How to Repair the Wiper Motor in a Dodge Caravan

The wiper motor in your Dodge Caravan uses a wiper motor circuit board to control the function of the wipers. The circuit board, like any circuit board module, can become damaged from electrical shock or physical damage. If the circuit board becomes damaged, your wiper motor will not work. Unfortunately, you will not be able to purchase a new circuit board module from most auto parts stores. Some salvage yards may be able to find a working circuit board module for your Caravan, however.
