Has anyone ever tried putting Park Avenue/Bonneville/Aurora turn stalks on the 95-99 Riv?

My '96 had a reman NAPA wiper motor before, now I put in an O Reilly's wiper motor, not helping. My intermittent function is glitchy, so I stopped using that. But the low/high speed is also affected by the glitchy stalk. The turn signal and cruise works fine though.

Mostly the wipers worked fine, but sometimes it would stop working and stuck in the middle, wouldn't retract to the off position either. I'll have to wait for couple minutes for it to cool down, and it would work again after 4-5 minutes. This is a safety hazard in the rain or snow.

The junkyard turn stalks for the Rivieras are really expensive and worn out, I am not gonna trust them either.

Electrically speaking, does the turn stalk from 97-05 Park Avenue uses the same computer programming and signal? It has a different parts number and shape for sure, but is there any chance I can fit it in the Riviera, it would be a relief.

I think if that were possible, everyone would do it. Here is the thread on the multifunction switch, read through it, maybe someone discovered an option,

I've got the very same problem. I played with several wiper motors before I realized that my problem most likely is in the multifunctional switch, aka turn stalk. In my case I could get either intermitted function OR washer ) I ended up installing a separate button for the washer. It is acceptable to some extend, but I definitely want to restore factory functionality of the system.

There is a 95 Riviera at the LKQ salvage yard in Daytona that may still have the switch

Need to know before I spend a wad for nothing.
Thanks!

Over $500?! Putting turn stalks from other GM cars 1f629

At that price I can't believe every MF switch isn't stripped as soon as a Riviera touches a yard!

No, just the parts desk at your local GM dealer.

Thanks, Larry.
Turns out the part I was going for didn't exist, anyway. Inventory error.
