Re: Rear Wiper Will Not Turn Off
Well, here is the latest information on this problem. I thought I had a pattern figured out this morning on the way to the hospital. If I had my foot on the brake and then toggled the switch on then back off the wiper would stop. Unfortunately it would then start again about 30 seconds later. Later in the day I had my foot on the brake, toggled the switch and then it stayed off all the way back to my Dad's house (about 10 miles). I thought maybe the problem corrected itself but I restarted the car and it started wiping again.
I called OnStar again this morning but their diagnosis of the computer systems would not include the wipers - no info on any of the wipers from that angle but they sure had a list of computer systems on the car it would diagnose. The local Buick dealer would not have been able to look at it until Monday so I decided to pull the fuse. It is a 20A fuse located in the Instrument Panel fuse block (not the fuse block under the hood) that is on the passenger side underneath the glove box on the right side wall. You do not have to take the complete plastic panel off the bottom; the right side will open like a door but you will have to force it because it rubs the firewall side and then you have a problem getting it relatched. Also it would be easier to buy a monkey, tie a flashlight on his head, and train him to pull the fuses instead of pulling them yourselves. They are very hard to access and very hard to pull. I was not having much luck with the fuse puller that is included (but it is in the other fuse block) so I got a 9" needlenose plier and was able to pull it. But no more wiper! I will have the dealer from home look at this issue when I get back there, which might be a while. I will update on what they find later. Thanks for the help about the fuse.
