I have a hesitation in the wiper during the intermittent setting. I will set the wiper to go every couple of seconds. the wiper starts to wipe and then half-way acrost the windshield it will stop for a second and go again. It is kind of a jerky motion. any suggestions woudl be great.

Replace the wiper motor control board, it's cheap and usually the cause of most intermitent problems

Unplug the wiper motor, remove the three screws, pull the circuit board straight off, and have the cracked solder on the board resoldered. The new board will crack the solder in the same place, and if left unrepaired, there have been instances where the motor has caught fire, hence the recall GM did on some of my fleet.

If you don't solder, any radio or tv shop can do it, 10 minutes tops.
