Hey guys, After changing the wiper blades the passenger side wiper stopped working. Drivers side wiper is working fine, but passenger side does not. Wiper fluid comes out it, it just will not go like it should. What do you think the problem could be?

I noticed the date, two years old. I am sure you have gotten this fixed by now or sold the vehicle by now. I was going to suggest checking the nut holding the wiper blade. I had a similar problem on my 2005 Yukon. On blade got frozen in ice and backed the nut off. It is an easy fix.

I got in my car after a snowstorm. When I turned on my wipers the passenger side wiper would not return to its original position. It kept stopping higher and higher until it finally went under the driver's side wiper. I pulled it back to its original starting position, and after that it no longer worked. Any idea what I could do?

Check at the base of the wiper arm, there is usually a black plastic cap. Pop it off and tighten the nut underneath it, they usually loosen up.

My power windows and windshield wipers stopped working. The radio comes on for a short period of time and goes off. If I hit a rough area in the road or if I push the button for the windows the radio shuts off as if it loses power. The guy at Meineke said it is the body control module. Please help me I cannot afford the shop or dealership.

Sounds like a ground loose when you hit something hard it moves and things quit. It may be on left hand side of dash.

I recently purchased this SUV it is the XL model and I started having some electrical issues. It started with the door locks not working, then the power mirrors stopped working and know the windshield wipers are not working. They quit working once before but then they started working again. My question is do all of these components have a common part such as a relay?

During a storm the other day the right side wiper quit working while the driver side wiper continued working. What is going on?
