Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

I am attaching a diagram.. its on the right side of the engine compartment. On my diagram it cut off the description for some reason but you will see a ground eyelet with a bolt ran through it right between c1046 and c1247 on the diagram.

Let me know if you need anything further and please be sure to rate my service so I get credit for it. THanks

Well Hi Wayne. Did you look over the issue? No wiper. No wiper wash pump either - but no current is getting to it. So found the G108 on that diagram. Cleaned it even though there is full continuity to the pump. Think I found G100, cleaned it, too - its behind the power steering pump reservoir. Cleaned G300. Haven't been able to find G202. Guess I'll pull the wiper motor and simply multimeter my way through it and back out the connector.

I did not. I'm in the road right now I'll be back at a computer in about an hour and will check it

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
In an hour I'll be off task till sometime tomorrow. Going to pull arms, grills and module and check back out the connection. Try you tomorrow. Thanks.

Alright. Let me know when you got time to work on it and I can walk you through properly testing it.

Hi Wayne,
OK. Got the crop out of the field, Truck back into the shop. Things done -- Cleaned the grounds, at the firewall by the wiper wires going into the intake/wiper cavity, top mid drivers side fender, two on passengers fender, and one in the cab drivers footwell. Next wiper motor out. From the connector side the diagram I found on the net had three power, all hot voltage. All ground lines ground, and the control wires to the switch ground across the seven settings. Pulled the two fuses, 33 and 106 and shorted across with an ammeter. No go. Haven't found fuse"54", or the instrument cluster ground. Brother used a battery assist and picked out working motor with the same visteon part number. Still no go. Your turn. Sorry to be taking so much time. Brian

Uh oh. Left out: "Brother used a battery assist and picked out (a) working motor with the same visteon part number (at the pull your own parts salvage yard)."

OK. Found this while waiting: Got as far as Refer to GO to A4. Wiring Diagrams Cell 149 for component testing. Did this in lieu of the Cell 149: No go. Saw a page that refers to a service bulletin on a new ground pigtail. And a page that replaced the main power wire. Update me when you can. Brian
