Known Issue with Wiper Failure?
A good friend of mine has a '94 Chevy S10 x-tra cab 2wd w/4.3L V6. The wipers often fail at random and will refuse to work until the truck is shut off and restarted. This usually "fixes" it and the wipers start working again. She's replaced the motor 3 times (with used units from the salvage yard), she's cleaned the contacts, and cleaned the motor itself to make sure everything was clean. The problem never seemed to go away. Is there a known issue/recall with the wipers on these trucks? I've always owned Toyotas and am not very familiar with Chevy's but figured I'd ask here first before I start digging in to this. Another friend of mine has a full-size chevy 4x4 of about the same year and his does the same thing. The wipers fail at random. For both vehicles, the wipers can stop anywhere in their path of travel, not just in the "off" position at the bottom of the windshield.
