Usualy it is not the motor which is faulty.The main rod where the vipers mounted use to rust together.The best thing to do is to take this parts off the car, dismantle it, clean it ,then assemble it with good quality grease.

2000 saturn sl1 sedan Wipers started acting up a

sounds to me like the wiper motor may need to be replaced, but before doing that see if there is a wiper relaay in the fuse box, it is a lot cheeper than a motor and it may be as simple as popping it out and putting a new one in. Also check the wiper linkage, it too could just be stripped. Hope this helps. Stay out of the rain. Hope this helps.

Wipers on my 1994 Saturn SL1 (SOHC) sedan start fine, but then won't turn off. Is it more likely the motor or the switch? Is there something else to be looking at?

the wiper motor assembly has a park sensor, and if this sensor fails, it will not let wipers park or shut off. ( replace wiper motor assembly).

No, prolly not the motor. If the wipers are working then the motor is doing its job. It would be the control portion-in the switch most likely.

1996 satrun sl1, wipers would go off somtimes, it

Listen for sound of motor, if there isn't any sound when attempting go to the fuse box and check to make sure that you have power to the motor. If you do you will need to take the shroud off under the windshield wipers which will take a 13mm wrench and some prying. You won't need to take the shroud all the way off, just use a 2 x4 to place between it. Then take a test light while the switch is in run position and the connector disconnected so you don't get your fingers caught; and test to see if there is any power coming to the motor. If there is, the motor is most likely at fault.

Wipers not working on 98 saturn sl1

sounds like a short in the wiper switch inside cab.
test volts at the wiper motor with switch on with test light if none, check wiring to motor for shorts or breaks.
replace switch inside cab if all else checks ok.

if light lights up at motor IE has 12 volts at motor,on all wiper settings, it may be bad motor.

2002 saturn lw200--wiper blades dont park at bottom of windshied

You need to replace the crank arm on the motor and either replace the bracket under it or bend the tab back up on the bracket so the crank arm can contact it so the wipers stop in the right place.

1997 Saturn SL wipers wont stop

well the good thing is you know the wipers work !! , I would start by seeing if the washer squirters work when using the Wiper lever . and I would also see if it worked on fast speed and slow speeds . If it does you may have a wiper switch that has gone bad ! ,
