... was there snow build up on them? I was thinking maybe the wipers got too heavy and heated the motor up causing it to shut down and when it cooled off it started back up *SHRUG* ... I really have no idea, just grasping at straws

You should report that problem to Transport Canada so they can log it and see if it's a common problem with the G6. Might help expedite a recall if necessary...

Kind of an old thread but my 2 cents

Likely your wife had wipers in the delay setting when this happened?

This might indicate an intermittent wiring connection with what is known as the Wiper "Park" switch. Or problem with the Park switch itself in the wiper motor assembly. More likely the later.

What happens is that when in delay mode the wiper system tries to command a single wipe of the blades. The "Park" switch tells the computer when the wipe cycle is complete.

I guess GM Oshawa is where the GM Technical Assistance folks for GM of Canada are, right? Those are the right ones to help dealer

I had the same problem in my g6 during a storm. It turns out that the bolts to the wiper arms were not tight so when they met any kind of resistance they got stuck, usally right at the middle of the windsheild. They tightened them about a half turn each and I have not had that problem since

Mine did this the other day after having them on for an entire 3 hour drive in rain/snow. I figured the motor was overheated (which shouldn't happen) I just turned them on and off again each time it occured.
