Trying to TS why my lift gate wiper and fluid pump aren't working. Tested Fuse 1 OK. Where should I check next?

Fuse 15 is for the lift gate release its a 10 amp fuse in the inside fuse box.

Found that Fuse 17? In my Interior Fuse Panel also controls rear wiper. That too tested ok.

So you have a multi meter to do some testing?

Yes. Tested Ohms at 20k and came up 0.00. Got whistle on continuity. ? Is continuity, right?

Think I'm going to have to pull the trim off and test for voltage at the connector. Would I check for VAC or VDC or does it matter?

I have 15 VDC at the connector. I'm trying to remove the motor asm, but can't figure out how to remove the pivot arm.

You have 15 volts DC at the connector?That's too high what is the voltage at the battery at idle?

Set my multeter to 600 VDC, touched my leads to pos and neg on battery and got a reading of 19.

That's way too much you have a bad multi meter or bad alternator. It should read 13-14 volts DC at idle at the battery.

Try setting the volt meter to 20 volts DC and see wat it reads?If it reads the same try a different meter.
