If the 1991 is anything like th 1969 to 1982, the ground is open under the dash at the wiper switch. Check for the ground at the wiper motor when the wipers decide not to work. Grounding is problematic on a fiberglass bodied vehicle. Hope this is of help.

1981 corvette wiper delay


Sounds like the delayed wipers are not working but the regular wipers are working. If this is true check the delayed wiper board in the wiper motor it is probably shorted out.

Working on a 2000 jeep grand cherokee. front wipers do not work. fuse is good. have power and ground at motor. 2 new relays in onoff and highlow cavities. new wiper switch at colomn. what am i missing?


If you have power to the wiper motor and the motor will not come on then your wiper motor is bad. When the wiper switch is off their should be no power to the motor. When the wiper switch is on, power is sent to the wiper motor and the wiper then turns on. The relay is use probably to control the wiper speeds you select. I hope this helps.

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!

Windshield wipers not working on 71 Corvette


Check for power at the wiper motor. The door is vacuum operated the wiper motor is electric. If there is power present the motor is bad, if not check the fuse, and then check the wiper switch. My guess is that the wiper motor is bad.

Wipers wont shut off


Check to make sure you are getting power to the wiper motors. Also check relay. Either one could be bad.

Sounds to me like a weak windshield wiper motor.  My 92 sable did this.  Replacing the motor solved the problem.
