On vehicles with intermittent windshield wipers, the wiper motor circuit board may fail and cause the wipers to stop working at times. Replacing the circuit board should resolve the issue. Some vehicles were recalled for this problem and some were not. You will need to check with your local dealer to find out if a specific vehicle was included.

    Wiper motor did not function when activated, no noises could be heard. Manually pulling the wiper blade an inch would activate the wiper motor for it's full cycle, sometimes allowing it to continue operation, but sometimes only for a single cycle. Replacing the pulse board module solved the issue, no other repairs done.
