Question about 1994 Chevrolet Lumina APV

1 Answer

Wipers do not work Sometimes

Hi,
I own a 1994 Chevy Lumina APV van. Sometimes the wipers do work. Upon firing up the engine, if the wipers come on, they keep working when activated. At times, if I turn off the engine and re-start, the wipers will not work. Any reason why and if there an easy fix ?

Thanks,
Dhiresh

    Thanks a ton ! #1 appears to be the likely cause. I will try and get a motor and have it replaced. As you mentioned, I hope it is an easy job to replace. Grateful for your quick response !

Hello, This is usually one of two problems.

1. The wiper motor has gotten weak or a dead spot in the motor windings. this would cause it to not start depending on where the motor stopped last. The motor is usually a easy change.

2. The other things it could be is you wiper switch has a bad connection or just in need of replacement. This could be a harder job depending on how much of the column you need to take apart to get the lever switch out.

I would lean toward number 1 its usually the more common problem. I hope my answer at least gets you in the right direction. I hope you have a great weekend:>)

Yes but these vans have a problem with the circuit board on the windshield wiper motor developing loose solder connections. Some sell these boards at Ebay. If your wipers only work on high speed, the board is the problem.

Replace the wiper control board. You may also need to replace the wiper motor with it. While your working on the wiper system, make sure to grease the joints in the wiper arms uner the hood.
