General Motors is to recall nearly 1.77 million pickup trucks, SUVs and vans because of problems with the vehicles' windshield wipers. The recall is an extension of an earlier windshield-wiper recall that GM says has resulted in no fatalities. GM will replace the wiper circuit boards and motor covers in the following vehicles: some 1994-1997 Chevrolet C/K and GMC Sierra trucks; Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban/GMC Yukon SUVs; 1995-97 Chevrolet Astro and GMC Safari vans and Chevrolet/GMC full-size crew cab trucks; and 1996-97 Chevrolet Blazer and GMC Jimmy mid-size SUVs, and Chevrolet S-10, GMC Sierra and Isuzu Hombre compact trucks.
Holy Cow...One of the things that got me to get my Av last week has been the fact that the friggen wipers in my LATE 94 GMC were truly Intermittent....

i could hear the buzz of the wipers but nothing was moving, I would have to pull over and get out and manually start the wipers working then they would be fine againe until i stopped them again...

It was such a pain in the a$$..I will have to stop by the dealership to have them look at it. thanks much

I had this same problem on my 96 chevy z71 truck. They never worked when I needed them.
Had this problem on my 95 1/2 ton...
Found 3 cold solder joints on the board. Resoldered and all was fine.... Next day, I receive a letter from GM on the recall... To late, already fixed it....
Interesting that GM wrote to me, as I was not the original owner of this vehicle... Must be because I registered the Truck on the GM website at myGMCanada.com....
