HELP! 

Driving today in this wonderful spring snow, my windshield wipers won't shut off (talk about the Chinese Torture Test, ugh).

I found this thread on Chevey Avalanche Fan Club:  http://www.chevyavalanchefanclub.com/cafcna/index.php/topic,65883.0.html

Are you serious?  $200.00 to fix this?  *gag*.   Any ideas?  Does anyone have "connections" to get this part?   Because of the snow, we have all day tomorrow to get parts and work on this, but I was hoping one of you brilliant people had an easier, and cheaper, fix for me?

Sucks to be you!
Just kidding, if It were mine, I would make sure you know what part number you need...very important to do before you go to this site:
because they dont give returns, and they dont/cant confirm what part you need. However there prices with shipping kicks the crap out of any dealer here. Maybe your dealer in Denver will match the price if you show them this, but mine wouldnt. You could give it a try. Im not sure if this counts as my connection or not but
 
Thats what I would do...Chadstr

It does suck to be me!  We can't get the windshield wipers off!

I think we might have to ask all of your assistance tomorrow, OK?

Thanks again to Mark for letting us invade his shop today!  I've got a personal MOD GTG record of 3 mods done to day.  Thanks to Mark and his guy for tinting my windows and thanks to Chad for the great Avalanche plate for my cubby and for the help with wiring up the LOF!  I'll download and post some pictures later tonight.
