Hello all,

I have a 01 GrandAm. My wipers will not turn off once I turn them on. They will operate in the "low" speed when the switch is on intermitent, off and mist. High works as expected. If I start the car with the switch in the off position, the wipers will stay off until I turn them on. Then they get hosed again.

Well....what do you guys think. My dad is telling me the motor but I sort of think it's the switch.

Have you done some type of repair around you steering column? If you did maybe some of the wires on the control got loose or the control needs to be replaced. One time my turn signals where acting funny and all I did was give it a nice hit, no problem after that. :)

what carlos said...if you cant figure it out with wiring you'll need to put in a new switch. :(

Its a coin-toss between needing a new switch or a new wiper motor. I've seen both cause a problem like this before.

Only way to be sure is find someone good with automotive electronics and let them diagnose it.
