hello, have you tried adding another ground to motor?-

Customer reply replied 16 days ago
no I used test light and have power to motor but motor will not run. washer for rear wiper works
Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 16 days ago

try adding a ground wire to motor-- a test light wont work as a ground-- you can use a regular wire -- just touch one end to one of the mounting bolts and other end to the wiper motor housing

wiper is still not working
Customer reply replied 16 days ago
I did add ground wire
Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 16 days ago

this is a simple system -- we need power , ground and signal from the switch , if we are sure we have power and ground and you have replaced motor then that only leaves the switch

Customer reply replied 16 days ago
everything works on the switch front wiper,washer,wiper delay and washer for rear wiper.you have to take steering wheel off to change switch
Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 16 days ago

that is correct I would double check ground first at the motor --

there are three wires in the connector for rear wiper black,orange with yellow tracer and brown with green tracer . would the black wire be the ground wire ?
Customer reply replied 16 days ago
like I said the rear washer is working so that would tell me that the ground was good
Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 16 days ago

different ground

Customer reply replied 16 days ago
I guess that I will try and replace the switch in the steering column
Customer reply replied 16 days ago
I just can not understand if you have power to motor and the washer works then the wiper should work ??
Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 16 days ago

Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 16 days ago

service manual says fuse 14

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 16 days ago
fuse is good could it just be a bad motor ? I just bought it
Chrysler Mechanic: garrtim, service manager replied 16 days ago

that is always a possibility especially if we are sure we have power and ground ive seen brand new "bad" parts over the last 30 years

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
