Power to the wiper motor does not go through the switch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's turned on by the ignition switch. The wiper switch simply selects paths to ground, one through a resistance for slow speed and one directly to ground for high speed and an off position.

  There should be 12v on the Blue/Red stripe wire to the wiper motor any time the ignition is on.


Check the Blue/Red wire on the wiper motor first.
