Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

1 Answer

Intermittent windshield wipers

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.

2003 Chevy Cavalier - Driver side wiper doesn't work


Likely broke the nylon bushing cap on the left side wiper transmission assembly. Best as I can tell, the cap is not replaceable so replacement of the assembly is required. These are available new AC Delco p/n 19120840 about $75, or on ebay used for about $35. ACDelco 19120840 Windshield Washer Transmission Kit. Goold luck, mine's broke too!

I an '03 Chevy Venture van whose windshield wipers won't go down.


Your windshield arm is in need of repositioning. Take off the cap on the windshield arm and loosen the nut under the cap. Reposition the arm so that it faces 180 degrees flat to the passenger side of the car. Tighten the nut. This should solve the problem you've described.

THe wind doesn't just push the power arm off, it must be broken and will need be replaced, You need to check if the actuall bracket that holds the arm is broken as well. It has teeth on it which when the arm is put on it lock in place with a clip

Intermittent windshield wipers


If it's not the switch, it's the electronic board in the wiper motor. If it's you can pick the board up at The Auto Zone less then at the dealer and they can help you determine if it is the board. Good luck
