This is a very common problem on the Impalas. I had to fix my 2002 Impala. Both wipers will point straight up.
There is a tab that may be bent near the wiper motor shaft.
Open the hood.
You need to remove the driver's side wiper arm. You need to pop-off the round black cover and there's a nut underneath.
Then remove the plastic cover between the windshield and the engine compartment.
See the pictures below, Look for a bent TAB. it's really tough, but bend it back with pliers and/or big screwdriver. The "catch" needs to stop on the tab to park the wipers correctly.
If the tab is OK, look for a missing or broken spring. For that, you'll need to get the replacement part from the dealer. May be: park mechanism, part #12494832

Why are my wipers going constantly and why doesn't any air blow out of my vents on my 2005 Chevy Impala?


I think you have two things going on, your multifunction switch which runs our wipers and your blinkers and high beam, is bad. for your Heat not working , i'm pretty sure that is not tied into the wiper system,does you fan turn on at all in any speeds low high only ?

How to change a mass air filter on a chevy impala 2001 v6 3.8


On the impala, just below the windshield on the passenger side you'll see the black cowl that covers the lower portion of the windshield. You'll need to turn on the wipers and stop them in the straight up position, then raise the hood. Remove the weatherstrip just below the cowl, as well as the washer fluid lines.
You'll need a flathead screwdriver to remove the 3 fittings holding the cowl down. Once the cowl is removed you'll see the cabin filter tucked under. Then it's as easy as removing, reinstalling and putting the cowl, weatherstrip, and washer lines back in place. Also, it's common on the Impalas for a small peice of weatherstrip underneath the cowl to fall off.
This can cause rainwater to leak into the passenger compartment so be sure to secure it back on the metal lip just above the filter. If it won't stay you may need to use some sort of RTV gasket silicone to secure it. That's about all there is to it....

2005 impala windshield wiper


the wirpers are connected to a shaft. the shaft is connected to a motor. The shaft must have turned and wipers were stuck and didn't move. So you will need to pull of each wiper arm and reposition with wipers turned off.

Windshield wipers stuck upright when off


This is a commoon problem with what is called the "Park pawl stop". The tab is most likely bent and needs to be re-aligned, then the wipers need to be re-timed. This re-timing can be a little difficult, although the re-aligning of the tab is failry simple.

Whindshield wipers stuck in a vertical position


This is an easy fix. Likely ice got on your windshield and froze your wipers to the glass then when turned on moved out of position. Take the cover off the base of the wipers and loosen the bolts. Put them down all the way and tighten. When wipers are turned on when frozen to glass the gears want to move but cant and loosens at the base. Please let me know if this does not help and will look into it further but this is probably it. Thanks
