Default Re: 1997 saturn sl1 windshield wiper problem

Could be some of the integral resistors/contacts on the control stalk switch are toast, or it could be the relay/controller that's integral with the wiper motor. This motor-resident controller reads the voltage from the control stalk wire and decides what wiping to do -- intermittent, regular, fast, based on the voltage.

Anyone have some quick ideas on how best to narrow down the problem to one component or other????

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
