2002 trailblazer rear wiper works intermittently

I have a 2002 trailblazer that started acting up on me. The rear wiper works sometimes great and others, only works once and quits. If I tap on it with engine and wiper switch turned on, it will start and work great. Is there some sort of sensor or contacts that are going bad or need cleaning? Any help is greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Turn signals sometimes don't work

Change the flasher to an electronic unit. They are far less likely to give you trouble.

SOURCE: front windshield wipers stall or work very intermittantly when on

It is likely that where the wiper arm is attached to the linkage  it is either loose or stripped.

SOURCE: Need to know signs of my starter going bad

I have a 96 Cavalier and lately, sometimes when I go to start my car, I turn the key and the engine won't crank. All of the dash lights turn on, so I don't think it would be the battery. If I wait a few minutes and try again, it fires right up. This is probably the first sign of the starter failing. I've been told to whack the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the key, but have also been told that with Cavaliers build in the 90's and up, this is a no-no. There are magnets inside the starter that can break if hit with enough force. I have yet to have the starter fail to the point of not being able to start it at all, but I'm sure that time is coming. Hopefully, I can trade this POS in for something decent.

SOURCE: intermittent wipers quit this morning

It is most likely the circuit board on motor module.

2002 Trailblazer Acts like cat. converter is clogged, but only when in gear.


It may be worth your while to have an exhaust back-pressure test done to make sure your converter isn't plugged. When the vehicle is in neutral, there is very little load on the engine, so a blocked exhaust may not be as apparent as it would be in gear.

02 TB, cruise control works intermittently, now wipers wont come on


Debbie, this sounds to me to be the control arm that turns your wipers on and also has the cruise control operation also on the lever, When this wears out you can have weird symptoms, sometimes the wipers will work and the cruise wont and sometimes the other way around. On the starting issue, it sounds like the ignition switch on the column is worn out sometimes making contact and sometimes not. If the vehicle has a ton of miles on it these plastic parts wear out and need replacing.

2005 Trailblazer EXT. Blower speed control not working...


Problem with blower motor is the blower motor resistor. They are usually located next to the blower motor, a couple of screws and a couple of plugs and your done. Autozone sells them for around $30 each. Wipers you may want to check for relays under the hood in the fuse block. There may be 2 relays 1 for low and 1 for high. I have switched relays from other working accesories and got wipers to work. Sometimes bad connection.

2002 Rear Wiper motor continuously runs


LOOK ON THE BASE OF THE WIPER ARM WHERE IT CONNECTS TO THE MOTOR THERE SHOULD BE A CAP THERE, FLIP IT OPEN AND TIGHTEN THE NUT, AND RECLOSE THE COVER. THIS SHOULD STOP YOUR PROBLEM

Windshield wipers intermittent on 2002 Windstar


2002 Windstar wipers would come on by themselves, or not work set on intermittent, driver door lock would not work sometimes, ABS and brake light would come on sometimes, the problem was in the park switch inside the wiper motor. I replaced with wrecking yard wiper motor $44.95 w/13 month warranty. no more problem. check how many pins on connector plug, mine had 5 on the wiper motor side.Take the wiper assembly off of the metal cowl, 2 nuts, & I bolt, it is easier to snap the actuator pieces off of the wiper motor that way. God Bless JMR
