My winshield wipers are stuck up ward instead of down what so I need to repair this


the wipers till work but they will not park in the down position, correct?

The usual fix for this is to replace the wiper motor pulse board. You can find them at your local auto parts store for about $50

the wiper motor will be under the plastic cowl that is under the wipers arms. Once the wiper arms and cowl are removed you will see the wiper motor.

I can give you some more details if you would like to try to tackle this yourself. The wiper arms can sometimes be a challenge to remove and often require a small two jaw pulley to press them off from the posts. If you can get the wiper arms off the rest is a breeze as long as you have some basic tools and a set of torx bits.

.windsield wipers will not return home. when


This is probably due to an electrical metal contact within the motor having broken. The contact is pushed by a cam to complete the wipers electrical cycle and stops when the wipers reach their park point on the screen.

Winshield Wiepers,1998 Buickregal


apparently, something inside the wiper motor spun and now it thinks the down position is the up position.

a new wiper motor is my only suggestion since the sensors/controls in these motors arent user serviceable.

Good luck and be careful!

Likely you don't have the blade arms adjusted properly. Also, make sure that the motor has a good ground or it will not "park" when turned off.

1993 jeep cherokee country series--replace windshield wipers


Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.

Buick century 2000 wipers stay upright when turned off otherwise works fine


I found the following description on the web, this covers a bunch of the questions I was going to ask...

I own a 2000 Silo and wondered the same thing and do see some GM vans with this problem.

When I bought mine I also bought the Haynes Repair manual (1997 thru 2001 all models GM) #38036 to learn how to fix this and a LOT of other components in/on the van.

For $20 it's worth it.

To answer your question: If the wipers stop at the position they're in when the switch is turned off (Fail to park), disconnect the multi-function switch electrical connector. (This is located under the dash next to the firewall and steering column)

If the wipers now park, replace the multi-function switch. If the wipers still do NOT park, check the wiring from the wiper motor to the switch for a short circuit. If the circuits are good, replace the wiper motor.

Note: There are other adjustments needed for proper operation than just bolting and new motor on.

You can have a look at this manual at any automotive parts supply store.
