Question Windshield Wipers acting funky.

My 2007 Ram 1500 is having wiper issues. First started only when in intermittent. The wipers would make 3 to 4 passes before stopping, but now they won't stop at all. I tried cycling the switch, and then to the off position, and they stopped in the middle of the windshield. Seems to be no control of the wipers at all. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You should call a vehicle with your VIN number and ask them if your truck falls unter the J11 recall regarding wiper motor problems.

Checked with the dealer. They said the recall does not apply to my Ram.

my 08 1500 is having this same exact problem. Are there any members who are having this problem or had this problem and got it fixed?

Not having a lot of luck with this issue. I guess we have the only Rams with this problem, or there isn't anyone on this forum that knows what the problem may be. When I get a chance to dig into this issue (winter weather preventing me from ripping the truck apart), I will post the solution myself.

i went to the dealer yesterday and they said my truck did not fall under the recall. the service writer didnt know the symptoms of the module when it was going bad so i had no help from him. im still trying to figure this out and i might have to just bite the bullet and let them figure it out.

ok, i talked to a guy at work on friday (chrysler master tech) and he said he used to get this problem a lot. he said he almost always had to replace the FCM or TIPM (which ever one it is) but that is the big fuse box under the hood. They run about $250 plus programing the module to the truck.

I have a 2008 dodge ram and I also had the same problem but it seem to have went away but now whenever I turn the wipers on anything past delay it shoots washer fluid and won't stop until I turn it to delay again. I am wondering if I also need to replace my TIPM? Would the TIPM cause this also?
