Non-Trouble Code Procedures

WARNING: TO AVOID PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH, ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, AIRBAG, SEAT BELT TENSIONER, IMPACT SENSOR, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. THIS IS THE ONLY SURE WAY TO DISABLE THE SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT.

If the wiper motor operates, but the wipers do not move on the windshield, replace the faulty wiper module. If the washer pump/motor operates, but no washer fluid is dispensed on the glass; or, if the wipers operate, but chatter, lift, or do not clear the glass, clean and inspect the wiper and washer system components as required.

The hard wired wiper and washer system circuits and components may be diagnosed and tested using conventional diagnostic tools and methods. Refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information includes wiring diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, details of wire harness routing and retention, connector pin-out information and location views for the various wire harness connectors, splices and grounds.

However, conventional diagnostic methods may not prove conclusive in the diagnosis of the ElectroMechanical Instrument Cluster (EMIC), the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM), the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus, or the electronic message inputs or outputs used to provide wiper and washer system service or many of the electronic features of the wiper and washer systems. The most reliable, efficient, and accurate means to diagnose the EMIC, the TIPM, the CAN data bus and the electronic message inputs and outputs for the wiper and washer system requires the use of a diagnostic scan tool.

SOURCE: windscreen wiper on Mercedes C200 not working

you should check the connection to the main board and the connections to the motor for the wipers. these sometimes become gunked up, so when you pull them apart to check them clean them with sand paper or something that can scrub them like a green scratch pad

Front wiper not working


Hi same thing happen to me years ago, seems like one side has striped the little teeth off and how I fixed it was make sure the wipers are turned off and take the nut off on the wiper that doesn't move and remove the wiper, Then replace it sitting the same angle as the good wiper and tighten the nut up slightly tighter than before... It should grip.. I hope this helps...

My wipers work when they want to don't always work when it's raining. Is there a recall on the windshield wiper motor for a 1997 Chevy Blazer?


I don't believe there is a recall but I've replaced a lot of the wiper control modules [glorified circuit board] on top of the wiper motor for similar problems. Something in the circuit board goes bad and causes the wipers to malfunction randomly. There are other things that can cause wipers not to work but I'd look there first

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.

Wiper speed control for a '97 Mercury Grand Marquis. What causes the wiper to work on high speed only?


Intermittent wiper control stopped working on my 1996 GM last spring. I ended up replacing the wiper motor ($100.00 part). Since I have found it on Amazon for $58 including shipping. It works fine now. Only bad part was all the "stuff" that has to come out (like dead leaves!) to get to the wiper motor. Also make sure you have your wipers in the down position when you replace the motor.

My windshield wipers quit working on my 2004 Chevy Silverado. They died rather abruptly, slowing down until they stopped on the low setting. I was able to use them on high for a few days and now they won't...


There was a recall on the control board to the wiper motor a few years ago, Check with the dealer and see if the recall is still active and if not you can fix it if you have a solder gun and some solder. The clip on the board where the wire harness clips on to go bad and needs to be re soldered. If you can not solder you can pick up the board from Auto Zone and the step by step instruction to replacing it. Good luck and hope this helps.

It sounds like the switch went out. I have seen a lot of GM products have this same problem.

Need wiring diagram


i dont think u need a wiring diagram. you should check your wiper motor circuit board first. on my 94 s10 the wipers either worked when they wanted to and now they dont work at all. just either replace the circuit board yourself ($19.95 on ebay) or replace the whole wiper motor ($60 on ebay) and your wipers should work. just give this a shot as its a good place to start. i myself am going to replace the wiper circuit board as its cheap, and really easy to access and replace. all you need is a screw driver. good luck. and no, im not a GM Technician. just owned my truck since day 1 and always try to check vehicle forums for answers first.
