    When my wipers are on the high setting, they go the same speed as on the low setting. Is the problem in the motor or in the switch itself? We're starting to get some heavy showers here, and driving with only low isn't much fun. Thanks

    As soon as I get the next round of goodies thrown at PI its gonna be AWN!

    Blanton road....I KNOW I have been on that road, where is it? Are you talking about 41 that goes by PHCC? Yeah thats gotta be it. And yeah that road SUX when it rains. It holds at the bottom of the hills and rushes down the sides of the road in a good down pour.

    Yep, thats the road. I got stuck driving home in the big rainstorm we had about 1 today. I live out by the Sertoma Youth Ranch, so its quite a drive.

    There is a test you can do to see if it is the wiper motor. I wish I had a copy of the clymer manual from which I remember this...

    Get a long wire or voltmeter probe and find a good ground connection near the wiper motor. On the bottom electrical connector to the wiper motor (3 wires going into it), as I recall the middle one when grounded should turn on the motor in normal speed. Grounding the rightmost one should put the motor into highspeed mode. If grounding the high speed one just produces regular speed then it's your motor.

    Note that to ground them you leave the connector still attached to the wiper motor and sneak the ground wire in from the back of the connector.

    You'll find more info on solving wiper problems if you do a search in this forum.
