SOURCE: rear wiper motor broke

Well you going to have to open the tailgate up and remove the inside cover that is attached to it. You will need a small flat head and a No. 2 star head screw driver and some gloves so that you don't cut your hands....

First where the handle is remove the caps on the handle and then remove the handle there may be a small pocket around the handle to remove it also with the screw driver....And then remove the garnish from around the tailgate by using the small flat head and your fingers to pry it off with....Remember just to take your time when doing this and wear some safety glasses so that nothing goes in your eyes.

Once you have removed the garnish you should see the wiper motor there should be three bolts that hold it in place and wire wire coupler that it hooked up to it. And before you undo the motor you will need to go on the outside of the tail gate you will need to remove the wiper arm off of the motor and then take the rest off after that.

2002 trialblazer rear window wiper inop. changed switch and motor. no power to motor. cannot find relay nor fuse


There are something's involved that you are not aware of , or familiar with . Electronic control modules .
Rear Wiper/Washer System Controls
• Body control module (BCM)
• Liftgate control module (LGM)
• Rear wiper/washer switch
Do you know what a serial data network is ?
Rear Wiper/Washer System Operation
The rear window wiper/washer switch is an input to the BCM. The requested rear wiper mode is sent to the liftgate control module (LGM) by the BCM as a message on the serial data circuit, and the rear window wiper motor is controlled by the LGM. The switch power circuit to the rear wiper/washer switch is a 12-volt reference supplied by the BCM during ignition on, accessory or RAP power modes. The rear wiper/washer switch is a series of resistors and the switch position is determined by the voltage of the rear wiper/washer switch signal circuit to the BCM. The rear wiper/washer switch has continuity at all times and the BCM expects a rear wiper/washer switch signal voltage in all switch positions including OFF. The rear wiper motor is supplied battery positive voltage and ground. The LGM controls rear wiper motor operation through the rear wiper motor control circuit. The rear wiper motor control circuit is supplied a battery positive reference voltage by the rear wiper motor module and is pulse width modulated to ground by the LGM. The duty cycle of the pulse width modulation determines the rear wiper motor operating mode. The liftglass and liftgate ajar switches are inputs to the LGM and must be in an inactive state in order for rear wiper washer system operation to be enabled. When an ajar switch is active the LGM suspends wiper motor operation directly and sends the ajar switch status messages over the serial data circuit enabling the BCM to suspend washer pump operation. The rear window washer pump is controlled by the BCM through the rear washer relay. Battery positive voltage is supplied to the coil and switch sides of the rear washer relay. When the rear window wash request is active the BCM energizes the relay by grounding the relay coil through the rear washer relay control circuit. When the relay is energized battery positive voltage to the relay switch is supplied to the washer pump control circuit.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop and have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
DTC B1017 or B3970

What you will need to do is to remove the small plastic cap on the wiper arm by prying it off with a screw driver. Then remove the nut that holds the arm onto the shaft. Then get yourself a battery cable puller (from auto parts store) and pull the arm off of the shaft..

Hello,

  1. Disconnect the cable running to the negative terminal on the car's battery. To do this, loosen the nut on the cable clamp until the clamp is loose enough for you to slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
  2. Pull the wiper arm away from the rear windshield until the wiper arm locks into a vertical or semi-vertical position or is perpendicular to the rear windshield.
  3. Remove the nut holding the wiper arm assembly to the rear wiper motor.
  4. Pull the wiper arm off the wiper motor assembly.
  5. Unplug the rear wiper motor plug/harness.
  6. Remove the screws holding the rear wiper motor to the inside of the vehicle at the base of the rear window.

Rear wiper


It,s a good possibility that the motor is bad, but first do this, turn on the rear wiper switch and go to the rear wiper motor and with a screwdriver handle tap on the motor body and see if it moves. Sometimes the brushes in the motor get stuck and tap on the motor body will loosen them up, also make sure you have power going to it.
