Intermittent wipers

Post by ian65 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 7:06 pm

I'm sure we've probably covered this in the past but................................
The intermittent setting on my wipers doesn't work.... wipers don't work at all on this setting..... any thoughts.... the switch? where's the relay? Is anything built into the motor?

I seem to recall a relay (which I found when I changed my Dash) underneath the speedo was for the Intermittent wiper setting, I believe it had about 5/6 wires connected......................mind you I have had a few sleeps since then so it might be for something else :roll:

was it actually attached to the cluster or fastened underneath to the dash somehow?

I think it was attached to the frame, certainly not the cluster, near the 2 screws underneath that attach to the cluster and are sod to get at I think.........possibly near the Flasher relay? It must be lower than I thought as I can see it in picture :?:
