wiper switch

can anyone tell me what the wires are supposed to do on a 69 camaro wiper switch? i have a wiring diagram but i cant tell which one is supposed to activate the washer pump. my wipers function in two speeds but the pump does not engage. im getting 12 volts to the two post that is supposed to activate the silnoid that engages the pump arm....if that makes sense.

Re: wiper switch

Scott, are you referring to two posts on the switch or on the pump solenoid?

Re: wiper switch

Dark Blue - washer pump

Black - wiper low speed

Lt. Blue - wiper high speed (or just not quite as slow as "slow speed")

The wiper switch is on the "ground" side of the circuit

Re: wiper switch

Dark blue is ground and completes the circuit when the washer switch is activated. Yellow is hot when ignition is in acc position.

Re: wiper switch

Ok so I am getting power to the electromagnet and when the button is pushed the ground is created I tried jumping direct bat power and it still won't engage so I assume it's fried what makes me mad is that it's a brand new washer mechanism

Re: wiper switch

Have you checked your grounds on the wiper motor?
