1996 Trans Sport Windshield Wipers sometimes don't work

The front wipers on my 1996 Trans Sport sometime fail to come on. The back one will work OK. Eventually, they will start, but it is kind of a hassle when you are driving and it starts to rain. Anyone have a problem like this that they solved? Thanks Ihave the same darn problem only my wipers are hooked into the fusebox with a wire that also runs the cooling fan,talk about a rigged job I mean geez!!!

There is a little circuit board behind the plastic cover on your wiper motor. You can get a new one from most parts stores. They are about 20 - 30 bucks. Remove and replace, and it'll work like new.

Wipers work sometimes, and sometimes they don't


Sometimes the wiper motor will develop a bad spot internally. If the wipers seem to stop while they were actively operating fine, try leaving the switch on and manually move the wipers by hand, in either direction. If they start moving again after you move them by hand, then your motor is bad. If not, it may very well be what was suggested concerning the wires in the steering column; However the steering column solution can be tested by turning on the wipers and then moving the steering wheel left and right, if they turn off or on, then the wires are likely rubbing against metal, which will wear off the plastic insulation and short out. If no fuse has ever blown, then it is most likely a bad motor or switch. Best wishes!

Wipers malfunction


You will need to replace the module that is attached to the w/s wiper motor (black cover). Sometimes tapping on this cover will make the wipers come on when they are not working.

Front wipers on my 1996 Pontiac Trans Sport stop mid-cycle


A couple things could be but not limited to - weak motor, wiper transmission needs lubricant, worn out bushings or bearings for wiper arm causing added friction. You might take to a GM Dealer to see if there is a bulletin or notice about the wipers.
