Having problems with your 1997 Chevrolet K1500 ?
97 chevy PU. Wiper motor buzzing, wipers not working. Is the motor shot or a lose connection?
These use a module bolted onto the front of the motor under the hood, on the driver's side. It's held on by 3 torx head screws and can purchased through cradone for around $35. Common problem on GM vehicles. Did it act up intermittantly prior to stopping? If so, replace the module.
There are I believe, 3 screws that hold the wiper motor to the firewall. Try running a ground wire from your battery negative post to one of those screws. If it works, it was a bad ground. Just run a new ground wire to the wiper motor
