Fuse number for winderwiper


Hi Maddie, I'm glad to help! Below, I have posted a diagnostic procedure to see why the wipers are not working on your Dakota. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Maddie!



DIAGNOSIS
WIPER MOTOR

The following are wiper motor system problems,
tests to be performed to locate the faulty part, and
the proper action to be taken. If the malfunction involves
only the delay mode, switch, or wiring, see the
diagnosis for Intermittent Wipe Module and Wiper/
Washer Switch.
CONDITION
Motor will not run in any wiper/washer
switch position.
PROCEDURE

(1) Check fuse 10 in the fuseblock module. If OK,
go to step 3. If not OK, replace fuse and go to next
step.
(2) Check motor operation in all wiper/washer
switch positions. If not OK and fuse blows, go to step
5. If not OK and fuse is OK, go to next step.
(3) Place wiper/washer switch in LOW position and
listen to motor. If you cannot hear it running, go to
next step. If motor is running, check motor output
shaft. If output shaft is not turning, replace motor
assembly. If it is turning, drive link to output shaft
or linkage is not properly connected. Replace worn
parts and/or properly connect drive link to the motor
output shaft.
(4) Connect a voltmeter between motor terminal L
and ground strap (Fig. 1). If there is little or no voltage
(less than 1 volt), move negative test lead from
the ground strap to battery negative terminal. If an
increase in voltage is noticed, the problem is a bad
ground circuit. Make sure the motor mounting is free
of paint and that mounting fasteners are tight. If
there is still no indication of voltage, the problem is
an open in wiring or faulty wiper/washer switch. If a
small increase (greater than 3 volts) in voltage is observed,
the problem is a faulty motor assembly.
(5) Disconnect motor wiring connector and replace
fuse. If fuse does not blow, motor is defective. If fuse
blows, wiper/washer switch or wiring is at fault.
CONDITION
Motor runs slowly at all speeds.
PROCEDURE

(1) Disconnect wiring harness connector at motor.
Remove wiper arms and blades. Connect an ammeter
between battery and terminal L on motor (Fig. 2). If
motor runs and average ammeter reading is more
than 6 amps, continue to next step. If motor runs
and average ammeter reading is less than 6 amps, go
to step 3.
(2) Check wiper linkage or pivots for binding or obstruction.
Disconnect drive link from motor. If motor
now runs and draws less than 3 amps, repair linkage
system. If motor continues to draw more than 3
amps, replace motor assembly.
(3) Check motor wiring harness for short between
high and low speed circuits. Connect a voltmeter or
test lamp to motor ground strap. Set wiper/washer
switch to LOW position. Connect other lead of voltmeter
(test lamp) to terminal H of the wiring harness.
If voltage is present, there is a short in the
wiring or wiper/washer switch. If no voltage is
present, go to next step.
(4) Set wiper/washer switch to HIGH position.
Move voltmeter (test lamp) lead from terminal H to
terminal L of the wiring harness. If voltage is
present, there is a short in the wiring or wiper/
washer switch.
CONDITION
Motor will run at high speed, but not at low
speed.
Fig. 1 Voltmeter Between Terminal L and Ground

Motor will run at low speed, but not at high speed.
Fig. 2 Ammeter Between Terminal L and Battery

1990 f150 ignition


he probably hooked up the toggle because the ign. swith was bad .the key turns the acuator which turns the switch . it sounds like you replaced the wrong piece . when you unhook the connector on the switch follow the wires to make sure he didn't cut the wire . hopefully he just added a wire to activate the solenoid . Good Luck

Wiper on 2003 ford explorer. when turned on a noise comes from under dash and wipers dont work. they will work if I turn on switch and move the wipers, they will cycle once.


it sounds like the problem is the wiper motor if they work when you move them by hand.the motor probably has a bad spot in it,first try hooking up a jumper wire from the battery ground and the other end to the wiper motor body and make sure its a good ground at the motor.if the wipers work alright then permanently hook up a ground to the motor and body,as the motor will have a bad ground not allowing the wipers to work.

Need to know what connections on wiper motor is hot and ground


shop4class, You didn't mention what kind of vehicle you are working on but the easiest way to check this is to look at wire colors. Ground wires are usually black. Power wires will usually vary in color but the easiet way to be sure is to get a test light and connect one end to the negative side of the battery. Turn the wiper to the on position and start to probe the plug. The test light will glow when you have found the power side of the motor. To test the gorund side of a circuit, you have to reconnect your test light to the positive side of the battery and then probe the black wire. The test light will glow when you found the right wire. Be careful when doing this as you may touch another power wire and start to blow fuses. To avoid this when testing the ground side of a circuit the best thing to do is to turn the wipers to the off position. Good luck with this.

THe wipers in my 2004 escalade are not functioning


Sounds like one of two things. Either the circuit board on the wiper motor is bad or the switch on the column is bad. Just to let you know GM had a serious issue with the circuit boards on their wiper motors. Might be covered under a recall you can check with the local dealer.
