If your blades are "skipping" or seem to be "sticking" to the windshield they may simply just need to be replaced. The rubber gets stiff with use and from chemicals and will no longer be pliable enough to slide across the windshield. If you check them and they are cracked or stiff, replace them. The blade cartridge can also have loose or cracked parts caused by weather, usually where it assembles to your wiper arm. Your vehicle can use multiple design types, the easiest to install and remove is the Shepards Hook.
However, if you find nothing wrong with the blades, check the underside of the wiper arm and you will see a spring. Check the tension of the spring with your finger. If it is relatively easy to pull out then it is too worn and won't provide enough pressure on your wiper arm. Replace it.

Wipers will not turn on 2006 colorado


There are two relay's in the under hood fuse / relay box . Wiper relay an wiper relay 2 . Maybe one is bad . also check fuse #14 25 amp. Wiper fuse.Plus the BCM - body control module has a hand in making the wipers work . Are you familiar with automotive electronic control modules ?
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Body control module (BCM)
• Wiper micro relay
• Wiper 2 relay
• Wiper diode
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield washer pump
• Windshield washer nozzles
• Windshield washer solvent container
• Windshield wiper arm and blade assemblies
• Windshield wiper transmission
• WIP/WASH 10A fuse
• WIPER 25A fuse

Wiper/Washer System Description
The body control module (BCM) controls wiper motor low speed operation. The washer pump and high speed operation are controlled directly by the wiper/washer switch. The windshield wiper/washer switch supplies voltage on the signal circuits to the BCM for windshield wiper/washer operation. When WASH, MIST, DELAY, LOW, or HIGH is detected, the BCM energizes the wiper micro relay by suppling voltage to the relay coil. This allows battery voltage from the WIPER fuse to flow through the relay switched input then through the contacts and out the relay switched output to the wiper 2 relay switch contacts. Since the wiper 2 relay switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.

Do you have any speed !

Why is my windshield wipers running in the off position, it's like they are running in the intermittent position, but it's in the off position.


When the windshield wiper / washer switch is turned to the OFF position while the wiper motor is somewhere in mid-cycle, the wiper motor module will continue to operate the wiper motor until the wipers reach the park position. If the ignition is turned off while the wipers are in mid-cycle, the wipers will stop immediately where they are. The wipers will park the next time the ignition is cycled to the ON position.

When driving at highway speeds & there is a cross wind with rainy conditions; the wipers vibrate which creats a noise(loud noise, can not hear the radio or other ocupants talking).


Try, to find the type of wiper arms that have the wind deflector
built on it. The theory is the deflector is set at an angle that
the wind puts pressure on the wiper to push the blade to the
windshield??

OR the wiper arm hold down spring is just worn out
