I have a 1999 2500 turbo diesel, the problem is that the wipers will not return to their down postion when turned off, they just stop where ever they are at when you turn them off. they work in all positions. whould a new wipeer motor be the fix or is there a senser for this. I couldn't find a diagram for the wiper wiring in the chiltons manual.

thanks in advance

The motor is probably fine. It is most likely the computer chip that is attached to the motor or the switch. I don't have access to a wiring diagram so I can't get you better info and let you know exactly what wire you need to check.

Same problem here as well, as well as the wipers stopping halfway through the up and down stroke.

Mine will start off fine, but then when I turn them off they will stop anywhere there like. Would really like to do the work on my own if possible hate the hourly rates at shops. Any suggestions, anyone. Don't be afraid to talk to a chick about trucks especially this chick.

Do they stop at the same spot every time? If so that can be adjusted by the linkage.

mine will stop halfway on the up and down stroke, and then continue on in a second or two, and then when I turn them off, they either stop straight up, halfway, almost all the way down, or all the way down. Kinda irritating, but I have gotten a little used to it. Wish I could get it fixed though.

I think it could either be the switch on the steering column or the switch in the wiper motor itself. I'll see if I can find my wiring diagram.

Wiper Issue

I have the exact issue on my 1999 Ram 2500 V10 4x4. As others have mentioned, you can certainly work around it, but it annoys the crap out of me. I replaced the turn signal/wiper stalk unit, convinced that it would fix the problem. It didn't. Doesn't seem right that it would be the motor itself. I sure wish someone could share the actual fix.:)

I found this in my manual. It's the wiring diagram for the wiper.
