Re: Intermittent wipers
This is what I've done to my '85 CJ7. I went to the junkyard and found a Grand Wagoneer that had intermittent wipers. I bought the wiper switch and the black box, which is up under the dash, for a few dollars. Everything just unplugs from the wiper motor under the dash. The plug is round in shape and I don't remember how many wires there are. The switch looks just like the non-intermittent switch.
Now, how do you tell if the donor vehicle has intermittent wipers? Turn the wiper switch to the left and you'll feel the reostat sliding. A non-intermittent system won't turn to the left at all.
I've also seen intermittent systems on Eagles and other AMC vehicles that will work. The way I understand it, AMC used many of their same parts in many different models to cut down on expenses.
I'm not sure what year these started to what year they ended. Hope this helps. This is a cool BBS, I've just found it today
