2003 Pontiac Montana wipers not working how to fix


First you need a wiring diagram, free at http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Then you need a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test the circuit . Then if your not familiar with automotive electrical systems testing ,go on youtube an check out Electric Testing Techniques You Need to Know Also having a factory diagnostic trouble shooting chart would also be usefull . You could just start replacing parts , you mite get lucky . The wiper motor is a high fail part , so is the switch ..You could find the fuse is blown ! But fuse's don't usually blow without a reason . Short to ground , low resistance . ( high current flow) Also knowing how they work and what all is involved in making them work.
The Wiper/Washer System consists of the following components:
• Windshield wiper/washer switch
• Windshield wiper motor module
• Windshield wiper motor
• Windshield washer pump motor
• FRT/WPR/WSHR 25A fuse

Wiper/Washer System Operation
The windshield wiper motor module is part of the windshield wiper motor cover and controls wiper motor operation. The windshield wiper motor is a 2 speed motor and is operated at low speed in all modes except HIGH. The accessory voltage supply circuit to the windshield wiper motor assembly is used to operate the wiper motor in all of the low speed modes. The accessory voltage supply circuit to the windshield wiper/washer switch is used to supply the windshield wiper switch signal circuits and the wiper motor high speed circuit.
When the wiper/washer switch is in the LOW position voltage is supplied through a 24K ohm resistor within the switch to the windshield wiper switch signal 2 circuit, and accessory voltage is supplied to the windshield wiper switch signal 1 circuit. The reduced voltage from the wiper switch signal 2 circuit and accessory voltage from the wiper switch signal 1 circuit causes the wiper motor module to close the wiper motor accessory voltage supply circuit to the wiper motor low speed terminal.
Windshield wiper/washer system MIST operation is identical to LOW operation except that the MIST switch is a press and release type. When the wiper switch is moved to the MIST position and released, low speed wiper motor operation is started and will continue until 1 cycle is complete. If the wiper switch is moved to the MIST position and held, the windshield wiper motor will operate in the LOW mode until the switch is released.

Don't the wipers work in any mode ?

Windshield wipers don't shut off and washers don't work


So that wipers park properly, the wipers have 2 power sources. One is from the dash switch to turn the wipers no and off, but the second is the parking power, which is always supposed to be on. The parking power is supposed to be shut off by a rotating cam inside of the wiper motor housing itself. If you don't want to take it out and fix it, you could always just pull the parking wire to the wipers, and then try to manually park them by shutting off the wipers at exactly the right time.

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.

Both windshield wipers come on when making turns only shut back off after several minutes or turning off the engine. What could be the problem?


Replace the turn signal switch. This is the only thing that will operate the wipers and washer at the same time.

Why do my wipers only come on when I push the button for the wiper fluid?


Most newer cars have the module built into the wiper motor. They can go bad and run on any mode. Yours happens to be washer mode. I would replace the motor.

Rear wiper will not shut off


the motor in all wipers motors boxes.
has a switch inside, called the keep alive or auto cancel;.
its bad.
ive fixed many a switch inside, most shops throw the whole thing way.
for good reason, they dont want you back next week for same problem.
on old cars we try to fix things. direct.

to prove this. we use a voltmeter
at the 2 power pins, one goes to 0volts when you turn it off
the other stays hot. 12v. this is normal
if the motor fails to stop, the motor internal switch is bad.

the tests are here.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

under wipers chapter and wiring 8w-53-4
as you can see the rear motor has 3 wires.
pin 2 is ground
pin1 is keep alive pin, 12v.
pin 3 is demand, 12v wiper on, 0v wiper off.

if you cut the pin 3 wire, and the motor keeps going, the motor internal switch is bad.
if cutting pin 3 , kills the motor ,that means the hand switch is bad.
or shorted some way.

Sounds like the motor has shorted and is receiving an intermittent signal. I would try a pick n pull salvage yard and replace the motor; it should not cost much at all.
