Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Some wiper arms fit over a splined pivot post. When you tighten the nut down, the splines cut into the wiper arm thus holding it tight and keeping it from slipping on the post.
You may just need to tighten the wiper arm down r replace the wiper arm. Does it have a cover that you can rotae up and expse the nut?

a little tip a friend gave me in unlocking the 4wd drive on ramps or hill and then put in neutral let roll back a foot put in park and then let off the 4wd
when in 4wd the hubs get a little heated cause they need greased so they stick into position making it hard to come out of 4wd this which i spoke of i got stuck in the senerio where i almost drove home in 4wd from 300 miles away but i called my friend he told me bought this and so i thought it could help you
your hubs just locked up on you your bearings are going to need to be packed again this is normal for this

This would more than likely NOT be a sensor problem.
In replacing the hinges you more than likely disrupted the wires that run from the cab into the door, causing a ground, pinching a wire or in some way causing no power to get through one of the wires. There is a rubber boot that runs between the door and the cab, pull it back and have someone hold the button in the down position. Then wiggle the wires until the window moves. That truck will have defog mirrors on it more than likeley so there will be plenty of wires to wiggle. When you find the problem wire simply cut the problem area, replace it with an end to end connector (**** connector) and seal it with silicone. If it is not one of the wires, you more than likely had a wire come off inside the door. (depends on how much you horsed it when you were changing those hinges) Thats where i'd start.
Best Of Luck!

First remove the wiper arms.Then remove the screws that hold the black plastic grill, you will see the motor.You will need then to disconnect the wiper arm transmission linkage from the motor, then remove the three bolts holding the motor on, dont't forget to disconnect the electrical connector from the motor.Install in reverse order.Good luck.

Unscrew inside panel on tailgate (3 screws-1 each side, 1 in the middle), unclip and remove by pulling up and out towards the rear. Unscrew all screws holding steel plate down, unclip plastic clips that hold the rod running behind the plate and unhook rod at top of that opens the window. Unclip wiring harnesses, remove wiper from the outside (1 nut holding it down)and unbolt the motor. It is pretty self explanatory once you have the steel plate removed, just remove and install the screws and clips in the same order and try it out before you put all your screws back into the steel plate since there are so many. Back window must be closed for wiper motor to work. To save yourself from replacing the motor with a new one, 9 out of 10 times it is simply the locking washer has come off of the gear inside the motor, if you pop off the plastic motor cover you will see the washer is off the gears are out of place. I realigned the gear and replaced the washer with a "C" clip and it has been working great for over a year!

the problem you are discribing would lead me to belive your fuel filter is clogged which is a simple fix 3 dollar part at any part store or on the worse hand your fuel pump itself could be weak you can open the gas tank cover and have another person turn the truck key to the on position without going far enough to start you will hear a faint whining noise if it is going bad or a louder noise if it is fine Good Luck
