2003 F150 Supercrew, 17,000 miles.
Yesterday, while driving in the rain with my wipers on, the wipers
suddenly stopped. Never had any previous problems of any kind with
wipers. No warning at all. Nothing has ever been done on wiper motors
I checked the fuse and it is fine.
I played with the switch on the steering column. Moved it to every
possible position. Got no response at all from wipers. I tried all the
different positions and speeds. Nothing. ALL the other features of the
lever on the steering column work normally: the turn signals and the
water spray on the windshield both work fine.
I turned on the wipers and listened for the electric motor; no motor
I raised the hood and briefly tried to inspect the motor(s) that move
the wiper arm, but it appears that the motors(s) are not easy
accessible. They are located under a cover that would have to be
What should I do next to fix these wipers? Any suggestions?
