1996 Chrysler Town and Country 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
Hi! I picked up a 96 T & C with 178K that has been sitting dormant for a while. It wouldn't start and I had to put a fuel pump in it and it also had a leak at the transmission pan, so changed the transmission filter, oil & gasket. So far, everything has worked out great, but I am having a problem with the wipers. They didn't work, so I checked the green 30 amp fuse and tried exchanging relays in the power distribution center. They do work when you use the washer, so the wiper motor is okay. Also for a while, when I pushed the washer, the wipers would run and would change speed according to how I had the wiper switch set, faster or slower, but they would continue to run even when I shut the wiper switch off and also when I shut the key off. I had to keep hitting the washer switch to finally stop the wipers. I tried exchanging the relays again and now the wipers only move when I use the washer, but do not continue to run. I disconnected the plug on the firewall and found constant 12 volts in one wire and a much lower voltage in another, but I am still clueless. The fact that they continued to run after shutting off the ignition switch kind of makes me suspect it is a relay problem, but I'm not sure how to proceed. Any ideas?
