Wipers fail to operate at times.I contacted Chevrolet and was told there was no recall on these. My 1995 chev. 2500pu has the same problem, no recall. My brother has a 1995 chev. 2500pu with the same problem, no recall. My dad has A1994 chev.pu with the same problem, no recall. My other brother has a 1996 chev 2500pu with the same problem, no recall according to Chevrolet on these vehicles. This is a safety issue that in my oppinion warrants a recall. Thank you, chris.
