Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

My windsheild wiper motor sometimes stops mid way through the stroke and sometimes it doesn't work at all. If you leave on though it will eventually work but after a few minutes it starts to stop mid way through the stroke. This occurs on all of the settings. The motor has already been changed. Now what?

It sounds like you have a faulty switch. I would recommend that you change the wiper control switch. In order to do this, yoyu will need to remove the steering column cover, and the steering wheel. Remember to disconnect the battery when you are performing any work in a car that has a SRS-safety restraint system.

Windsheild wiper will not work, what to check next

Check wiper fuse. If ok turn key to on position and try to pull wiper arm into the direction that they would swipe on the windshield. If this doesn't work u could try tapping on the wiper motor while the key is on to see if that works. Use a test light to see if motor has power to it.

My rear wiper works only intermittently, and today the wiper stopped working mid-stroke, and I'm hearing a tapping noise from the inside of the lift gate near the wiper. I pulled the wiper fuse, but it...

Tried pulling the fuse for the washer fluid? Sounds like the wiper motor is failing or it doesn't have a good connection. Disconnect the battery at night to ensure you'll have enough power to crank it in the morning.

Windsheild wipers work sometimes and sometime they dont want to come on

check for electrical plugs going to the wiper motor, unplug it and plug it in a few times to sorta clean the connection tabs inside . they get water and dirt inside and it makes a bad connection. if the problem persists it could be a bad switch in the car, and maybe even a bad wiper motor

The park switch is built into the motor. YOu need a new motor. Find an independent shop and have them replace with a rebuilt or new aftermarket unit instead of a dealer unit. The labor guide shows 1.4 hours to replace the motor

Windsheild Wipers will not move, the arm seems to be slipping on the motor shaft,

It sounds like you live in a climate were snow and ice occurs. If so a lot of people leave their wipers on upon shutting off their cars. If you happen to do that and the windsheild had moister on it or if the snow starter falling while your vehicle was still warm it will freeze. The larger the snow amount the stronger the force will be if you start your vehicle up the next morning with your wipers buried in frozen ice & snow. Since the wipers were not shut off the wiper motor will run and the wiper blades will not. This will strip the linkage the wiper arms press onto leaving you with out working windsheild wipers

The windsheild wipers only work occassionally

Most likely the wiper motor,when it stops working,bump the wiper motor to see if it will start working,if it does,the wiper motor is bad,it does not always work,bumping the wiper motor,but if it does not,then check to see if it is getting voltage to the wiper motor,and if it is,the wiper motor needs replacing.
