Question about 2001 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

2001 Pontiac Bonneville SE, wipers won't go to rest postion.

Windshield wipers work when turned on, but stop in the vertical position when shut off instead of going to the horizontial "at rest position' like they should. Is it in the wiper motor or the switch itself?

The "horizontal park" mechanism is in the actual wiper motor assy.

How to replace a 99 se Bonneville windshield wiper motor


Windshield wiper motors are generally easy to replace. You need to remove the windshield wipers and take off the small grill panel above the hood and under the windshield. You should see the motor in there. It simply unbolts and unplug the electrical connector and replace it with a new one.

Wipers dont work


If you are positive that your problem is ONLY the motor, these directions won't help.

However, if your windshield wipers do work, but when you turn them "off" they won't return to their resting place (which is at the bottom of your windshield, next to the hood) - instead they just stop straight up on your windshield, here's how to fix that using only a couple of screwdrivers.

What has caused that? You were probably your using the wipers to remove snow or snow and ice from your windshield instead of using your window scraper! Unfortunately the wiper bracket (it's the piece having a tab that has been bent) on many Oldsmobiles isn't strong enough to remove even light snow and/or ice.

Your windshield wiper motor has a mounted bracket over it that has a little metal tab (a "Park Tab") on it that the crank arm assembly has to "hit" in order to "park" the wipers in the correct position. The Park Tab is not covered up - it's part of the mounted bracket - out in the open, and you can see it.

In a many cases this "park tab" is either bent or broken, and if it's bent can be adjusted using a screwdriver back to its original position. It it has broken off, the part that holds that tab will need to be replaced. (I had a bent tab twice and two repair shops said I needed an entirely new motor, when I didn't.)

Go to this link: http://redhouseon7th.com/redhouse/howto/2009OldsmobileWiperRepair/index.html then follow its directions - they are excellent and simple. The link has pictures to show you exactly what to do, step-by-step showing pictures of what it looks like at each step. The only tools you will need are a couple of screwdrivers, and you don't need to replace the motor IF your windshield wipers are "stopping" in or near the "12 o'clock" position. And the "fix" costs are zero. (The repair shop charged me $850.00 the first time I had the problem.)

It's a problem with many Oldsmobiles - the bracket with the "park tab" should have been made stronger in the first place. After my first repair cost, I looked up directions and fixed it the next time. I live in Iowa, and I now always use my snow/ice scraper every time instead of my windshield wipers, and have had no more problems. I love my Intrigue!

Hope your problem is solved! Best wishes!

How do I reset the home position on the front windshield wipes of a 2002 Pontiac Montana. The bolt holding the transmission came loose and now the park position is out of sink when they are shut off.


remove the bolt and unhock the linkage, next turn on the wipers and then turn the wipers off, this will park the motor , you will then postion wipers in the park postion and put linkage on the motor, this will line the wipers up, good day.
