Take it to a garage as there is check out charts that the mechanics follow.

There is a recall on the circuit board on the fron of the motor, you can take it to the dealer if this recall has not been done yet OR All you have to do is take out three torx screws pull the board off and replace it, when you buy one new, they usually come with the screws... This is Most Likely the problem taht you have.

More than likely it needs a new pulse module control board for the wipers.... get it at an autoparts store for around 35-45 or have them charge you 130 just for the part....

take it to the Chevy dealer, i believe it is a recall item. i had that happen to me twice and i read somewhere that Chevy was replacing it even tho i bought my replacement part

I had the same problem on my 96 Tahoe and had to have the wiper motor replaced. it seem thet where the connector clips into the motor, the cnnection on the motor side goes bad. It cost me about $175.00 to have the dealer fix it. about 3 months later g.m. issued a recall notice on that very problem so you might want to check that.

this happened on my 97 s 10 and it was nothing more than the relay switch sticking. it is on the the firewall at the top just try tapping on a couple of em to see if that fixes the problem. then you will know which one to fix. by the way this started happening over 50 thousand miles ago and i still havent had to replace it. just have to tap it every once in awhile or run over a speed bump.I think there is a recall on this. On the wiper control board under the hood next to the wiper motor the ground pin comes unsoldered. It is intermittent. I had the same problem, but being handy with soldering and good mechanic i fix it myself.
