Your car has somewhere a computer.
Nowadays most of the electronic circuitry goes "through" that computer.
Whenever the light comes on and stays on after starting the engine, there is a problem somewhere.
Here locally there are car parts stores, with hand held "computer testers".
These stores can test your computer for free and determine some of the reasons that light stays on.
You can also buy a "computer tester" of your very own if you wish. Prices around here run from 30 to 150 dollars, and include a book either on what is wrong by the code which reads on the display of the tester, or at least will tell you how to hook it up.
Usually there is a plug hanging under the dash, where you are not supposed to see it, that the store will use to plug in the tester.
The "check engine" light can actually tell you there may be several dozen problems, or maybe even more!
Some of these problems will affect the operation of your car, some will not.
A few of the you can fix yourself, most require a shop to fix.
If your area or state has vehicle inspections, your vehicle probably will not pass an inspection with the light on.

SOURCE: chevy cavalier 1997 wiper motor

It could be a fuse problem. The fuse box is located on the left side of the dash. It can be found with the door open and looking at the end of the dash. There is a small cover that when removed has a chart of what all the fuses go too. If the fuses proves to be good, the motor can be found under the hood (sort of).

To get to the wiper motor you will need to remove the wiper arms and then you will need to remove the black vent cover to get at it. It is only held in by five black panel clips. Once you have removed the clips and removed the wiper arms and the washer lines, lift up the cover and slide it out. Note: it comes out much easier than it goes back in. With the cover off, the wiper motor will be visible on the drives side of the car. Remove three screws (10 mm) and th entire assembly comes out. flip it over to see and depress the clip that holds the wiring on. You should be able to take it out and put it back in about 30 minutes. Try to do it on a warm day so that when you are reassembling it, you do not tear up the rubber seal around the windshield. I got the entire unit from my local junk yard for 30 bucks.

One more thing to consider as a possible problem is the wiper joystick in the car.

Hopefully it is only your fuse.

Some fault code is stored in the PCM (computer); to know what is the problem, I suggest scanned the PCM with some scanner reader codes. Autozone or AutoShop with this tools sometimes make this for free.

Hope this helps.

There is a symbol that lights up on my dash in between the mileage and the gear readouts it looks like a tranie or a motor, but i do not have a manual for my car and so do not know what the symbol means


orange would mean service engine, like the old orange colored service engine soon lights that are computer or emissions related. red would mean oil or engine problem. it's probably a motor symbol so we can dismiss ABS or other red brake light.
