    Wipers will not turn off

    the wipers on my 2004 CTS will not turn off without removing the fuse or unplugging the motor. I have also tried disconnecting the battery to reset the computer without success.

    Several other members have reported this problem but the thread does not reveal the solution/fix, e.g. replaced motor or switch, etc. Any help on this would be appreciated.

    Re: Wipers will not turn off

    The part number is 88958118 and I bought it online from gmparts4u.com. The part was $107.35, but after shipping and taxes it came to about $130. Still alot cheaper than from the dealer where it was $186.

    It really didn't take very long to replace once I figured out how to remove the complete wiper assembly. It wasn't as bad as I initailly thought it was gonna be. I'd say it probably only took me about 30 minutes or so.

    you have to make sure the wiper cover comes with the motor. some do not. ask them if the wiper module is attached to the wiper motor. most of the ones ebay do not come with the cover we need.

    Dang, I wish I knew about the wiper module. When my wipers stuck on, I simply moved to the northwester part of the country where it rains all the time.

    Re: Wipers will not turn off

    I'm having this problem with my 2005 CTS. The gmparts4u.com website does not seem to be working anymore. Is there a way to test to see if it is the switch or the motor that is malfunctioning?

    Thanks!
    Lisa
