I recently bought a 69 with numerous small problems. I fixed most of them, but the windshield wiper has me stumped. The door opens and closes fine, but the wipers don't budge. I installed a new switch and I have power across the fuse. I want to check for power at the motor, but I am afraid to just start sticking my test lamp on terminals and short something out. Does anyone have advise on which terminals are what on this motor ? I appreciate your input.
First thing to check is the wiper override switch. It is located under the steering column, right between the vacuum pull down switches that override the wiper door and headlights. The **** should be roundish (it has flat spots aound it). If this is off, the wipers will not work. If the switch is missing, find the plug for it and jumper the terminals. This switch is made so you can stop the wipers in mid swing and change the blades.
