I've got a 1992 GMC Sierra and the windshield wipers work sometimes and sometimes not at all. I can tap the motor and they start to work. Sometimes when on runs w switch off. Is that a motor problem?

SOURCE: Windshield wiper and turn signals don't work.

I have seen this problem several times and it was the assembly under the steering wheel at the top of the steering column. There are many electrical connections in there for turn signals, wipers, horn, headlight dimmer, etc. The electrical contacts could be dirty and not conducting current or they could be misalligned or broken or just plain worn out.

If you're up to it, take steering wheel off and take a look. If there is an airbag, and you've never removed one of those, I wouldn't even start -- take it back to the shop and tell them what you suspect the problem to be.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 dodge shadow.but the windshield wipers isn't working.I checked the motor is well,the terminal voltage is 12V,how can I continu to repair the 1992 dodge shadow's windshield wipers?

You posting is slightly confusing but I gather your windshield wipers stopped working.
The repair method is as follows;
) Check the fuse.
) Check the wiper motor. Turn the wipers on and listen for the hum of the motor.

If you hear the hum then the linkage has probably come loose. You will have to take the covers off
to get to the linkage for the wiper. You can either repair the parts, get salvage yard parts or replace with new part$.

If you do not hear the motor hum then you should verify electricity is getting to the motor. A simple
voltmeter can be used. If the motor is bad you can replace it. Call some auto supply stores for after-market motors or call salvage yards for parts.

It sounds like the wiper motor has a bad gear. Replace the motor and it should solve your problem.

Windshield Wiper


Unfortunately, theae are common problems. There is more than likely a bad circuit board. Most major auto part stores carry these.

The Windshield Wipers on my truck wont work. At first they would work sometimes and then sometimes they wouldn't but now they wont work at all. When i try to turn them on now all i get is a light whineing...


Check if there is power at the wiper plug, make sure the wiper motor has a good ground, if both are present then bang on the motor if it starts working then change it. As for the fluid motor make sure that you can hear it come on when powered, if not see if you have power when pushed to spray, if you have power on demand change the motor.

1995 gmc sierra 1500 windshield wipers work on high sometimes works on regular or mist settings


It is the pulse module inside the wiper motor. It has bad solder joints were the wiring connector is soldered to the pused module board. You can either replace the module or just touch up the solder joints yourself.

Windshield wipers don't work sometimes


It could be the switch or the motor causing the windshield wipers to not work everytime.

Windshield wiper motor


under the plastic cowl that the windshield wipers are on top of. removal of the wipers is nessecary. then removal of the cowl is next. and underneath all that should be the motor.

OR sometimes it is mounted on the firewall in the engine bay on either side usually can't miss it.
