I have a 99 P73, and I don't see the windshield washer motor listed on the fuse chart. Anyone know offhand which fuse it would be? Thanks.

Everything else works. Fuse #2 is good. Also have an '01 Explorer that has a dedicated fuse for the windshield washer (#12 7.5 amp), but I can't find a reference to the windshield washer fuse in my manual.

That's because there isn't one.
The wiper/washer is controlled by the WCM (Wiper Control Module) located in the dash.
There are 2 fusible links underhood that supply the wiper motor.

Seriously Ron, you're just making stuff up now aren't you?



Did I hear a niner in there somewhere?

I know he isn't full of it. Ron usually knows what's going on. Sometimes we hate to admit it though.

It just seems so weird to have a separate control module for something relatively simple like wipers.

It would be nice if they'd combine all of the computers, or have the ECM then another computer that operates the other systems. I suppose that would reduce compatability between models though.

It makes more sense to put 4 or 5 or 6 relays on a PCB inside a small metal box with one harness going to it than it does to put assorted standard relays all throughout the dash, like you would if there were no WCM or LCM.
