Check to ensure the fuses are good first. also try and move the wipers on the outside with your hand while turning them on inside. if they move down and stop again the motor could be bad. checking for proper power and grounds is essentially in any good diagnostic, but wiring diagrams or a good understanding of how it works are needed for proper testing and diagnostics. More then likely the wiper motor may have given out. however in some cases the linkage or wiper transmission can let go from the motor so check to see if you hear the motor running with no wiper action. i hope this will help you

Does any have a wiring schematic for a 98 ford explorer xlt?


Best thing is to do a Web search titled "1998 ford explorer wiring diagram". This will give you results which include fuse boxes and power boxes and color coded wiring routing. Check for other items that are on the same fuse as the turn signals to see if they work. The turn signal flasher unit could also be bad.

Can not find the fuse on the front wipers, works with wash only not when turn the switch like if it were raining


The fuse is fine if the wiper work at any time. Your issue sounds more like the wiper switch went bad.

When starting it sounds like it is puttering and then stalls out. If I try to start it again, it wont start. Almost like it is flooded. I have a 1998 ford explorer with a little over 117,000 miles on...


I've got the same (1998 exploder). Someone went through the neighborhood trying to syphon gas. My truck started then sputtered out and now wont start. Gas is showing half tank plus I added 2 gallons Spark is good and gas pressure is reading 40psi(normal). Everyone else's including my 2005 Chrysler Pacifica started. I need help. Did you find something out that may help?
