I finally got around to look at my intermittent wiper problem. They would not work unless I pushed the wiper button IN. Also on one trip, I would hit a bump and the wipers would come on. For that particular problem I installed a separate switch to cut off the power to the controller.
As I began wiggling the 4 pin CONTROL connector on the control box, the wipers would work. Upon close examination of the contact pins of the control box, I could see that 2 were leaving “wipe” marks and two were not. A magnifying glass to look at the connector showed that two spring contacts in the connector were non existent.
I looked up the Intellitec Dual Wiper Control box and found that the control cable was available for about $30.00 It was a nice day here yesterday and I decided to go to our local junk yard and see what I could find. I love walking around in junk yards but that is a story for another post. Within a few minutes I found a 4 pin connector with the correct spacing and it looked like it would work with the .040 square pins on the controller box and cut it off. I spliced in the new connector and the wipers now work like new.
