Sounds like a bad ignition switch.
I changed the ignition switch and there was no change
Check the neutral safety / transmission range sensor next.
I know, it doesn't seem it could cause electrical gremlins, but...
A bad pulse board or window wiper motor can cause your wipers to stay in the "up" position.
It's call a program in the vehicles computer.
It is possible that the wiper pulse board is defective.
A bad fuse may be the cause of windshield wipers not working on a 1998 Lumina. The switch that activates the wiper motor is another possible cause for the wipers not working.
Wiper parking switch faulty, most often part of wiper motor
Having a short in the turn signal wiring can cause gauges to fluctuate. If the battery gauge is fluctuating corrosion on the cables can be a possible cause.
The "park" switch inside the wiper motor assembly has failed.
A bad relay switch will cause the windshield wipers to not turn off. Replace the relay switch and the windshield wipers should turn off.
the wires maybe fired because it's a 1997 it could be used alot.
You need to find the cause of the short.
There are several things that can cause your windshield wipers not to work. The most common cause is a malfunctioning windshield wiper motor.
One of the gauges is outside the safe range. Check oil pressure, coolant temp, and battery voltage.
hi if u connect the battery the wrong way the gauges will bouncing this is because the gauges has whats called a ballast resistor an diodes this prevent the voltage current to flow only in one direction so it wil be preventing burning of the gauges
it is broken
if it is effecting all the gauges, check for a loose, freyed or broken ground wire.
A bad ground wire will cause your instrument panel gauges to bounce up and down. The ground wire can be loose or it can be corroded.
It defiantly can be relevant. Moisture may have damaged the gauges or the wiring. Have the leak fixed before repairing the gauges. Have you checked the fuses and all connections.
cause when you shut off the van the power to the gauges is cut off completely, so the gauges will stay wherever they were at until the next time you start the vehicle.
It is telling you that one of the gauges is not within normal range. It could be you are not charging or overheating or have little or no oil pressure.
Problem may be in the wiper motor, some GM cars have a wiper control module that goes bad, there was a recall on them. I don't recall if the Caviliar was one of those or not.
cause there is a circuit failure of the wiper motor. or switch.
Check the fuse.
Check your owners manual. It tells you what each of your fuses goes to depending on the vehicle.
It could, you need to have the codes checked to know possible causes.
