Question about 2011 Chevrolet HHR
When ever I am driving if I press the break the rear windshield wiper comes on. The switch is turned off and actually turning them on stops it for a few seconds. I have also noticed that if I turn them on to try and stop it, it also disengages cruise control.
Hi, the trouble seems like its in the rear of the vehicle, has any new bulbs been fitted recently , brake lights etc., worth a look in the rear light units, check for any bad earths or trapped wires, clean connections. good luck.

SOURCE: Windshield wipers will not stop
You can pull the fuse to the wiper for now till you get it repaired. The common problem is the solder where the wire harness connects to the wiper motor goes bad. You can go to Auto Zone and replace the circuit board to the wiper module or you can save some money if you have a solder gun and some solder. The clip on the circuit board where the wire harness connects to is where it goes bad. Next time your wiper gives you problem, give the wire harness a light tap with the end of a screw driver and see if it stops or starts up. There was a recall on the wiper circuit board a while back, not sure buy you may be lucky if the dealer still has the recall active and it will not coast you anything. Good luck and hope this help's, the other thing would be the wiper switch is worn and needs to be replaced.

check to make sure the wipers are at its right angle on the vehicle, loose the nuts and place both wipers close to the bottom of the wind screen

If you are sure the cruise and the wipers go out at the same time it may be a problem in your control switch but it would be highly unusual to be related to both.
Here is a possible solution to your wipers though.
There are 3 torx screws that hold a plastic panel in place on your wiper motor. Remove the power connector from your wiper motor and then the 3 screws. When the cover is off you will see a circuit board. Gently pull the circuit board straight out (there are some metal clips that will release).
When the board is out look carefully on the board in the area where the plug is. You may need a magnifying glass if your eyes are like mine ;) .
If you see cracks at the solder joint hit them with a solder gun.If you dont you may need a new board.
