I had that happen shortly after I got my car and the problem just went away. On a seperate ocasion I did find that one of the nuts that holds the wiper arm on was loose and it looked like it was being eratic, went away after tightening. (pop the cover off and tighten it down (do this with the wipers in the down position)

nope it still does it, i find it very annoying but have yet to do something about it because it doesn't happen ALL the time. I should check it out though. I was leaning towards the wiper motor because of the way it catches and jump and then sometimes just stops working in one spot, but i'm not sure.

Mine does the same thing, only when it is below 40 degrees though. Not sure what it could be...

well im stilll going to check to see if the nut holding the arm might be loose, but i highly doubt thats causing the problem, since my car is still under warrenty, im going to get it check out becasue i use the delay feature alot and it drives me crazy how it jumps around all the time

I'm having the same prob. It does seem to be worse when its below 40 degres.
I thought maybe the rubber on the wiper arm is getting dry, but that dont seem to be it. Could it be something wrong with the intermittent control??

If yall figure it out let me know


Peace,
Mac

Did anybody ever figure out what was causing this problem? I had the exact same thing happen on the way to work this morning and it was very irritating...
