    Rear wiper not working.

    Hi all. I have a 2001 Chrysler Voyager. The rear wiper and squirter suddenly stopped working. I have looked in the fuse box and cannot find a fuse for it. Am I missing it or is there not a fuse for the rear wiper specifically? I thought maybe the motor went on the wiper but that does not explain why the squirter stopped working at the same time.
    Thanks.

    Can you hear the pump motor run...could it just be out of fluid? I *think* the fill for the reservoir is under the rear hatch on the left side. On newer units that was changed to allow fluid to be drawn for the main tank under the hood.

    That's correct -- by 2003, there is not a separate reservoir; it's drawn from the main tank under the hood.

    wiper

    Try going under the hood in the fuse and relay center above the battery and find the fuse labeled "IOD" (usually near the top of the box) and pull for 2 minutes then reinsert and see if that helps , this will reset the bcm which controls all this stuff , you will lose all your radio settings when you do this ....Let us know how you make out

    rear wiper

    It has been 1 reservoir since at least the 96 era , my 96 has a single reservoir for both .

    05SXT, where was your second reservoir? I suppose my '03 could have two, but I've never seen a second one.

    I never used the rear washer/wiper - didn't want to scratch the window...dumb huh? If I recall correctly....the filler port is on the left side just beside the large rubber gasket for the hatch/door. The actual tank is inside under the left rear trim panel.

    Perhaps I'm having a senior moment...

    I rarely use the washer because it's pretty useless. I use the wiper all the time in times of rain. I don't think our van has that fill port in the back, so we must have just one bottle.

    Rear wiper

    I have an 01 and had the same problem with my wiper/washer. I checked the fuses/relays and even switched relays around thinking this would help me figure out if it was related to a defective relay. The previous post gave the correction location for the relay. I believe that the description on the back side of the fuse cover mentions that it is for accessories. Unfortunately I was not aware at the time that if you removed the relay for 2min it would reset the BCM, so I did not try this. I suggest you give it a try. Bottom line is that I had to have the dealer reflash (download software) for my BCM. They charged me $40CDN for this and it solved the problem.
