Not right part for truck

Listed to fit a 2002 ram pick up , but does not you have to use the 2003 relays to fit correctly for the 2002.

              My wipers in my 2000 Ford Taurus had stopped working, after a wiper motor replace and a multi-switch replace, they still didn't work. I Googled for help and was lead to check the relays. Tapping on the old ones, my wipers worked. So I bought the two that control the motor and speed and my wipers work again!

                          Hi Mike! I think it is a rebuild issue. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it, nor provide you with a 100% answer. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a mechanic where your vehicle transmission rebuild was done.
