Replace the multifunction switch where the wiper switch and turn signal are located on the steering wheel.

May want to look at replacing the wiper circuit board.It is located on the firewall adjacent to the wiper motor and has a some what square black cover with 3 torx screws and wireing harness pluged into the side.We had a truck that every time you washed it the wipers would stay on until it dryed out.You can try removing it and spaying it down with contact cleaner just watch the brease on the two contact tips.Well hope this helps.

1999 gmc safari van wipers wont work


check fuse, then run a ground wire to the wiper motor and ensure the ground is good. if the wipers start to work then the motor just needs a permanent ground connected to it. if it doesn`t work then check for power at the motor if you have power then tap the motor with a hammer to see if it starts if so then the motor is bad.

The windshield wipers only work when they want to in my 1997 GMC Safari van.


these have had problems with the wiper motor having a bad ground.take a jumper wire and run it from a good ground to the body of the wiper motor.if this doesn`t help then with the wipers on(hopefully not working at the time)take a hit the motor and see if it starts to work.if it does then the motor has a bad spot in it(like a bad starter) and will need to be replaced.

sounds like an ignition switch glitch or ignition harness problem can be either depending on the amount of wear and tear with turning on and off of the ignition tumbler or possible chafing or inconsistent short in harness to ignition switch check the ground line up through harness first and check the wiring harness condition

My windshild work sporadicly. I was wondering if there is a fuse I should check before I take the van to the shop.


Hi,

Yes there is a fuse so just check that it is tight in the holder, but I would say it is either the wiper switch connection or the wiper motor itself.

Thanks
