    I have the same problem in my 2000 Silverado. The most info I can get on this problem is that the module on the motor is gone and replacement of the motor is necessary. However I don't buy that option. Any luck?

    I have the same problem on my 2004 malibu except my wipers cut out completely when we were hit with the big storm a few weeks ago. I had been having problems with them coming on at odd times and then not coming on at all when I needed them. Now they just don't work at all. Any suggestions?

    one guy on another site said he found a capacitor loose on the board on the control module. He soldered it back on and poof everything worked. Some say the multi-fucntion switch on the steering column could be it too. Who knows, lots of things it could be.

I had this problem (wipers only work on high) with my 2002 Chevy Malibu and had to replace the 6 amp diode (22059733) on the wiper control board. It is connected to the back of the wiper motor and is held on by 3 torx screws.
Radio Shack has them for $2.75 6A, 50V Rectifier Diodes (4-Pack) Model:276-1661

The windshield wipers on my 2001 Chevy Venture wont work in the "delay" positions...could this be a fuse/relay problem?


Most likely a little circuit board that controls the wiper delay, or the wiper switch itself has gone bad and has an intermittent break.

Wiper delay does not work


Intermittent wipers: Inside the wiper motor (of most cars) there is a diode or diodes. They burn out or they break. If you replace the diodes the intermittent wipers will work again. If you cannot replace the diodes, replace the wiper motor completely (used or new)

Winshield wiper delay intermitent module making noises


The wiper delay is in the steering column. It's a small box about 2 x 2 inches with a wiring harness attached. With the testing procedures I found below, you should be able to figure it out. I found wiper delays on eBay for around $10 to $20. Good luck.

WINDSHIELD WIPERS CHEROKEE, COMANCHE & WAGONEER 1. POWER INPUT Remove circuit breaker. Test battery side of circuit breaker. If battery voltage is not present, repair open to splice. Test across circuit breaker terminals. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, replace circuit breaker. 2. GROUND Connector A unplugged. Test terminal G. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, repair open to ground. 3. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Ignition switch in ACCY. Remove delay module and plug connectors together from the module. If wiper operate in LO and HI speed modes and mist (washer) is working, if wipers and mist operate, replace intermittent module. If not go to step 4. 4. WIPER/WASHER SWITCH Ignition in RUN, wiper switch position as indicated, back probe switch side of connector A for standard, connector B for intermittent: Test connector terminal E-wiper switch in LO and mist/intermittent. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. test connector terminal C-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. Test connector terminal F-wiper switch to OFF. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero (0), system is working fine. If this does not occur, replace switch. 5. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Connector B unplug. Test across terminal A and D while rotating switch from minimum to maximum delay. If tester reading is not between 0-500 ohms, replace switch. Test across terminal A and G while rotating switch from minimum delay to maximum delay. If tester reading is between 0 and 500 ohms, replace wiper module. If not replace switch. 6. WIPER MOTOR Ignition in ACCY, wiper switch position as indicated, probe connector D. Test connector terminal 1. If resistance is no zero (0) ohms,repair open to ground. Test connector terminal 4-wiper switch in any position. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. if is not repair open from fuse panel. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in LO. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 5-wiper switch OFF with voltmeter connected. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero, system is OK, replace motor. If not, repair open from wiper switch.

Wipers do not work


Guessed it's a V6. Power comes from 20A fuse 14 in the fuse block. The wiper/washer switch controls the wiper motor for HI/LO operation but an intermittent wiper control module affects the delay interval you select with the wiper switch

My 1996 chevy corsica has a wiper switch that is either slow or really fast would a switch from another 96 corsica that has the delay work with my 96 corsica? I found one at junkyard, dont want to get...


You will not be successful replacing just the switch. Cars with delay wipers utilize different wiper motors, and wiring harness's than cars without.

2000 chevy blazer.....front window wipers in-op....tried changing the fuse but still wont work


The wiper motor could be bad...the only wat to know is to check for voltage at the wiper motor. If the fuse is good and you have 12VDC to the motor...then the motor is bad. If you don't see voltage at the motor, I would suspect a bad wiper motor switch.

Good Luck,
Mike...

Intermittent windshield wipers


It sounds like the circuit board to the wiper module is cracked or has bad connection. There was a recall a few years back on certain GM model for this. I know you can get one at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instruction to replacing it.
Most of the time, the problem is the connection at the solder joint. Its a easy fix if you have a soldering gun and solder, just solder the break in the board or replace it.
Good luck and hope this helps.

WIndshield Wipers only start on fastest speed


There are three things involved in wiper operation, switch, the delay circuit board and the motor. If you select winshield wash do the wipers operate normaly? if this is the case then the motor works and delay is operating < not a guaranty on delay but it does say the circuit is operating.If wash cycle does not work then circuit not working< could still be switch causing this> if you know someone or you yourself can remove switch it needs to be ohmed to know that it is operating and if it is then voltage during operation in all settings needs checked at wiper motor.If no voltage found in inoperable settings then delay is not working.While investigating problems like this always inspect wiring as you check from point to point because could be damaged wires as well.
