My windsheild wipers stop in the up position on the delay setting but park all the way down when turned off. How do I fix this


You will need to diagnose this with a multi meter....on dark green terminal d at the wiper pulse board, with the wipers on any delay position, you should be reading .0005 Amps and 12 Volts and at the same time on the delay position one click below low(the fastest delay speed) you should be reading .0003Amps and 12V on terminal E gray wire, The purple wire (terminal C) should have 12V on high speed only. The yellow wire (terminal B) should have 12V when the key is on and the black wire (terminal A) should always be grounded....check all of that and we should be able to find your problem.
The Amperage should change on terminal E (the gray wire) with each position on the switch but the change will be very small. i.e. the first speed (longest delay) will read .000017 A, the second setting .00004 A and so on. Check that and let me know...(by the way, amps are checked in series with the connector so unplug it, place one probe in the connector and the other in the motor plug terminal. )

Windscreen wipers not working


Wiper arm is loose at pivot. Take caps off at pivot and run motor to rest position. Move wiper arms to rest position and secure nuts.

How do you reset the windshield wipers to the start position on a 97 camero? The stop In the middle off the window when turned off.


Pull off the wiper arms when the motor has turned off and the wipers at rest. Realign the arms in the position desired and do a test with a mist of water on the glass. The gear alignment is critical to the way the arm rests when in operation and when at rest.

Rear wiper arm stuck out of position; will not return to window


Open the rear window and push the arm past its usual position against the window. It may restore the the tension. However, You likely need a new wiper arm, you could also try lubricating the pivot point.

Perhaps you might try removing the wipers at rest position (where ever they stop) and setting them back on as close to the folded position. If that doesn't solve the problem it might be in the switch. The last and worst scenario is a defective motor

I replaced the wiper control module and while I did that the wipers were in the up position. Now the new module is in and they are operating but come to rest in the upright position. Do I need to remove...


Perhaps, you could remove the arms and reset them, but, I am curious, did you replace the 'windshield wiper motor?' I was always taught that if the wiper arms did not come to rest in the right resting place, that the wiper motor was at fault.

Good luck on this repair.

The wiper motor hopefully is ok, but if the wiper arms were not mounted at the right spot, it could have damaged the motor as it returned to the rest position, unfortunately.

If there is noise, the noise could be coming from the wiper arm joint being stripped out or the motor itself assuming that the ball joints under the hood and behind the firewall are still connected.

Check these items, and I'm sure you will get to the bottom of this.

Good luck on this repair.

The wiper won't return to rest position


there is a parking relay in the wiper motor's electrical system that does not work no longer. That is why it will not sop and rest at the lower end of the windsheild

After replacing the wiper motor and linkage bushings on my Grand Voyager SE, the wiper arms stop in the straight up position when ''at rest''. Help please


Remove the arms,and place them back on where they need to go,do not turn the wipers on,do this as they set now.If the wiper blades when turned on go off the left side of the windshield ,then you will have to remove everything again,and move the wipers down in the rest position,and align everything up to the rest position,with the wipers at rest,and the motor at rest.
