Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX won't be able to get at it until tonight. Do you believe that a reset will stop the wipers from turning on? That seems like a logical solution, but it's only after I went through the other steps that I got there.
The wipers don't initiate when I put the key in and turn backwards to ACC. They only start when I turn them forward 1 click to where the diesel heater starts. Could this mean something else?
Other than the 1 problem with the wipers, there is no other electrical issues.
Did it twice. Took the negatives off and turned the key to start for 15 seconds. Rehooked negatives and the second the 1st neg hit the post the windshield wipers started for 10 seconds.
I unhooked BOTH batteries negative and positive. Then turned key to start for 15 seconds. Hooked up positives and then negatives. The second the 1st neg hit the post, the wipers started again.
No reset was accomplished. The stereo station were still set on stations.
A rest probably will not fix this; it is probably the park circuit in the wiper motor itself.
There is one more rest to try, but I doubt it will fix this particular problem. Unhook both batteries, and touch the pos. and neg. together on either battery for 10 seconds. It is worth a shot. Otherwise you will need to look at the ground circuit for the wiper motor, and maybe replace the motor.
