Weirdest thing ever

When I turn my windshield wipers on my truck shuts off. But it only happens when it rains which is messed up cuz that's the only time I need them. It'll do it when I'm goin 5mph or 80mph. But when I'm goin fast enough the truck will shut off for a second and then turn back on. Where in the hell would I even start to look for a problem??

Its your CPS. No ifs ands or buts about it.

Replace it with a Motorcraft unit only.

CPS is cam sensor.
I'd say either that, GEM, or wiring in the steering column.

It's the gem, windshield leaks causing water to run into it. And you only use your wipers when it's wet out :-) your going to waste money on a cps, get a gem

If your running a DP Tuner and the wire running from the chip to the switch is too close to electrical interference it can cause the same issue.

If its the cps, whys it only do it wet?
Search for his issue, 99% of the issues was the water leaking onto the gem they figured the wipers are what caused it, but realized it was water
