How do you fix the windshield wipers on a Saturn 1998 SL2 if they run at one speed and will not shut off unless you turn the car off?

You need to purchase a new motor. You can purchase one at a dealer, a parts store, or even a junk yard if you get lucky. If you don't know how to fix this yourself you should take it into the shop to have it done properly, and if you still have a warranty the dealership should be able to get you into their service department. Good luck.

There are two screws under the dashboard top plate, and two nuts at the windshild wiper post. That's only if you want to do it yourself. put 'masking' tape on both sides of you present wiper positions. About 2 hours. Care on the screws that hold the dash plate should be observed. It's plastic and fragile.

I have found that if you put rainex on the windshield everytime you change your oil you will not have that problem.

Bad switch? stalk bad wiper motor? bad low speed winding

User Avatar

most likely the switch is bad, or the wire plug has a bad connection

The wind speed on Saturn is 1800 km

Usually a malfunction switch. The switch works on resistance that is read by the BCM then it turns on the wipers and selects the speed.

windshield wipers have different kinds of speeds such as the ones listed below:Low speed: Low, Intermediate,HighNormal speed: Low, Intermediate,High (recommended speeds for rain and clean up)High "" hope i helped

The multi-function switch inside the steering column has the turn signal lever and hazard lights button extending outside of the steering column it operates - turn signals - flash to pass - high beam headlights - windshield wipers ( on/off ) and intermittent speed settings for the wipers - windshield washer fluid squirter button

I have a 94 caprice that does this. Apparently it is either that speed only on the wiper motor that has a problem or the relay for the high speed may have failed and the motor may be ok. As it is a noncritical issue I haven't worried too much about it. If I find out more I will update this.

by introducing resistors in the circuit

As far as i know, no one has been able to travel to saturn yet because of its distance...it would take a long time to get there unless they were to find a way to travel at the speed of light

Where is the speed señor for a 94saturn sl2

User Avatar

Its average orbital speed is 9.69km/s.

My 1992 Saturn has heat until you change the blower speed what is the problem?

i dont really know if it affects saturn but i reckon it would affect the movements of saturn

The speed sensor on a 1999 Saturn SL1 is under the transmission. It is below the fittings for the transmission cooler lines.

User Avatar

They work by the sensor getting rain on it and if it is getting a lot on it then it will speed up the wipers and if it gets less then it will slow them down. Its on the top of your windshield right behind the mirror. ---- Yes, quite an obvious statement of fact; what the OP was hoping for was an answer to his question. ----

20,000 mph all the way to 40,000 mph.

Saturn is slower because it is farther from the sun. The farther away a planet is from the sun, the slower its orbital speed.

User Avatar

No Saturns have been offered with turbocharged engines. There are, therefore, no 'turbo speed sensors' on any Saturn vehicles.

User Avatar

Its the sensor for the panic type alarm the car comes equipped with...it also senses the windshield wiper speed if it's on a delay setting and you're driving and it starts raining heavier the wipers will automatically adjust faster.

Saturn orbits at a slower speed as it is further out. Planets closer to the sun will orbit in less time and move at a higher speed.

User Avatar

Yes you can. I did it to my 91 s10 however you wont have control over your wiper speed since its only a two position switch on/off. I have a 3 position switch on/off/on one for slow and one for high however I have not tried this out yet.
