    My wipers quit working yesterday. They stopped in the regular off position (all the way down)
    Any clues where to start troubleshooting , and how?
    I checked the fuses and they are OK. Thanks for any help!

    I would start by rechecking fuses. they tend to corrode. clean the contacts well, scrape them with something. wiper motor is tricky. there is power going to it all the time. the switch grounds the motor to complete the circuit. That's the way it was in my camaro, haven't disected the one in my truck yet. someone correct me if i am wrong.

    The switch itself in my 70 went bad. Might try cleaning it first(the switch) before replacing.
