    Ok my wipers ghost wipe sometimes. I have a new switch and a new motor with washer pump and it still does it. Any fix for it?

    What situation do they ghost-wipe???
    Mine do it when hitting pot-holes, hard off-roading or just punshing the dashboard.
    If you don't like it, have a look for loose wires or use other switch than tiny stock.

    2 things....turn on wipers and spray Castrol's Super Clean on the windshield...cleans it like nothing else.
    Second, I just bent the wiper arm a bit more to put more pressure on the window and it all went away...

    THE PROBLEN IS IN THE MOTOR. IT WAS A GM DEFECT THAT WAS NEVER CORRECTED. THE MOTOR REGULATOR TRIPS DUE TO POOR INSTALLATION. A LOT OF GM TRUCKS HAD THIS DEFECT.
