Question about Dodge Caravan
Remove the wiper arms. That is the portion that is visible above the bodywork. It is held in place by one nut on the arm itself but hidden below a cover that you will have to flip up. Once removed operate the wipers and see if the problem persists. If it does not then the wiper arms were misaligned. Once switched off the wipers arms and blades can be refitted. If this does not cure the problem then the wiper motor needs to be replaced. It has electrical contacts inside the gearbox of the wiper motor that regulate the stop positionand these may have been damaged. Your chances at succes in repairing are slim, but it wont hurt to open the unit and check for a shortcircuit or a loose piece of metal inside the gearbox. (The wiper gearbox is that round part of the wiper motor that the wiper drive shaft protrudes from. The cylindrical part is the motor itself) They are not very complex and a short is easily spotted.
