Right now disconnect the battery terminals. Then check the wiper switch on the steering console where it has shorted making the wiper ON at all times. If the switch itself has shorted then just change the switch.....................sodeep

I replaced the Power fuse/relay located under the steering wheel dash. Its a gray canister and only costs $3.00. That seemed to repair the windshield wiper and powerlockes and powerseat. The resone that the ruse/relay went out in the first place was because the power seat switches were touching the frame of the chair. All i did to fix that was to use electrical tape on the frame and around the switch assembly.

The windshield wipers will not turn off until motor is turned off


It sounds like a short in the wiper switch. You might try operating the switch a bunch of times to see if it clears. Apart from that, if you aren't comfortable digging into the steering column (which can be dangerous), pull the fuse for the wipers until you can get it to a mechanic.

The windshield wiper switch on my 2001 lumina needs to be replaced and I am thinking of doing it myself. How hard is it to do this? Is it true that I would need to take the steering wheel off?


No , the steering wheel doesn't need to be pulled off . The wiper switch just pulls out of the steering column .

Verify that the lever (2) is in the center of the OFF position.
Disconnect the electrical connection (3) behind the lever (2).
Remove the switch lever (2) by pulling straightly outward on the lever .

I need to clean my windshield some times well driving and I don't know where the button is located at to spray the windshield washer fluid.


you have two levers on the steering column, one for the lights and the dipper and the other to run the windshield wipers and also if you pull this up, it will pump up some windshield washing fluid. On a dry windshield first pull it up and release three or four times and then run the wiper blades and not on a dry glass as it will leave scratches.

Windshield wipers don't work


Ok, this is a steering column issue. The wiring needs to be replaced. Shouldn't cost much at all. also, the external switch may have issues as well but, i suggest you re wire your steering column to fix this problem.

Windshield wipers


The fuse panel is under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. Lift the handle to unlatch the panel and pull it down. The windshield wiper/washer system uses a circuit breaker in position #2 in the fuse panel. If your washer is working the circuit breaker is OK.
