SOURCE: Replace Turn signal switch

Fairly simple for average guy. Go or call a local parts store, and ask for a multifunction switch, your VIN number will help them to better ID the right one, cost maybe $80-100. They should be able to show you a diagram as to how it installs, usually just a couple of screws to remove plastic shouds to access the switch, which should have a plug going into it, plug and play.

According to AllData, you don't have to remove the motor to install a new switch. Subsequently, AllData doesn't give direction on wiper arm or motor removal. Here are the only diagrams they give for switch replacement.

Front wipers do not come on except with wiper washers work and so do turn signals and high beams


the wiper motor is a multi speed type that only one circuit can go out or all with out wire diagram is hard to test properly. you have already changed every thing else.

Wiper motor only works on high. I changed the motor, but it still does the same thing.


Hi,
I do not believe the selector switch has a replaceable resistor for speed selection. You can try turning your switch to low speed and testing for voltage signal at the wiper motor. If no voltage, turn to high. If voltage, either bad switch or broken wire in harness. Tilt steering wheel up and down with wiper speed on low. If you get any wiper movement, probably broken / shorted wire in steering column. If not, bad multi function selector switch. Switch is in the $200 range plus labor to replace.
If replacing your self, caution must be used to disconnect the battery and pull the air bag fuse, as steering wheel and air bag assembly must be removed in process and you do not want the air bag to accidently deploy. A great step by step video for replacement is here:

1985 gmc k1500 wipers only move at 1 slow spped, interminttent doesnt work at all. How fast is fast and why is fast not working?


Slow is the same speed as 'mist'. Mist is when you twist the control arm backwards to induce a single swipe. If you hold it, you will run the wipers in low speed. Fast is faster than that. Probably by 30% or more.

Turn the wipers on high speed. Wiggle the connector at the wiper motor. If the wipers run sporadically as you wiggle the connector, you either have a bad connector or a bad circuit board on the wiper motor.

Windshield wipers dont work 2001 audi tt


most likely the wiper signal arm itself if you have tilt wheel over time the wires stretch wear and break causing a short otherwise have a test light handy and with the wipers on position check for power at the wiper ,motor if none is present its the switch if it is present its the motor
