General comment: Most automotive wiring uses the body for the ground wire. Where is the ground? ... In the bolt or screw that fastens the motor to the car body. If the motor is mounted on rubber, as in isolated from the body, ... there should be a ground ... make one ... it can be attached from a good solid body connection to any part of the metal body of the motor. Get a wire and a screw, drill a hole in the body, wrap the sire around it securely ... fasten it to any part of the WSW motor.

How do do I Fix windsheld wippers.

Check the relays. The check for 12V at the wiper connector. Also check for a good ground between the wiper body and any metal surface. If they check out OK, but unit still wont run. Identify the 12V input to the motor. Connect it directly to the battery positive post. Unit runs problem is with the BCM. Unit does not run unit is bad or internal electronic controls is bad. Chrysler loves to run everything through the BCM (totally unnecessary) but it makes them a pile of money since many small things lights, etc run through the BCM and when they go bad the BCM needs replacing at $600 a crack! Nice scam huh?

My 1989 GMC Vandura wipers stopped working suddenly. No warning. Fuse is ok. Power wire still has power going to the wiper motor. Not sure how to test the switch or motor. Please help.

make sure the motor is getting a good ground otherwise wak that ****** with a hammer,it may have just jambed up so check all moving wiper arms and rods from motor to wipers. If you have power to motor then it can only be motor or linkages

How to repair rear window wiper on 2002 chev venture

Good day, if you can hear a pulsating buzz coming from the wiper motor, you probably have a grounding problem. If you do a fixya search for 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe, then at bottom of page under how tos I have a tip to fix rear wiper. If Chevrolet used that same wiper motor on your car, maybe it will fix yours too. Since it is a different model removal of panels to get wiper motor access will be different, then connect a wire from wiper motor frame to a good chassis ground. Good luck.

Changing wiper motor in chev s10

It's not bad. They make a special tool to remove the motor from the arm assembly, but with a little determination I was able to remove it with out the tool. If your wipers aren't working try running power to the motor first to test it. I swapped it out and the problem ended up being a bad ground in the switch. I bypassed that for a little while by running a jumper wire from the engine block to motor. It also could be the pulse module they are known for going bad in GM vehicles.

Windshield wipers

most of these windshield wiper motors are located right below the windsheld and above hood. you probably have to undo the louvers where the windshield wiper arms are located and it sits in front of the driver side not too bad to swap yourself part itself is about $60 w/old motor turned in
