Wiper question
« on: June 22, 2012, 08:55:17 PM »
Hey guys,
 
Just got me a 1980 Pinto Runabout & have some questions about my wipers. When I turn on the switch it seems to work a little but then will stop dead on the windshield. Sometimes if I move the switch from one speed to the other they will start working, other times they won't. Is this a sign of a bad switch or wiper motor? Don't wanna be driving the car & it start raining, only not to be able to see due to no wipers.
 
Thanks for any help in advance!

Matt operate switch numerous times it should start working okay. I have a lot of those because they have been un used for long periods. And if all else fails I will sell you a switch.   Fred    :)
