Common GM Wiper Problem




What do you think about this video?

zues zueser: i have a 97 the wipers work until they get in the middle of the windshield then it starts chattering and making a stutter type noise if you pull on them they go all the way over and back down but on the way up it stops and starts stuttering is it the board??? before this happened they would not come on unless you pulled on the then they would take off like normal onlt happened a few time like that

Robert Guyot: I have a 95 s10 and wipers freaked out on me.... they would stay on even when I turned them off..... I took the board out and it looks brand new. No cold solder joints.... but i did notice build up of grease on the two spring loaded contactor that ride on the plastic planetary gear. The gear has a metal plate embedded in it and that's how the board knows where the wipers are... mine was filthy... I cleaned it and put new grease on it (all I had was ford factory door hinge kinda grease... the tan stuff) and reassembled everything and tried it out and now my intermittent wipers work again, they turn off when I tell them to! Try this out if the connection trick doesn't work for you. It worked for me and saved me alot of money

nipps1992: well my problem i think its cause my car is too cold when it gets to -20 sometimes and it will start but my wipers and blinker lights r on ( they dont blink they r just on ) and my wipers wont stop still its warmed up but today it didnt even stop wiping and i was using my car for 10 mins 

Tregeta: Thanks so much! You just saved me tons of money and headache. 

matt k: Wow this problem has been bugging the hell out of me. I didn't want to re wire or spend hundreds on a new motor. Thanks for this !!!! 

gristlepounder: Anyone have a part# for this?

Bradahcuz: Exactly what was wrong thanks for the video

Willie Smith: Great info: BUT My problem is I need a fix for my 2002 dakota, The Interment wipers dont work right, just sometimes a little, Hi speed does work, I replaced the combination blinker/wiper switch, did not fix the problem. I'v done a lot of research, I'm not sure I even have a pulse control module board in my truck for the wiper motor, but I must have one someplace, where hummm, and I cant find any vidios on dodge vehicles concerning this problem. Maybe dodges dont break down, yea rght. I need help "please" Rain is killing me. 12/22/14 WILL 707-333-0778 anytime

Andrew Roby: I've got an 88 cherokee & the wipers only work in the "off" position at "low" speed. So I know the micro processor in the wiper motor reads resistance and slows down the wiping speed. If it only works in low position I think that means I'm not getting full continuity on the + cable. Since it's only working in the off position I'd have to assume there is either a broken switch or wiring issue. Anyone have any thoughts?

Ed Erickson: ty sprayed engine last night wipers stay on thinking pulse board great video ty

Guillermo Rodríguez: i had that problem in my c5 corvette,,wiper motor i replace it myself,,anybody can do it,,save money do not go to mechanic murderers,

Dontarius Burks: I have a 99-00 escalade and one time my radio and wipers and all power windows stop at once and I got my radio fix the guy said just had a fuse blown but now my windows and wipers still dosent work my wipers and windows coms on an off when it gets ready it can be a month later when it decides to com back on 

stratbluesman: that was an easy fix for the pulse board but really didn't troubleshoot anything else that it could be !! what if wipers didn't come on when you wiggle the connection? then what ???? is it the motor then ? or both ? or what?

tilerist pancho: Hey just to say thanks for this video. Yo saved me a ton of $$$$ cause I replace the part my self. Thanks again. 

caesar ramirez: Thanks, Good video.

rodeo o: before buying the part, with a soldering iron, rehead the solder joints add solder if needed,,,,,

lorraine donovan: Did it, now my engine is sputtering & stopping and sucking all my elec. my lights dim, the panel dims, what?

Daniel Snow: What if my turn signals activate my wipers? I have a 92 S-10

Dennis O'Boyle: PARTS NUMBERS and Manufacturers can include but are not limited to: • 88136, 906-136, and 906-138 Dorman HELP Wiper Pulse Board • 172361 ACI Wiper Motor Pulse Board Module • 12463090 ACDelco Wiper Motor Pulse Board Module

1R083rt: I have a 2002 Chevy s10 that only one wiper works , and its the passenger side...and it doesn't help that is raining.. do you think It might be the same fix for me?

Ed Miranda: Thanks, worked like a charm

rudolph serna: What's the part number

Gabe Brandt: Might be a good idea to disconnect battery too

Le-Vaughan Lemarr: I have not had that issue yet and had my truck for 6 years now.

punkin1418: hey man i have a 2000 s10 that im having the same problem with and i done what you did in the video, i wiggled the connector around and unplugged it and plugged it back in a few times and they wouldn't ever come on, do you think the problem could still be the board?

