wipers come on intermittantly even with wiper switch in off position---where is the relay/controller for the wipers located? Somewhere in the dashboard?
I have dismantled one of these dashes before to replace a heater core but I don't know which relay is the one I need to replace

Hello Again..

If the relay its good I would check the GEM (generic Electronic Module) because all of the wipers functions are controlled by that.

The GEM is located behind center of instrument panel.
