Wiper switch and washer switch

FRONT

The windshield wiper and washer switches are mounted on the right side of the steering column (Fig. 1). The switch stalk is moved up or down to select the wiper switch mode, and pulled towards the steering wheel to activate the washer system. An intermittent wipe system control knob on the end of the switch stalk is rotated to select the desired delay interval. The windshield wiper and washer switch contains circuitry for the following functions:

  •  Windshield wipers
  •  Intermittent wiper delay relay control and logic
  •  Intermittent wipe relay
  •  Windshield washers.

The windshield wiper and washer switch cannot be repaired. If any function of the switch is faulty, or if the switch is damaged, the entire switch unit must be replaced.

REAR The single two-function rear wiper and washer switch is installed in the instrument panel accessory switch bezel, which is located near the bottom of the instrument panel center bezel area, below the heater and air conditioner controls. The rear wiper and washer switch controls the rear wiper and washer functions.

The toggle-type switch features a detent in the On position, and a momentary Wash position. The rear wiper and washer switch also has an integral illumination lamp with a serviceable bulb. The switch knob is pushed down to its detent to activate the rear wiper system, and down again to the momentary position to activate the rear washer system. Both the rear wiper and rear washer motors will operate continuously for as long as the switch is held in the momentary Wash position.

The rear wiper and washer switch cannot be repaired and, if faulty or damaged, the entire switch unit must be replaced.
