Wiper blade control

1971 cadillac wiper control lever will not turn on the wiper blades at any speed selected on the control lever but if you push forward on the chrome button on the lever the washer and intermittent wiper blades will work. can any one help? thanks Ronny

More than likely, if you push on any part of the wiper/washer controls and the wipers/washers work, there’s a problem with the wiper/washer switch. And with a 71 Cadillac, it would be of no surprise.
