View Full Version : Windshield wiper problems

Whenever I put my wipers on intermittent the wipers stutter. Minor problem, but it can be annoying. Is there a simple solution to this problem?

Crappy stock wiper blades do that. Go get some better ones like Bosch. I have those and they never stutter.

Bosch are excellent. I payed maybe $15 bucks for the pair, i dunno i forget exactly, but i love them highly would recommend them to anyone.

By stutter, I mean the wiper motor is stuttering. It'll start coming up then then itll shake violently.

It's the motor? Did you lift the arms off the windsheild and run the wipers?

Yep. It only happens when I put it on intermittent. On low and high it doesn't stutter.

Did you resolve the problem? I just bought a 2001 Grand Am and it does the same thing. I noticed it doesn't seem to act up when it's cold. They start getting screwey when the cars hot.

Sweet, someone else with my problem. No, I haven't fixed it yet. It's a minor problem, but it can get annoying.

mine do something like that too.. but they die completely and then come back to life.. most of the time they work properly so i cant get it diagnosed at the dealership. I think mine has something to do with my fuse box.
