Question about 1998 Saturn SL

1 Answer

The wipers stopped working on my car - both at the same time so I think it was the switch and not the motor. I want ot run a new switch and just put power on the motor to make it run, I don't need intermittent speeds or anything - just on or off. but there are several different color wires going up there - which one do I put power on?

Odds are it is the motor, which runs both wipers at once. They are not fun to replace on the S-Series, since you need to remove the cowl AND dashboard cover to R/R the unit.

Wiper not working


Sounds like you damaged the gear drive that operates the wiper arms, time for new wiper motor assembly is my guess. Don't use the wipers to brush off snow, very bad idea, the drive gears are plastic and on this old dog very brittle from age.

I have a 2012 Chevy Malibu and my windshield wipers just stopped working. When I turn on the switch I can hear the motor going; but the arms won't move . Please help


sounds like the linkage came unhooked under the hood. Sometimes you can just pop it back on other times if its broke you will have to install a new linkage.

Wipers stopped working, not a fuse


Your wiper motor or wiper transmission may be bad. If you can hear the wiper motor running, but the wipers don't move, your wiper transmission is bad. If you can't hear the wiioper motor, and you're sure all fuses are good and all contacts are solid, your wiper motor is toast.

The wind sheild wipers decided to turn on permenently. when the car is on the wipers are on. the normal on off switch does all funtions normally except turn them off. The dealer says we need a new wiper...


At the wiper motor there is a 'park' switch. This is to make the wipers stop in the proper position. This same motor has been used for years, so check at a wrecker for the parts. ok

When i turn my wipers off they stop in an upright position the wipers work but when off they wont go to home position


There is a piece in the motor that tells them to go home - so try this
take the entire wiper blade off the car - turn on the motor - and then shut it off - now
put the entire units back on where they should stop
please let me know if this fixes your problem.

Rear wiper stopped working


my 2004 expedition had same problem, if you take apart the shaft that goes thru the glass it will be full of dirt, clean ,lubricate and reinstall, you may have to replace the O-ring on the shaft. a 20 minute job, very easy fix
