Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Grand Prix GTP and my windshield wipers won't work

When i turn the wipers on they come up about 2 inches and then they lower back down into the off position. Is there a little motor for the wipers that may have died? or is it just a matter of replacing a fuse? how do i fix it?

The wiper arms are a "friction fit" on the wiper linkage studs.
Remove the cap from the end of each wiper arm, remove the retaining nut, carefully pry the wiper arm off of the stud. Clean out the inside of the arm hole and also clean up the stud. Position the arm back in to proper place on the wiper arm "park" stands and the linkage stud. Put the nut back on the stud and tighten down.
This should solve your problem.

You can try disassembling the wiper arm selector switch (mounted inside the steering column) and cleaning up the contacts with contact cleaner and/or repositioning the contact tabs. If that doesn't work, then a new wiper multiswitch is what it needs.

It could be a problem in the windshield wiper switch itself and you would have to change it out which is not really easy for the in-experienced mechanic.

01 Grand Prix. Driver's wiper barely moves, then


The wiper arms are mounted to "splined" shafts. Either the arm or shaft may be stripped. You need to remove the arm and inspect them.
