Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
The wipers move as they should however when it comes to the resting position. They **** up and then stick straight up. what causes this and how can it be fixed
Wow. This can be complicated. GM wipers are pretty complicated. They run on a spring loaded eliptical cam. when turning forward, the cam locks in and rotated at a 1 to 1 ratio. When you shut off the wipers, the set-up disengages and rotates backwardsand the spring loading keeps tension on the wiper arms to push them into park position. Sometimes the stop gets bent out of position (that's the easy fix) Most of the time, the moving parts become worn or broken, especially due to snow or ice pack. The wiper is all one assembly and is nly available at the dealer. Skill level is maybe a 7 out of 10. Expense is moderate.

Your wiper park tab got bent, you can buy a whole new wiper motor chasis from GM or save a ton of money and bend it back w/ pliers. i reinforced mine with epoxy putty after straightening it so it wouldnt happen again (happened to me twice)
