windshield wipers/washer quit working. does anyone know if there is an on-line fuse anywhere other than the 8.25 circuit breaker that in in the fuse box on a 1995 F53 Ford chassis. i have had the circuit breaker checked and it appears alright. thanks for any help

1.Check to see if control switch lever is broken or damaged.Examine/trace grounding wire at switch.
2.Check the steering column wiring.[Get color of wire from the wiper motor wire.]

3.See if chassis mfgr. has a wiring schematic. Unlikely to have a 2nd fuse. Might have 2 or more pig-tail connections, however. Check these.

Had a similar problem in an older car. There was an internal switch in the wiper-motor that turned the motor OFF after each cycle. Keeping the control switch ON re-started the wiper motor each cycle. This feature was used to store the wipers after turing the control switch OFF - last cycle store. If you can, take power directly from the battery to the wiper motor and see if the wipers will operate; you could also have a bad wiper motor.

Since both the washer AND wiper quit, I would suspect a problem with either the switch or the wiring coming out of the steering column as dveasy says, especially since you say the breaker appears to be OK.

It might help, if you could put your RV info in your sig.
a while back, there were problems with some of the WH chassis windshield wipers being faulty--turned out to be the connector plug , near the motor, not seating and sealing properly. Do a search on the Workhorse chassis forum for windshield wiper problems.

well i thought i had done a good deal of research on line with different sites and forums about this problem and i appreciate everyones input.
went to a highly recommended rv service/repair and found out the winshield wiper module had shorted out- $380. what good does the circuit breaker (8.25 in fuse box ) do as well as other online breakers? i researched a lot and never knew of a windshield wiper control module! i guess you just pay and learn something new every dat. thanks for everyones reply!
