July 17, the front window wipers and window washer of my 2006 Trailblazer started turning on automatically (when I start the 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer, the wipers and washer fluid start and will not stop until the Trailblazer is turned off). I can not drive the Trailblazer with the wiper always on. The front windshield wipers and window fluid will not stop unless I turn off the vehicle. The vehicle is extremely dangerous to operate !!! this occurs when the vehicle is stationary, in motion, on the street, turning, braking , etc.

The abs light has come on and then it would work sometimes and not other times. Now it never works. Now that its winter I'm sliding at stop signs that aren't even that slippery. The actuators in the heating and cooling are not working properly. All summer I had heat blowing all the time and suddenly there would be nothing. Now it's cold air all the time. Makes my windows fog up and not defrost. I have done the reset procedure and hear things moving but it doesn't fix it. The blower in the ball seat and third row is hit or miss for even working at all.

Windshield wiper working incorrectly. On any of the low wipes, it might wipe and it might not. On high it will work sometimes and sometimes it works like it is on low (intermittent) and slow, and sometimes it acts like it's not going to work at all. My vehicle was in motion when this happened and now it is on-going. Appointment this wed. , 10/26/16 to have it looked at and fixed. I'm afraid I will get caught in the rain when I really need them and I might have wipers and I might not.

Failure Date: 08/24/2016

My wife and I bought a used 2006 chevy trail blazer. After two months the windshield wipers would turn on even though the switch was off. The windshield wiper fluid pump would turn on and spray fluid on the windshield which greatly reduced visibility. After a week I took the vehicle to my local garage. They replaced the multi-function switch. This didn't fix the issue, so they replaced the wiper assembly. This fixed the issue for about three weeks and now I am going to have to take my vehicle back and have the assembly replaced again. This happens at random traveling down the roadway at random speeds. This issue needs to be addressed before someone is killed. Not after a reported death!.

The issue is with the windshield wipers. They intermittently turn on and off, spraying washer fluid, regardless of the switch setting. The wipers will come on and spray washer fluid within the first minute of starting the vehicle, and will turn themselves off when in use, or go into a continuous spray mode when being used, causing visibility to be nonexistent. When the fuse was pulled to prevent further scratching to the windshield for a temporary reprieve, the wipers continued to go, with no change. The vehicle currently has less than 135,000 miles. The issue first started the first week of November 2015 and has progressed since then. It began with one swipe of the wipers just after the vehicle was started and has turned into an issue during all driving conditions.