Michael Koebel: On my 02 Grand Cherokee, my front wipers stop randomly in the middle of the window when using them on any of the lower settings. They work fine on the highest setting. Do you think this could be the solution? If not, what else could it be?

smithdsmit: my wipers on my 1990 c1500 wont turn off unless i shut car off.i just replaced steering column but it had similar probs with old column. only 2 sppeds will work and my window washer fluid wont work. would it be this be causing my probs

epiphaknee: @X2N18 There is a Wiper Board Pulse Module for a 1988 "Big" Blazer. The part number is 15598496 and it is about $57.50 including shipping. But check with a dealer to get the correct part # for your application. Their site rhymes with "sock". If they would sponsor Dave's site I would give you a direct link. You may be able to beat that price too with a little searching online. You can always try a good wrecking yard too. GM likes to use the same part on EVERYTHING!! lol

roadragecustoms: @poland4321 Did I miss the end of your comment? Was that going to be a question I was supposed to help with?

poland4321: I viewed the headlight switch replacement on 1992 Grand Marquis. I do wish you would show more detail. Such as socket size and type. Such as HOW these plastic connectors are taken apart. Every connector in my Ford is different and has a different way do disconnect. Pull, push, twist, pull apart, push in, push in both sides, push in one side, etc. But I do thank you for taking the time to actually post this video and it does help. Also, there are two switches for these cars. Standard and

farmerinchico: I had that exact problem in my 1995 Chevrolet pick-up. GM repaired it during one of their recalls. It wasn't fun getting stuck in the middle of highway 680 in a heavy downpour with wipers that work sporadically.

James Gresham: Worked like a champ. Thanks!

wade ross: My wipers stop in the wrong position all the time, even worse, they don't stop sometimes. is this due to the wiper module??

sbrown0221: I have a 1989 chevy stepside C1500 and mine has all these same symptons but my board is long and skinny. Does anyone have a prts number for this style board?

utoobube: Great vid man, love the intro. LOL, I never had that problem with our 97 blazer...well not with the front wipers anyway. The rear wipers gave me hell. ....and that pesky 4x4 servo. I kept swearing everytime it went out was the last time I'd buy a new servo, that I was gonna rig something up, but everytime the price of the blasted thing was cheaper than the last. LOL, G.M;s huh?

asus3571: gotta 02 ls and they wipe just fine but they will not go into park possion they park in front of my eyeballs could it still be the connector as in this vid thanks

ranchand58: 04 Duramax Crew Cab Dually, really strange wiper problem. While operating wipers in rain, right side began to slap when it went down. As it continued, it would rise less and less until it completely quit working, all while the left side continued to work fine. Don't know where to begin, but tearing it down today. Any thoughts?

bowen womack: I have a 94 gmc truck. Yes thats your problem. go to a junk yard and get one thats what I did it was about 10 bucks

smithdsmit: do you remember what size torque srew bit you used.I dont have any and dont want to have to buy them all

spelunkerd: Is this a recall item?

Lukas Glofcheskie: 2002 chev impala. one wiper works on one side, the other side jerks up about 2 inches then goes down. goes up 2 inches then down

Fritz Petre: i have a 95 chevy and every time i put a new fuse in it and turn the key i blow a fuse any ideas?

asus3571: ive got an 02 impsla its had major wiper issues its not a bad motor because all setting work except when turned off they will not park in the home position they stop in front of my face any idea what the prob is i was told it was a bad motor but the motor runs just fine thankyou great vid btw

roadragecustoms: @spelunkerd Now that you mention it, yes, it is. There were 1,500,000 vehicles affected by the recall-including mine. I don't know if they would still honor it or not. It was in 1998. The part was cheap & I don't like other people working on my vehicles anyway.

VQ1whales: Oh don't replace that board.... Just resolder the cracked solder points on the back side of the connector block. You can see which ones in bright light.. They were cold soldered and like to crack out. Saved me 80 bucks in parts and this guy would make a 100 in labor for a 15 min. fix There is a vid here on you tube to show ya which ones go bad...

31virgovibe: Thanks! I'm gonna replace the board myself tomorrow so I won't die like I almost did the other night.

jaymehann: i just bend up those two contacts if im in a bind, all moving the whole thing does is just move em in a bit

Franck Vanpee: Thanks, it works perfect, I open the box, remove the board, and do some soldering on the connector, and all good now!!! thanks for the video.

MBScooter61: THX MAN! it's been driving me nuts for 6 months.

LUISx512: man you are freakin cool thanks for all your hellp
