Windshield wipers stuck up


#1

My 1999 Intregue was recently looked at by my father, who had put in some steering fluid. For some reason, after that, my wipers have been standing straight up in the middle of the windshield. I’ve tried pushing them down and for some reason, they just pop right back up. The only way that they stay down is if I actually turn them on…but that’s only helpful in the rain. Someone know how to fix this?

It’s the park circuit in the wiper motor, which seem to be failing quite regularly on GM’s of this vintage. Unfortunately, to fix it you need to replace the whole wiper motor. Some people who live in cold climates see this as a feature, since the snow doesn’t pile up on the wiper blades!

Greasy is correct. Install a new motor
