check to make sure the wipers are at its right angle on the vehicle, loose the nuts and place both wipers close to the bottom of the wind screen

Yep ,sounds lke the switch.and yes on the air bag,no big deal.pull the air bag fuse (or better still the battery) wait 15 min then pull the bag . Just unbolts like a horn button.Pull it out and unhook the yellow lead to the clock spring. GM uses a retention clip on the airbag connector,just slide the little clip out then the connector is normal.Place the bag soft side down while it's out.Have to be sure not to turn the wheel once you start the project.
There is a clock like spring that is for the air bag. If it turns too far the spring will break and the bag will not work.As you remove the yellow clock spring it will lock itself,don't push on the lock button,it will spin around inside and break.
A few special tools involved for a clip on the steering shaft and pulling the wheel ,bet the parts store will rent 'em tho

There was a recall a while back ago for this problem. Check with your local dealer and see if the recall is still active. The problem is the circuit board on the wiper motor assemble where the wire harness connects. The solder the plastic clip on the board breaks and will cause this problem and at worst the wipers don't work at all. If you good with soldering, it's a simple fix by just re-soldering the wire harness clip back on and if you like you can buy the replacement circuit board at Auto Zone. The will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done, a light tap will once and a while fix the problem but you may loose the whole function of the wipers. Good luck.
