So, the wiper motor has continuity across the red and white wires. Nothing happening in the other two wires not that I know what to expect though.

My project has an AAW harness and the windscreen washer manual foot pump integrated wiper switch is kaput so in advice from the AAW site (thanks Nassi) you can jumper the black wire with the black/yellow stripe wire and leave the other two disconnected. The wiper fuse is good. The switch is brand new however trying to test it I cannot prove one way or the other if it is working as I can't trust my el cheapo multi meter. With everything hooked up the wipers are simply not functioning at all. I have tried putting power directly to the motor and nothing happens there but was I even doing it right...!?! (Insert shrug)...

Can't be bothered writing anymore about the brake lights not working... Will right up another rant when I have th energy!

You likely already understand the circuit for the brake lights.
Any way, for what it is worth, check you have 12V one side of the brake switch, then see when pressed the 12v on the other side. Then goes into the column where the column indicator switch controls the output to the rear lights. No 12v out to the brakes when checking at the lights then the column switch or plug is the problem.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Thanks Boof... I have a rudimentary understanding and have figured out pretty quickly that the wires labeled for the indicators are also the same wires that feed power to activate the brake function of the lights... I have been fucking around a lot in behind the dash so it's possible either one of the brake switch down at the pedal or the steering column wiring has been interfered with inadvertently.

Thanks Dave,

That was the article that Nassi pointed out to me. I have done that and still no joy.

One more reason, not that it helps you but as a note for others considering the "plug and play" repros... that the Alloy Metal reproductions just plug in exactly as OEM and still match the FoMoCo wiring diagrams and tie into any old reused connections/harnesses with one click.

I get that the Painless (in name, not reality, good marketing/PR!) etc., are "cheaper", but at what cost for extra work and this type of frustration...

Hope you sort it out.

Ok, brakes problem identified... I actually went a bought a half decent (at least better) multimeter and have confirmed the brakes circuit works however the switch of course is not closing the circuit - was always going to be the most likely culprit so will order a (couple/few) new ones...

Mike, just be sure to order specific to your requirement. There are a number alternatives, all look the same but have different actuating pressures.
I can't remember if yours is power drum or power disc?
Glad you are sorting it.
60 plus hours a week are eating into my spare time atm, but you are on my mind. (nightmare) lol.

Thanks Nassi,

Yes the nylon bush is in however interesting point on the different types for application. It hadn't occurred to me and so am unsure. It was 100% working previously then just failed so I can only guess it is correct but will double check when ordering.

BTW it is power disc / drum combo
