    A special thank you to asetech74. The information on the possible solution to my winshield problem was on point. My husband was able to correct the problem by tightening the screw which has come loose. Thank you again for your assistance.

Check the wiper armature, sometimes the pins come loose that connect both sides to the wiper motor, the armature should be located under the cowl at the firewall, you will see the metal arm assemblies under it, just check to see if one of them came loose. Hope this helps.

Where is the fuse for the door ajar chime in a 1998 ford f150 2wd 6 cyl truck? I have a sloppy ignition on this truck, I can start the truck without a key. But until I can replace it I need to take fuse...


Water intrusion causes f150's fuse boxes to corrupt. This is porbably your problem. Mine does the same thing, if you disconnect the fuse to the chime, you will lose your windshield wipers as well.. Check and see if your windshield wipers turn on even with no key in the ignition. Soon your fuses will start blowing left and right. You prbably need a new fuse box. Don't let anyone talk you into replacing it with a used one. My mechanic has replaced it with a used one 5 times to no avail. They were all bad. Afetr paying him almost $300 he refuses to work on it anymore. Even though it still isn't fixed. I even offered to pay the difference for a new fuse box. I have basically been screwed out of $300. So take my advise just pay the $400 for a new one from Ford to save yourself a headache.

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.
