You will have to open the steering colum and pull the cover off and get a star head screw driver disconnect the wiring that attaches to it...If you have tilt steering lower the tilt and go from there...There are aprox four screws that hold the covers in place.

1999 chevy venture, windsheild wipers only work on high , and does not go into park position unless you are close to park position


I would be looking at replacing the wiper motor....the wiper switch is just that, a switch to tell the wiper motor what to do.....most of the wiring is housed internal of the wiper motor such as the park circuit and the speeds........osunds like an internal fault.....replacement would be advised

Windsheild wiper does not remain in contact for the full stroke.The blade actually raises off the windsheild.1995 volvo wagon. three sets of blades, two sets replaced by mechanics.


Try this:

With ignition on, turn on wiper switch. When wiper arm gets to point where blade does not touch screen, turn off ignition switch so that wipers do not return to park position. It may take a few goes to stop arm in the right position so repeat process until it is in the best position.

Check main wiper arm and bend slightly towards windscreen so that blade touches screen and there is some spring pressure from the arm to keep blade on screen. Also check that there is no interference between main arm and the section which supports the rubber blade. If you get blade chatter as the arm sweeps, twist the end of the main arm slightly in the opposite direction to the movement that produces the chatter. It may take a bit of trial and error to get it all right.

Windsheild wippers stay on


There are 4 positions to the wiper switch (OFF, AUTO, LOW, HIGH). If the wipers stay on even in the OFF position, then the self-park is not working and you probably have to replace the motor.

Windsheild wipers on a 2003 GMC Savana van


hi the contacts in the switch would appear to be faulty if you can get to the switch try spraying the switch with wd40 or simular as if you can spray the contacts it may clean them if you want abit more positive diagnostic while wipers are working disconnect the wires from the switch when they won,t turn off if they continue to work check out the relay yates210456

Wipers


You have two problems. The first is the wipers turn off and stay in the upright position and do not close. The motor is fine. There is a steal 'close' tab that has been bent out of position. You just need to push the steal tab back into position. You can use a chisel or screwdriver to pound it back into the 90 degree position.

The windsheild washer motor probably needs to be replaced
