    i have my 93 suburban and my wipers work when they want and for how long they want, damn union workers, lol, but on a serious note, anyone know where the relay box is thats after the fuze box, but before the wiper motor, cause thats the only thing i can think is maybe wrong with it, but if you have any ideas, im up for suggestions on what you think might be wrong to.

    There was a issue with the switch on seveal GM products back in the late 80s and early 90s. I had the same problem several years ago on another vehicle.

    circuit board

    I had the same problem with my '93 Sub. There's a replaceable control (circuit board?) on the front side of the wiper motor. A contact wears out on the factory one. Can't remember what I paid for it but think i got it online. Just google "intermittant wiper repair" or something like that and you should find them listed.Takes about ten minutes to replace and now mine work like new. Good luck.

    i just replaced the entire wiper motor, got the part at oreillys for 53 and then returned the old one for 13 core exchange

    same problem

    My wife informed me the other day that the wipers on her '99 Suburban are doing the same thing. I reckon a replacement wiper motor is in order also.

    the body style from 88-99 for those trucks and SUVs are pretty common for having the wiper problem. It can be fixed by soldering a wire insde that breaks loose but i think its just easier to get the new motor

    OK, but its cheaper and a lot easier to just replace the circuit board! No soldering needed.:tuxout:

    I had the same problem on my 1994 Suburban, it got to be a running gag within the family, I had a cousin try talking to the truck to get it to stop!!! :) On occasion it would scare the pants off the person in the passenger seat it was good for a laugh!!
