1995 Ford Ranger wipers don't work



Checked for power @ the motor. Have power at all times at one terminal. No additional terminals hot with key on, wiper switch on.

Wiper relays (2) appear to be okay.

Hot wired two wires in the harness connector and motor operates on intermittant.

Second problem, maybe unrelated- dome light and door chime do not work when either door is opened. Dome light bulb appeared to be burned out- replaced. Also, headlights on chime does not operate.


I’m willing to bet that the lights on chime and dome light problem are because of a bad door switch (car doesn’t know when you have the door open.) For the wipers, if you can get them to operate by “hot wiring” them, and the fuse is good, I’d say that’s the switch at fault.
