Since getting into an accident 7 years ago the wipers became intermittent never really turning off. this continues today to turn them off I must unplug them. and plug them in when needed. replaced steering column switch several times to no solution. found a report today the steering column switch needs to be from 97-98 even though 97 through 2003 are the same 98 thru 2003 has a minor circuit variance that causes issues. we will try to rescue a 97-98 column switch.
