yep, others have had this issue...the windshield wiper motor is normally the culprit. yes i know it is only spraying, but it is connected to the wiper motor and thats how it gets its power

i would say crossed wire but....
how long have you had the car? when did this start?

and just to be clear on the problem...lets say... you are driving, it starts raining so you put your wipers on. BAAM your windshield washer sprayers fire up a keep spraying....or just ban 1 shot then nothing?

Since the controls goes through the wiper motor and they are known to go bad to where they are "on" even though the switch is off. Then I would point my fingers at the wiper "motor" module. You can get a pretty cheap one from eBay.

I have a 2006 CTS 3.6 Luxury model. About 2 months ago, when I turned on the wipers, the washer also started pumping and ran until it emptied the reservoir. You could still hear the pump running when empty. This happened every time I ran the wipers. Also the first postion on the wiper was to be intermittent, it was slow, steady.
The fix is faulty wiper control module, the GM part number is 88958118. Dealer price for this is $214.00, found it on-line for $108.00. Had my mechanic (not Dealer) replace it for $60.00 labor.
I found many posts with this same problem and same diagnosis, but nobody could provide the actual part number.

Cheers
