WINDSHIELD WIPER SPEEDS

1994 Toyota Camry

Electrical problem
1994 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 143000 miles

My wipers only work on high speed and off possitions
The other wiper possitions work very rarely and very briefly then quit. But allways on high and off.
The washer motor works fine too.
The only time the blades PARK is when I apply the off possition. This car runs great otherwise, but the auto door lock button on driver side only works when driver door is either closed or open no more than 1 ft.

Thank you, Tom Faciana

If this works out I'll become a frequent and perminant member.

FRONT WIPER SWITCH TEST
With wiper switch in specified position, ensure continuity exists between terminals listed. See WIPER SWITCH CONTINUITY TEST table. See Fig. 2 . Replace wiper switch assembly if continuity is not as specified.

FRONT WIPER MOTOR TEST
Using 12-volt battery, connect jumper wire from positive battery terminal to wiper motor terminal No. 2. See Fig. 1 . Connect another jumper wire between negative battery terminal and wiper motor body or motor ground wire location at mounting bolt hole. Motor should operate at low speed.
Remove jumper wire from terminal No. 2. Reconnect jumper wire to wiper motor terminal No. 1. Motor should operate at high speed. Remove jumper wire from terminal No. 1 and reconnect jumper wire to wiper motor terminal No. 2. With motor running at low speed, stop motor at any position except PARK position by disconnecting jumper wire from terminal No. 2. Install another jumper wire between wiper motor terminals No. 2 and 3.
Ensure motor body ground is still connected to negative battery terminal. Connect positive battery terminal jumper wire to wiper motor terminal No. 4. Motor should start running and then stop at PARK position. Replace motor if operation is not as described.
