Check fuses. Replace the turn signal switch for the head lights. If the wiper fuse is good, Replace the turn signal switch first, then go after the wiper motor. Both run threw the turn signal switch.

Have you checked all of the fuses for power ?
The headlights have fuses in addition to the main headlight fuse.
Same thing with the washer pump.

Headlights and turn signals do not work. Wipers stay on.


I'm going to say you blew a major fuse or fuseable link wire you have not found yet.
The wipers need power from a battery source to stop, the headlights probably are on a battery circuit too. The turn signals would go thru the key switch but the hazard flashers would be also be direct battery.
You may need a wiring diagram (book) to find all of the fuses and circuits.

The wipers will not work in the daylight....when he starts the truck in the daylight the wipers will not come on.....at night when he is leaving work the wipers will work.....checked the fuses and replaced...


So what youre saying is the wipers work when the headlights are on
but the wipers dont work when the headlights are off?

I would suspect the turn signal switch is bad. I believe the switch on your S-10 controls
the wipers as well as switching from high beams to low beams. Since that switch is related
to the control of both headlights and wipers.

Could also be the headlight switch. The wiring harness from the turn signal switch plugs
into the headlights switch. I would replace the headlight switch first since you can get one
for around $25. Turn signal switch costs $150-$200. Maybe a little more or less for your vehicle.

2008 should be under warranty, take it back to dealer.

With all of the electronics on vehicles today, seems like these sort of system failures are becoming commonplace.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.
