Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
Passenger side windshield wiper does not move, the drivers side works fine. it clicks while its on, and the passenger side is completely limp i can move it freely by my hand. what is the problem?
You must remove the wiper arm to make sure the serrations on both the arm and where it mounts to are not damaged. Turn on the wipers and see if the nub that the wiper arm mounts to is moving.
If it isn't, there is a mechanism called the Wiper Transmission. It is located in the cowl at the bottom of the windshield. The device has a number of arms. The arm that connects the right side to the transmission is off. This is usually the fault of a small round plastic piece at the end of the arm. Simply putting it back on is nit recommended because it will probably fall off again. This plastic piece is attainable at most good auto parts places.

I had this exact problem. You will need a new linkage assembly. One of the arms has broken off. If I recall, it wasnt cheap. Good luck.
