Electrical glitches... Can anyone help with one or all?
I had the headlight/wiper switch panel off of my 88 to fix the wiper switch, and when I put it back together, my dash lights didn't work when the headlights were on. The only way my dash lights will work is if the switch is turned to the dome light position. I haven't been able to take it back apart, but I'm sure there is a bad connection or something. To top it all off, my wipers don't work any better than before! My list of question are... My interval setting doesn't work, and my wipers don't return to their home position when turned off. I went to the junkyard and got another switch, but they do the same thing. Someone told me that there is a relay that might cause the interval setting not to work, but that the motor is the only thing that would prevent them from going to their home position. I have to time it and turn them off, when they are down... I hope I don't have to replace the relay AND the motor! What happened to Quality is Job 1!!! Other electrical glitches include 3rd position on heater fan doesn't work (also replaced with another junkyard switch... Same thing!) dome light works, but little map lights don't (removed it, and maplights work when wired directly to battery) Rear window exterior switch doesn't work, but interior one does... I think that's it for now! Any help with any of these would be greatly appreciated... Oh Yea, all fuses appear to be fine, I don't know of any fusible links though. Thanks... I love machanical work, but chasing electrical bugs drives me insane!!!!
