The front wipers on your 1995 Pontiac TranSport minivan are intermittent because there is a manufacturing defect in how a couple of connections were made (soldered) to a control board that is located in the motor assembly. I had the same problems with a 1996 TranSport and the fix took only minutes once the motor assembly was removed. Basically, it involves resoldering a couple of connections. Other than a few hand tools required to get the assembly out from under the hood, only a soldering iron and some solder are required.

There is a really good web site with a complete set of photos describing the fix once the box is out.

The wipers on my Transport got worse and worse until they finally quit altogether. Some have suggested replacing the control board but a healthy dose of solder will cure the problem.

Wiper blades stuck up on 97 Pontiac transport?

I have the same problem with my 1997 Pontiac Transport. I live in the snow belt and had to leave my car unattended for a spell so to turn the engine off while the wipers were working so as to leave them in a vertical position thereby preventing them from being trapped in snow and ice had I parked them in the normal off position. After that they now park up instead of down (horizontal). I bookmarked the question page. I will try to give you my solution to the problem once I discover it. I fixed my 1998 Pontiac wipers by removing the plastic cover over the motor and spraying the disks where the arm attaches with brake cleaner. Seems to park the wipers correctly their must be enough friction to cause the "park mode" to be engaged when the motor runs backwards (which is what it does to park the wipers). Adding grease make it worse, so I removed all grease with the spray from the brake cleaner, especially on the little spring the wraps around all those little plates.

On a 98 Chrysler minivan why do the wipers stop anywhere on the windshield and not at the bottom?

There is a switch inside the wiper motor that identifies the home spot for the wipers. If you have intermittent wipers there is also a controller for that. Either can give you problems but more likely the wiper motor switch. The wiper motor switch usually is not a separate part (comes with wiper motor assy.) Oh yeah, 1 other thing, be sure the wiper arms are installed correctly on wiper motor.

What would cause a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee to have the windshield wipers intermittently turn on while driving or even at idle?

It may be casued by a faulty Delayed Wiper switch. I've seen this in General Motors vehicles also. Low battery power can sometimes trigger wipers and such. How's your charging system doing? Possible bad switch.

Why do Wipers come on intermittently when turned off?

It is decently possible that it is an electrical short making it register the mist setting instead. A test of this would be to turn it to the mist setting to see if it turns off, as shorts can cause triggers to switch.
