    wiper switch

    I am about to replace my wiper/washer delay switch for the 3rd time on my '88 Fleetwood Brougham. Obviously something is making these switches go. Unless I keep getting bad switches which I doubt. They always work for a while. Any thoughts? Thanks John

    Re: wiper switch

    It was common for the circuit board on the wiper motor to fail. Cracked solder joints. My 84 would not swipe 3 times on wash mode, replaced the circuit board and that fixed it. With the plastic wiper motor cover snapped off, the board attaches with a couple of screws and a wire connector. Easy to swap out!

    Re: wiper switch

    awesome...sounds simple enough. where do you guys go for parts like this? I have a GN and there are a bunch of online vendors that specialize in Turbo Regals. There must be people that deal in Caddys. Any suggestions? Or do I just try Autozone... Thanks

    Re: wiper switch

    My wiper blades turn-on randomly in any position I have the control level. I have a 2004 CTS. I have replaced the Wiper Relay Module, but still have the problem.
    Any suggestions from anyone?
