My DW's 99 Sable's windshield wiper will come on, make about 2-4 passes, and then quit all by it's self. :confused: Happens at random times, sometimes several months will go by befoere it does it. No rhyme nor reason, sometimes driving straight, sometimes turning. Dealer can not duplicate issue, they think I am bonkers. Any idea's?

Thanks in advance, Gerry

my mother has a chevy van that does the same thing. sometimes hers dont come on at all. she replaced her wiper motor, and it stopped for a while, then started again.

could be a faulty wire...wires under the dash have a fondness for melting together and shorting out. could also be in your switch.

and it could be the motor itself. that's probably the easiest thing to test.

boy, i was a lot of help, wasn't i? :)

my guess is loose connection somewhere shorting stuff out. good luck.

As always, any wiper, turn signal or lighting problem probably comes from the Multi Function switch. Take it out and thoroughly clean it including the wiper contacts under the cap at the end.

WD 40 works wonders on this.
