There are a number of possibilities. Wiper motors often fail and you'll get nothing. Check to see if power is getting to the motor when you turn on the switch. Understand that there are two wires that go to the wiper that can have power. One is powered any time the keyswitch is on, the other only gets power when the wiper switch is on. If both are working right, it just about has to be the motor. There may be cracked solder joints in the wiper motor/controller assembly. this was a common problem recalled by GM. If you remove the cover from the wiper motor (no need to dismount the motor from the vehicle) you will see a circuit card. Check all the solder joints for cracks, parcticularly those on the connector for the wiring. The cracked joints can easily be repaired with a soldering iron.

Why do my 1999 Jeep Cherokee windshield wipers keep falling off?

If you mean the windshield wiper blades keep falling off, it means the clips that hold them on have become too loose. Also, next time you replace them, you might want to switch to the kind that tighten with a screw instead of a clip.

Will 1994 Chevy Suburban 350 motor bolt up to 1996 Chevy Suburban?

I don't think so, given that the engine became computer controlled in 1996. I they are the same size they might bolt up just fine but I'm not sure how much work it would be to convert it to computer control. The Suburban and Silverado drive trains were almost unchanged from 1988 thru 1995 and 1996 thru 2000.

A couple things could have happened. First check the fuse for the wipers,in the fuse box. Should be on dash on driver side,near the door. Look towards the bottom. The relay might be bad,that box is under the hood. Wiper motor could be bad or the swing arm that moves the wipers could be broke. Do you here the wiper motor at all?

How do you remove paint overspray from glass?

I got flat, white spray paint overspray on the windshield of my car. Mind you, this was a simple, faint mist of overspray. You coulnd't see it, but when I used the wipers, I could tell it was there. I simply used the corner of a soft, worn t-shirt saturated in fingernail polish remover. (I don't know what that might do the paint on your car body, so take care not to slop it around.) I applied a little pressure and wiped over the entire windshield twice, then used the windshield washer fluid and the wipers to finish the job. Done! Took me about 4 minutes.
