    This is a follow up on the wiper issue. I finally went to my mechanic, and it turned out to be a broken multyfunction switch on the steering column.

    Thanks for all the input.

Intermittent wipers: Inside the wiper motor (of most cars) there is a diode or diodes. They burn out or they break. If you replace the diodes the intermittent wipers will work again. If you cannot replace the diodes, replace the wiper motor completely (used or new)

Wiper/washer problems? Here are some more common problems.

  • Motor:
The wiper motor is commonly replaced and was often not the problem. Don't replace the motor yet. maybe it's not the motor. It could be a fuse or something at the wiper switch. The wiper motor has two windings, fast and slow. The wiper switch sends a ground signal to each motor winding. More often, there are problems with the relay, or at the wiper switch, or in the cable to the motor.
  • Windshield Washer:
Don't be too quick to replace the washer pump. The problem is often just a clog in the sprayer heads. You can clean out the sprayer holes with a needle, some have two holes, so look closely. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Rear wiper motor not working

most likely the wiper motor is bad the second wire sould be a ground if you set meter to ohms you sould be able to get a low resistance to any good ground on the vehicle if the hot wire is hot any time key is on the bcm is controling the ground to operate moter and you should have a steady continuity on the ground side with switch on the fast postion an it will read on and off in the intermitant postion if both wires test good motor is bad when you replace motor let it cycle and shut it off before installing the arm on it

Remove the wiper arm. Lift the hatch up. Remove all related trim around the hatch. Unbolt the wiper motor, and install in reverse order.

SOURCE: Wipers do not work properly in delay mode

I hate to sound dumb, but have you replaced the multi function switch also? Do your wipers only work when you press the wash button?The Multi function switch is the actual wiper/bright control/turn signal switch. They go bad often in these models, I have a 96 town and country (108,000 miles and still love it) and have had the same problem.I have also heard of taking the wiper motor apart and cleaning the contacts (which I did, to no avail). I first started with the multi function switch, went on to the wiper motor and I cleaned (scraped) every electrical contact that has to do with the wiper, I pulled the BCM and checked for any cold solder joints, and I am currently waiting for my ordered new BCM and I hope that is the problem.

1981 corvette wiper delay


Sounds like the delayed wipers are not working but the regular wipers are working. If this is true check the delayed wiper board in the wiper motor it is probably shorted out.

The windshield wipers on my 2001 Chevy Venture wont work in the "delay" positions...could this be a fuse/relay problem?


Most likely a little circuit board that controls the wiper delay, or the wiper switch itself has gone bad and has an intermittent break.

Winshield wiper delay intermitent module making noises


The wiper delay is in the steering column. It's a small box about 2 x 2 inches with a wiring harness attached. With the testing procedures I found below, you should be able to figure it out. I found wiper delays on eBay for around $10 to $20. Good luck.

WINDSHIELD WIPERS CHEROKEE, COMANCHE & WAGONEER 1. POWER INPUT Remove circuit breaker. Test battery side of circuit breaker. If battery voltage is not present, repair open to splice. Test across circuit breaker terminals. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, replace circuit breaker. 2. GROUND Connector A unplugged. Test terminal G. Tester reading should be zero (0) ohms. If not, repair open to ground. 3. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Ignition switch in ACCY. Remove delay module and plug connectors together from the module. If wiper operate in LO and HI speed modes and mist (washer) is working, if wipers and mist operate, replace intermittent module. If not go to step 4. 4. WIPER/WASHER SWITCH Ignition in RUN, wiper switch position as indicated, back probe switch side of connector A for standard, connector B for intermittent: Test connector terminal E-wiper switch in LO and mist/intermittent. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. test connector terminal C-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is not present, replace switch. Test connector terminal F-wiper switch to OFF. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero (0), system is working fine. If this does not occur, replace switch. 5. INTERMITTENT WIPERS Connector B unplug. Test across terminal A and D while rotating switch from minimum to maximum delay. If tester reading is not between 0-500 ohms, replace switch. Test across terminal A and G while rotating switch from minimum delay to maximum delay. If tester reading is between 0 and 500 ohms, replace wiper module. If not replace switch. 6. WIPER MOTOR Ignition in ACCY, wiper switch position as indicated, probe connector D. Test connector terminal 1. If resistance is no zero (0) ohms,repair open to ground. Test connector terminal 4-wiper switch in any position. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. if is not repair open from fuse panel. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in LO. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 2-wiper switch in HI. If battery voltage is present, replace motor. If not , repair open from wiper switch. Test connector terminal 5-wiper switch OFF with voltmeter connected. If battery voltage is present until wipers stop and then voltage drops to zero, system is OK, replace motor. If not, repair open from wiper switch.

Windsheild wipers delay wont work properly. turn them on and the wiper just keep going at normal speed with no delay. turn them off and the keep running then stop in the middle of windshield.


The wiper module is probably bad.It is located on the wiper motor many times you can wiggle the wires going to the module and some function is restored temporarily but most likely the module willneed replaced.
