2004 gmc envoy window won't go up rear wiper obstruction


I know this question is old, but I am responding so others with the same problem can see. I wired the Rear Window Motor Park Signal wire and the Rear Window Motor Speed Signal wire together and it completely bypassed the rear wiper motor. Now the window goes up and down. This doesn't fix the rear wiper motor, but you will be able to have access to it now that the window is out of the way

I made and album to show.

2003 Ford Explorer wiper stays on after vehicle is turned off


Every wiper motor has a switch built into it that is supposed to shut off the wiper when it reaches it's 'home' position. Apparently that is getting stuck. If you're brave you can try taking it a apart and check it out, otherwise you probably need a new motor.

The rear lift gate will not open or will the window


if they are controled or usually opened electrically, then it is probably a fuse. Check your fuse panel

make sure the back window is all the way up then try the wiper, if it still does not work then it is a sensor for the rear window (about $30.00) if you installed it yourself

these are totally separate circuits and therefore 2 different issues and unrelated, most likely u will need a window lift motor to fix the rear window issue, as far as the rear wiper goes a common issue is the wiring breaking from years of opening and closing the lift gate, the rear wiper most likely isn't getting any power as a result of this wiring damage.
