Turned on windshield wipers and windshield washer motor starting spraying cleaner. I tried turning off the wipers and even changing the wiper speeds but the motor keeps trying to spray cleaner. Eventually I ran out of cleaner but you can still hear the motor running when the wipers are on. Pulled over and shut car off, waited 5 minutes and started car again but the washer motor still comes on when I turn on the windshield wipers. This was dangerous as it just flooded my view with wiper fluid. Not sure if wiper washer motor will burn out and cause other electrical issues. MA 10/16/15

The windshield wipers will not turn off. They continue to go. I have to turn off the engine and take the key out of the ignition for them to stop.

Windshield wiper motor will not shut off once turned on. Intermittent does not work at all. Must stop the vehicle, turn off the motor and remove the key from ignition in order to stop the windshield wipers. Everytime the wipers are turned on this happens...everytime. How does someone drive on a freeway having to stop their vehicle everytime they need to turn on a windshield wiper? this defect is on thousands of Cts's...maybe hundreds of thousands of Cadillac according to the website clubs.... and is a $1,000 repair. GM should fix this defect for free. It is extremely dangerous while driving.
