Re: Wipers have a mind of their own

they will stop somewhere in the middle
of the windshield. Then maybe 5 or 10
minutes later they will return to home,
or sometimes never return to the
original start position.
Anyone have a clue what's going on?
Had similar problem on my DeVille, in fact, I almost ran over an 18
wheeler during a bad storm on I10. The wiper-motor was the problem.
Replacing it was the solution. When you buy the replacement motor, keep
the old one until you know for sure the replacement does everything it's
supposed to. I had to use the pcb from the old motor before everything
worked properly. Had I not kept the old motor, I'd have been in a bad
mood! You can always turn in the old motor for the core charge later.
Check with the dealer, this is a recall item for many GM vehicles. I got
a new wiper motor PC board for my 97 Bravada at no cost.
Miper motor pc board???(GOOD ONE)
The recall is for a wiper module....Due to intermitted stop of wiper
function...ONe time they work one time they dont...This sounds more like
the motor ....Not the module..
