On the Saturn SWs the rear wipers eventually quit working as the wiper motor axle/stem corroded over or the unit itself broke due to a cracked internal plastic gear from trying to run the wiper when the blade was frozen to the glass by ice or snow. Suppose the technology is the same. You buy a new unit and install it. Again on SWs the base of the wiper arm would corrode onto and become a part of the motor stem and is a ***ch to remove without breaking the rear glass. Drill a hole through the base of the wiper arm and use a gear puller to get it off instead of prying.

None of my wipers work. We were driving in the rain, and both the from and back wipers just quit. I did not check the fuses because they are 2 seperate fuses.


Both the front and rear wipers have a couple things in common. They are both powered by the 'Wiper System Relay". This relay supplies the power to both the front and rear wiper fuses. I would check for power at both of the fuses. If there is no power, then there is a problem with the relay or the relay circuits. The relay and both of these fuses are located in the underhood fuse/relay box. Please note that there is a "Wiper System Relay" as well as "Front Wiper Relay" and "Rear Wiper Relay" Why??? I don't know...some engineer at Saturn worked out his job-security with this one, I guess...

Any way, the Wiper System Relay feeds both of the fuses which, in turn, feed the two other relays.
The primary side of this relay is controlled by the Ignition 2 circuit from the ignition switch, so the relay is energized any time the ignition switch is on. (sounds like a good way to overheat and burn up a relay to me...but who am I??? I am not an engineer, I just get paid to deal with their stupidity)

The secondary side of this relay gets its power directly from the battery...no fuses in between, just a fusiblelink. This link is not the problem because there would be a whole bunch of other stuff not working - including your engine computer.

If I were to take a guess, it would be the relay.

Let me know if this helps you. Take a moment to rate my solution this will let me, as well as other know.

2000 Saturn SL2 wipers stop working


it could be the wiper relay or the wiper motor could be heating up and stoping causing it to work again when it cools down either case start with relay and if that does not fix the problem replase the wiper motor

Front wipers are moving very slowly and stop.


there is a fuse for the wipers that has a relay for when the wiper motor heats up like from heavy snow and it can cause some problems so check it or get a good mechanic to look at your position.
