'02 f350 wipers and washer no worky

got in truck this morning. wipers and window washer are not working. have checked fuses (30A and 15A) and still not working. next thought is the switch on the turn signal arm. what do you think? common problem?

if the fuses are good...check with known good ones before ruling that out, then the multi function switch probably needs to be replaced

when you say multifunction switch you mean the turn signal arm assembly?

these trucks were known for the pins breaking out of the multifunction switch connectors,and shorting in the connector also,just remove the lower column cover to inspect.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

this is not looking good so far... it's not the multifunction switch. i grabbed one from a friend at the dealer to try. piece of cake to get at, but it's not the issue.

1) not the fuses (30A or 15A)
2) not multi function switch

is there some sort of relay or controller? i assume the wipers and washer are on the same circuit so maybe there is a control relay shot?? what else?

did you check the wiring harness for the wiper motor? any loose connections or frayed wires?

wiper motors have been known to go out....but the washer not working is throwing me off, get your buddy at ford to photocopy the wiring schematics for the system and go over them, might give you a few more things to look at
