    I have the same issue. Someone told me it is the circuit board in the module just below the windshield - i'm going to a junkyard to find one this weekend.

    I had the same problem except now the wipers won't work at all. I can hear the wiper motor running, but the wiper blades won't move. I was told to replace the wiper motor.

I had the same problem. My brother changed the wiper motor and now I have no problem with them. I would change the motor if I were you.

The windshield wipers only work when they want to in my 1997 GMC Safari van.


these have had problems with the wiper motor having a bad ground.take a jumper wire and run it from a good ground to the body of the wiper motor.if this doesn`t help then with the wipers on(hopefully not working at the time)take a hit the motor and see if it starts to work.if it does then the motor has a bad spot in it(like a bad starter) and will need to be replaced.

1997 GMC Jimmy. A/C fan blowing intermittantly, then not at all. Hazzard lights working sometimes, power locks and windows working most of the times, turning on the windshield wiper shuts off the radio.


Check that the power fuse and relay boxes are not wet now, or have evidence of minerals left behind from being wet at one time (like a flood).

1999 gmc sierra wipers will only run on high. Any idea why?


The wiper motor control module needs replacing. On some models you can replace the "pulse board". On some you must replace the wiper control module which mounts directly to the windshield wiper motor. This is a very common GM problem.

Windshield wipers work intermittentaly


You may have a loose connection or more than likely a worn switch. This is probably a unitzed switch for the wipers and turn signals
