Default Wipers don't work.

Windsheild wipers have always given me fits, always thought it was the switch. Sometimes they would go all retard and jerk around and not just make a full sweep. Sometimes they wouldn't work at all until I shut the truck off and on again. Tonight they didn't work at all.
When I got home, after a rough drive I might add, I noticed the voltmeter jumping like crazy even with the switch off and then when I turned the radio off I could hear the relay goin off like an epileptic in a thunderstorm.
I hit the switch some good ones and the pissers worked, still no wipers.
So what do you guys think, switch, relay, wiring?
Any help is appreciated, I'll tear into it tomorrow after school.
Thanks.

I couldn't give you any pointers on this one. You'd have to test each one. Relay could be an easy one, just swap it out with an idential relay. But I'm not sure what '90's had as far as electronics. The wiring could be checked with an ohm meter. And the switch... well, besides swapping it out, you could try using an ohm meter to check that too.

I just read up on the absolutely retarded intermittent wiper module, and it's very retarded.
If it is on the drivers side like the first one I read about it's probably that, if it's in the glove box it might not be. I don't know.
I however think it's just the switch since, the wipers didn't work at all not just the intermittent not working, the pissers worked after a hard hit and the relay clicking and the wipers not moving indicated the relay works and the wipers won't.
I'll check out the switch and motor tomorrow.
Anymore help is still appreciated.

theoretically, if you could hear the relays clicking at all stages on the switch, and the pisser works when the button is pressed, would one think it may be the wiper motor itself? or connections on the motor?

get out that multi-meter
and if you got a buddy with a '90 model and would let you switch out the relay you could eliminate it; the swap will not kill his if he's worried

how bout corroded or loose wire

No one around here drives a bad ass brick haha.
The pissers don't always work, actually rarely thats why I never thought it was the motor, my dad helped me out and beat on the motor while I messed with the switch and that seems to be it, after some solid hits the wipers go and pissers go and then after he quit so did the wipers.
I'll get back to you guys after it's fixed. Thanks.

interesting......

My wipers work on an intermittent basis after running for 10 or 15 minutes. After about 20, they pretty much just quit and I have to switch to delay wipers to get any action. If that fails me, I'll have to beat the motor and see if it works for me too!

Thumbs down Chevy ?

OK GENTS
DONT BEAT ON ELEC MOTORS
RUSSO 2 take the wiper motor OFF take it apart lightly sand the brushes and make sure they move with little effort put a little lube on the bushings and put it back together ..

since you have beat on it look at the magnets real good make sure you didnt crackem if so throw it away and go buy a new motor ..

like joko said get the multi meter out .. dont have one get one 15.00 bucks for a cheapy or 600.00 for a REALLY good one that do everything but
