do you have a multi meter on hand ?

you have the drivers side wiper arm off and the passenger side once the nut is off it will not pull or pry off ?

Cant get either wiper arm off. Wipers work on high speed but not on low speed or intermittent and washer doesn't work. Changed some fuses last week and this was result. Thought it might be circuit board which is under passenger wiper but can't get to it.

once that nut is off try tapping with the nut on a few threads while pulling

we have to get that arm off to get to the wiper motor to test

in the under hood fuse box if you put your fingers on the relay called washer do you fell it click everytime you push the front washer with the truck ON ?

and this ONLY happened after you changed some fuse ?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
happened after I changed fuses including washer fuse and wiper fuse. I tried to feel washer fuse with motor on and pressing washer switch, but no clicks.

Is thete a lock washer on wiper arm?
Expert:  ggrote1 replied 5 months ago.

no its just a nut

the arm must be really stuck on the stem bad try tapping it while prying and pulling
