Rear wiper not touching window

The rear wiper tends to rust at the pivot point. First move it back and forth away from the window to grind up the rust that is there. After a few times it will move pretty good. Doing this dry allows the rust be devolved by some penetrating oil. Get a rag or paper towel and put behind the wiper. the spot will be about 2" from the point where it is attached to the car. It's better to use a repentant that you can allow just drops at a time rather than a spray. Either work fine but the spray goes every where. Allow it to penetrate a minute or so and move it some more to and fro from the window. Wipe it free of oil and you've got it. You might get a new blade to replace your old one. The Auto Zone type places will put it on free after you buy it.

I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan and when I push the washer for the back window it sprays on the front window. The dealer said this van only has one pump(up front). Also the power driver seat works for front...

What happens when you push the washer for the front? if this van has a frt and rear washer then there should be two buttons for the washers, if this van has two then i have seen where the pumps where connected backward so the frt sprays in the rear and the rear spray to front but again this is for dual window washers, as far as the back rest you will need to do some testing, you wiil need to test the switch for the back rest and see if its a bad switch or motor, good day.

Rear windshield wiper blade doesn't hit rear window on 2006 Chrysler Town & Country Van

the pivot pin must be rusted to the point it does not want to move, try lubing it with wd40 or equivalent lube,at the bottom of the wiper arm just before the bolt that holds it to the car is the pivot point.that's where it has to be lubed.
