Question about 1997 Chevrolet Venture

1998 Grand Prix wipers won't park

When you turn off the wipers they stay in the up position. With the wiper switch in either the "intermittant" or full "on" position they still stay in the up(straight up) position.

2005 ford escape wiper and washer has no power. cant hear it engage when on but was working a week ago. how can i troubleshoot it and find the fuse


Hi Justin , Do you know what a SJB - smart junction box is and where it is located on you escape ?
Windshield Wiper Operation
The smart junction box (SJB) supplies power to the multifunction switch from the SJB fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position. The multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor for the HIGH or LOW/INTERMITTENT input, depending on the multifunction switch position selected. The SJB also supplies power directly to the windshield wiper motor from fuse 25 (20A) when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position for RUN/PARK operation. When the multifunction switch is in the LOW, HIGH, or INTERMITTENT position, power is supplied to the windshield wiper motor, which moves the wipers off the park position. Once the wipers are off the park position, an internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches to the run/park position which directs power to the wiper switch then back to the wiper motor. This maintains power to the windshield wiper motor to complete the wipe cycle. When the cycle is complete, the internal switch in the windshield wiper motor switches back to the park position. If the multifunction switch is in the LOW or HIGH position, power is supplied from the multifunction switch and another wipe cycle starts. If the multifunction switch is in the INTERMITTENT position, the windshield wipers remain parked until the internal relay in the multifunction switch supplies power to the windshield wiper motor. The internal relay supplies power after a time delay that is determined by the 1 of 9 intermittent switch settings.

1997 Lincoln Mark viii wipers wont stow


It sounds like your park switch in the motor has failed or the power feed to the switch has failed. if you are good with tools you could remove motor and replace the switch, after you have checked that the plug is suppling a permant 12v supply and a switched supply from the wiper control switch, the park control switch allows the wipers to return to the parked lower position after you have turned them off.

There is a device made into the wiper motor itself, known as the wiper park switch. Its designed to turn off the wipers at a pre-determined position once you switch them off. The mfr recommends replacing the motor along with the intermittent timer (if equipped) at the same time when experiencing these problems.

The intermittent function for the wipers has a variable resistor that controls the timing of the wipers in this mode. Replacement of the wiper switch will resolve this issue. Over time they do become worn, and do not make contact during the entire wiper cycle.

2002 pontiac grand prix. windshield wipers stop straight up on windshield when turned off.


If you have just changed the wiper arms, they may not have been reinstalled correctly.....hoever if it has just started happening,,,,,???

unfortunately this is a wiper motor fault....not the switch.......inside the motor is a PARK function.....this is where the wipers will stop after doing a swipe across the windscreen and the switch is turned off.........this park function is a section inside the motor that cannot be removed and replaced internally, and it would cost more than just a replacement wiper motor

Good luck and i hope this helps...

Wipers won't stop wiping.


Sounds like your intermittent wiper circuit is defective. Normally the intermittent feature is engaged by one of the functions on the multi-function switch (usually on the steering column). The circuit of the intermittent wiper periodically activates a relay that closes across the "Wiper On" switch. Your intermittent wiper circuit is likely defective and holding its relay closed (or the relay is stuck closed), thereby keeping the wipers on. Note: The wiper motor has an internal switch that opens when the wipers are in the park position and that is designerd to stop the wipers in the park position. When you turn on the wipers (or the intermittent relay is closed), the motor's internal switch is shunted such that the wiper does not stop at the park point of the cycle.

Wipers Blades stay UP when in the off position


As far as the wipers staying up this is a common problem with them. I have a 2002 that had the same problem. There is what they call call a park tab that tells the wipers where to park at when they are turned off. Technically the tab should be replaced however I got by with heating it up and bending it back into the shape it is suppose to be in. You have to remove the cowl below the windshield to get to the motor which is where it is located. I would say the skill level required for this repair is at least a 3 on a scale of 5 being most difficult
