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.

check the fuse, otherwise the linkeage or the motor broke down

The most common cause that windshield wipers stop working is a blown fuse. The windshield wiper motor may need to be changed is also common.

If the windshield wipers are not working on a 1990 Chevy Lumina, the problem could be with the wiper motor, the wiper motor relay, or a fuse. The least expensive fix to this problem will be replacing the fuse if it is blown.

Have you checked the fuses for the wipers? It may be that simple.

The parking mechanism isn't working and the magnet probably needs replaced. Take it to a garage as it has to be soldered in.

Turn the wipers off, pull the wiper arm off, and replace it in the correct down position.

First you have to diagnose what the problem is before you can fix it.

check the fuse 1st and then check the wiper motor for to much or too little current if all good then check the steering wheel connection and also the the wiper mechanism itself it might have broke a connection

I took a piece of electric wire and hook it to the motor of the windshield wiper and place it on any metal part of the car and it start working again someone told me that windshield wipers sometimes lt has to do with electrical ground . but any way it worked. loldianedj

There are several types. Go to the parts store and most will show you how to change them

User Avatar

It depends on where they broke and if they were subjected to undue stress from ice etc.

User Avatar

Yes they do. They're working just fine.

NO, IF YOUR CAR STARTS, IT'S NOT THE MOTOR. MAYBE TRY THE FUSE.

Buy a new car. I have had the crank arm replaced(which is suppose to solve the problem) and I'm back at square one with the wipers not working at all now. AND THE DEALERSHIP DID THE REPAIRS!!! I'll get back to everyone if the dealership doesn't make this right.

If the windshield wipers won't turn off on a 2000 Chevy Blazer, check the wiper relay switch. This is usually located in the engine compartment fuse box on top of the battery.

User Avatar

they could be old and cracked.if their new they may not be slick enough,buy a can of rainx it should fix it. I remember getting a "factory recall notice" about the wipers (which I did not take advantage of) and have the same problem occasionally. I am planning on replacing the wiper motor.

if it is a new style s10 they had a common problem of the wiper control module going bad and intermittenly quiting. the module is located underneath the wiper motor cover.
