Check that the wiper arm hasn't come loose.
Tighten the nut under the cover.

Why is it my 2008 chevy uplander rear wiper motor/blade moves some and stops. I let van set 5-10 minutes with key off. Turn on key. Wiper motor/blade moves a few degrees and then stops again. Why?


Can you move the wiper by hand ? Which does your vehicle have ?
WDA/Z88 The rear wiper is controlled based on an input from the rear wiper/washer portion of the multifunction switch. When closed, the wiper ON and wiper DELAY switches provide a unique voltage signal to the rear window wiper motor indicating the desired speed. Each switch has a unique resistor that drops the voltage to a specified value which is interpreted by the rear window wiper motor as ON or DELAY. The rear wiper motor receives B+ voltage from the I/P fuse block and accessory voltage from the body control module (BCM).
W49 The rear wiper is controlled based on an input from the rear wiper/washer switch. When closed, the wiper ON switch provides a voltage signal to the rear window wiper motor indicating rear wiper operation is requested. The rear wiper motor receives B+ voltage from the I/P fuse block and accessory voltage from the body control module (BCM).
Do you know how to do electrical testing ?
WDA/Z88
  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector X1 at the multifunction switch.
  2. Ignition ON, verify a test lamp illuminates between the ignition circuit terminal 4 and ground.
  3. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the ignition circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, refer to Power Mode Mismatch.

  4. Ignition OFF, connect the harness connector at the multifunction switch. Disconnect the harness connector at the rear window wiper motor.
  5. Test for less than 20 ohms between the ground circuit terminal B and ground.
  6. ?‡'
    If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.

  7. Ignition ON, verify a test lamp illuminates between the B+ circuit terminal A and ground.
  8. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the B+ circuit for an open/high resistance.

  9. Verify a test lamp illuminates between the ignition circuit terminal E and ground.
  10. ?‡'
    If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the ignition circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance.

  11. Rear wiper switch in the ON position, test for B+ between the signal circuit terminal D and ground.
  12. ?‡'
    If less than the specified value, test the signal circuit for an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, test or replace the multifunction switch.

  13. Rear wiper switch in the DELAY position, test for B+ between the signal circuit terminal D and ground.
  14. ?‡'
    If less than the specified value, test or replace the multifunction switch.

  15. If all circuits test normal, test or replace the rear window wiper motor.

  1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the rear wiper switch.
  2. Ignition ON, verify a test lamp illuminates between the ignition circuit terminal 6 and ground.

Rear wiper rotates around


the wiper arm is held against the glass by a spring-corrosion in the arm doesn't allow the spring to pull it against the glass-in order to position it properly take the arm off,run the wiper while watching it-you need 2 people for this job-noting where it starts from and where it ends at. put the wiper where it looks close to where it should be and try it you may have to reposition it a few times. as far as the wiper arm being corroded-I would replace it. the reason its going down right now is because its in the wrong position from the carwash-these things can be nasty to get off-you can get a tool at the auto parts stores-ie autozone ,advanced auto or pepboys-cheers Denny

2004 Jeep rain sensing wipers continue to run regardless of setting or amount of rain


a couple of thoughts:
Has your windshield just been replaced?
The sensor is up by the rear view mirror, is it plugged in all the way?
Do you have the right size wiper blades on your vehicle? (too short of a blade misses the rain sensor and does not wipe it clean)
How good are your blades? ( as above, to turn off the rain sensor the blade needs to wipe it clean)
The rain sensor works by projecting multiple inferred beams to the inside of the windshield, like a prism, they reflect back to collectors. when there is a water droplet on the outside of the windshield it changes a beams trajectory and it misses the collector thust turning on the wipers.
(yes, this all happens in that little sensor up by the rear view mirror.)
check to make sure the wiper switch is in the right position.
also....I've seen rain sensors not work properly when the hood or doors are open.
hope this helps

How do I take off the wiper on the rear window? The owner's manual does not describe how to do this, and I need to replace the wiper blade.


Why do it!! Most Auto stores will do it for FREE, if you buy the blade from them. They come out in the parking lot & change the rear for you. BUt if you want to lift the litttab on the blade where the arm meets the blade & slide towards the arm. Belive it a 16in blade. $10 cost for rear.
