^ I would like more information on this also. I have the same issue and I was going to change the motor but this multi-switch seems more logical. Any idea where these parts are located ?

Usually the relay goes bad. That one by the wiper motor. Borrow a known good one from a buddy to see if that's the problem before spending any money.

If the wipers work, it is not the motor, or they wouldn't move at all. the motor is only doing what it is told.

the motor has three brushes inside. one is only used to advance the motor timing to give the higher speed (thats what the relay switches in). If the car is quite old I'd guess the brushes are crapped out.
