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.

Gate light on my Jeep liberty is on, gate is closed and locked


The gate light on my 2002 Liberty was on for a long time and I researched on this site about it but ended up just hitting the trip meter button after starting up and that canceled it out. The other day my rear window wiper was not working and my security system had quit working also. Looking at the book in the fuse section I found that the rear window wiper is on it's own fuse, number 17 in my 2002. I took that fuse out and looked at it and it seamed good, no break or burn marks. I replaced the fuse anyway and low and behold the rear window wiper worked, the gate light went out, and the security system was working again. I could not find a fuse for the security system of the gate light.....they are all on the rear wiper fuse. Problem solved, hope this helps you, I found it purely by accident.

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.

My main windshield wipers stopped working. the rears still work and my turn signals too. basically just the front and fluid and about 4 months after they stopped i randomly hit the switch and they went on...


will try to help. the motor for the wipers may be bad. or it can also be a bad wiper motor switch,remember the tap every once in a while thing and they worked? well that says one or the others bad, with you tapping that switch on every once in awhile and they worked points towards the wiper motor itself. it's not very complicated to replace, but let me suggest that unless you are,ask your local mechanic to give an estimate for replacement of wiper motor.hope this helps and as always,thank you for choosing fixya.com if you would like to hear another solution, please repost and we'll be happy to help!

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.

Truck started and is running, but the key is locked in ignition


unplug the electrical connector to the igntion coil will make the car to quit running.
I think it's a mechanical problem with the ignition lock cylinder. it's required to remove the steering wheel to get to the igntion lock cylinder.
at least get the car to quit running so you can try to get the key to turn by keep on turning the key and move the shifter and tap the brake at the same time. hope it will get loose some how. good luck

It could be as simple as a blown fuse. Other problems involve wiring, switch, wiper motor. It needs to be checked by someone who understands wiring diagrams and follows it. Good luck!!!

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
