That is kind of strange.........isn't it.
To better assist you what is your engine size in liter and the 8th digit of your VIN.
Okay, your model does have a CTM......Central Timer Module. The function though is it regulates the wipers according to the speed you are traveling from what I can see and when the wiper switch is activated, the CTM receives a signal from the wiper switch and activates the wiper high/low relay, wiper run/park relay or washer pump relay.
It is located behind the center of the instrument panel.
Let's check a few other things first though if that is okay.
Please go to Auto Zone (AZ) or O'Reilly's (OR) and for FREE they can pull the codes to the car. Most important: Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. While there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery and alternator.
By chance the system may have thrown a code........we are looking for like, B1342 or B1431 etc.
Next, let's check out the motor and relays...........
1. Check High Speed Operation - Turn ignition off. Disconnect wiper motor linkage from wiper motor. Disconnect wiper motor harness connector. Using a jumper wire, connect battery ground to wiper motor terminal No. 3 (Black wire terminal). Using a second jumper wire and in-line ammeter connect battery voltage to wiper motor terminal No. 5 (Dark Blue/Orange wire terminal). Wiper motor should operate at high speed and should draw 5.5 amps or less with wiper linkage disconnected. Replace wiper motor is operation is not as specified. If wiper operation is as specified, go to next step.
2. Check Low Speed Operation - Move battery voltage lead from wiper motor terminal No. 5 to wiper motor terminal No. 4 (White wire terminal). Wiper motor should operate at low speed and draw 3.5 amps or less. Replace wiper motor if operation is not as specified.
I know you just replaced the switch but by chance there may be a bad wire.........here is the tests for the switch.
You have 3 relays.............please test each one. The wiper high/low relay, wiper run/park relay or washer pump relay. I have attached the pic of the location of the relays.........for ease of viewing it is in two parts though.............so make sure you overlap.
I will continue to look for any tests for the CTM while you are doing the above.......is that okay?
