problem #27

Blazer 4WD

I was driving down the intersate with my 8 month old baby during a rain storm and the wipers just quit, then started back and quit again. There wasn't a convenient place to pull over, and it ended up raining all day, I couldn't just sit there and wait for the rain to stop. This is happening everytime it rains, and I have tried to get information on a recall but everyone tells me that my vehicle is not included in the recall, well, it should be!!

The wiper on this truck stop working at various times when the truck is being driven. This presents a safety hazard since you can not see the road when they do stop. They do return to working condition but it may be 2 minutes later ao an hour later. I had a 1995 S10 pickup truck with the same problem and that was recalled and the defective module replaced. It appears that GM has the same problem with this vehicle but no recall has been issued. Seems to me that GM should be recalling this one also as it is clear they had a defective board in all these cars

Blazer 4WD

We recently purchased this 1996 Blazer and due to it being used we are without warranty. The windshield wipers sometimes do not come on and when they are working they sometimes stop in the midst of a rainstorm. This is extremely dangerous and has caused us on more than one occasion the need to stop driving for our safety and other motorists. The air conditioner is hit and miss just like the wiper, but thank heavens this is not a safety issue only a comfort issue.
