I had that problem and it was the wiper motor. I got one from the wreckers complete with the (transmission) or assembly and it works great. You can buy just the motor but it is more difficult to mount, I suggest changing the complete assembly.

what size wiper blades for 2003 chev cavalier

2005 was the last year of the Cavalier...No 2006. The 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier takes 22" drivers and 17" passenger side wiper blades. See sources and related links below for more information. Since there are over 22 different wiper arm attachments, do not buy wipers just by length only. Be sure to lookup exact wiper blade part numbers by vehicle make, model and year for the brand wiper you decide to purchase. This ensures correct length AND correct attachment.

A bad pulse board or window wiper motor can cause your wipers to stay in the "up" position.

i was driving in the rain last night my headlights and wipers quit working and i stop the car for 15 minutes and they starting working again and they are still working what could have cause this my car is 2002 cavalier

The windshield wipers are not automatic... the lever that controls the wipers have three positions and you will have to pull the lever down to the off position. The position below off is for mist. If you pull the lever to that position and let it go, the lever will go back to the off position.

only one of my window wipers are working what should i do?

Could be for many different reasons. Maybe the sensor for the normal position is defective. The wipers might need a position adjustment, usually can be done by a flat head screw driver.

first remove wiper arms from vehicle next with ignition on, turn wipers on then off. the wiper motor will stop at the down position. replace wiper arms onto shaft ,in the correct down position where you want them. now with ignition on, try wipers again,to check if in the stop position you want them.

It sounds like the wiper motor is malfunctioning. If your camaro has intermitten wipers there is a control module built in the motor that controls the off position.

The car wipers should not stay up but return to their original position. The wipers will stay up if the wiper motor, the wiper controller and the wiper linkage are faulty.

either your motor burnt out or you have a faulty switch that turns them on. Or check the fuse

: There is a pawl located in the wiper motor that tells the motor when to shut off and leave the wipers in the parked position. : if your wiper blades park in the vertical position, this pawl has broken off. : the motor more than likely needs replacing.
