    half-way there, I think.
    Title says it all. Well, my car is definatly a fair weather vehicle now. The wipers/washer has quit working on the Outlaw. I replaced the multi function switch, since it's always been a little flakey no dice. So I'm thinking the wiper control module is bad, but I have no clue what it looks like or where it might be.

    Thanks in advance!!

    The Wiper Control Module is located under/behind the center of the dash, on the the left-hand side of the vertical dash-support brace.

    Found it!! I wasn't sure it was it, until I found a web page that shows exactly were it is. The bracket in the diagram is hidden from below by the warning chime. Find the warning chime and you have found all the other relays.

    Open this for a great exploded view of the module location.

    Edit: I replaced the module with one I picked up at the local Salvage Yard, everything works now.

    I just joined this forum and hoping to find a resolve for my problem I am having with my 1987 Ford Thunderbird. It has intermittent wiper function. My wipers come on and it appears the delay is working however with the wiper switch in the off position I can hear a constant buzzing noise coming from underneath the dash as though it is coming from the module. The buzzing noise never stops, as soon as I turn the car on the buzzing will begin and not stop until I turn the key to off. Any ideas?
