There is a small circuit board under the wiper motor cover that can be replaced. My wipers hung up or would quit unexpectedly in various posistions, I replaced the board and solved the problem.

After a brief snow and freeze, my wipers stopped working. I left the wiper switch on when I turned off the car. Next day, after scraping the ice and snow, I started the car, the wipers wanted to mov


The wipers lost their index... Turn the car on, turn the wipers on, shut the car off when the wipers reach their full down position. Turn the wipers off, the. Turn the car back on. This should relearn the wiper index.

The wipers are stuck in the up position when they are turned off. the work ok but will not nest when turned off


This is a very common problem on the Impalas. I had to fix my 2002 Impala. The wipers will point straight up.
There is a tab that may be bent near the wiper motor shaft.
Open the hood.
You need to remove the driver's side wiper arm. You need to pop-off the round black cover and there's a nut underneath.
Then remove the plastic cover between the windshield and the engine compartment.
See the pictures below, Look for a bent TAB. it's tough, but bend it back with pliers and/or big screwdriver.
If the tab is OK, look for a missing or broken spring. For that, you'll need to get the replacement part from the dealer. May be: park mechanism, part #12494832

This is a common problem on the Impalas. There is probably a bent tab under the driver side wiper. See this website for more info:

There is a piece in the motor that tells them to go home - so try this
take the entire wiper blade off the car - turn on the motor - and then shut it off - now
put the entire units back on where they should stop
please let me know if this fixes your problem.

I have a 2003 Chev Impala, the wipers work fine except the fact that the wiper on the driver side goes about 2 to 3 inches off the windshield, how do I fix this problem???? Its starting to scratch the...


Sounds like the wiper arm needs to be repositioned on the motor. You can attempt this yourself, by turning on the ignition (don't start the car, just turn ignition to on position), turn on the wipers, when they reach the top of the swing, shut the ignition off, this should stop the wipers at the top of the swing. Then you can disconnect the wiper arm and reposition it to the right spot to where it doesn't leave the window edge. Hope this helps

Wipers willnot return to park position


I've fixed this problem before. You have to disconnect the wiper transmission from the wiper motor. Put wipers in off position, unbolt the plate on top of wiper, turn wipers on then off. In the off position see where the wiper transmission is position in relation to where the park position is, remove the top plate from wiper motor and position it so as to be able to reconnect the wiper transmission now in the proper place. Please keep me informed. thanks you

Windshield wipers not parking


The problem could be a bent parking pall bracket. This is usually caused when you wipe snow from windshield using the wipers instead of brushing off. You need to remove both wipers and the cover from the drivers side. Remove the cover over the wiper motor assembly (held by a plastic button). On the right side of the wiper mechanism is a small tab (part of the wiper bracket). This tab needs to be straight for the wiper park pall to rest against.Carefully hammer this tab straight (or you may have to replace bracket, big job) Then cycle the wiper and you will see the assembly return to park position. Re-install all parts in reverse order.
Hope this works for you.
