Windshield Wipers May Fail Due to Faulty Wiper Motor Control Board on Chevrolet Tahoe

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The windshield wipers may not work intermittently due to a faulty wiper motor control board. Our technicians tell us that lightly taping on the wiper motor when the fault occurs should temporarily get the wipers working again. 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.

Wipers will not stop or adjust to speed chosen - huge problem when barely raining or coming down in buckets - have had to pull over and shut off engine and restart to get wipers to act properly - buying RainEx to drive safely - problem 50% of time
wipers only operate at slow speed. Would stop mid cycle.
