Default Wiper Motor Wiring Diagram Help Please

I have a 2001 with no wiper motor function at all. The squirters work and the fuse has checked out OK. The relays click for on and for high. I swapped it out with the fuel pump relay and still nothing. I am guessing either the multi-function switch is to blame or the wiper motor is dead. Does anyone have a wiring schematic for the wiper motor connector? I tested the connections and here is what I found:

Switch off - Power to white/black wire
Switch in Intermittent - Power to white/black wire and solid white wire
Switch on low continuous - Power to white and white/black
Switch on high - Power to Purple/Orange and white/black
I assume that the black wire is ground.

I could not get power to the solid green wire at the end of the harness under any scenario.

Any ideas would be appreciate.

From what you've described the motor is getting the right power signals. The green wire becomes hot only after the motor has started moving and sends power back through the relays to continue powering the motor until it reaches the park position.

A bad ground could be causing all your problems, so check for a ground on the black wire. You might have also blown the thermal fuse as you can see in the diagram.

Thanks Behlinla for your reply. The ground is good. I narrowed it down to a motor that went south. A couple of taps on the housing and it came to life for a brief time then quit again. I can get them to run by giving an arm a little pull with the switch on high. I will swap it out this weekend.

Yup, sounds like the motor is bad then. Hope the new one works for you.
