I have checked the fuses and they are fine.
I have read about a lot of problems with the relays. Does anyone know where they are located on this model?
Thanks for any help. I would appreciate any and all suggestions.
The wipers are controled by three relays designated, K11, K36 and K37. All are located in the E-box at the right rear of the engine compartment below the micro filter housing. This location is for the V8 engined cars but i think it may hold true for the 6 cyl engined cars as well. The relays in question may be hidden under the wiring harness.
hope this helps
