    Bosch wiper switch

    I have a Bosch wiper switch out of a X-ABC Fairmont/Fairlane whatever. It will be compatible with a 2 speed wiper motor and as a bonus, it has 3 different intermittent wipe settings.

    In lieu of being able to find the correct wiring diagram, there are letters on the back designating terminals where leads are to be plugged. I ASSUME...

    H is for high speed,
    E is for earth
    L is for low speed
    P is for park

    BUT

    There are 2 more terminals. T and W. I ASSUME that one will be for the squirters but I have no idea which one and no idea what the other is for.

    Am I on the right track? How do I find out what the W and T are for?

    Sounds like "wipe" and "timer" may be candidates but it's just a guess. Did you get the bits of wiring harness and the plugs associated with the switch the wire colours may give a better indication of the functions at each terminal?

    Unfortunately not.

    I failed in my attempt to find an online wiring diagram, but I think its just that I'm not looking hard enough.

    And if it is 'wipe' and 'timer', where is the squirter terminal?

    heres how you should do this
    1
    Turn the key to the on position to provide power to all interior accessories.

    2
    Locate the wiper switch mounted to the steering column.
    3
    Turn the wiper switch to the on position.

    4
    Inspect the wipers for proper operation while selecting different speeds.

    5
    Turn the key to the off position. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

    6
    Disconnect the wiring harness from the switch.

    7
    Remove the old switch and replace it with a new switch.

    8
    Connect the wiring harness to the new switch.

    9
    Connect the negative battery cable.

    10
    Test the wiper switch for proper operation to verify the repair.

    CrazyDave, could you kindly stop posting this sort of thing please. I honestly don't see what relevance any of these kinds of posts have to do with the original topics and it is boarderline spam.

    Thankyou.

    Stop Mol.

    Every single one of his posts links to a generic autoMD website and have not in any way been helpful. His is just spruking his website without this websites owners permission.

    I challenge you to prove otherwise!!!

    Besides, his post is completely irrelevant to my question.

    Much like yours, you spammer.

    I think that's earlier than the one I have. Not sure if that would have the 3 intermittent functions?

    Mine would be 3 times as deep as that, but I think it will still fit in there OK.

    That one might work if you can mate up the dash bezel securely.
