Wipers not working on a 99 LS400. Replaced column stalk and wiper motor. Didn't help. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I do not know. I will check it tomorrow ASAP. Thanks! I took the wiper fuse out from the box inside the car because the wipers kept running, then stop then keep running.

      Rain sensing wipers are slow to come on when it rains and may come on when it is not raining!!  Anyone else have this problem?  How did dealer solve problem?

      I have a 98 GS300 that I recently acquired with an electrical problem. It had about 6 to 8 blown fuses in the panel under the dash. Also, the previous owner hooked jumper cables up backwards and melted a big fuse under the hood (I think it was a 120A fuse for the alternator) it has a new fuse pushed down on top of the old one. I'm guessing I will probably have to replace the whole fuse panel under the hood. Anyhow, when I replaced the blown fuses under the hood (for wipers, ignition, radio, and I can't remember which others), the car started and ran, but the wipers won't turn off unless I disconnect the switch. The wipers are on the biggest fuse, and I'm thinking that maybe there is a short between the wiper circuit and the others with blown fuses, and since the the wipers have a much higher amp draw it is causing the smaller fuses to blow and giving power to the wiper circuit where it shouldn't be. I looked under the dash and hood and I can't see anywhere where the wiring harness is damaged. The plastic loom is intact throughout. I think my next step will be to pull the loom off and see if the wires have gotten hot and melted the insulation off. Has anyone seen this problem before? This is my first Lexus. Thanks in advance!

      I started my car today and the wipers made one pass then stopped completely in the down position.  I thought they may be frozen since it was about 21 degrees (F) and snowing today.They were not frozen and I can manually move them slightly with my hand. I cleared all the snow and ice, so they are free to move.  The washer does not work also.  I replaced the 20 amp fuse with a new one, no change. I can not hear the wiper motor going, so I don't believe the linkage has come loose.
      I do not know where the wiper relay is located, or if there is one. Is there a way to test the motor with a meter? Does anyone have any suggestions how I can troubleshoot the system?
