Question about 2001 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

Wipers don't touch windshield

I drive a 2001 Chevy Venture Van, that has the worst wiper system I have ever had, and I've been driving for 30 years. As soon as the temp starts to get a little colder outside (maybe -4C, I live in Winnipeg), my wipers only touch a couple points on the windshield. I have tried many different brands of wiper blades, and they are all the same. I bugged my dealer for a long time while the van was under warranty, and was told that it would NOT be covered, and would probably be expensive if paying for it myself. We can get some pretty weird weather here in Winnipeg, and I need my wipers!! All I could think of is there maybe isn't enough pressure on the blades??? Oh, and by the way, the rear wiper blade is absolutely NO BETTER!! They all ****!! Anybody else dealt with this and come up with a solution?? I'd sure love to hear about it if you have. Thanks to all who read this, and I hope you all have a great day.

The wiper arm springs are weak,just grab a used set of arms as most ventures wipe great.People who stick their wipers straight up,usually when freezing rain is coming ,ruin their wiper arm springs and have less wiping pressure too, so have to replace their arms at some point. PEOPLE STOP LEAVING YOUR ARMS IN THE UP IN THE AIR,OFF THE GLASS POSITION.

SOURCE: rear windshield wiper blade doesn't hit rear

the pivot pin must be rusted to the point it does not want to move, try lubing it with wd40 or equivalent lube,at the bottom of the wiper arm just before the bolt that holds it to the car is the pivot point.that's where it has to be lubed.

Your windshield arm is in need of repositioning. Take off the cap on the windshield arm and loosen the nut under the cap. Reposition the arm so that it faces 180 degrees flat to the passenger side of the car. Tighten the nut. This should solve the problem you've described.

I am trying to replace the front wiper motor for my 2001 chevy venture. The wipers are not parking fully down, and the intermittent setting parks the wipers about half way up until it is ready to wipe...


Check that you have connected the wiper motor correctly - ensure that you havent inadvertently got the polarity wrong!.
Leave the wiper arms off until you get the motor to run and park using the normal wiper on/off switch.
The motor 'park' control switching is normally an integral part of the motor drive gear and is not adjustable.
During your testing, affix a temporary indicator pointer to the end of a wiper arm drive shaft (use masking tape or similar) to prevent damage to motor or levers.

98 Chevy Venture front windshield wipers


I found problem to be that corrosion sets in between the CAMS plates that circle in an opposing fashion and does not let the wiper arms park correctly. Be very careful with this mechanism if you have the cowling off TURN the KEY and WIPERS OFF and watch your fingers so you don't get them caught.
WARNING if you leave the power on and try to move the arms This cam mechanism springs to life and will try to self park the wipers on their own so Turn the Power and Wipers Off.
SOLUTION: 1. With the ENGINE COLD, Spray a lubricant that FREE'S CORRODED PARTS like WD-40 between the gap of the 2 CAM Plates and on Top of the plates, or use some other automotive parts lubricant that free's corroded parts(let it soak for 5 minutes). 2. Gently Try to manually move the arms back and forth a little bit so that the spray works into the parts. 3. This may not be necessary but I had to do this the first time. There is a notch in the top cam that has a STUD that locks the 2 CAMs together. You can push on this STUD to unlock the cams by manually moving the wipers(use a screw driver to push on the STUD and have a friend gently move the wipers manually. Spray the area LIBERALLY with with the Lubricant Spray and see if you can move the CAMS back and forth and work the lubricant in.
Then with the wiper cover out of the way and all tools clear Try to cycle the wipers HIGH and LOW, ON and OFF a few times it may stick the first couple times with the wipers in the up position but I am confident that the lubricant will work its way in and free these CAMS the way they are supposed to. Your wipers should self park after cycling them after 5-10times. This should solve most of the problems with these wipers and should be relubricated as needed. Clean up any extra lubricant Put the wiper cover back on.
