Beginning in November of 1999, the windshield wipers didn't always work. At first, I thought it was just a fluke. After the initial failure, they worked fine for some time. We had the vehicle in for another problem, and service man told us there had been no problems with the wipers. Since that time, it has become more frequent. It intermittenly works. Somedays, it works every time, somedays some of the time, and other days, none of the time. Yesterday, in the rain, driving all over nashville, tn, it would not work at all, no matter how many times I tried it. Today, when I got in the car, I tried it just for the heck of it, and they worked. My husband knows several people who have 95 and 96 model S-10 Blazer, who have had theirs replaced free of charge, it was called a campain. When we have asked, we have been told there are no recalls for our vehicle. I found a recall no. 98V150, and sounds an awful lot like our problem. Please advise.

Windshield wipers suddenly stopped working during use. This has happened numerous times which could lead to a serious accident. This problem is very common on 1994, 1995, and 1996 Blazer. GM recalled them in Canada but not in the U.S.

Windshield wipers work when they want to work. This has been recalled on vehicles that were made August 1994 through May 1996. My vehicle was made in July 1996 and has the same wiper trouble as the NHTSA campaign id# 98V150001 which is manufacturers campaign #98043.I have talked with dealer about this safty hazard, but since it is not on the recall list, they do not want to repair it. Thank you.

Whenever windshield wipers are in use they would cut off by themselves. Would need to get out and jiggle them. Sometimes, they come on by themselves. Problem is intermittent.

Windshield wipers only work occasionally.....usually when it's raining, they don't work. Contacted Chevrolet because we saw that the 1996 Blazer wipers were recalled....they said our Blazer is a week of of the recall VIN #'s., and since we haven't gotten int an accident, they won't do anything.

When driving in rainy weather conditions when windshield wipers are needed, windshield wipers are inoperable, causing poor driver's visibility. Also, recall 98V150000/ manufacturer's recall 98043 dealt with same issue. Dealer and manufacturer stated that this vehicle was not included in the recall due to VIN.

While driving on the highway at 65mph during rain, the wipers began to fail. The fisrt time it happened they paused slightly then began to operate after a short moment. The second time while driving on the highway at 60mph they paused then started again and then they stopped all together. I pulled over on the road and after awhile they started again but only in the fastest mode. I then began to return home when the wiper failed completely. I was on the highway during a steady rain. I was nearly involved in an accident trying to pull over to the side. I waited for about 20 mins and then they started again. I had to repeat this once more before reaching my home. I immediately took the truck for repairs. The dealer replaiced the circuit board and cover. The same item was recalled in 1998. Your recal id# (98vi50001). I paid $132 for repairs. I was told that this recall did not cover my vehicle because it was manufactured 8/96. The recall only covered vehicles from 8/94 to 5/96. Please add this complaint to your files. I feel that I should not have been billed for a defect that was recalled only 3 months prior to my trucks production. The identical defect was found and the condition could have cost me and my family our lives. Something as important as wiper failure should not be taken lightly. The recall should be extended before lives are taken. I have contacted Chevrolet and GMC and was told that my vehicle is not covered. Anything you can do would be appreciated. Thankyou.

Failure of windshield wipers during rain, found other 1996 S-10 Blazer under recall 98V150000 had problem corrected free of charge. Told my vehicle not one of these, noticed numerous complaints on your data base of other owners 1996 Blazer same failure. This failure only occurs during rain which causes safety problem. Did not know problem existed until failure of my wipers and see no reason why other owners 0F 1996 Blazer are covered and this vehicle isnt, since it is the same year and same problem as owners of recall notice 98V150000 and failure causes vehicle to be unable to be driven during rain or wipers go out in middle of driving which occurred on Sept 1, 2000 almost causing accident.
