disconnect the wiper transmission from the motor, then run the motor and turn the motor off with the wiper switch, this will park the motor, re-attach the wiper trans linkage so the wipers are parked/down

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

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.

Can not get windshield wipers to turn off on 2003 Silverado 1500. They will turn on high speed when switch is moved but will not quit working in off position.


You have a bad wiper module.Just go under the hood and remove the connector at the wiper motor and remove the cover.You need a 20 torx bit.Pry the module out and replace it per the instructions in the new module box.You can get this part at the dealership.You will need to add sealer to the edges of the cover to keep water out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

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
