SOURCE: Malibu wipers problems

I suspect a retainer came loose from the arm to the wiper transmission, you will need to get at the wiper transmission and reattach the art to the pivot.

SOURCE: windshield wipers turn on own their own and won

Try swapping the wiper relay with a similar one in the fuse box. If no help, the body computer may have a stuck high relay control output. Check for poor wiring grounds near the body computer and near the wiper motor. Check the wiper motor auto-park switch for looseness.

SOURCE: windshield wipers groan

1. It's hard to know what you mean by groan. Is there a problem with the wiper motor or is it just noise from the wipers riding over the new glass?
I hope the wiper mechanism was not damaged during installation of the new glass.

2. I will assume it's just the wipers on the glass. If that is the case you should first try:

a. Clean the glass with a strong glass cleaner and water and flush well.
Dry off with paper towel/ Do this a couple of times.

b. Carefully check that there is no damage to the wiper arms cause by the windscreen replacement people.

c. Replace the wiper rubbers with new inserts. Make sure you get the correct item for your vehicle.

3. If you are still getting the "groan" you will need to investigate problems with the wiper mechanism/motor. Your vehicle should still be under its new car warranty. However any damage caused by the windscreen people cannot be claimed on warranty of course.

Windshield wipers work on high only 03 malibue

Most likely the cause of this is because of the switch not operating properly. The wiper switch circuitry has 3 different diodes. One for high, one for low, and one between the 2 relays that run the motor. One relay turns the juice on and the other determines if it's high or low speed. On/off is relay 39, high/low is relay 40. You'll find them under the hood. Lift off the battery cover, then the fuse block cover. On the underside of the fuse cover is the location legend. The diode is #27. Check it for pass/no pass with a small light while unplugged from the circuit. Also try swapping the two relays with each other. This will determine if the problem is the switch.

The windshield wipers on my 1999 Chevy Malibu no longer work. It's very cold and snowy here. They made a jerky motion at first and now no longer work. Thank you.

I would say that the wiper motor arms have jumped off and you have to take the rill right under your windshield off and snap the wiper motor arm back on to the wiper motor and then put the grill back on there and then you are all set to use them again.
