What would cause the wiper delay not to work the switch has been replaced in the column?

The delay system may not have anything to do with the switch. It depends on the manufacturer but the delay system maybe part of the wiper motor assembly...or the delay is sometimes located in a separate module located separately from the control switch.

Does the windshield wiper switch on a 1998 Chrysler town and country contain the delay mechanism or is it a separate unit?

I'm figuring that this is the same as my 1999 town and country, and I just replaced the wiper switch.. It was easy, and it cost 76.00, and it also had NO effect on the operation of the delay in the wipers. Incidentally, I was trying to fix the delay - What my vehicle does is the delay will work about 4 times, then the wipers "jump" slightly, and the delay no longer works. you have to cycle the wiper switch on and off to get them to go again. Good luck!

Why would the delay wipers on a new wiper motor not work on your 1998 Chevy s10?

In my experience it is rarely the wiper motor at fault, it is always a faulty pulse board. Your local auto parts store can sell you an aftermarket pulse board that will outlast the GM original. The pulse board can be easily changed without removing the wiper motor from the vehicle.

In a 94 jeep the wiper delay doesn't work and high and low are very slow also when you shut it off it stops right there?

The wiper motor is well overdue servicing/replacement. The wiper delay works with the self parking contacts and it sounds that they are fouled/worn out. The slow running would suggest worn motor brushes/motor and gearbox bearings/drive rods and bushes. If you can't service the motor yourself, you should be able to pick one up from a breakers or take to an auto electrician who will refurbish or provide an exchange one

What would cause your 93 F250 wipers to stay on you replace the switch and motor. I have changed the switch motor and relay. The intermittant delay does not work. Where is the governor?

It has to be the switch. It is what controls the power to the wiper motor. If the switch is fried again I would check that the relay (or that the fuse is the right amperage) has been fried in the open position somehow. This would allow unchecked voltage to fry its way through your switch to power the motor. I hope this helps you some.

Why would the intermittent wipers not work but low and high speed of the wipers work?

The wiper circuit that controls (in this case that opens the ground circuit of the motor)the motor is staying closed to needs to be open when in delay that the delay circuit can control the opening and closing to ground. OR the delay circuit has an open circuit...burned up capacitor, relay, etc. Or it could be a stuck parking switch...which should open on in park mode...however the wipers would stay on until you turned off the wiper switch. Also, old cars up to 1980 or so...used ground type switches whereas new cars use powered switches and relays to latch the motor to ground.

In many cars, there is only a single wiper motor. One wiper arm is attached directly to the wiper motor and the other through a linkage. If one is working, the motor is operating but the connection to the other may be broken.
