The motor I had issues with was a fresh rebuild from a major Chevelle parts supplier. The coil was brand new. The coil can be replaced by heating and resoldering 3 or 4 connections. No need to disassemble the whole motor. Do remove from the car. The coil is located behind the washer assembly and under a plastic mounting fixture retained with one screw. The fixture and 3 power tabs should lift out as a unit. TAKE CARE NOT TO BREAK THE RESISTOR that is located below. You will need an old wiper motor for parts. New parts may be available, but I have not researched that. New parts may be the same as was used in my newly purchased rebuilt unit.

Every time I had a weird problem with a wiper motor it turned out it wasn't grounding well.

I had mine on the car and connected directly from the battery to the wiper body with jumper wires and alligator clips. The linked video shows the correct way to bench test your wiper motor. A little crude but very good information.

A big thank you to those that responded to my question. It was the magnetic switch that initiates the parking action that failed on my wiper assembly. The link to the wiper-motor-test video isolated the problem. I then spoke to the new wiper assembly expert, Sam (Mockingbird), who told me what to order and where. Installation took about 10 minutes and everything works as it should.

Thanks again, I couldn’t have done this without the help offered here.
