These have had problems with the wiper motor having a bad ground.take a jumper wire and run it from a good ground to the body of the wiper motor.if this doesn`t help then with the wipers on(hopefully not working at the time)take a hit the motor and see if it starts to work.if it does then the motor has a bad spot in it(like a bad starter) and will need to be replaced.

1999 gmc safari van wipers wont work


check fuse, then run a ground wire to the wiper motor and ensure the ground is good. if the wipers start to work then the motor just needs a permanent ground connected to it. if it doesn`t work then check for power at the motor if you have power then tap the motor with a hammer to see if it starts if so then the motor is bad.

How to change a heater blower on 1997 gmc safari mini van. I have I have never changed a heater blower on a gmc mini van were do i start?


If your talking about the blower motor, its under the hood. If you buy a delco part there will be instructions in the box. There is a plastic/rubber cover over the motor that needs to be cut with a very sharp knife. Anyway buy the delco part and you'll be able to figure it out from there. Good luck.
