Customer Question

Having wiper problem. Replaced motor, and it didn't fix problem. Looking for other possible solutions.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Can you do the tests in the link below to check the relays, and the BCM.

If you're confused on what to do now. You have already been charged the full question value. It's now time to compensate the tech that helped you. The only way I can continue to work here and help customers is by getting rated. If you're not pleased yet or plan not to rate me. Let me know so I can help more, close the post, or opt out. Please let me know if you're pleased with my help.

Thanks Moose.

When I turn the multi-function switch to all positions, it clicks with every turn of the switch in the fuse box under the hood. Also, the wipers are trying to move, but only twitch and they are stuck at vertical position

Washer fluid also works

Not sure on how to perform tests?

Do you own a digital volt ohm meter?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I do, but not sure on where to set the dial, or which ports to plug the leads into. Don't want to fry anything on the truck. Where exactly is the body control module(BCM)??
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 3 months ago.

Based on your skills, I do not believe I am the correct tech for you. I do not believe I can successfully walk you through DVOM and every test. I am going to opt out and let another try.
