With all the snow and Ice we have had if you turned them on and didn't clear them first you could have damaged the wiper motor. It may have to be replaced.

SOURCE: buick century 2000 wipers

I found the following description on the web, this covers a bunch of the questions I was going to ask...

I own a 2000 Silo and wondered the same thing and do see some GM vans with this problem.

When I bought mine I also bought the Haynes Repair manual (1997 thru 2001 all models GM) #38036 to learn how to fix this and a LOT of other components in/on the van.

For $20 it's worth it.

To answer your question: If the wipers stop at the position they're in when the switch is turned off (Fail to park), disconnect the multi-function switch electrical connector. (This is located under the dash next to the firewall and steering column)

If the wipers now park, replace the multi-function switch. If the wipers still do NOT park, check the wiring from the wiper motor to the switch for a short circuit. If the circuits are good, replace the wiper motor.

Note: There are other adjustments needed for proper operation than just bolting and new motor on.

You can have a look at this manual at any automotive parts supply store.

You could also see if the bolts holding the wipers on came loose from the snow and ice. Pop the cover off, loosen and straighten the wipers where they should be and tighten.

i'm guessing that your question is more or less the same for your question about the wipers staying in the out wipe position when you turn them off?

i guess click HERE for the solution (although i'm sure you already know) :)

Well pop the two little black plastic top hats off of the wiper arm mounts and losen the nuts. Turn your wipers off and tighten them in the lower position.There should be visible mark on the widshield where the wipers have spent most of there time sitting.If you have them to low when you turn them on you will be able to tell by how high the go up on the windshield.Well hope this helped.

I'm actually having a couple of problems with my 2002 buick century. The first of which is whenever I am driving my car there is a high pitched spuealing noise coming what seems to be the front passenger...


Good Evening. First off I would like to give you a little advice on your passenger side windshield wiper. On your windshield wipers there is a nut at the base of the arm, try tightening that nut down (of course while your wipers are off) and that should make it work going off the description of your wiper problem. Your Antilock and trac off are lights that are tied into your antilock brake system and will both come on together. Your high pitched squeal could be a few things like brake pads, or a backing plate rubbing. Your hub assembly really won't make a squeal but would be a good reason for the anti lock light to be on. Your best bet is to have the antilock system scanned for codes to know exactly what is making the system to pass a code. Any other questions please feel free to ask. Hope this helps.

Passenger wiper quit working


motor only drives one arm to wipe. the passenger side arm might be disconnected. you have to reomve parts and visulally inspect. you might need a bolt or a washer, but should be an easy realignment fix.

There's a little rust making the wheel stick to the rotor. Just give it a kick to the tire and it'll break it loose.
