We tried moving wiper arms with switch turned on and they are staying in same position quite solidly.
the motor has a Monaco Kit No on it 09311601 s/n 0186
Do I have to get a motor from them or Wiper Technologies by Diesel Equipment in Greensboro?
Is there any other way to check if motor defective?
Thanks

Hi George

you can open the flat part of the wiper linkage on the motor

the motor won't open, but the linkage will, connect to the motor

you can get it anywhere they sell w/w motors

Had to take RV to shop
They found a blown relay(Ford part) in wiper circuit.
Wiper motor is ok as far as they can determine

Hi good evening,

Glad that all it was , But I thought you said you checked Fuse ????

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Fuse was ok,but the module that controls wipers had a melted piece.
It is a black box with 3 smaller boxes sticking out of it mounted under dash.
One of those individual boxes had melted.
Not in stock at any local Ford dealerships,so we have to order in.
