1999 F150 WIndshield wipers, dome light and side window controls not working

I have a 1999 F150 and the windshield wipers, dome lights and window controls for the passenger and drivers' side windows all stopped working at once. Additionally once I start the truck I cannot shift the truck into gear. I did figure out a way around that last problem though I have not fixed it. Any suggestions????

    i have a 2001 expediton and i have the same problem, i wonder if it has to do with water coming in thru the windshield

    I have the same exact problem 1999 F-150 4.6L NO dome light, no wipers, neither of the windows work and I only have High Beams, also 4WD switch is no longer working. I am going to take a look and see if i can just run my own wire configuration out. Sounds like a lot of problems with what ford did.

    Had the same prob. checked all the fuses in common, all good. After searching the net found where someone changed the 5 amp #15 fuse and it fixed it. I think that powers the relay coils.

I just had the same problem with my f 150 ( 1999), my wipers, washer fluid pump, dome light, door chime stopped, I went thur the manuals, Checked appropated fuses, even changed wiper motor, (nothing worked) out of much internet checking, talking to mechanics, I got frustrated, I started pulling all the fuses under the dash,, I pulled # 15 ,a 5 amp fuse, which has nothing to do with the wipers eletronics, it was a good fuse, when i put it back in, everything came back and working fine. nearest i can figure it was either loose or a dirty contact.

#15 fuse (5 amps) on my box is for : stop lamp switch,( speed control,brake shift interlock,ABS, pcm module inputs.gem module,RABS test connector)
this was just blind luck, maybe it will help you.

    The GEM provides power to a lot of the interior component relays. If fuse #15 was causing the GEM not to get power that was the problem.

Check for leaks under the dash. leaky windshield will cause water to leak on to the fuse box or the gem mod.

1999 plymouth voyager van windshield wipers


Either the wiper arms are loose or stripped on the pivots or the wiper linkage is broken. Try tightening the arm to pivot bolt. If that doesn't work, remove the plastic cowling and examine the linkage. You can buy new linkage for it.

2009 Touareg passenger side windshield wiper arm does not move but driver side does


sounds like the connecting rod between both wiper arms either broke or one of the keepers popped off under the connector for that arm..since the wiper system IS NOT designed to wisk snow off the window once accumulated, this can an does happen.. even seen motors get burned out doing this..cleaning the window first will save this issue and the equiptment. need to acess this arm<take off the vented peice below the windshield and everything should be visible there..repost findings

Windshield wipers quit working on 2003 chevrolet trailblazer. relays and fuses are okay.


There were some issues with ignition switches in those vehicles.It is easy to change and does not cost but about $30. Remove the column covers, unplug the switch, and depress the 2 white tabs holding it in place. Good Luck

1999 Buick Centery passenger side windshield wiper


Sounds like you need two new wiper motors. I beliveve the gearing inside the motors are worn out and now theres alot of play in them. Try wiggling the wipers with you hands and see if you can feel any up or down / side to side movement.

03 Taurus wiper problem


What I would suggest you do is the following:

1) Remove the driver side wiper (arm & blade).
2) Start the car and turn on the wipers.
3) When the passenger wiper is straight up and down .. turn off the car. This leaves the wiper in position.
4) Re-install the drivers side wiper and put it back on so its position is the same as the passenger - making them parallel

Start the car and test

1999 Ford F150 passenger side window regulator


Whn the window does not work try this, Turn on you dome light. Press and hold the window button. Does the dome light dim? If it does it is likely a physical resistance in the window track. If it doesnt then there is a break in the window circuit. Have you tested the switch. The switch could cause an intermitten concern. The wiring of a 1999 f150 the passenger side switch could cause a concern even using the drivers switch. Check both switches using the dome light trick. If you have a test light place the clamp on a ground and the tip to the TN/LB wire and the WH/YE on the driver side switch operating it in boh up and down positions. Each wire should go power in one postion but not the other. The passenger side wire colors are YE/RD and RD/YE. Good luck
