Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
Just wondering what it could be and the cost of it to be fixed. We know that it is not the fuses because they have been replaces and seem to just blow each time we replace them.
Okay, we will need to pin point the short,first remove connector from wiper motor and install a fuse and see if it blows. if it does then we know its not the wiper motor.next, will fuse blow when key is turned on or do you have to turn on signals? if its when signals are working then check all bulbs, remove signal bulbs one at a time and make sure the correct bulb is in the socket and the bulb and socket are good, if all checks out then i would say you may have a bad switch,let me know what the outcome of these tests are i will help you fix problem or give you price. good day

I have a 97 Sierra and similar issues. I changed the wiper control board that is under the hood/on the firewall/ mounted on the wiper motor.

Have you checked the wire harness that goes between the hatch and the body? The constant opening and closing weakens the wires. Could also be the ground wire, I believe is inside the hatch. It could have come undone. If you have an owners manual, it should guide you to the defogger fuse. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Auto headlights do go off when turn signal is put on. The wiper problem could very well be in the blinker switch in the column, they are know to go out on these trucks. Run some tests before replacing.
