I had the wipers go out on my 94 camaro, I dont know it GM used the same motors for there cars and trucks. I took the motor out and took apart to get to the circuit board, there were 4 or 5 solder joints that were broken/cracked and not making connection. To fix it all I did was solder them back together, and it worked again. I hope this helps you, as I dont know if GM uses the same wiper motors on most of their vehicles.

Saw your message on your Wiper problem.. A bad, or defective wiper module is located in the steering column on ALL Chevy truck's, 4x4's.
The wiper module if bad, or defective must either be repaired, or
replaced, wiper module's vary in price, the cost for a wiper module
on K1500 Chevy Truck's would cost about $250 plus labor cost's done
by a qualified GM Mechanic, no labor cost if you replace the wiper
module yourself.. I have a 89 Chevy Suburban Silverado 4x4 and I had
to replace the windshield wiper module myself 2 year's ago the wipers
quit working, the wiper module's control's both windshield wiper's,
PLUS the windshield washer motor is linked to wiper module wiper modules
operate's both windshield wiper's, a bad, defectrive wiper module can
force wiper's to later quit working altogether, wiper module life span
generally go bad, or become defective in a 7-15 year time span storage_man... The dog gone wiper module's on Chevy Suburban's and K1500
CHEVY truck's, 4x4's are not cheap.. My wiper module cost Me $210 buck's
labor didn't cost Me a cent, since I replaced the wiper module myself...
If you have a buddy who is into working on car's, a car, truck, van, 4x4
vehicle mechanic would be able save you some Buck$ repairing the wiper
module the wires linked to wiper module if they become loose, would pose
major problem's with your K1500 Chevy Truck windshield wiper's bigtime..
You have to remove the steering wheel, remove steering column to get at
the wiper module to repair it, or replace it. it took Me about 30 minutes
to take the bad, defective wiper module out of my 89 Chevy Suburban 4x4
and toss a New Wiper Module in, you can have your Chevy Truck Mechanic
run field test's on your wiper module, wiper module, module's do go bad,
do get defective forces the windshield wiper's to Quit, Stop and Fail...
The Windshield Washer is linked to the wiper module, bad wiper module
defective wiper module will shutdown the Windshield Washer, wiper module
is linked to the Windshield Washer Motor, bad wiper module Kills Power
to wiper's, and windshield washer Motor it's more than just a BUMMER...
I'm an Ace Mechanic myself, I'm a REAL Chevy Suburban 4x4 truck guy,
Smile, I work on a lot of car's, truck's, van's, ALL GM vehicle's, I
have friend's who have K1500 Pickup Truck's, 4x4's always such a pleasure
to see so many Chevy Truck, 4x4 guy's here in the Chevrolet Forum Today.
You live in Arizona, moisture buildup on wiper module wiring harness may
force the wiper's to stall out, time to time. When this happen's I lightly blast the wiper module harness with PB Blaster, you can use
WD-40 very light mists of W-D 40 will remove the moisture buildup on the
wiper module harness, wiper modules linked connected wire's work's Great.
I hope you find this Message to you Helpful and Informtive I worked on
so many Chevy car's, truck's, Van's, Old and NEW I myself Lost Count..
Haha Smile :-)
Take Care, have a Good One Storage_Man
