Wiper motor fuse location 2000 DS Freightlier

I'm trying to help a friend repair his wipers which stopped working during a heavy rain storm. The first item is to confirm the fuse is good. But we can't find it's location

We've searched the fuse panel forward of the steering wheel, the 2 panels above the generator and the 12V panel above the bed. I'm out of suggestions???

He's got a 2000 Dutch Star on a Freightliner chasis.

Help!!!!

So far no good ������

So if anyone has a +/-2000 DS on a Freightliner chassis and can help, we really need to find this.

Thanks

Wiper Motor Fuse 2000 DS

The unit is out in cold storage right now (dropped to -6 degrees F last night) but I took photos during a New England trip in October for my reference.

It is in the left fuse box under the plexiglass cover (above & right of generator) under the front hood.
http://www.irv2.com/forums/attachmen...1&d=1420061903

It is mis-labelled IGN 1 but a previous owner wrote WIPER beside it on the decal hidden on the underside of the black plastic cover.

Welcome I90TOM to the forum and irv2.
Thanks for your first post in resolving Dan's dilemma and posting the pictures.
When the COM_NET link is up and working you can find info for you coach that maybe of interest to you.
In my signature below are links to many others for you coach.
Enjoy the forums and safe travels when its not so cold.

On my 1999 Dutch Star, i have three fuse panels--

1. On the back wall above the bed
2. Under the dash behind a fold down door.
3. Under the "hood" on the firewall.

I made a list of all of these a few years ago. and the wipers are not on any of them.

Therefore, I presume that it is an in-line fuse or perhaps there is a hidden fuser block under the dash.

I don't do "under the dash" well, but that is the best advise I can give.

Above the generator and behind an Acrylic Cover should be two Plastic Covered Fuse Panels. As I90Toms pictures show the Fuse is mislabled as IGN 1. Since this is easy to access, you might try pulling this fuse to confirm it protects the Wipers and maybe some other stuff.

The final saga of our friends 2000 DS was he and his brother had found another 12v power source and rewired the wiper circuit. Having done this before we got I90Tom's reply and pictures. They got the wipers to work but the Windshield washer did not work.

Hopefully, when he gets home he will correct the wiring.

Thanks again for all the replies!!!
