Intermittent wiper problem
My wipers were a mess. Hi worked, Lo worked sometimes. Intermittent never worked. Sometimes they wouldn't turn off.
Installed a new switch unit. Now Lo and Hi work. They always turn off. But the Intermittent setting always runs at Lo speed.
Maybe the new switch I picked up was defective. Or is there some other component of the system that could cause this?
Intermittents have always ran at low speed, Ford, Chevy, Buick, Cadillac, all run intermittent wipers on low speed, even my rigs run it on low speed. The only car that I have even owned that was slightly different was a Buick Park Avenue, it had moisture sensors so the wipers could run at anytime the sensor detected moisture, but even that was also on low speed.

The problem I have is that they aren't intermittent. They run continuously at the same speed as the Lo setting when I select intermittent.
Then you either have a shorted intermittent module or a wiring problem somewhere in the wiper control circuits.
Thanks Is the intermittent module part of the switch stem?
No that's just the resistor to determine the time differential between strokes, the module is located up under the dash and maybe even labeled, some are black, some are white, and even some are a gold colored metal, all depends on the units manufacture.
