I have a 1987 Nissan Pulsar NX with odd wiper behavior. Sometimes the wipers work for a few minutes to a few days at a time, other times they won’t turn on at all. They seem to work best when it’s not raining. And sometimes I’ll turn them on (just to see if they work today), get no response, turn them off again, drive for a few minutes and the wipers will suddenly give two or three swipes - with the switch still off!
Since we’ve replaced the wiper linkage and the wiper motor, all that’s left to replace is the wiper switch, but that is proving to be much more complicated than expected.
No one has parts for this car. My mechanic tells me to go buy the parts on Ebay or online, bring them to him and he’ll install them. I was able to locate the wiper motor and linkage, but I can’t find a switch anywhere. My questions:
- Does this sound like a switch problem?
- Anyone have any leads on a switch for this car? I don’t want to buy one in a junkyard, as it will probably be as old and worn out as the one I’m replacing.
