It is above the fuse box, but it must be programmed, so if you replace it the car won't start, might as well have the dealer do it.

SOURCE: 1997 dodge grand caravan wiper failure

Did they confirm no power to motor itself? I assume they did. Did they remove harness from module & clean all connections to it, and try again? Did you by any chance call dealer to confirm price of new, or call local auto recyclers for price and availability on a used one? In my experience these are not a common thing to go, but maybe one of the other techs here can jump in and give their opinion or experience on it.

SOURCE: where is the body control module located in a 2001

Not sure if this is a 98 Plymouth Grand Voyager or a 2001 Grand Caravan, but in either case:
The Body Control Module (BCM) is located under the Dash on the left side, behind the parking brake, mounted on the fire wall, to the left of the steering column. It is attached to / underneath the Junction Box. The BCM is the silver metal box attached to the black portion which is the Junction Box.

What does the body control module control

A body control module is a computer component in an automobile that checks, regulates and operates electronic devices throughout the car. There was a module for the air-conditioning, a module for the interior lighting, a module for the door locks, and so forth. A body control module gathers all these separate modules under one system so that they function together instead of separately, to make diagnosis easier for the mechanic and dealership a mechanic often is pointed to the right area by the body control module system, which sends out a code that shows what module is not responding. At times, good-day !

The switches should no be doing that at all.
The system has to get checked out. The body control module could be going out. There could be a short in the vehicle wiring harness some where.

it is going to be the cluster or the body control module. And with out seeing it I am almost certain it is the body control module . Are your door locks all working ? dodge uses the body control module it is like a computer brain and it controls everything electrical inside the cabin is the easiest way to explain. Its best to buy one from a dealer because they have to program it before it is installed. One thing you can do is go to the dealer or shop with chrysler scanner and have them check the body control module and the cluster. nothing else .
