Windshield Wipers May Fail Due to Faulty Wiper Motor Control Board on GMC Yukon

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.

Pressed/moved plug to control board. No permanent fix yet.
Wipers work when they want. When they do work sometimes they just stop and won't start again. Almost hit someone walking because it was dark and rain was pouring. Had pulled over twice trying to get them to work.
