It is likely the wiper module that is under the dash.

99 f350 super duty, wipers would only come on sometimes. I changed wiper motor now they still don't work


The generic electronic module (GEM) responds to the windshield wiper control commands by interpreting inputs from the steering column multi-function switch. The speed dependent wipers will compensate for the extra moisture that accumulates on the windshield at higher speeds, except when the multi-function switch is in the INT 1 position. At higher speeds, the speed dependent feature shortens the delay between wipes when using the variable interval wipers. Delays will automatically adjust at speeds between 16 and 105 km/h (10 and 65 mph).
Testing should be done before replacing any parts . And if you don't know about (GEM) Control module controlled system's your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . The first place to start trouble shooting these systems is with a scan tool that can read GEM module codes .

The windshield wipers on my 2001 Chevy Venture wont work in the "delay" positions...could this be a fuse/relay problem?


Most likely a little circuit board that controls the wiper delay, or the wiper switch itself has gone bad and has an intermittent break.

How do I fix the speed of my windshield wipers, they only work on high speed and I have replaced the windshield wiper motor and that did not help?


In that year they used a wiper control module and the switch to control speeds and delay interval. The part is obsolete at the ford dealer and you may have to resort to salvage yard for part.

What would cause the windshield wipers on my recently purchased Jeep Patriot Sport work on every speed except the high speed. High speed doesn't work at all.


The intermittent switch has a bad contact in it for the high speed, i would say, most likely will have to replace it.

I have 1998 dodge caravan. When you turn on the wipers, it keeps running and never shut off. Eventhough the wipers switch is working on slow and fast speed but when you turn the switch to off position, it...


There is a device made into the wiper motor itself, known as the wiper park switch. Its designed to turn off the wipers at a pre-determined position once you switch them off. The mfr recommends replacing the motor along with the intermittent timer (if equipped) at the same time when experiencing these problems.

Wipers only work on high speed. washer pump work too. I have no low speed or delay for wipers. Is this a switch problem or is there a relay modual under the hood that could be bad


Hello, this is a very common problem for Chevrolet. Your wiper motor control module is bad. It's mounted directly onto the wiper motor. On some models you can replace the "pulse board" inside the control module. If not you need to replace the entire wiper motor control module. It depends on your level of skill and parts availability.

2000 Chevy Malibu wiper delay and intermittent won't work.


I had this problem (wipers only work on high) with my 2002 Chevy Malibu and had to replace the 6 amp diode (22059733) on the wiper control board. It is connected to the back of the wiper motor and is held on by 3 torx screws.
Radio Shack has them for $2.75 6A, 50V Rectifier Diodes (4-Pack) Model:276-1661
