ISUZU Rodeo: I have a 1999 Isuzu rodeo LS, recently changed

This answer was rated:

I have a 1999 Isuzu rodeo LS, recently changed the wiper blades. The rear is giving me a problem, I think maybe the fuse is blown. I found the fuse block on the left side of the dash but they are all so small and not marked I can't tell which one is for the wipers. The windshield wipers work but the rear wiper shaft will not turn, HELP
Hello and Welcome to Just Answer!

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been working on cars for over 10 years.

Are you saying that the rear wiper arm is not moving when it selected or turned on?

Can you hear the wiper motor moving when it is turned on?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No, the shaft does not turn and I can not hear the motor. Fuse?????

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The shaft does not turn and I hear no motor


Have you checked power going to the rear wiper motor with it turned to the "on" position?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No I can not find the fuse.


There is only one fuse for the rear wiper motor. It is a 10 amp fuse inside the dash fuse box. It is labeled as "rear wiper and washer".

If this fuse is good, then I would recommend to check power at the wiper motor itself. It is possible that you just have a bad wiper motor.

If the fuse is good but the wiper motor is not getting power, then I would suspect a bad alarm and relay control unit as this is what sends a signal to the rear wiper motor.
