They have a recall for trucks made from Aug 1994-May 1996.. my truck was made in July 1996. It has the exact same problems as my 1996 S-10 which was covered under the recall. Windshield wipers do not operate all the time or when they do operate they are sporadic. Very annoying especially in bad weather.

The problem I am having is the windshield wipers stop without warning, sometimes they restart and sometimes you must stop the vehicle and pull on them. This causes them to restart for an intermittent amount of time. This problem is addressed by NHTSA campaigh id number: 98V150000 and 98V150001. Due to the fact my vehicle was manufactured in June 1996, it is not covered only vehicles produced Aug. 1994 to May 1996. I have the same problem but due to the fact mine was made in June and not may it is not covered.
