Turn on windshield wipers but they won't turn off


The WS wipers in this truck are controlled by a central module that is called the GEM, this module can be scanned to find the fault wirththe wipers, it could be the GEM that is defective or the wiper motor is defective. It also controls the WS washers do they work?

I have a 1998 ford explorer and sometime at the same time the windows won't go up or down and the dome light won't work and the windshield wipers won't work what can it be?



  • You need to open up the drivers side door and look at that harness that stretches between the door and the door frame. Inside that harness are the wires for the electronics in the cabin and then some.

  • Over time those wires get pinched and crack and break. So you need to splice the casing (or just simply slide the harness to one side and then the other) open the long ways and inspect the wiring. Your looking for broke, split, rusted, bulging or otherwise negated wiring. The boots on either side may need to come off to look up inside for broke wires as well. Usually it's pretty evident which wires are messed up but sometimes you have to do a little digging.


  • When you find the broke wire[s] splice some new wire[s] in and use electric tape to re-insulate.


  • This is a common problem across the board with many car manufacturers and repairing the harness almost always is the fix in a situation such as yours.



  • Hope this helps.

Windshield wipers not working on 71 Corvette


Check for power at the wiper motor. The door is vacuum operated the wiper motor is electric. If there is power present the motor is bad, if not check the fuse, and then check the wiper switch. My guess is that the wiper motor is bad.

Windshield wipers don't work


The Generic electronic Module controls the windshield wipers, this system controls all the electrical items like windows door ajar warning and so on. You need to have the GEM quick tested to determine the area to look for the fault, it is very rare for the GEM to fail, the most ccommon cause is the W/S wiper switch, and next the motor's internal contacts that switch it on, or the motor itself, get the Generic Electronic Module (GEM) tested with a scanner and then get back to me with the fault codes, if I was to guess a part it would be the wiper switch it is fairly expensive so it's better to test first then replace parts after pin-point tests of components and wiring are complete and you can be sure with little room for error what is causing the problem.
