2003 Impala wipers don't work have power and new motor but nothing moving when on


Depending on what your trying to do with wipers, I'd want to see voltage on the gray and or purple wire. See the black wire at the bottom that is ground, a good ground is a must. Hey Jeff, I'm not trying to bug you. If I spend time trying to look up info, I'm going to post it. I don't care if the question has already been answered. Have a good day.

What could be my problem for my windshield wipers to suddenly start and stop working?


It could be the screws are loose (at the bottom end of the wipers)
There may be a rubber cap you will need to access the screws. (Also worth checking if the wiper motor is working when wipers are not)

Other possibility, the wiper motor fuse is loose with intermittent connection - locate the fuse box and take out all fuses, inspect them for damage/burn marks and insert them firmly back.

Hope this helps

Wipers stop in the middle of my wishield,will not park properly


Sorry , no adjustment .
Wiper/Washer System Components
The Wiper / Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper / washer switch
• Windshield wiper system module / motor
• Windshield washer fluid pump
• Windshield washer fluid level switch
• WPR 25A fuse
Wiper / Washer System Operation
The windshield wiper motor module is part of the windshield wiper motor cover and controls the wiper motor operation. The windshield wiper motor is a 2 speed motor. Windshield wiper DELAY operation is a low speed wiper motor function with a variable delay interval between the wipe cycles. The DELAY interval is controlled through a series of resistors within the wiper / washer switch.
Park Position Operation
When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

How to fix a blower motor for a 2003 buick lesaber


Under and behind the glove box. Three screws hold blower motor in place.

Replace blower motor with a quality aftermarket one. Fairly easy to do if you are young and flexible! A half hour job.

Wiper blade slipped loose in heavy rain.


Unplug the electrical connector at the wiper motor. Use a voltmeter to check for power and ground on the Pink and dark green wires. This setup has two relays: hi speed and low speed. If you're not getting power and ground with IGN switch on RUN and wipers turned on, then yank the relays and check for ground to the relay control coils provided by the body control module. The wiper switch acts as a signal to the BCM to provide ground to the relays. The switch doesn't actually switch power to the relays.

2003 Chevy SuBurban The windshield wipers will not stop when turned off. How do I locat the relay and motor? 919-880-5755


It is actually a wiper control module that controls this. I have replaced many of them. It is the cover that is screwed to the wiper gear box. Remove both wiper arms. Remove the plastic cowl cover below the windshield that covers from side to side. Once inside you will see the wiper motor/transmission assy. Disconnect the electrical connector, and remove screws from cover, and replace it.

My passenger side windshield wiper does not work. It is on a 1985 Buick LeSaber Collector'd edition.


is the wiper itself spline drive stripped out or is it simply not connected properly ?
also under the hood and under the plastic cowl you should be able to see whether or not the wiper arm is connected it will be one of those 2 options i assure you
