Customer Question

Customer: I am Milt. I have a 2000 LeSabre, and the wipers won't turn off. At first, started swiping just once, when turned off. Now, they continue to swipe, periodically stopping for a few seconds.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Nothing that I can think of, except, this just started, this past weekend, and we have had a week of endless, heavy rains.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Buick Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Yes. Just need to get it resolved, ASAP. I drive for Lyft, the Uber competitor and can't drive with this problem.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Most common to cause this fault here that I have run across several times before is the wiper motor assembly itself.It houses the internal control board electronics that shut down the wiper motor.There is a chance the wiper switch is at fault instead but most common is the wiper motor needing replaced.Below are the diagnostic procedures on how to test this to make sure it is the motor at fault or to see if the switch is at fault.

The cost I show for the wiper motor from a dealer is around $350 and less then an hour to replace.You might be able to get the motor cheaper from a salvage yard or local parts store.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
