Well the good thing is you know the wipers work !! , I would start by seeing if the washer squirters work when using the Wiper lever . and I would also see if it worked on fast speed and slow speeds . If it does you may have a wiper switch that has gone bad ! ,

My windshield wipers just stopped working for my 1997 saturn sl2


Most certain that the fuse has blown out on the wiper section. So look on your fuse box for the Wiper fuse and replace with the spare available.
Now if the fuse blows out again there is short in the wiper motor , or it has jammed.
If the fuse is intact then the motor can be faulty or a possible break in the wiring.

My saturn's wiper blades won't stop. Is it the


No, prolly not the motor. If the wipers are working then the motor is doing its job. It would be the control portion-in the switch most likely.

1999 Saturn SL1 wipers work but won't stop once turned on! Until you hld them down from the outside or stop them just in time with ignition SUSPECT of course wiper motor? how many windshield wiper motors...


Same problem here. Check for a short in the wiring under the dash before replacing anything. I replaced the integral switch and the motor/module assembly and yet......they keep going and going and going. After shelling out 250.00 I wished I would of investigated a little more. My problem is the black wire from the ignition switch to the splice pack/ ground terminal is burnt. and also charred about 6 other wires. 3 of which pertain to the wiper switch assembly. I don't know if this helps, but hopefully it will.

The wwipers don't stop with switch on the off positsion. and what is ckt94


there is circuitry in the wiper motor to "park" the wiper blades in the full down position after you turn them off. that means that power is going to the wipers even with the switch off. this circuitry is going bad in your wiper motor. You will have to replace it, on the S series this should be done by an experienced saturn person, i.e. most likely a dealer. you will find a saturn wiper motor is nearly $400 while you can get one at advance or autozone for about $100. the labor is at least $200. when you shut the car off and restart it the wipers do not come back on until you turn them on?

I cant figure out how to change my windshield wiper blades on 2001 ford ranger


How to Replace Wiper Blades Guide (Typical):
Potential tools needed to replace wiper blades:
  • Flat blade screwdriver (small)
  • Small nosed pliers
  • Latex or vinyl gloves
  • Safety goggles
To replace wiper blades theactual action of replacing the blade is no big deal, it's the locationof the blade down below the hood that can make it difficult though.Sometimes it helps to open the hood to gain access to the wiper blades.Other times it is helpful if the wiper blade is somewhere in the motionline of wiper action. The trick is to get the wiper to stop somewherein the wiper arc. Turn the wipers to the on position and allow thewipers to start, and then shut the key off when the wiper has arrivedin a desirable position on the windshield. To replace your wiper bladesplease follow the step by step instruction below. Also, watch the How to replace wiper blades video below to gain additional information. The method in which the wiper blades are attached will vary slightly.
  • Step 1: With the hood closed, turn the wiperson, when the wipers are in the middle of their arc turn the key to theoff position. (Note: if this can't be done because of wiper conditionand you want to avoid scratching the windshield please open your hoodto gain access)
  • Step 2: Locate the mounting clips at the top pivot on the wiper blade
  • Step 3: Release the clip and remove the wiper arm
  • Step 4: Match the size of the old blade against the new blade to ensure proper fit and operation
  • Step 5: Reinstall the new wiper blade and recheck wiper operation

Common Problems:
  • Make sure the wiper blades are the same size as the original blades.
  • When replacing wiper blades not getting the blade onthe mounting pin completely allowing the wiper arm to become dislodgedand possibly causing damage to the windshield.
  • Using wiper blades after the blade has failed permanently damaging the windshield by craving scratches in the wiper arc.
  • Wiper blade can create a chattering noise when theblade is not properly balanced allowing the blade to "flop" back andforth as the wiper direction changes.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

How to replace Saturn wiper blades


The easiest way I do it is go to an national chain auto parts supplier like Discount Auto Parts or Auto Zone. They will select the correct blades and will put your wiper blades on for free. Take it from me after cracking my windshield once this is how I do it.
