during a recent very cold spell (minus degree temps), my wipers would barely work (very s-l-o-w) and the washers wouldnt work at all - fliud was not frozen however - the pump just wouldnt work.
weather finally warmed up a bit and everything works properly again....but it is going to get colder again soon and trying to spray windex on the windshield thru an open window at 70mph aint my idea of fun....soooo

where should I be looking for problems???
at the switch on the column??
at the electrical connections at the motor and pump???
maybe clean and lube the wiper motor???

Do the guys in alaska have these kinds of problems???? this is a new issue - everything worked fine last winter, even when temps dropped into the minus degrees....

I'm having the same problem on my 78. They work fine in the warmer weather.
