This is usually a problem in the turn stalk. The usual fix is to replace the entire unit which is called the MFS for multi function switch.

The process for replacing this switch is to disconnect the NEG cable of the battery and turn the Ignition switch to RUN or ACC position. At the bottom of Ignition switch there is a spring loaded pin which is accessible from a hole in the plastic cover of the steering column. Use a drill bit or small pin to press on the spring loaded pin in the Ignition switch.

When you pull up with the Ignition key, the lock cylinder should slide out. This is necessary to remove the chrome Ignition key flange to allow the column cover to slide apart. There are about 4 additional screws holding the column cover together. You will have to move the tilt in the column back and forth to wiggle the column cover free.

The MFS is secured with 2 screws with recessed Torx heads. There are several connectors with delicate clips to unfasten. You change out the old for new parts and then reinstall by reversing the above instructions.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. The MFS part runs $85 to $160 depending on the supplier. With the changing of this switch you will also gain new components for your turn signals contained within the unit.

How do I fix the speed of my windshield wipers, they only work on high speed and I have replaced the windshield wiper motor and that did not help?


In that year they used a wiper control module and the switch to control speeds and delay interval. The part is obsolete at the ford dealer and you may have to resort to salvage yard for part.

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.

Wind shield wipers not working


First check the fuse box under the hood for a blown or poorly connected fuse. Next, find the wires going to the wiper switch and check for power when you turn the switch on. Finally, if there is power everywhere you checked, go directly to the motor and check it for getting power. Also check the ground wires for this device. If no ground...no action!

Wipers stop after 5 minutes of slow or intermiant speed use.


Try replacing the Wiper Motor Pulse Board Module. It is available at aftermarket parts stores, it is easy to replace, and it is a high failure item. Eventually, the module will fail completely and leave you with no wipers.
