The windshield wipers do not work. I checked fuse in drivers side fuse panel it is good. Checked in engine compartment fuse and relay both are good. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check to see if there is power to the motor. If there is, the motor is bad. If there is no power, you need to trace the wiring back to see where it is lost.

I checked motor it is operational. I am thinking it is the switch on the steering column. How do I check this and if it is bad how hard is it to change? I heard you have to take apart the whole steering column? Any help is greatly appreciated. Is there anywhere I can get a wiring diagram for this?

You need to remove the steering wheel and part of the steering column to access the switch. Since you have an airbag, I recommend having a certified tech do it, but if you cannot, make sure to disconnect the battery at least thirty minutes prior to working around the airbag. Remove the steering wheel (you will need a steering wheel puller). Once it is removed, you should have access to the switch assembly. Check for power in to the switch and out. If there is power in and not out, the switch is bad.

Lately my intermittent wipers have decided to work intermittently! I live in the Seattle area and you can imagine how important this is to me. :) One day they will work and then suddenly will stop and only will work on super high and I have to time it just right to stop them or the blades stop in the middle of my windshield! Very frustrating. Do you think there is a short somewhere in the control module?
