Has the wiring been checked at the wiper module at all?

Do you have a test light or multi meter for testing electrical at all?

Yes i have checked them. the Wiper work in one speed and high speed. but interval and washer pump Will not work. And when turned off they stop where they are.
also when you push the washer to squirt they do not shut off unless you turn the truck off. i can make the pump squirt by jumping a hot wire
to it. So the is good. Wiper motor seems ok too.
O.k.,do you have a test light or multi meter for testing electrical at all?

ok home now and have checked it. there is power there. and when i put the test light on it the washer pump squirted. but still had to shut the truck off to shut them off.
I apologize for the delay.O.k,test the two black wires in terminals 3 and 5 and see if these have a ground signal.

Was the power there still in terminal 4 when you shut off the wiper/washer switch?

Do you have power in terminal 4 with the wiper module unplugged and if not do you have power when the washer switch is activated?

Let me know,thanks Pete.

Ok i checked it today. don't seem to have power there when i push
the wash. Unplugged the Wiper control module and no power there either. one ground has a signal but the other was not reading anything


According to my info both of these wires should have a ground,I would check the wiring harness going into the module and check and see if any damage is found to the wires since you have replaced both the switch and the module already and the fault is still present.

This sounds like this may be due to wiring at fault causing this issue and the wiring harness needs checked from where it runs from the switch assembly to the wiper module assembly to see if there is a fault and if one is found then it needs repaired from there.

I hope this info has helped in some way here,thanks Pete.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
