ahhhh ya there is
GOOD LUCK ON THE RELAY, THERE ISN'T ONE, IT IS PART OF THE GEM MODULE, AKA LIGHTING CONTROL MODULE.
Hummmm, so you replaced the wiper motor with a new one, and also the "multi function" switch….the black or chrome lever that operates the wipers and the turn signals…correct? That lever/switch is the most common failure for this problem that I have seen.
If you have replaced both of those, have your mechanic check to see if you have an "intermittent wiper governor". This part is about half the size of a cigarette box and just plugs into the wire harness for the wipers. Look under the left knee area of the driver side dashboard and follow the wire harness from the steering column going to the wiper motor. There should be this box plugged into the wire harness within that section of wires.
Some models had this governor, some do not….so you will have to check to see if yours is equipped with it or not. Your mechanic should be able to tell you this. We have replaced a few of these governors over the years, usually for the intermittent part of the wiper not working…but it COULD be the problem in this case
