F350 ENGINE STALLS WHILE WIPERS RUNNING ON INTERM

1999 Ford F-350

Electrical problem
1999 Ford F350 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles

My f-350 has a 7.3 liter diesel. When I run the wipers on intermittent, it stalls the engine. The wipers will run for 3-4 minutes, then as the wiper completes a random circut, the engine stalls. I just replaced the wiper motor and fuel pump, and the problem still continues. The motor never stalls when I'm not running the wipers. Any suggestions or thoughts?

What is causing you to use the wipers. Internittentent rain, snow or ice? That may have more to do with the stalling. How often do you drain the water catcher? On the fuel filter housing. Have you ever added anti-water to the fuel? There are some sensitive electrical connections on the motor starter that tend to catch water and corrode up. Clean them all and see.
