I just purchased this 1987 Eldorado and am having problem with the windshield wipers. I can turn them on normally but they will not turn off. Only after I turn off the ignition will they return to their "nesting" state. Also the washer will turn on wipers when depressed but the fluid will not operate and once again the wipers will not shut off until the ignition is shut off.
It looks as if the wiper motor has been replaced with one from junkyard as it has Buick painted on it in yellow (like from salvage yard)
Please help this is a real problem as I live in mountains and need the wipers alot



I did replace the switch but didn't fix. Is there a wiper pulse board somewhere on car or is that in the motor assembly?

Hello
Thanks for the donation

Suspect a faulty wiper/washer switch. First inspect the WIPER fuse, the three Wiper Motor mounting bolts to ensure they are clean and tight and check that the Wiper/Washer switch connector is mated correctly. If all is OK here then replacement of the switch is needed.

Thanks for using 2CarPros. Com!
