Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy

97 GMC Jimmy wipers stuck in up position

Wipers stuck in the up position and motor won't shut off even when switch is in the off position. I have to force them down then the motor will shut off. Sounds like coges are striped or something. Been having problem with them for a while now..getting worse. Do I need a different motor or just a motor connection part ?? Wish I had a picture of how it's put together before I remove a bunch of stuff just to find out.

Thank you for any help you can give me !!

This is a VERY Common Problem on the Blazer/Jimmy Models. You will need to Replace the Wiper Motor. The best place to Find a Diagram of this is to go to your Library and get a Haynes or Chilton Repair Manual. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Wiper oes not shut off why?


-possibly relay stuck in "ON" position. Unplug the relay and plug back to position. If it still on then replace new relay.

My 97 jimmy has no power to fuses at block to 4/5/10/16/20/ and no fire at plugs. is this an ignition switch problem or ECM ?


Those fuses are supplied by the ignition switch in the "start" position.
Either the switch is bad or the fusable link "B" in the underhood fuse/relay center is blown.

Dome light and key in ignition tone won't quit.


Yes, I would lean toward a stuck drivers door latch. Your door open switch is located in the latch itself and the ding is a reminder your key is in the ignition so you don't lock them in the vehicle when you lock the door. even though your door is shut, the truck still thinks it is open. sometimes spraying the latch with some WD-40 will get it freed up and working again, but a new latch might be in your future.

Windshield wipers will not turn off


Usually caused by the canceling switch in the wiper motor failing. The switch normally allows the wiper motor to operate after the wiper switch is turned off so that the wipers are in the down position when the motor shuts off; otherwise the wipers would stop in any position when you shut the switch off.

Wipers wont go off


When you turn off the switch, there is a second switch in the wiper motor that continues to run the wipers until they are parked. If the window where that switch does not keep the wipers running is too narrow, the momentum of the motor turning will carry the wipers past the end of that window—they will continue until they are not-quite-parked. But not-quite-parked, in an absolute sense, is not parked at all, and that switch will reestablish contact, running the wipers to try to get them to the parked position.

Once there, the overrun happens again, and the cycle repeats.

Beyond that, if that switch gets stuck it will keep running the wipers, parked or not.

Sometimes the wiper motor can be easily accessed, opened up, and that switch can be serviced and properly adjusted. Sometimes the motor needs to be replaced.

Find the connector that runs the wipers, and disconnect it while the wipers are running. The blades will stop where they are.

intermittently, and briefly, reconnect the wipers trying to get them to move only 5 or 10 degrees at a time. This will avoid the motor get up a head of steam. If the wipers stop responding to this once they are parked, the window that the switch considers "parked" is too narrow. If they just keep responding to the application of power, even when they are really in the parked condition, then the switch has arced shut.

Windshield wipers turn on own their own and won"t shut off even when the engine is shut off


Try swapping the wiper relay with a similar one in the fuse box. If no help, the body computer may have a stuck high relay control output. Check for poor wiring grounds near the body computer and near the wiper motor. Check the wiper motor auto-park switch for looseness.

Windshield wipers work intermittentaly


You may have a loose connection or more than likely a worn switch. This is probably a unitzed switch for the wipers and turn signals

Wipers quit working how does the actuator actually work at the switch


not sure of the question but wipers not working is commonly the wiper board mounted right on the wiper motor.
