The Importance of Reliable Windshield Wipers?

No vehicle can ever be driven without a good pair of windshield wipers. Whether the transportation is a jet airliner, train, bus, truck, or simple car, the windshield wipers need to be available for use in case of inclement weather. No one is ever sure when the need to use them will occur. A sudden thunderstorm could bring a downpour of rain which can block a driver's view even when the wipers are turned on up to high. Even in a snow shower, these wipers really make a difference between seeing and not seeing.Airliners need the wipers while on the ground and even when taking off and making the approach for the landing. Once the airline is below the clouds, it will need vision just like any other vehicle does. A public transit bus is not permitted to be used if the windshield wipers are out of order. It's just common sense; no one can drive without being able to see what's in front of the vehicle.Good windshield wipers don't need to cost a lot of money. Low cost wipers can offer great performance. Sometimes only the rubber part needs to be changed. This is necessary when the wipers are dragging or streaking along the windshield while in use. The rubber can also deteriorate if it is heavily used. A good rule of thumb is to have the windshield wipers changed twice a year, in the spring and in the autumn. When purchasing the new wipers, the owner's manual must be consulted to get the proper fit and style. This way the wipers will always be reliable when needed the most.A new design of wipers that have been tested are the six beam-blade models. These beam blades have no external frames and can put more even pressure on the newer curved windshields, thus the performance of the wiping will be much better. These new blades will cost more but may work better on the much newer windshields.

Linkage has become disconnected or broken wiper transmission? There is a plastic grill that covers the wiper arms, open the hood and remove the windshield wipers first (just unscrew the bolts), remove the black grill. You will see the two linkage arms that attach to the motor. One might have fallen off it's linkage. You can order a new linkage arm online ($15) and attach it yourself. Make sure you put a lot of pressure when you attach the new one, it's hard.

Would a burned out fuse cause the windshield wipers to go out on a 1998 Stratus and if so how do you change the fuse?

Yes. There are two places to check. The first is the wiper relay it should located under the hood in the relay box. The relay box is located right next to the air cleaner. Remove and replace. The other is the fuse box. When you open the drivers door look at the end of the dash there is a little panel you need to remove in order to access the fuse panel. Look on the diagram printed on the door it should tell you which fuse is connected to the wipers. Remove fuse (either with a fuse puller or a set of needle nose pliers) if the little wire insde is broken replace with a new fuse of same size.
