My windsheild wipers stop in the up position on the delay setting but park all the way down when turned off. How do I fix this


You will need to diagnose this with a multi meter....on dark green terminal d at the wiper pulse board, with the wipers on any delay position, you should be reading .0005 Amps and 12 Volts and at the same time on the delay position one click below low(the fastest delay speed) you should be reading .0003Amps and 12V on terminal E gray wire, The purple wire (terminal C) should have 12V on high speed only. The yellow wire (terminal B) should have 12V when the key is on and the black wire (terminal A) should always be grounded....check all of that and we should be able to find your problem.
The Amperage should change on terminal E (the gray wire) with each position on the switch but the change will be very small. i.e. the first speed (longest delay) will read .000017 A, the second setting .00004 A and so on. Check that and let me know...(by the way, amps are checked in series with the connector so unplug it, place one probe in the connector and the other in the motor plug terminal. )

How do I fix wipers that are stuck in the up position when they are shut off


this could be a problem in the wiper motor controls on the wiper. However before going there I would lift the wiper arms off the screen and allow the wipers to work normally and see where they actually park. Having determined where they park I would then remove the wiper arms and relocate to the parked position. Still with the arms off the screen cycle the wiper and see if they stop where they should. If so place the wipers back on the screen
If all that fails then replace the wiper motor.

Olds Silhouette Passenger Side wiper not working


Your wipers have a transmission of its own. It is located between the wiper motor and the wiper arms. the linkage to the right wiper arm has fallen off. More than likely you will need to replace the transmission. If the wiper motor is original, replace it at the same time. Sometimes you can buy the two together. Any other questions, feel free to write back, good luck.

In delay cycle wiper hesitates


Hi,
The hesitation of the wipers in delay cycle is normal. You can twist the nob on the end of the arm to speed up or slow down the hesitation.
If you are driving in a light mist and the wipers ran at normal speed most of the time the would be wiping a dry windshield. Chattering and bouncing. With the delay set at the right speed the wipers only go on every so often, No dry chattering. In a full rain just twist the knob past the delay cycle to get low or high speed from the wipers.
Hope this helped you.

Wipers stay in the up postition


This sounds like the intermitten switch.Not so sure where this is located on this model. Have you ever noticed a faint clicking when your wipers are on delay?If so that is where this switch is.Usually on the passenger side behind the dash
