Default 1981 Wiper motor wiring

I searched and searched. I am sure it is here somewhere. Can someone please help me with a wiring diagram for the wiper motor on a 1981.
Thanks

Default Wiper Wiring

As a follow up to the wiring diagram for the wipers for an 81' model, can anyone tell me the physical location of the wiper controller assembly. It needs replacing, and I haven't been able to find it. Thanks

welcome to my nightmare! I think your 81 is wired up differently than my 78. But i have the pulse module located in the console, the wiper circuit board on the fuse box. See if you have a wire coming out of the fuse buss and follow it down or else start at the switch and trace it from there. I have spend the last 3 days running mine down and still havent isolated the problem yet. I am getting to be an expert at standing on my head and reading upside down!

So what is the problem with your wipers?
Not working at all?
Not working on delay?
Stopping randomly across the windshield?
Starting randomly even when off?

seen them all.

At the present time not working at all! I have ordered a new switch and will try that first. Then the controller module and search out the wiring. If that dosen't work, i'll be looking for some more help. If you or anyone else have any ideas or advise, or have had the same problem PLEASE come forward. THANKS

Check out the ground wire to the motor, it runs over and connects to the starter/ac harness. I had taken the dash apart and half the wiring harness in the car. In the end it was so simple. You can make a jumper wire off the ground from the ww motor to one of the engine grounds to test it. It took me three days to run this down with the help of Dale. You can read my headaches at "elephino" thread.

Thanks, The ground wire will be number one! Then on from there. Dale seems to be the answer guy. I do appreciate his input and knowledge. Thanks Dale, I'll let you know tomorrow if it is working.

Dale, When I checked behind the passenger seat for the control assembly, they were there but unpluged! There are two black covered relays and one silver one behind the seat. Can you tell me what all three are there for? I know one is for the wipers but the others I am searching out .When I reconnected the two black box connectors the wipers started running slowly. When I attemped to turn them off at the switch they did not park and went into delay mode. They respond to increasing the delay speed up or down but will not shut off or park. I made some progress but not fixed yet. Any help as to how to completely fix the problem would be appreciated!!!!

The one closest to the center... Alarm module
Middle... antenna relays
closest to the passenger side.... Wiper controller

Ahh the starting while off problem.

disconnect controller and jumper brown/white(g) to white(h) on the harness.

wipers should run on low or high no delay no washer pump.

Once again Thanks!! I'll try your suggestion in the morning. I can live without the delay portion, but they really need to stop when I want them to. I'll follow up and let you know the results.

Follow up: I jumpered the Brown/white to White and the wipers ran constantly. While I was checking more into the wiring, I found that if I were to push down slightly on the switch **** in the off position the wipers would stop and park. My problem seems to be in the switch! I have one on order and will install it and hopefully it will cure the problem. I''ll let readers know. Thanks
