Thanks again for the added info. Since I'm not familiar (or don't have the tools) with some of the check procedures you suggested, I'll likely just let my grandson look them over an help me outl
As I've searched thru various automotive problem sites I find that the Grand Caravan seems to have had many wiper problems over the years. Along with transmission, and various other major/minor problems, but the wiper system is my main concern at the moment. Also, I don't think I mentioned earlier that shortly after purchasing the car @ appx 52,000 miles (3+ years ago) that I had a similar problem with the wipers and that time I did have the BCM changed out (with the dealer sharing the cost).
However at the present time I have no "slow" running wipers. That only occured for about one sweep of the wipers just prior to them stopping for good a couple days ago. Prior to that, and since installing a new wiper motor about 3 - 4 months ago, they've worked just great, and I felt real good about my automotive expertise, now I'm beginning to question those skills.
This all said, I'm now I'm stuck with just the high speed wiper switch position working and, even then, it "parks" in whatever the position - on the windshield - that the wiper switch happens to hit the "off" position. Needless to say, at the high speed it usually takes several attempts and some delicate "knob twisting" to get the wipers to stop at the bottom, ie, (the normal park position) on the windshield.
Just an afterthought: Wouldn't a bad BCM cause other items (dash lites, air bags, radio etc.) To malfunction if it were faulty, or could it just affect one component out of many?
Hope I'm not monopolizing too much of your time. I really appreciate your patience with me; if you should ask me, I'll just chock it up to age (76+/-)! Thanx again.
