Yes this is an issue on many Chevys with no recall. MOST of the time the problem you are describing is the wiper motor "pulse board", not the motor itself. Bad solder joints in the thin board, crack, so vibration and normal driving make them worse, and no contact is being made. Good news...Advance Auto Parts carries these for approx. $30, much cheaper than motor replacement. Just like wiper motor removal but all you have to do is remove (3) screws holding pulse board on motor housing, and most IMPORTANT, always put a thin bead of silicone or quality sealer around edge before re-install, this helps with vibration as well as waterproofing. Hope this helps!

We had the same problem and sometimes they wouldn't turn off. The intermittent wipers were random. We replaced the wiper motor. Be sure to get the motor with two balls on the wiper shaft (one for each wiper arm). If you can't find it, you'll have to change the part out on the new motor. Keep the wiper arms in the same location on removal, or it will jam and you'll have to start over.

SOURCE: windshield wiper switch

The only other part that could be the problem with the winshield wipers not working in slow-mode or not park when you shut off the wiper switch is the winshield wiper motor, it has a park swith inside the motor to shut off the wipers and park them were they should be.

The intermittent function for the wipers has a variable resistor that controls the timing of the wipers in this mode. Replacement of the wiper switch will resolve this issue. Over time they do become worn, and do not make contact during the entire wiper cycle.

Intermittent Speed Windshield Wipers
The intermittent wiper speed is activated with grounds controlled by the multifunction switch inputs to the windshield wiper motor module. The windshield wiper motor module then activates the windshield wiper RUN/PARK relay coil and switches voltage through the windshield wiper high/low relay. The high/low relay remains deactivated supplying the voltage to the wiper motor low speed input and activates the windshield wiper motor. When the windshield wiper motor module receives the grounded input, the motor continues to operate until Hall effect senses magnet to turn off RUN/PARK sense the output to the windshield wiper RUN/PARK software, deactivating the relay and disconnecting voltage to the wiper motor. The windshield wipers remain parked until the windshield wiper motor module completes a time-out and then repeats the intermittent windshield wiper cycle.

  • The intermittent windshield wiper speed does not operate correctly
  • Multifunction switch.
  • Circuitry.
  • Windshield wiper motor.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test D .

Pinpoint Test D: The Intermittent Windshield Wiper Speed Does Not Operate Correctly
Normal Operation During normal operation, the windshield wiper motor receives voltage at all times through battery junction box (BJB) fuse 1 (30A), circuit 65 (DG). The windshield wiper motor also receives power with the ignition switch in RUN or ACC positions through central junction box (CJB) fuse 33 (15A), circuit 1002 (BK/PK). Ground is provided to the windshield wiper motor through circuit 676 (PK/OG) and circuit 57 (BK). The run/park and high/low relays are contained in the wiper motor electronics. Mode of operation is dependant on the signal(s) received from the multifunction switch.
    Possible Causes
  • Multifunction switch
  • Open in circuit 57 (BK), 56 (DB/OG), 61 (YE/RD) or 63 (RD)
  • Windshield wiper motor
PINPOINT TEST D: THE INTERMITTENT WINDSHIELD WIPER SPEED DOES NOT OPERATE CORRECTLY Test Step Result / Action to Take D1 CHECK THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH
  • Key in OFF position.
  • Disconnect: Multifunction Switch C202b.
  • Carry out the multifunction switch component test. Refer to Wiring Diagrams Cell 149 for schematic and connector information.
  • Did the multifunction switch pass the component test?
Yes
GO to D2 .

No
INSTALL a new multifunction switch. REFER to Section 211-05 . TEST the system for normal operation. D2 CHECK CIRCUIT 57 (BK) FOR OPEN
  • Measure the resistance between multifunction switch C202b-6, circuit 57 (BK), harness side and ground.
  • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms?
Yes
GO to D3 .

No
REPAIR the circuit. TEST the system for normal operation. D3 CHECK CIRCUITS 56 (DB/OG), 61 (YE/RD) AND 63 (RD) FOR OPENS
  • Disconnect: Windshield Wiper Motor C125.
  • Using the following table, measure the resistance between multifunction switch C202b harness side and windshield wiper motor C125 harness side:

    Multifunction Switch C202b Windshield Wiper Motor C125 Pin 2, circuit 56 (DB/OG) Pin 10, circuit 56 (DB/OG) Pin 4, circuit 61 (YE/RD) Pin 1, circuit 61 (YE/RD) Pin 1, circuit 63 (RD) Pin 9, circuit 63 (RD) Pin 3, circuit 58 (WH) Pin 11, circuit 58 (WH)
  • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms?
Yes
GO to D4 .

No
REPAIR the circuit(s) in question. TEST the system for normal operation. D4 CHECK FOR CORRECT WIPER MOTOR OPERATION
  • Disconnect all wiper motor connectors.
  • Check for:
    • corrosion.
    • pushed-out pins.
  • Connect all wiper motor connectors and make sure they seat correctly.
  • Operate the system and verify the concern is still present.
  • Is the concern still present?
Yes
GO to D5 .

No
The system is operating correctly at this time. Concern may have been caused by a loose or corroded connector. TEST the system for normal operation. D5 CHECK THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR
  • Key in OFF position.
  • Disconnect: Windshield Wiper Motor C125.
  • Carry out the windshield wiper motor component test as outlined in this section.
  • Did the windshield wiper motor pass the component test?
Yes
The system is operating correctly at this time. Concern may have been caused by incorrect binding pivot arm adjustment. REFER to Wiper Blade and Pivot Arm Adjustment in this section. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
INSTALL a new windshield wiper motor. REFER to Windshield Wiper Motor in this section.

Check for a loose fuse or loose wiring to the wiper. Also check for tight ground connection at the motor. The 'park' switch which completes each cycle may be intermittent. It might be a worn switch at the steering wheel.

2006 kia wipper works but stops in the middle of the windshield


It sounds like the the circuit board has gone bad and does not know where the base is any more so it will stop at the middle or the windshield. Auto Zone should have a new board if it's replaceable like the GM products. Good luck and hope this helps, In the mean time you can always turn your wipers on and pull the fuse out when it's at the down position so it's not up.
