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.

your motor needs to be replaced,or it could just be the module on the motor.

The wiper switch on the ParkAvenue could be bad. Or, the intermittent relay for the wipers could be stuck, causing the wipers to run.

Several things could be making the Lumina growl. Check the belts and pulleys on the front of the engine. Check the engine mounts as well. Either of these areas can cause the problem of the growling noise.

If the headlights are not coming on in a 1997 Lumina, it could be a problem with the headlight switch. It could also be a fuse or the headlight relay.

i have a 2001 Chevy lumina and i am wondering if the ECM is going out, sometimes it will die when i am driving but starts right back up, sometimes it will die and not start up after several hours of sitting, then it starts up. Could this be the ECM?

The linkage for the wipers could have slipped. If the linkage is not aligned right, then the wipers will not stop at the right spot.

Wiper motor cogs can wear down and fail to leave the wipers in the lowest position. If the wipers had encountered some resistance they can also slip. It could just be a simple fix.

One reason why the wipers won't work on a 2005 Toyota Tacoma could be the fuse needs replacing. The problem could also be the wiper motor.

Well, both the wipers and the blower could have a burned out fuse. Of course, they both could have a burned out motor. I would run a hot wire from the battery to the wipers and the blower motor. If they worked, I'd be looking for a fuse or bad switch.

Not overly familiar with the Lumina, but you might have accidentaly disconected them at the bus, or the CD player could be drawing to much power(unlikely)

If your windshield wipers are not working, you should check your owners manual. It could be a fuse or another easy fix.

First what motor is in the van? Than tell me what it does before it stalls or you put it in gear. There many different possiables that it could be.

Could be a blown fuse or the motor has stop working.

Dryness will cause the wipers to vibrate or jitter against the glass. If there is not enough moisture on the windshield (for example, a light sprinkle of rain) the wipers may move with a jerky motion. Also, the wipers could be very old, and the wiping rubber/vinyl could have lost some of its softness and flexibility. If you mean vibration when they are not active, the wind against the windshield could cause them to flutter if they are not properly seated. A clean windshield and new wiper blades will usually cure the vibration.

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?

User Avatar

common cause is the wiper motor. Could hotwire it to see if it works or not. If not that then could be the multifunction switch.

If the windshield wipers are not working in a 1998 Ford F150, the cause could be a blown fuse. There could also be a problem with the vacuum hoses connected to the wiper motor or the wiper motor itself.
