You can not just simply check for power at the module on the wiper motor The rear wiper motor control circuit is supplied a battery positive reference voltage by the rear wiper motor module and is pulse width modulated to ground by the ( LGM) lift gate module . you need a lab scope to check (PWM) and a scan tool . listen to some of this other guy's and you'll be shorting something out !

    The rear window wiper/washer switch is an input to the BCM. The requested rear wiper mode is sent to the liftgate control module (LGM) by the BCM as a message on the serial data circuit, and the rear window wiper motor is controlled by the LGM. The switch power circuit to the rear wiper/washer switch is a 12-volt reference supplied by the BCM during ignition on, accessory or RAP power modes. The rear wiper/washer switch is a series of resistors and the switch position is determined by the voltage of the rear wiper/washer switch signal circuit to the BCM. The rear wiper/washer switch has continuity at all times and the BCM expects a rear wiper/washer switch signal voltage in all switch positions including OFF. The rear wiper motor is supplied battery positive voltage and ground. The LGM controls rear wiper motor operation through the rear wiper motor control circuit. The rear wiper motor control circuit is supplied a battery positive reference voltage by the rear wiper motor module and is pulse width modulated to ground by the LGM. The duty cycle of the pulse width modulation determines the rear wiper motor operating mode. The liftglass and liftgate ajar switches are inputs to the LGM and must be in an inactive state in order for rear wiper washer system operation to be enabled. When an ajar switch is active the LGM suspends wiper motor operation directly and sends the ajar switch status messages over the serial data circuit enabling the BCM to suspend washer pump operation. The rear window washer pump is controlled by the BCM through the rear washer relay. Battery positive voltage is supplied to the coil and switch sides of the rear washer relay. When the rear window wash request is active the BCM energizes the relay by grounding the relay coil through the rear washer relay control circuit. When the relay is energized battery positive voltage to the relay switch is supplied to the washer pump control circuit.

Put power to the motor and see if it hums. Have somebody sit inside and turn key and turn power on to the switch on rear wiper And see if it turns or on the car battery. Power and negative, lets find out if it is the motor or not.

    The fuse is different depends on the body options.In the fuse box under the back seat, One is body style, the wiper is fused under the LGM #2 Fuse 3 and on the other body style there is a circuit breaker 9 labeled RR WIPER. You would have to pull the panel off the back to check for power and ground to the wiper motor. I can tell you what wires to check for back there if you want to do the tests. I do see a lot of the wire melt in the connections to the rear hatch. If you open the rear hatch and find the boot that has the wires going through it that runs up in the head liner area. If you pull that boot loose from the body side and pill the wire back until you find the connector and unplug the connector and look for any wires melted in and around the connector. look for spread terminals also in that connector Read more:

should be on the passenger side under the dash. Remove the lower dash panel and look up under the dash. you will see the blower motor and then to the left a little you will see a plug attached to a relay/resistor switch. It is held on by two screws. The Envoy is the Trailblazers sister so you may have the same issue I had. Seems like the ground is not sufficient enough causing the ground wire to get hot melting the plugs together. I had a very hard time getting them apart but did. Purchased a new relay/resistor switch and repaired the wiring myself. GM wants $100.00 bucks for the plug. Hopefully you don't have a G/F or wife like mine that thought kicking the fan speed control switch would make it work. I had to also replace that due to her breaking the switch.

The rear defroster and wiper is not working on my 2007 gmc Envoy. Is there a way to test the lif gate module and how do I get to it?

May not be the module, or fuse. ALWAYS check the ground on this stuff first thing. If need be, take a piece of wire and hod the bare ends on the ground connection and other end on a clear spot on the bumper and have someone push the button to turn on the wiper. A good spot would be where the wiper comes thru the door to hold the wire on and other end on bumper to test ground fault.

2004 gmc envoy window won't go up rear wiper obstruction

I know this question is old, but I am responding so others with the same problem can see. I wired the Rear Window Motor Park Signal wire and the Rear Window Motor Speed Signal wire together and it completely bypassed the rear wiper motor. Now the window goes up and down. This doesn't fix the rear wiper motor, but you will be able to have access to it now that the window is out of the way

02 liberty rear wiper dose not work plugin has power changed wiper motor still doses work

There is a nut under the black plastic bezel that needs to be removed. Here is the complete procedure for you to look at. Its possible that your arm isn't adjust at wiper motor...

- Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
- Remove the rear wiper arm from the rear wiper motor output shaft. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL / REAR WIPERS / WASHERS/REAR WIPER ARM - REMOVAL).
- Using a small thin-bladed tool, gently pry at the notch in the base of the rear wiper motor output shaft bezel to unsnap the nut cover from the bezel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL). Be certain to take proper precautions to protect the outer tailgate panel and its paint finish from damage during this procedure.
- Remove the nut that secures the rear wiper motor output shaft to the outer swing gate panel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Remove the bezel and gasket from the rear wiper motor output shaft.
- Remove the trim panel from the tailgate inner panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/SWING GATE/TRIM PANEL - REMOVAL).
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the flip-up glass ajar switch from the flip-up glass latch connector receptacle.
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the rear wiper motor from the motor connector receptacle (REAR WIPER MOTOR REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Loosen the two screws that secure the rear wiper motor mounting bracket to the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Slide the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket forward far enough to disengage the two mounting screws from the keyed slots in the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Remove the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket from the tailgate as a unit.


4 - NUT

What you will need to do is to remove the small plastic cap on the wiper arm by prying it off with a screw driver. Then remove the nut that holds the arm onto the shaft. Then get yourself a battery cable puller (from auto parts store) and pull the arm off of the shaft..

2000 Honda Odyssey rear wiper motor replacement

You are probably correct in thinking its the wiper motor. You can do this but you will need to remove all the interior trim from the rear hatch first. Get a trim clip removal tool at a parts will work much better than just a flat blade screwdriver. You'll have to remove the trim panels starting in order from the top of the door, then the left rear window side trim, then right rear window side trim, then the grab handle, and finally the main rear hatch trim panel. Once inside, removing and replacing the rear wiper motor is easy. You'll start by lifting the cover on the wiper arm retention nut. Remove this nut to get the wiper arm off, then remove the nut under neath which is the motor shaft mounting nut. Now, back inside to remove the other 3 motor mounting bolts. Don't forget to disconnect the connector for the motor wires. Reverse steps to replace.
