SOURCE: Winshield Wipers don't work

replace relays 30 & 32 in the engine compartment fuse box near the battery. they both control windshield wiper function. there are a group of six relays near the back of that panel..... looking at the group from the front it's the two relays on the left starting from the top one and going to the next one down.

Look under the Hood and Locate the Fuse Relay Box. There are Relays in this Box for these Lights. They might be Labeled ILLUMINATION, Not Sure But, They are in there. The Diagram of what is What should be Inside the Box Cover, If not, It is inside the Owners Manual. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Try pulling the fuse for the anti theft system and starting. If the car starts normally, then the problem is with the theft system. The theft system will reset itself after a period of time.

For starters, do you have brake lamps? The shift lockout is controlled by the brake switch. As far as the others, yes it could be the GEM (generic electronic module) some of these vehicles have water intrusion problems that leat into the fusebox and GEM which is located on the back of the fuse box. If you can look at the fuse box inside the vehicle and if you can see the back, look for corrosion which is a sign of water.

Wipers wont turn off... someone broke my on/off switch


Emily, the steering column cover at the top of the steering wheel has to come off. You or someone has to unscrew the screws inside the column cover and unplug the electrical connector. This will help stop the motor under the hood from operating. If you have to; look at the fuse box either under the dash beside the steering wheel or under the hood. There should be a wiper blade fuse to pull out as well. Hope this helps. If you want to send me picture messages on these locations to better help you, please do so. My business phone is 434-907-2104.

your dimmer switch is mounted on the left side of the column & ignition switch is mounted on top of the steering, you could have a short in this area, there is a rod that goes from the lever to the dimmer switch, look for bare wires, remove the trim below the column, remove the clip for the shifter indicator & remove the 2 bolts holding the column up, this will give better view of the switches & wires.

Low beams quit, high beams ok.


You have a separate fuse for the high beams and the low beams. Fuses are located in panel in driver's side of dash concealed when door is closed, or in the power distribution box under the hood on the driver's side. You have separate lamps for each (not likely since they both went out together).
The worst thing it could be, and it is very expensive for parts/labor (and you don't want to tackle this one yourself unless you are a good mechanic) is the column-mounted dimmer/cruise/wiper/washer/turn signal switch. The part alone is almost 200 bucks, and installing it requires dismantling the steering column inside the SUV.
Hope it's not that.

My dash lights all go out when i try and put the turn signal on. which arnt working either. car runs fine otherwise.


Your turn signal switch is multifunctioning (controls cuise, wipers, dimmer, etc.). Your dash lights are wired into the same circuit (when you turn your headlights on, the dash lights should come on). Try replacing the turn signal switch there at your steering column. Takes about 20 minutes to install and around $60.

CHEVY 1500 TRUCK HEADLIGHTS TURN OFF WHEN YOU TURN ON SWITCH


If you have replaced the switch, and it is still doing it it sounds like you definately have a short somewhere in your wiring. On the other hand if the dimmer is in the turn signal arm ( forward bright back dim ) the problem could also be there in the dimmer switch, such as a short being caused by that dimmer switch being faulty.Auto Zone and Discount Auto Parts both test a lot of your electrical problems for free, and/or may have some knowledge to more accurately pin point the problem. Not sure about Pep Boys or some of the other discount auto part chains.

Headlights


Everything relating to do with the wiring is in the steering column, if someone has cut the wires going into the column and taped them back together in order to pull the steering column out for service the wiring needs to be replaced. the good news is if that is your problem it will cost you no more that about 30 dollars to fix it, the bad news is you have to pull the column to replace it. I hope that shines some light on it for you.
