There is a problem with the contacts in the switch, you will need to replace the switch to correct this issue.

Russell, are the wipers and signal on the same lever(switch), if they are the multi switch is probably bad and needs replaced. check links below to forums with the same issues you are having.

I have a 1994 pontiac bonneville se, there is a metal like housing unit that is a part of the steering column that causes the turn signal to click when you pull the lever. The lever plugs in the the wiper...


This sounds like that actual turn signal switch assembly. To replace it you must remove the steering wheel and disassemble the column a little. This takes some special tools and skill.

VW Golf 2001 Rear Window Wiper stays on.


Back window wiper switches/levers are tricky, especially on German-brand automobiles.
Just make sure that the lever/switch is on 'O' or OFF. I overlooked this once on an Opel Astra, and mistook it for the signal lever. Move the switch to all positions to ensure that there is no damage to the physical contacts or electronic controllers of the wiper.
If the wiper cycles even in off position, the controller or motor will need to be replaced.

Turn signals don't work unless i slam tilt wheel all the way up.


Dear Tilt Wheel Slammer,
You will be happy to know that this is a very well known tsb(technical service bulletin) for this vehicle...The part that you need to inspect and pay attention to is the multifunction switch on the steering wheel.This is the lever on the left that controls turn signal flash to pass and wiper washer control.Remove the upper and lower wheel cover, inspect the pigtail(electrical ) connectors going into the mf switch and make sure all are tigh and no play, after that has been affirmed then you can isolate the switch itself and condemn it to replace it, any more questions? I'M HERE TO HELP!!!
