Visibility — Windshield Wiper/Washer

Summary
Certain sport utility vehicles have windshield wiper systems that will not turn on, cease operation while in use, fail to turn off/on by themselves (moisture sensitive wiper system), or have continuous windshield washer pump operation because the presence of water within the wiper modules can either cause a short circuit or can lead to the corrosion of components within the module.
Actions
Dealers will cover the windshield wiper module vent hole with a patch. Also, the wiper motor, circuit board, and electrical connector will be inspected to signs of water intrusion and/or corrosion and be replaced as required. The recall began July 6, 2004. Owners should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438; Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537; or GMC at 1-866-996-9463.
