2005 Mustang GT - Problem with Radio and Windshield Wipers

I have a 2005 Mustang GT.. I was driving down the road one day and the radio and windshield wipers stopped working at the same time. I am a mechanic, and I know A LOT about cars.. so please do not tell me I blew a fuse.. Its NOT a fuse. Ive called several Ford dealerships who have NO answers for me. I am stumped... Does anyone have any ideas??

are they shared anywhere on the wiring system? it has to be connected if they both shut down at the same time

Re: 2005 Mustang GT - Problem with Radio and Windshield Wipers

When I bought my 02 the windshield wipers would only work from time to time. Most of the time they didn't. About the time I was fed up and going to take to a shop, I had dropped my car off at an audio place b/c the stereo i was installing would turn on at all (the previous owner had an after market wires ran thought the car). long story short. When I got the car back the installer had to of course re run all the wires for the stereo i was putting in. He mentioned my fuse box had to be rewired b/c of corrosion or some ****. Since then my windshield wipers and stereo have never had a problem.

You ever consider taking it back to the dealer?

Re: 2005 Mustang GT - Problem with Radio and Windshield Wipers

When I was in a mustang club, one of the guys had a 05 GT. While we were on a drive all his lights went out. He started checking the fuses and none of them were blown. Then he made sure they were seated all the way in, and discovered that all the fuses could be push in a little more. After doing this everything was working fine on the car.

One day I was at the dealer and told them about, picked one of the cars and showed them the fuses could be push in more.

Not saying this is your problem, best of luck.

Talking Re: 2005 Mustang GT - Problem with Radio and Windshield Wipers

FINALLY!! A buddy of mine took my car to his shop because I needed an inspection done.. and he happened to stumble upon the problem. There was a little cord that he found unplugged.. I must have unplugged it while I was shifting and didnt even know it. Plugged it back in and everything is back to normal.

I still dont understand why the Ford Dealerships drew a blank when I asked the question..

I had exactly this problem, and this 9-year-old thread fixed it for me! There is one of those wiring harness connectors with a lever that pulls the male into the female and locks them together, mounted just above and to the left of the clutch pedal, a clumsy move can catch and move the lever to disconnect the plug. Easy fix! Thanks very much!
