Question about 1983 Ford Econoline
My 1994 ford econoline w'shield motor stopped working.it has an intermittment/delay feature. or did.
HI. This is a possible motor issue. To confirm, use this procedure. it will help isolate the actual issue at hand.
Make sure the battery has a strong charge and is in good condition. Use a voltmeter to get a reading if necessary.
Connect a jumper wire between ground and the wiper motor. Turn the key on but don’t start the engine. Turn the wiper switch on. If the motor works, check for a corroded or loose ground connection.
Turn on the car key but don’t start the engine. Turn on the wipers. Check for voltage at the wiper motor with your voltmeter. If you get a good voltage reading, turn the key off and disconnect the motor from the wiper linkage.
Move the wiper arms by hand. If they are stuck, you have found the problem. If the wiper arms move freely by hand, go to step 5. If voltage is not reaching the motor go to step 6.
Remove the wiper motor by disconnecting the plug and removing the bolts using a wrench or ratchet. Use a pair of jumper wires to connect the wiper motor directly to the battery. If the motor does not work, replace it.
Turn on the key but don’t start the engine. Get a voltage reading across the wiper switch. If there is voltage, use a jumper wire to bypass the switch, if the motor works now, replace the switch, otherwise go to step 7. If there is no voltage at the switch, go to step 8.
Check for continuity at the wire between the switch and the motor. The wire could be loose or disconnected.
Check the wire coming from the fuse panel to the wiper switch. It could be disconnected or loose.

Can you find the fuse for the wipers? Better check that first thing...
