Re: windshield wiper motor failure on my 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer. I was informed that a recall was issued last year on S-10S for wiper motor failure, that you had to have the vehicle with less than 70,000 miles on it. I had 72,000 miles, therefore did not qualify for a recall. Since that time I have been having more and more trouble with the wipers quitting in time of rain and other times. I think GM should replace them no matter what the mileage is. It is becoming very hazardous these days, not knowing when they will work or not. Many times I have to get out of my vehicle and get under the hood and jiggle the wires to the motor, which is very annoying. I bought my vehicle new in 97 and was well pleased until this happened. I have come close to having accidents in the rain when they fail. Thank you.
