Kinda hard to explain. My washer pump does not work when I turn the stalk on the column. So I checked the wires at the washer pump with the test light. Without anything on except the key on, I get power all the time to the white and pinkw/dark stripe wire at the pump ???. This did work last year. I then had a buddy turn the stalk for the washer on (wipers operate as supposed to) then the test light did really nothing (stayed on no change in dimness or brightness). I then disconnected the wires at the pump. Check them again with test light. Only the pinkw/darkstripe one is hot all the time with the washer switch off?? With the test light just connected to the pinkw/darkstripe wire (unplugged from the pump)and the switch tuned on: the test light will go dark. When I return the washer switch to the off positon the pink/wdarkstripe wire gets power again. The white one is o.k. So Now I know the pump was backfeeding. So then I jumper wired the pump to +12 and ground on the pump terminals. Pump is shot of course. This however still does not explain the wacky +12 on the pink wire all the time. I have a new wiper motor with a new "cover" as well, which I have not put on yet. Does this sound like the cover is shot supplying voltage to that wire all the time. I have a book somewhere of a diagram but cannont find it. Could it also be the wiper switch (the one inside the column) sending power all the time. Thanks. T.J.
