Hi Alan , I can give that a try, then it would just be the other 2 to connect somewhere

JonB

Well done big dog, that's a good start.

The next thing is to connect the motor through the switch (no parking feature yet)

Connect your live wire from the cars loom (ideally  one that turns off with the ignition switch-usuallly green) to terminal number 4 on the switch.

Connect the red/green to terminal 7 on the switch

Connect the blue to terminal 8 on the switch

Hopefully, with the ignition on the switch will be off, then slow, then fast.

Because you've got the wrong switch we need to prove each step.

Try this tomorrow and report back. If this works we can look at the parking bit

Perfect, I will try it tomorrow, thanks

Bigdog

I have done that and it works, not a massive difference between slow and fast

Mine was like that but with the engine running and alternator charging there is (or should be).

This is the 2 speed wiper motor harness from autosparks, is it worth buying it, it's longer than the one I got and it already has the connections on it

I have now ordered the loom and hopefully the correct switch now

Alan Drover

Which switch are you using?

One that was recommended on here, similar to what I have but an additional prong at no2 to take a connector,

You mean a toggle switch. I wondered if you'd gone for the later combined washer/wiper one.

Evening, apologies for not getting on here sooner.

Great news on finding the correct switch, I couldn't find a way of getting park on your first switch without using a diode.

I notice the autosparks loom also has the correct colours and connectors so it's easy now.

From the new autosparks loom:

Black- earth (ring connector on loom)

Red/green-no.6 on switch

Blue-no.8

Brown/green-no.2

Green-no.4 (note this has a 'piggyback' spade with an exposed 'male' spade.This is where your switched live fits onto so it feeds into the switch and also across to the motor

Hopefully this should see you sorted

(and thanks to others for the switch identification-it's difficult diagnosing remotely, especially when you haven't got those parts yourself, it helped loads 👍)

Thanks jon, I will hopefully have the loom and switch later this week and I will give it a go, hopefully that will be us sorted, thanks to everyone

Bigdog

Wipers now work perfectly, many thanks to everyone
