I'm guessing that your question is more or less the same for your question about the wipers staying in the out wipe position when you turn them off?

2000 BUICK REGAL MY WIPER BLADES (DRIVER SIDE) WENT OFF THE WINDSHIELD THE OTHER NIGHT. WHEN I PUT IT BACK IT DID NOT WORK PROPERTY WHAT COULD BE WRONG DO I NEED TO TAKE IT TO A DEALER?


i`m not sure what you mean by it not working properly i assume that you mean it goes back and forth like the passenger side, but it doesn`t clean the window and you put the blade on the arm correctly then the wiper may be damaged and you will have to replace the wiper blade.check and compare the installation of the driver`s side to the passenger side wiper and correct the installation of the blade

2000 Buick Century, Spavinaw, OK, December 26, 2009, 13:21 driving home in snow storm and passenger side quit working , the drivers side works - cleared out all the snow and ice and still does not work...


Remove the wiper arm and check the serrated hub to see if it sheared a pin holding it to the shaft. If it is ok, then you may have a broken/loose part in the linkage. Good luck!

Wipers land in wrong position


I had the exact same problem with my 2000 buick century which i also bought used and after asking GM what it could possibly be they told me it was the whole wiper arm assembly which would be over $700 to replace. I decided to have a look myself and discovered that a small metal tab which makes the wipers park was bent and the mechanism was not engaging after turning the wipers off. i simply bent the tab back carefully and they parked again, saving me hundreds and it took about 15 minutes.

Open the hood and look where the wiper arms attach to the spindle. remove the caps covering the nuts, then remove the nuts. the hardest part here is most likely going to be getting those arms off. then remove the plastic grille under the right wiper arm (driver's side).

When you can get at the motor assembly, turn the wipers on and off and watch how it assembly operates and see if you can find the tab. This is the best picture i could find with google.

Once i found the tab i took a large flat head screwdriver and tapped it gently with a hammer to bend the tab back. you can tell when you turn the wipers on and off that they park properly. When it came time to put the wiper arms back onto the spindles i set them where they would be when turned off (resting in the plastic cradle at the lowest position).

I hope this was helpful. i know it was for me.

Buick century 2000 wipers stay upright when turned off otherwise works fine


I found the following description on the web, this covers a bunch of the questions I was going to ask...

I own a 2000 Silo and wondered the same thing and do see some GM vans with this problem.

When I bought mine I also bought the Haynes Repair manual (1997 thru 2001 all models GM) #38036 to learn how to fix this and a LOT of other components in/on the van.

For $20 it's worth it.

To answer your question: If the wipers stop at the position they're in when the switch is turned off (Fail to park), disconnect the multi-function switch electrical connector. (This is located under the dash next to the firewall and steering column)

If the wipers now park, replace the multi-function switch. If the wipers still do NOT park, check the wiring from the wiper motor to the switch for a short circuit. If the circuits are good, replace the wiper motor.

Note: There are other adjustments needed for proper operation than just bolting and new motor on.

You can have a look at this manual at any automotive parts supply store.
