Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Windshield wipers stay on delay all the time.

My wife hit a tree, and now the windsheild wipers stay on delay all the time. The switch doesn't work when turned on. The wipers will work while holding the washers on, but as soon as you stop holding the washers on, they quit. Any suggestions?
Thank you, Dave.

    Thank you for your help. My problem may not be directly related to the accident, and may just be a coincident. The accident happened at 5mph, but did a lot of body damage. I think the wipe switch may be defective. Bampa55

    Wipers were working VERY slow. Than stopped in the middle of the windshield and will not work.

A wire is shorted out or part of the switch is bad.

1988 jeep cherokee,6 cylinder my front windsheild wipers dont work.fuse is good.the wiper motor makes a noise when its turned on.is there a relay that could be faulty?wiper switch is the same as the turn...


No relay in the circuit.
There is a delay module but if it fails that usually causes the wipers to stop in the middle of travel or only run on high.
And the switch is working if you hear noise coming from the motor. The wiper switch is not the same switch as the turn signals but it is near that assembly.
I would say if you have power to the wiper motor the motor is probably dead or something happened to the linkage to the arms.

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.

Windsheild wipers delay wont work properly. turn them on and the wiper just keep going at normal speed with no delay. turn them off and the keep running then stop in the middle of windshield.


The wiper module is probably bad.It is located on the wiper motor many times you can wiggle the wires going to the module and some function is restored temporarily but most likely the module willneed replaced.

Windsheild wipers only work on high


you have to check the relays connecting the windshield and also the fuses. if any one of these dont work replace them. if they are working fine, the problem is with the motor. the coil should have been damaged.

Windshield wipers won't work right


The windsheild wiper relay might be stuck or broken. Try tapping it with something or replace it. Could also be the the switch (lever that you control the wipers with) i hope this helps and good luck with diagnosing your problem.
