    Question Windshield wiper problem

    Hello! I am a happy owner of a CTS and now experiencing a problem with the Caddy. I am new to this and hoping that I could receive some help from someone that knows the issue that I'm receiving. After not using the ride for about a week, I turn on the car and my windshield wipers turned on. I looked at the switch and it was on off mode. I then tried the different modes on the switch, and no turn would work to turn them off. The next step I took, was to restart the vehicle by disconnecting the battery. After connecting the battery, I saw that they wiped again. I tried this process again by disconnecting the fuse and the battery and nothing. So now I just have the fuse off until it rains then I will have to insert the fuse. I don't think its the motor due to them being able to move. Do I have to buy a new switch, motor, or is there a trick to fix them?

    I'd start with a switch...or at least take the console apart and disconnect the switch...if they keep running you know it's not the switch...if they do...well you found your problem.

    I have the same problem on 2004 CTS. What was the solution/fix?

    Was it defective switch or motor assy?



    Thanks!
