Lets see how much you folks really know about these Rangers. I'm having the same problem as this fellow was having, the exception being that every fuse and relay are working / good.
The truck is a '99 and has no wipers, no dome light, no washers, and no speedometer.

So far all the fuses that I can find have been checked, the VSS was changed (which fixed the ABS light) and all relays have been changed out with KTBG relays. There is power to the multi switch connection for the wipers.
I have to be honest here, I've spend a couple of hard days searching the net for answers, and testing this truck. I'm not a complete idiot when it comes to automotive electrical systems, actually I have a good back ground, but this has me disturbed. About the only thing I haven't done was disconnect the harness where it goes through the fire wall and inspect it for corrosion,etc..
The wiring in this truck is clean and unmolested with the exception of some left over wires from an after market stereo. Every other electrical component is working.

I just have to ask, why are the wipers tied into the dome light and the speedometer circuits? I mean who would do such a thing?

Any ideas of what circuit has failed?

I'm just about ready to buy a pack of Johnsonville Brats and light this truck up!

Thanks for any ideas.

I've the same problem I changed wiper motor wiper switch relays fuses and the GEM did not help Went to ford to have them flash the GEM they said the computers would not talk that I must have a short or bad ground, The ground for the GEM is suppose to be under the relay/fuse box under the hood they say that it corrodes and may cause the problem

Sounds like the GEM to me. Either it's a loose ground as mentioned or it is just toast. Did you by chance find water on the floor after rain?
