I have a '67 dart 270. The wiper switch is either messed up or the wrong one (many components on this car were replaced, not sure if it is the original switch, looks to have been swapped out previously). How do I know if my wipers are supposed to have a 2 speed or 3 speed setup? The switch on there now appears to have two speeds, but it doesn't return to the right spot. Does that mean it's the wrong switch or that it is bad? How do I determine what setup I have, part numbers on the wiper motor arms?

thanks all,

Brian

Well, the park problem could likely be a faulty ground. Make absolutely certain that the switch and the wiper motor are solidly grounded.

I would confirm what Matt said, first.

The two styles of mopar wiper motors are pretty easy to spot... the 2 speed motor, extends from the firewall and is about the size of a beer can
(the late ones are typically painted black). The Variable speed motor is flat and the motor is at a 90 degree angle off the transmission housing.


3DSpeed/Variable



2 Speed

You will have to confirm the switch you have to match the motor and wiring harness.

Great, I'll check the ground. Pretty sure I have the 2 spd, but will check. If those check out, on to the switch...
