    i'd check around, but down here (texas), they just have to work period. i'd call somewhere else and ask them. however, i'm sure you want to fix them. i'd start with the switch.

    The windshield wipers with delay and multiple speeds have a relay box that handles everything but the full speed, check it if it's defective replace it.
    I will try and find out in your truck where it would be and get back to you on this. I hope I can find it in the haynes, that's all I have.

    It's likely going to be right around the ignition switch at the base of the column. Thats where mine is, and I've got the same wiring for the wipers that the truck in question does.

    Not sure how many times GM hanged the design, (I've seen smaller ones) my "delay box" is about 2.5"w X 4"l, with aluminum "fins" (heatsink) on one side. Wiring plug on both ends of the box. Both have locking connectors, so if you find it, don't break it : )
