I have a 2000 Taurus SEL that the windshield washers and the wipers in the
high posiiton will not work. No one replied to this question I posted in
this NG a month ago. My Taurus has 77000 miles on it, everything works fine
with the exception of the wiper and washer issue.
The multi-function switch was replaced, and that did not remedy the problem.
My friend, who runs a service shop, looked at my problem, traced the wiring
for two days and came up with the following conclusion;
The washer pump works with a separate power supply
The wiper motor works in all speeds with a separate power supply
The multi-function switch works in all of it's functions
He diagnosed the problem as an issue with the GEM module, a part available
to his shop, but not able to be "burned" with 2000 Taurus information, as
this information is the property of Ford Motor. My tech says to take my car
to the local dealer for the GEM module and programming.
I recognize a lot of wisdom in this NG and would appreciate any input on
resolving this issue before I call the dealer on Monday.
Thank you in advance
