SOURCE: Sometimes my windshield wipers work

This is a common GM problem. The issue lies in the control module which is the black cover on the driver's side of the firewall under the hood. The replacement kit for these run between $35 and $55 depending on where you purchase them. the remanufactured units are just as good. They come with 3 new Torx head screws, the circuit/relay board, di electric grease for the connector and a new cover. Takes about 3 minutes to change.

SOURCE: The Windshield Wipers won't work and the motor

dear,

I think there is some problem with the fuse.
as giving the direct current makes it to move.....so you are suggested to look for the current supply from the battery.
check the fuse.
check the switch

thanx

you need to check for power and signal from the wiper switch to the wiper motor.if you have both then the motor is bad if not then it could be several other things.

  • You need to open up the drivers side door and look at that harness that stretches between the door and the door frame. Inside that harness are the wires for the electronics in the cabin and then some.

  • Over time those wires get pinched and crack and break. So you need to splice the casing (or just simply slide the harness to one side and then the other) open the long ways and inspect the wiring. Your looking for broke, split, rusted, bulging or otherwise negated wiring. The boots on either side may need to come off to look up inside for broke wires as well. Usually it's pretty evident which wires are messed up but sometimes you have to do a little digging.


  • When you find the broke wire[s] splice some new wire[s] in and use electric tape to re-insulate.


  • This is a common problem across the board with many car manufacturers and repairing the harness almost always is the fix in a situation such as yours.



  • Hope this helps.

Hi I've got a c class 2006 and my wipers are only working when I'm actually driving as at above say5 mph. If I'm stationary at traffic lights or a junction then they won't work?...


i replied to this in your follow up question, but will add this also,, replace the wiper blades, and also,, clean your windshield with a windshield cleaner wax, your wipers could be old, and actually sticking or dragging not letting the vacuum drive at low idle move them

The windshield wipers on my Chevy Blazer 97 stopped working,just makes a sound, but not moving? What do I need to check/replace?


Sounds like the windshield wiper motor needs to be replaced. The gear inside may be stripped so you'll hear it running but it won't do anything. I've had that happen with the rear wiper motor. Hope that helps.
