These motors break all the time, and they are expensive to replace. Most people just unplug the motor that is affected, and loosen the wiper arm to reset it to a 'rest' position. After that it all looks normal

99 Suburban Windshield Wiper Issue.

It sounds to me as though both of the wipers have slipped. The operation of the wipers sounds fine except they do not park in the correct location. To fix this, start the wipers and then turn them off to ensure they think they are in the parked location. At the base of each wiper there is a small cover that can be easily removed with a small screwdriver. Underneath each cover you will see a nut. Loosen the nut somewhat and reposition each windshield wiper to the proper park location. Once done, tighten the nuts securely but do not over tighten, then reinstall the caps. Cycle your wipers on and off a few times to ensure the wipers park correctly. I have owned a lot of vehicles and ALL of my GM vehicles have had this problem.

Head lights, brake lights, parking lights, signal lights, windshield wipers do not work

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. or more before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 2009 f150 I hit a deer and about 3 weeks later my park lights quit working. All fuses and relays and bulbs are good.all other lights work,I don't know if the deer busting out the head light had...

Sounds like a bad connection in the park light circuit. The collision may have fractured a wire that supplies power or earth to the park lights. Check for a poor/loose Earth wire bolt inside the engine bay near the head lights an check for any obvious signs of any wires in the loom showing damage by chafing or kinking. Also check any of the plastic block connectors in the wiring loom for the park lights. Sometimes the metal spade connections are not secured properly within the plastic block and can be pushed back when the plastic blocks are joined together or can just work loose over time. Check the security of these connectors in the plastic blocks by gently pulling then pushing each wire in the connector block. There should be little or no movement. Any loose ones will be obvious if they pull out some distance. If you have a multimeter or test lamp you can check for power on the input to the globe sockets and interconnecting blocks or earth continuity.

How do i time my wiper blades after replacing wiper motor blades stay in vertical position when set on interrmitent

Remove the wiper arms from the drive posts. Turn on your wipers with the engine running and shut the wipers off -- this will put the wiper drive posts in the park position.

Reinstall the wiper arms so the blades are about an inch above the bottom of the windshield.

I have a 2002 Montana and the wiper blades end up in a vertical position when they are turned off. They otherwise work fine. They pause properly in the horizontal position when running in intermittent...

If the wipers end up in the vertical position and they are the HIDE type usually its the park mechanism mounted on top of the wiper motor that the linkage attaches to, there is a small spring loaded lever on the bottom of this device that wears out and fails to activate the PARK position proccess when the wipers are turned off. When the wipers turn off the motor reverses and the lever is meant to catch on a tab and compress the mechanism pulling the wipers to the park position. Only thing I know what to do is replace this mechanism, ($150. new 25. used)

2001 Pontiac montanaThe front wipers park in the up position

This is a common problem with Chevy Venture, Olds Silhouette, and  Pontiac Montana. The mechanical wiper drive and parking cam assembly, if it's not broken, needs adjustment. The spring loaded stop arm should engage the vertical tab on the assembly mounting plate when the wiper motor reverses. See pic.  9a7b0af.jpg
I will upload the instructions to fix this problem, if there is interest.

2002 chevy impala wipers not parking

Court, With the wiper switch off and the ignition switch in the "run" position, disconnect the wiring connector at the wiper motor. With a multimeter or test light, verify you have 12 volts on the yellow wire. Then check to make sure you have a good ground on the black wire.
If both of those check OK, the wiper motor has a logic board under the cover of the wiper motor, it is most likely bad.
Good luck, let me know.

Lights, wiper, meters and dash board lights not working

The body control module, BCM is responsible for the function of all of these, and if it has lost communication, or is not functioning, then none of them will work. Not to be discouraging, but this is not a problem to be tackled without a DRB II, a subscription to DealerConnect, and a Daimler Chrysler Platinum Certified technician.
