SOURCE: The windshield wipers quit working

turn key on then turn switch on, knock on motor with a small hammer and see if it starts working, if it does, then replace the motor.

Cruise Control, intermitent wipers acting up.


More then likely, the switch arm will have to be replaced, everything that contyrols your wipers and cruise are built into that left arm.

I hope this helps you.
