Wipers! Not MFS

99 Wagon SE. Wipers do not work on intermittent or low, (sometimes they do but very seldom). They do work fine on high. Signals, hazard and washer all work fine every time.
Everything I read here pointed to the MFS. Got a good deal on a new one on ebay, instructions for changing (found on TCCA) were bang on. Fifteen minutes out and in ... but no change!

What's next? Any ideas are appreciated.
Thanks

Did you get the right year switch?

Yes I did, and all the symptoms are exactly identical.
