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.

Wiper problems on a saturn SL1


If the driver's side is working OK then most likely your problem lies with the attachment of the passenger side arm to the transmission. The transmission is the linkage between the wiper motor and the wiper arms. Often the female or socket part of the arm has become stripped due to turning the wipers on whilst they are ice/snow stuck to the windshield. Remove the cap at the base of the arm, often this is already gone. Get a socket wrench and remove the nut which is exposed. Now gently pry the entire arm up and away from the splined stub sticking out, maybe some liquid wrench or WD40 could help here. Do NOT pry against the windshield. Take your removed wiper arm to a salvage or junk yard and have them sell you another just like it but making sure the inside of the stub socket is not already stripped smooth too. Put it on in the reverse order, firmly tightening the nut.

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.

My 98 saturn SL1 wipers do not operate evenly and drivers side may run off the windshield. what is wrong?


At the base of the wiper there is a nut under the decorative cover that holds the wiper on. You can remove this nut and pull the wiper, realign it and replace the nut. With a few tries even a novice can get them where they belong.

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 ! ,
