshield wipers dont work on a 97 dodge ram. fuse is good, cant find prob

Check to see if you are even getting power to the wiper motor itself. If you are then you most likely need a new motor. 1 other thing, do you hear the motor running? if you do Dodge has this little white ring kind of thing (that's the best way I can explain it) and those are real common in breaking. If this is the case most of your auto part stores have them in stock as they are a common problem in dodges. I hope for your sake that it's the motor because getting at that white ring is a pain. You need to get to the mechanical "linkage" connecting your wiper linkage to the motor. Sorry but that's the best way I can explain it to you if this is the case. I hope thsi helped and good luck.

My turn signals quit working suddenly on my 1997 Dodge Ram Van,the flashers work fine.

You might check to see if you find two separate flasher units under your dashboard. If not, the relay that connects the L-R sides together could have fused contacts.

Windshield wipers quit working

Sounds like your windshield wiper motor has gone bad. I would suggest buying a book for your car, testing the wiper motor and replacing as necessary. Good luck!

1997 Dodge Ram 3500 windshield wipers wont stop

If your voltage regulater in the charging system (distributor, altinater, battery, PCM) was replaced then the entire PCM where the volt. regulator nis held should have been replaced, so hopefully it was.
To check the charging system make sure when the truck is running the battery reads 13.5 to 14.5 volts (may go as high as 16) and when not running the battery should be at 12 volts. Any high and low voltages meen that the regulater or PCM are still bad and could be your problem.
to check the wiper circuit, pull its fuse and place a continuity tester over the fuse positions terminals, should have continuity, if not you have a wiring issue and the circuit needs tested at different sections until the break is found. Also the tester to check the wipers ground, place one test lead on a known/good grounding spot and the other on your wiper ground if there is no continuity than you are not grounded and you have to find the short.
You can get a Haynes repair manual that has all circuit diagrams in it, if your able to read circuit diagrams, hope this helps.

Wipers and spray will not work, no fuse guide.

fuse #8 in the fuse box inside is the fuse for the wipers and washers....if it is good there is a couple other possibilities the multifunction switch or the intermittent wiper module
