1987 Caravan windshield wipers

#1

Hello, I bought a good running and clean ’ 87 Caravan last year and it’s a good one. When I bought it, the speed of the windshield wipers were very slow. The delay part of the wipers didn’t work. Recently, the wipers quit working all together. I checked the fuses, they are fine. I have an ’ 89 Caravan parts van that I removed the “tested and working” wiper motor. Installed it and it’s still not working. What else am I missing here? I’m always interested in hearing your responses. Thanks in advance. John

Do you hear the wiper motor run?

No the wiper motor is not running. However when I turn the wipers on, it makes the clicking sound like the switch is good.


#4

Maybe the contacts at the plug to the wiper motor are dirty or slightly corroded? What is the best way to clean them to make a good contact? I’m trying to eliminate all the possibilities.


#5

There’s a wiper control module in the circuit that controls all the wper speeds. You could be looking at a problem in that area.

Make sure power to the control module is good before you replace it.

Any idea where the control module is located?
