There was a recall for this issue. The problem is the circuit board would go bad right where the wire harness clips on to the boards causing a short. Best thing to do is go to the dealer and see if the recall is still covers your wiper logic board, but in the mean time. Pull the fuse to your wipers so there not on all the time. If it's not covered and your good with a solder gun, you can re-solder the clip back on the board or replace the logic board. You can pick it up at Auto Zone or any large auto parts store. Good luck and i believe it's still covered but the recall.

2003 cts cadillac/ window wipes start when they want .

The problem is you don't know how to use it. Try and flick it right back to get it out of the intermittent mode. Also when you turn the wipers on it will stay on unless you turn it off, it's like a light bulb..

Wipers will not turn off...

Do you turn them on by throwing a lever or by turning a dial?
It seems that the switch that controls the wipers may be stuck open.. (metal contacts not seperating)

03 cts cant shut off wipers or adjust speed

Take it to dealer unless you can replace the wiper switch assembly yourself, a sure test is using a circuit tester. also tighten the motor housing if the nuts are loose usually GM uses 3 nuts, other wise take it to the dealer, they have the Technical Service Bulletins on your car, the non-dealers may not have them or have no clue or plain give you a false statement that they give you like a you don't have a clue, if so time to walk out and not return.
