Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
There is a circuit board just below the windshield wiper motor, it is in a sealed box. Unfortunately, it was a poor design where the solder points are susceptible to circuit board flexing and the solder joints work loose, giving intermittent operation of the wipers. A new upgraded circuit board (without said fail points) costs USD $27 at any discount auto store. As far as the washer pump, it is another common fail point to 1995-2003 GMC Jimmy - Sonoma, and 1995-2003 Chevy Blazer - S-10 pickups. You have to remove the air cleaner to remove the washer fluid tank. The cost of the pump is around USD $15. You can do like I did, re-solder the points on the circuit board, but mine failed again about 50K miles down the road. The problem is that the points for the windshield wiper motor are on the circuit board, and the movement of the wiper motor flexes the solder points for the connectors. The new boards do not have solder points like the OEM parts. The boards are completely different, and unlikely to fail again.
