I have a 1983 Royal Knight SS. Had the same problem. Had my wiper motor and washer pump replaced. works like a dream now. replaced my original combination turn signal wiper switch on steering column and now have good working intermittent wipers. It is great to see driving in the rain now. Jackson  in ATL

Looking for the fuse for the wiper motor 2008 chevy impala


WPR fuse 25amp under hood fuse box .
Wiper/Washer System Components
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Body control module (BCM)
• Wiper PCB relay
• Wiper high PCB relay
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield washer fluid pump
• Windshield washer fluid level switch
• WPR fuse 25 A
• WSW fuse 10 A
This is more then likely not a fuse issue !!!!!!!
Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the low speed position, ground is applied through the switch internal resistor and the wiper switch low signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). In response to this signal, the BCM energizes the WIPER PCB relay by applying battery voltage through the wiper relay control circuit to the coil side of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the WPR fuse to flow through the switch input side of the WIPER PCB relay and out to the switch input side of the WIPER HIGH PCB relay. Since the wiper high relay is de-energized and its switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed control circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.
Wiper motor low speed operation and the wiper PCB relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Control Module References.
The PCB relays mentioned above are soldered right into the circuit board inside the fuse/relay block under the hood . There are alot of reasons for the wipers not to work ! The fuse could be blown but fuse's don't just blow for no good reason , short to ground , low resistance high current flow etc.... Intermittant !

Power and Grounds
With the ignition in the ON position, accessory voltage is supplied through the 25A WPR fuse to the WIPER PCB relay, the WIPER HIGH PCB relay and the WS WASH PCB relay that are all located in the underhood fuse block. Refer to Wiper/Washer Schematics.
G200 provides ground for the windshield wiper motor and the WIPER PCB relay. G100 provides ground for the windshield washer fluid pump and the windshield washer fluid level switch.

1983 el camino, pasenger window suddenly quit working from either switch. How do I troubleshoot the problem.


the way to check the window motor is take the panal off and with two long wires from the battery un hook the motor plug and place the ground on first and with the hot wire place in on one prong and iff nothing happens put the hot wire on the other prong. that is how you bypass the switch. but i think your window motor is bad

The blinkers dont work in my 83 el camino. i replaced the switch in the column and checked all fuses and relays. everythings good. hazzards work also horn. all of witch is in the turn signal switch. need...


Did you recently put wider than stock tires on your car? The wiring harness for the rear lights runs down the outside of the drivers side frame rail, wider tires will rub on the harness and cause damage to it and subsequent light failures.

I have an 1983 chevy el camino and the high speed on the ac isnt working. where are the relays at?


I beleive that would be the resistor pack that would need replacing.

It is usually near the fan.

Hey scorpio13206,

Thanks for asking me about your wiper problem. I've got to let you know up front that this could be a multi-step process (perform a test, the results determine the next step). I'll also be asking some questions to get a better grip on where the problem may be. I'll explain what I'm asking
so you can better help me help you. Just comment me back with your findings.

I know people have jobs and lives. I don't expect an immediate response so don't worry about it. It's important that you take your time, be safe.

If you have something you can use to test voltage (test light or volt meter), get it out. You will also need A length of wire, preferably with clips on the ends (just to keep your hands free) to supply voltage for some of the tests.

Be patient. You are my eyes and ears. From the way you described the problem, you won't have a any trouble, we're going to do great. Let's get started.

Questions:
  • The pulled wire, how was it connected? (just curious)
  • When you grounded the wire from the wiper motor, did it spark? Was the ignition and/or the wiper switch on at the time?
  • Is the delay after market?
  • Were the fuses checked again after the wire was grounded? (I figured you wouldn't pull a wire if nothing was wrong, you would've checked fuses before pulling wires, so....)
  • Wiper motor: How many wires come out of it? (some motors have multiple speeds wired into them (two to four wires), others are controlled by an electric pulse (one or two), some have after market delays wired in)
  • Did the pulled wire look like it was added or was it original from manufacturer?
Tests:
  • After you have confirmed the fuses are ok again. On the wire that was pulled, test it for voltage with the ignition and wiper switch on.
  • Need to know the wiring config before I put any test power to the motor.
Get back to me when you can.
Mike
