Wiper Problem

Well, looks like I ran into the windshield wiper problem. After following Haynes advice for the windshield wipers won't turn off, I was still left with the problem. Turns out it is the interval control relay underneath the dash. I'm going to the junkyard after close analysis showed that several makes should have the same relay as the Mustang's relay. If it pans out, I will definately let you all know.

I was thinking it may have been a ground issue, but they say on continuously, so its not the problem. Yes, I am looking at the interval control relay/module underneath the dash.

What was the outcome of this? My wipers will not turn off, they are stuck on low speed, and the delay will not work. It will switch between low and hi but will not do anything else. I have not used the wipers in months or driven the car in over a month. Any help is appreciated. Did it turn out to be the relay? What other cars will swap over?

It is the interval relay behind the fuse panel under the driver's side dash. Ford quoted me $120 for the part, but I went to my local junkyard and purchased one for $10. It is called a wiper governor, and it is a little black box that can fit in your hand. Let me know if you have any more questions. Easy fix!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the info! Did you find one from a Mustang or will other Fords swap over?

I found one from a mustang, but if you have good soldiering skills, modules from crown vics and things will work if you unsoldier the old relay and soldier in a new one. Although they won't hook up and work, both boxes have the exact same relays with the exception that the crown vic one has an extra relay and a slightly differnt designed connector.

How do you tell if this part is bad?
