Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix
How do you remove the actual windshield wiper arm? I've gotten the cover and bolt off, just can't get the arm loose from the post.
Sometimes you have to use a small gear puller. The arm could be tapered and is wedged onto the shaft.

The arm is stripped onto the stud its pressed into which is call a wiper transmission. That part mounts to eack ww blade then to the wiper motor. You need a new transmission and maybe a new wiper are as well

If you have just changed the wiper arms, they may not have been reinstalled correctly.....hoever if it has just started happening,,,,,???
unfortunately this is a wiper motor fault....not the switch.......inside the motor is a PARK function.....this is where the wipers will stop after doing a swipe across the windscreen and the switch is turned off.........this park function is a section inside the motor that cannot be removed and replaced internally, and it would cost more than just a replacement wiper motor
Good luck and i hope this helps...

The washer pump runs off the same fuse as the wipers. If the wipers are working the fuse is good.
What you can do is locate the washer pump in the washer fluid resevoir. You will need to remove some splash panels under the car to get at it. Unplug the connector. One wire should have 12 volts to it anytime the washer button is depressed. The other wire should be grounded all the time. If that checks out the washer pump is bad.
If you don't have power than I would check for power out of the wiper/washer switch. If there is no power there than the switch is bad. If there is power than there is a wiring issue in between the switch and the washer pump.
With the washer pump lugged in you can try to tap it while somebody turns on the washers. If it starts to work than replace it.

The wiper motor on a Volkswagen is located directly underneath the plastic cowl cover. The cowl cover is located directly below the windshield.
Begin by removing the wiper arms by prying off the covers at the base of the arms and removing the nuts that secure the arms to the drive shafts. Label the passenger and driver arms so they can be installed in the same positions. They are not interchangeable. Remove the rubber hood to cowl weather seal. Unscrew the plastic fasteners from the driver's side of the cowl cover, then remove this half of the cover. Remove the fasteners from the passenger's side cowl cover and remove this half of the cover. Disconnect the windshield wiper motor wiring harness by separating the plastic wiring connector. Remove the three bolts that secure the wiper motor to the vehicle's body. Pull the motor slightly away from the body, then remove the nut that connects the motor shaft to wiper linkage. Remove the motor.
Place the new wiper motor into position in the cowl and reconnect it to the wiper arm linkage. Then reinstall the three retaining bolts. Reconnect the plastic wiring connector to the wiper motor wiring harness. Place the cowl covers into position below the windshield and reinstall the plastic fasteners that retain them. Reinstall the rubber hood to the cowl weather seal. Reinstall the wiper arms in the same position you removed them from, along with the wiper arm retaining nuts and lower wiper arm covers. Turn the windshield wipers on and test for proper operation. If the wiper blades slap against the bodywork surrounding the windshield, loosen the nuts that connect the wiper arms to the shafts and adjust.
