hi the only thing i can find in the hand book about front wipers is F22 and its a 30 amp wiper modual it looks like a square block with if there is a fuse for it then let me know

thanks for your reply

My front wipers have stopped working too.

Fuse module F22 seems Ok. Swapped it with another.

Have u seen stuff in the smax official trouble topic about water damage to alarm module that can cause wipers to stop working.

I am wondering if this is my problem so I have pulled the fuse for the module and am waiting for the battery backup to discharge to see if the wipers come back on.

I didnt get anywhere with the alarm module, nothing seemed to change so I reinstated the fuse [yesterday].

Now, this morning, for no apparent reason, my wipers are working again. I was just about to go to the Ford dealers too.

This points more and more to the alarm module I guess. Perhaps its dried out a little.

hi thanks for your input

i had my car diagnosed and the error code was b1131 wiper motor control module missing message

so i called ford and they told me to replace the driver side front wiper motor because this was the problem

SORRY ALL NOT FIXED !!!

i took the fuse out on the night and wipers worked no problems

woke up in the morning and they had stopped again donít know why and the car was saying alarm service required

so i am still stuck with no wipers

i have taken the alarm sounder off the car which is under the n/s front wing its just a metal box and put it on a radiator to get any water out of it

so i shall stick it back on and see what happens

but the funniest thing happened last night the alarm was going off on my car strange because i have taken the sounder off?

so the alarm is using the car horn as the alarm horn?

if any one can point me in the right dirrection that would be great
