    Ahhh, good ol' ghost wipers.......:rotfl:

    If you're like most guys, you've got a pinched wire/wires in the harness that goes down your steering column. I did the repair so long ago I can'r even remember the specifics, but I do recall it requiring a spendy harness and a partial dismantle of the column.

    the wipers on the 88+ trucks are VERY different than the older ones. the problem with the '93 is the wiper module 99% of the time. its behind the black plastic plate that is on your wiper motor. what normally happens is that the seal goes bad on the plate, and water gets into the circuit board and shorts it out. then they do all kinds of funny things.

    i get intermittent wipers on my 82 also, funny thing is they wont come on until i get close to the trail and then they start coming on about every 5-10 minutes, sometimes they'll come on right after someone says something like they are agreeing with what was said :)

    Call the chevy parts house and they will likely have the part number memorized for the control board in the wiper motor that is causing this. Same thing happened to my 92 truck, but only when the wife was driving. I thought she was crazy for a while until it happened to me.
