Windshield Wiper System
The windshield wiper system consists of :
- Windshield wiper motor (17508) (F-type).
- Washer system.
- Windshield wiper control module.
- Turn signal and windshield wiper switch (13K359).
The windshield wiper control module is:
- Located at the instrument panel fuse panel.
The windshield wiper motor is:
- Attached to the cowl top extension (021A36) .
- Connected to windshield wiper mounting arm and pivot shaft (17566) .
The turn signal and windshield wiper switch features a:
- Rotary wiper switch.
- Push type washer actuator.
- Has a two-speed, permanent magnet, three brush electric windshield wiper motor .
- The windshield wiper motor has a brush rigging that permits selection of low or high speed.
- When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the LO position, the common brush and the blue/orange wire brush are used, and the windshield wiper motor operates at low speed.
- When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the HI position, the common brush and the white wire brush are used.
- In HI position, electric current will bypass a portion of the armature winding causing the windshield wiper motor to operate faster.
- When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is moved to the OFF position, the windshield wiper motor will continue at low speed until the park switch outer contacts open.
- When the park switch contacts open, the windshield wiper motor stops in the park position.
When the turn signal and windshield wiper switch is in the interval position:
- The wipers make single wipes separated by pauses.
- The rotary switch is on the end of turn signal and windshield wiper switch .
- The length of the pause can be set from approximately 1 to 17 seconds.
- Length of pause decreases as the rotary switch is rotated away from off.
- Length of pause increases as the rotary switch is rotated toward off.
While in the interval wiper mode:
- It is normal to hear a slight click at the beginning of each on/pause cycle.
NOTE: When using interval wipers, the first wipe may not occur until after a pause of up to 17 seconds.
