Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu

WIndshield Wipers only start on fastest speed

Pretty much the title says it all. The windshield wipers will only start at the fastest speed, and will not begin to wipe at any speeds that are lower than that.

There are three things involved in wiper operation, switch, the delay circuit board and the motor. If you select winshield wash do the wipers operate normaly? if this is the case then the motor works and delay is operating < not a guaranty on delay but it does say the circuit is operating.If wash cycle does not work then circuit not working< could still be switch causing this> if you know someone or you yourself can remove switch it needs to be ohmed to know that it is operating and if it is then voltage during operation in all settings needs checked at wiper motor.If no voltage found in inoperable settings then delay is not working.While investigating problems like this always inspect wiring as you check from point to point because could be damaged wires as well.

Wipers will not turn on 2006 colorado


There are two relay's in the under hood fuse / relay box . Wiper relay an wiper relay 2 . Maybe one is bad . also check fuse #14 25 amp. Wiper fuse.Plus the BCM - body control module has a hand in making the wipers work . Are you familiar with automotive electronic control modules ?
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Body control module (BCM)
• Wiper micro relay
• Wiper 2 relay
• Wiper diode
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield washer pump
• Windshield washer nozzles
• Windshield washer solvent container
• Windshield wiper arm and blade assemblies
• Windshield wiper transmission
• WIP/WASH 10A fuse
• WIPER 25A fuse

Wiper/Washer System Description
The body control module (BCM) controls wiper motor low speed operation. The washer pump and high speed operation are controlled directly by the wiper/washer switch. The windshield wiper/washer switch supplies voltage on the signal circuits to the BCM for windshield wiper/washer operation. When WASH, MIST, DELAY, LOW, or HIGH is detected, the BCM energizes the wiper micro relay by suppling voltage to the relay coil. This allows battery voltage from the WIPER fuse to flow through the relay switched input then through the contacts and out the relay switched output to the wiper 2 relay switch contacts. Since the wiper 2 relay switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.

Do you have any speed !

The windshield wipers on my 1994 S 300 mercedes diesel work intermittently then quit and start up again seems like they are ready to crash for good. how do i repair so they work when needed?


1) It is normal for the wipers, in rain sensor mode, to cycle once upon startup.

2) In rain sensor mode, the wipers should be intermittent with the cycles increasing as the volume of moisture increases on the windshield. The speed will increase until it reaches the continuous slow speed of position 2 on the switch. It will not increase to the fastest speed which is position 3 on the switch. You have to go to the fastest speed by manually rotating the switch to postion 3. Doesn't seem like a design flaw to me.

Windshield Wiper System The windshield wiper system consists of :
  • Windshield wiper motor (17508) (F-type).
  • Washer system.
  • Windshield wiper control module.
  • Turn signal and windshield wiper switch (13K359).
The windshield wiper control module is:
  • Located at the instrument panel fuse panel.
The windshield wiper motor is:
  • Attached to the cowl top extension (021A36) .
  • Connected to windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft (17566) .
The turn signal and windshield wiper switch features a:
  • Rotary wiper switch.
  • Push type washer actuator.
OFF/Low/High Speed
  • Has a two-speed, permanent magnet, three brush electric windshield wiper motor .
  • The windshield wiper motor has a brush rigging that permits selection of low or high speed.
  • When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the LO position, the common brush and the blue/orange wire brush are used, and the windshield wiper motor operates at low speed.
  • When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the HI position, the common brush and the white wire brush are used.
  • In HI position, electric current will bypass a portion of the armature winding causing the windshield wiper motor to operate faster.
  • When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is moved to the OFF position, the windshield wiper motor will continue at low speed until the park switch outer contacts open.
  • When the park switch contacts open, the windshield wiper motor stops in the park position.
Interval
When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the interval position:
  • The wipers make single wipes separated by pauses.
  • The rotary switch is on the end of turn signal and windshield wiper switch .
  • The length of the pause can be set from approximately 1 to 17 seconds.
  • Length of pause decreases as the rotary switch is rotated away from off.
  • Length of pause increases as the rotary switch is rotated toward off.
While in the interval wiper mode:
  • It is normal to hear a slight click at the beginning of each on/pause cycle. NOTE: When using interval wipers, the first wipe may not occur until after a pause of up to 17 seconds.
