Default 95 SL1 Wipers turn on by themselves

This has been an intermittent problem generally the wipers would cycle for a bit when starting the car. They also would turn on by themselves driving down the road and they may stop anywhere in the stroke. Now the squirts won't work and the wipers don't cycle when trying to use squirts. I'm thinking it's the switch. How much of a pain is it to replace?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It sounds a lot like the "phantom" wiper problem that plagued the Chevy/GMC C/K trucks. My C1500 had similar problems where once in awhile the wipers would suddenly cycle on their own. It was weird because the gauges would act funny and the battery light would glow when it happened, like a real bad short. I think the problem had to do with the circuit board mounted in the wiper motor housing on the trucks not the multi-function switch on the column. I've also heard of this issue happened on other Chevy cars but I can't remember which.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
