The first thing you need to do is check to make sure you are getting power to the wiper motor. If you have a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) you can test it yourself. Use your DVOM to check for power at the washer motor terminal. Touch the DVOM ground lead to a solid ground source such as the engine block. Touch the positive lead to the positive terminal on your motor. If there is no power to your motor, check for blown fuses and damaged wiring to the washer motor. Test the fuse using a twelve volt test light. Clip the ground lead to a solid ground source and touch the positive lead to each side of the fuse. If the test light lights up on both terminals, the fuse is good. If your test light only lights up on one side of the fuse or neither, replace the fuse. Use your needle nose pliers to remove the fuse and install a good fuse. Replace the fuse box cover and proceed to the next step. Make sure the mounting bolts are not rusted over and are making a good contact to the car. If all of this checks out ok, then you probably need t replace the motor. I hope this has been helpful

Search and fix on this one Ray. I have never found any conversion electrical diagrams or routing. From your van to shuttle bus to fed ex trucks. Rv's are bad also... Boats are really bad.

1999 gmc safari van wipers wont work


check fuse, then run a ground wire to the wiper motor and ensure the ground is good. if the wipers start to work then the motor just needs a permanent ground connected to it. if it doesn`t work then check for power at the motor if you have power then tap the motor with a hammer to see if it starts if so then the motor is bad.
