Customer Question
While driving at 70...

While driving at 70 mph in the rain wipers , radio, and power outlet went off , after getting off interstate they came back on but then went off after resuming, kept driving with no wipers,radio etc and after 30 minutes got off interstate again and they came back on , trip back home 8 hours later did not have the problem but did not run the wipers continuously either

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

This is a 2005 town and country with 180000 miles on it , do not have much else except prior to this the wipers I think were a little jerky at higher wiper speeds

Hello and welcome to just answer. this sounds like a problem with the FCM ( front control module ). The FCM is the central module for many of the van's electrical systems including the wipers and power outlet. I doubt it is a fuse because a blown fuse does not cause an intermittent problem that would come and go. Besides there is no single fuse that supplies power to the radio, wipers, and power outlet. Have a shop check the wiring connectors at the FCM ( which is mounted to the underhood fuse box ) If ok, and the problem hsppens again, then I recommend that you replace the FCM.

I hope that this information is helpful and please let me know if you need further assistance.
