Customer Question
My 2013 ram 2500 5.7...
My 2013 ram 2500 5.7. Seems to have electrical issues. The wipers come on and stay on even when the key is removed and the truck is completely off. It started doing this in the middle of the night, I woke up to this. I have since removed the fuse to get it to stop. When the wipers are running I cannot speed them up or slow them down.

This most likely means the body control module or fuse box under the hood has failed. The wiper switch sends signal to the body control module which sends signal to the fuse box then the fuse box activates relays which powers the wiper motor. I'd expect around a $600 job at dealership which is where repair should be done because new module will need to be programmed to vin by dealer scantool. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

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.
