Wipers dont work


This is a complex wiper system . Here are all the components involved !
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
?€¢
Windshield wiper/washer switch


?€¢
Body control module (BCM)


?€¢
Wiper 1 relay


?€¢
Wiper 2 relay


?€¢
Wiper diode


?€¢
Windshield wiper motor


?€¢
Windshield washer pump


?€¢
Windshield washer nozzles


?€¢
Windshield washer solvent container


?€¢
Windshield wiper arm and blade assemblies


?€¢
Windshield wiper transmission


?€¢
WIPER/SW 10A fuse


?€¢
WIPER 25A fuse


Circuit/System Description
The body control module (BCM) controls the wiper motor based on input from the windshield wiper washer switch. The BCM monitors the wiper washer switch through three separate signal circuits and a ground circuit. The windshield wiper switch high signal circuit is used to determine high speed wiper operation, the windshield wiper switch low signal is used to determine low speed, intermittent, and mist operation through the use of a resistor ladder, and windshield washer switch signal circuit is used to determine washer operation. The windshield wiper motor park operation is controlled by the BCM. The BCM recieves an input from the park switch to determine wiper blade position. When the wiper blades are at the bottom of the windshield glass in park position the wiper park switch will open and the circuit will be pulled up to B+ by the BCM. The park signal will be pulled to ground by the wiper motor park switch while the wiper blades are not in the park position.
The BCM controls the windshield wiper motor through two output controls, controlling two relays which determine the desired wiper speed, high or low
Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
The body control module (BCM) monitors the voltage on the windshield wiper switch signal 2 circuit for diagnostic purposes. If the circuit is shorted to voltage while the driver is commanded OFF, the BCM will store DTC B3715. If the circuit is shorted to ground while the driver is commanded ON, the BCM will store DTC B3715. Refer to DTC B3715.
It would be best to have a factory scan tool to diagnose this problem . it would make it easier anyway .

How do I change wiper blades 2001 Chevy blazer


Open the cap at the end of the windshield wiper arm at the cowl of the Blazer. This will reveal the bolt that secures the wiper arm to the wiper linkage.
Unbolt the wiper arm using a 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Place the bolt to the side, as you will reuse it later.
Pull the wiper arm up at the blade so that the blade of the wiper is pointing into the air. Then pull at the base of the arm, wiggling it slightly. It's a keyed gear, so it may take a little bit of workunderlined.png?1 to break it free, but with the right amount of wiggling, it will disengage.

    The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


    why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

    What happens when you activate the washers?

    go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


    don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:

    I cant figure out how to change my windshield wiper blades on 2001 ford ranger


    How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
    Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
    • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
    • Small nosed pliers
    • Latex or vinyl gloves
    • Safety goggles
    To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
    • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
    • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
    • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
    • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
    • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

    Common Problems:
    • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
    • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
    • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
    • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

    I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

    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.
