hello everyone,
i have looked now for one hour and not found what i need. can someone please lead me in the direction of testing the wiper system. a complete how to would be awsome.
i have a 96 and the front wipers and washer fluid do not work at all. the horn, high beams, turn signals all work. I checked the fuse and its fine.

also i would like to clean the muti function switch. is there a detailed write up on how to do this?
any help will be awsome. I have not had wipers since the end of last winter. rain x is really becomeing a pain to put on all the time. and it is really hard to see if it is just misting.

thanks to anyone who can help. the more in depth the procedures the better i will understand. walking me through like a little kid will not hurt my feelings.
sorry i reposted because i posted i the wrong area

Did you check your underhood fuse box? The one in front on the right near the radiator it too has a wiper fuse and/or a relay.

Tbird86, go to the home page (click on home at the top left of this page) and click on wiki, then maintenance, then electrical. For the electrical testing of the switch, click on forums ( next to home at the top of this page) drop down to maintenance and click on its subforum solutions to common problems. Testing info is on first page sticky in a topic by mexijames provided by shoz123. Good luck!

Try it again. Click on home (top left of this page), then wiki, then maintenance and then electrical. There are 2 good threads about cleaning the mfs.

Tbird86, i apologize. A few days ago when i posted those directional links, i was able to pull up the wiki, but tonight am getting a blank page??? Those same 2 threads are at the very bottom of the topic finder too, but likewise, unable to access those too??? You might try a search for : multi-function switch cleaning and testing. Mods (administrators), can we get some help or an explanation here???
