Intermittent wipers work intermittently (broken)
Posted 28 December 2003 - 08:25 PM
Ive beat the switch and it never works, what else controls my wiper motors that could cause this?

pull out the continuity tester and start poking holes in wires, or maybe just change the switch

Thinking that the delay control unit, is above the steering column, towards the center of the dash. It could be your culprit, or it could be the switch. The delay unit has a timer and a relay in it. Haven't had one out/apart, so I don't know if you'd be able to fix it any.
Do the wiper work on low and hi as they should?
Using a Digital Multi-Meter, isn't all that difficult, and they come with instruction for use. Cost varies, but you can get a good one for a small amount of $. A homemade test light can be used in some instances.
You will need a road map (wiring diagram) to the color code of the wiring in order to chase down the various circuits in a vehicle. Someone here on the board has to have one to cover your BRAT.

I'll look through my FSM for that control unit, and try to put the one from my wagon in the brat to see if thats the culprit.
