Need to locate and replace windshield wiper switch

My windshield wipers work fine most of the time, but occasionally will only go really fast and will not shut off, or stop working for no reason.....so I'm guessing the switch is sticking/going bad. How do I get inside the steering column to remove and replace the switch?

    Barbiedoll If you go to Auto Zone website and search your car make, model and wiper switch. They sometimes have the instructions on how to replace it. Otherwise if you go to the store they normally will help you.

What would cause the windshield wipers on my recently purchased Jeep Patriot Sport work on every speed except the high speed. High speed doesn't work at all.


The intermittent switch has a bad contact in it for the high speed, i would say, most likely will have to replace it.

Would need to scan vehicle to insure the wiper speeds are controlled by the General Module or a wiper intermittent relay....if relay...would locate and replace...if general module.....a reprogram or software update could be in order...possibly replacement.

I have a 2004 Ford Focus window won't go down / wiper problem


As far as the window goes, it sounds like your switch is going bad. If you continue to use as it is, the switch will keep getting worse and worse until eventually it doesn't work at all. So you will need to take the inner door panel off and replace the switch. Then the windshield wipers, sounds like a similar problem. However, this time, only part of the electronics are not working properly, but unfortunately you will have to change the whole thing also. The wiper switch is a little more complicated, so if you are not fully familiar with it, you would be better off to take it to someone who is.
