Wipers will not turn off please help!

i restored a few camaros this particular one is a complete restoration with new wiper motor switches and harness. this wiper will not shut off when you turn the switch off. if you put some resistance on the wiper when you turn it off sometimes it will shut off. i know the system turns on and shuts off with ground this has a after market rebuilt motor i am thinking there is a problem with the motor. has anyone experienced this?

pull the switch from the dash, turn on the wipers then shut the switch off. If wipers still moving then disconnect the power lead from the switch. If they shut off you can bet the switch sticks and is at fault.

Re: Wipers will not turn off please help!

i have already tried that and i even got another new switch and the wipers still dont turn off. i am thinking that there might be something wrong with the new wiring harness or something not right in the new motor at the canceling position. any suggestions?

thanks

I think if the washer pump is running it will not park. One of the teeth on the washer pump gear is missing and the tang on the spring is used instead. If the tang get worn it won't advance the gear to shut the washer off then it won't park.

Actually, the parking cam is located inside the riveted area, not really serviceable. I would return the defective motor. A grounds issue would either stop wipers when switch is turned off or they dont start.

On this pic, the cam is a raised plastic tab on the green gear and there is a contact near the fuse looking resistor. The raised tab goes between the contacts to turn them off.

Angry Re: Wipers will not turn off please help!

Im having the same problem. new motor, new switch. I have verified that the switch is grounding the proper wires and linking wires 1 and 2 in the off position as designed. The motor does not seem to be configured the same way as the switch. Jumping the 1 and 2 posts on the motor does not shut it off. Did they change these crazy motors after 73?

Here is how my wiring manual says it should work:

Hot to center pin all the time.
Ground pin one for high speed
Ground pin one and two for low speed
Ground dark blue wire to pump for washer
Link pin one and two to turn off.

No matter what I do, the motor runs when the key is on.

I tried to bench test it. Its hard to get the motor to run consistently. It will run in low if you jump the 1 & 2. It will run fast if you ground 1.

What I am looking for is someone who can explain the exact functions of the pins on a Cardone 40-162.

Yep and this one even longer ago....if u take the black plastiic cover off, u will see the washer cam teeth rotaiong, then it comes to one a little different which shuts everything off....it is either broken or worn...

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
