Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

Open Question

Turning on the left directional on my 98' dodge ram 1500, causes the wipers to turn on also. when the directional is turned off, the wipers sweep 3 more times then they shut off, causing me to believe it is shorting with the washer function. no fluid flows, just the wipers activate. a new blinker switch did not stop the problem.

SOURCE: Blinker showing up on right side when left side is signaled to come on on my 2004 Dodge Ram Hemi

either the multifunction switch is bad or the wiring harness for the blinker is worn threw in the steering column, take it to a shop before you burn up the wirng harness, even if it's fuesd it can still melt thewires and cost a ton of money to fix.

SOURCE: fuse blows for wiper as soon as i turn on the wiper switch

If you can remove connector to wipers, do it, then turn them on and see what happens. If fuse blows, it's most likely a short in wiring harness, if it doesn't, then most likely the motor. Does it attempt to move at all, before it blows? Look for bad or bare wire in harness as well.

I have a 98 dodge ram 1500 and every time I turn the left turn signal on the windshield wipers come on


Most likely a multifunction switch issue. The signals and the wipers share the same switch assembly. I would suspect the problem to be internal to the switch assembly

Tail light wire


I would check for a bare wire. It will either be that or a poor ground.

Windshield wipers quit working


Sounds like your windshield wiper motor has gone bad. I would suggest buying a book for your car, testing the wiper motor and replacing as necessary. Good luck!

On a 2002 dodge ram 1500 truck the brake lights and the turn signals and winshield wipers dont work the only brake light that works is above the cab. and the turn signal flashes on the dash like they are...


I suspect a bad multi function switch located in the left hand side of the steering column. This switch controls your high/low beams/wiper delay/windshield washer/turn signals and hazards.

Have you checked the cowl to see that it is free and clear of leaves and dirt? You may have to take the plastic off to get down into it and sweep it out with a vac. Usually it is right under your wipers.
