Hi Maddie, I'm glad to help! Below, I have posted a diagnostic procedure to see why the wipers are not working on your Dakota. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Maddie!



DIAGNOSIS
WIPER MOTOR

The following are wiper motor system problems,
tests to be performed to locate the faulty part, and
the proper action to be taken. If the malfunction involves
only the delay mode, switch, or wiring, see the
diagnosis for Intermittent Wipe Module and Wiper/
Washer Switch.
CONDITION
Motor will not run in any wiper/washer
switch position.
PROCEDURE

(1) Check fuse 10 in the fuseblock module. If OK,
go to step 3. If not OK, replace fuse and go to next
step.
(2) Check motor operation in all wiper/washer
switch positions. If not OK and fuse blows, go to step
5. If not OK and fuse is OK, go to next step.
(3) Place wiper/washer switch in LOW position and
listen to motor. If you cannot hear it running, go to
next step. If motor is running, check motor output
shaft. If output shaft is not turning, replace motor
assembly. If it is turning, drive link to output shaft
or linkage is not properly connected. Replace worn
parts and/or properly connect drive link to the motor
output shaft.
(4) Connect a voltmeter between motor terminal L
and ground strap (Fig. 1). If there is little or no voltage
(less than 1 volt), move negative test lead from
the ground strap to battery negative terminal. If an
increase in voltage is noticed, the problem is a bad
ground circuit. Make sure the motor mounting is free
of paint and that mounting fasteners are tight. If
there is still no indication of voltage, the problem is
an open in wiring or faulty wiper/washer switch. If a
small increase (greater than 3 volts) in voltage is observed,
the problem is a faulty motor assembly.
(5) Disconnect motor wiring connector and replace
fuse. If fuse does not blow, motor is defective. If fuse
blows, wiper/washer switch or wiring is at fault.
CONDITION
Motor runs slowly at all speeds.
PROCEDURE

(1) Disconnect wiring harness connector at motor.
Remove wiper arms and blades. Connect an ammeter
between battery and terminal L on motor (Fig. 2). If
motor runs and average ammeter reading is more
than 6 amps, continue to next step. If motor runs
and average ammeter reading is less than 6 amps, go
to step 3.
(2) Check wiper linkage or pivots for binding or obstruction.
Disconnect drive link from motor. If motor
now runs and draws less than 3 amps, repair linkage
system. If motor continues to draw more than 3
amps, replace motor assembly.
(3) Check motor wiring harness for short between
high and low speed circuits. Connect a voltmeter or
test lamp to motor ground strap. Set wiper/washer
switch to LOW position. Connect other lead of voltmeter
(test lamp) to terminal H of the wiring harness.
If voltage is present, there is a short in the
wiring or wiper/washer switch. If no voltage is
present, go to next step.
(4) Set wiper/washer switch to HIGH position.
Move voltmeter (test lamp) lead from terminal H to
terminal L of the wiring harness. If voltage is
present, there is a short in the wiring or wiper/
washer switch.
CONDITION
Motor will run at high speed, but not at low
speed.

Motor will run at low speed, but not at high speed.

Fuse blows everytime I attempt to use the washer fluid.


really?! the water pump?! the water pump has nothing to do with your wipers it is part of the COOLING system. as for your issue...it could be a short in the wiper/signal arm in the steering column, or it could be the motor in your washer fluid bottle. the motor is what pushes the fluid through to your windshield and if its gone bad it will blow your fuses as well. i would start with the washer fluid reservoir motor and go from there

I have a 2006 Chevy Uplander and everytime I put a new fuse in my front windshield wiped and turn it in it keeps blowing, what is causing this?


your wiper motor is drawing too much current.or there is a shorted wire.use a current meter in series with the wiper motor and see if it draws more than 10 amps.

Windshield wiper washer switch , the fuse keeps blowing 20a it goes about 5 times and then blows the fuse i put a 30a fuse in and it bypasses and it wont switch off / on


Do not put a larger amperage fuse in. you run the risk of the wiring over heating and starting an electrical fire. More than likely the wiper motor is starting to go bad and is drawing an unusually large amount of current which causes the fuse to blow. Replace the wiper motor.

2004 wipers keep blowing fuses chevy caviler


Either the wiper motor or the wires going to it are shorting out. First unplug the wiper motor replace the fuse try the wipers again if the fuse blows again then check the wire loom for a bare wire Check the colour of the wires at the plug on the motor. The most likely place for the wires to short out are at the switch. It may be an easier job to rewire ther wipers as there is a lot of wires in the loom. If you need to know how to rewire it get back to me and I will guide you through it

Windshield wiper fuse keeps blowing if I try to use the washer button.I replaced the switch. The washer motor at the bottle had a flat metal piece corroded in it. I disconnected the washer motor and it...


Pressing the screenwasher button usually energises a timer relay that provides four or five wiper sweeps so you will see the output wire from the switch does not go straight to the washer motor as in the really old days. The circuit is more complex...

If there is no obvious sign of a short circuit you really should be referring to a wiring diagram for further inspiration...

84 Eldo,windshield wiper fuse blows when washer used.switch rplcd


the wiper motor is drawing to much amperage to do its job replace the wiper motor, but first disconnect the plug to inspect the connections if they are dirty clean the plug's conections with electrical contact cleaner and plug the plug in a few times to work out any corrosion if it is present on the connectors. sometimes sometimes the wiper arms can bind so after removing the wiper motor ensure that they are not binding by moving them by hand if they are offering a lot of resistance adress this issue first (lubricate or replace) to get to the clips on the wiper motor arm connections aquire a 45 degree long neck needle nose pliers the are a very handy tool to own.
