Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
I have a 2003 Chevy Cavalier. When the temperature gets down in the 30's or less my windshield wipers behave erratically. If I use the delay function the wipers move in a jerky fashion and if I use the "mist" (not wash) function they behave the same. Also, when it does this they won't turn off when I turn the switch to the off position unless I do so a few times. They work fine if I use either of the continuous speeds (no delay). Could this be the switch or possibly something else causing the problem? I have a 2000 Grand Am and in the winter the delay wipers drag at the bottom of the windshield. In the summer they work fine. Also, sometimes when I turn them on to just do one swipe, they keep running for a bit before they shut off.
It sounds like the circuit board to the wiper module is cracked or has bad connection. There was a recall a few years back on certain GM model for this. I know you can get one at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instruction to replacing it.
Most of the time, the problem is the connection at the solder joint. Its a easy fix if you have a soldering gun and solder, just solder the break in the board or replace it.
Good luck and hope this helps.
