A sticking windshield wiper switch can cause a delay in wiper operation, especially in cold weather.

    Works fine in the summer, but in the winter my turn signals and windshield wiper switch don't work until the switch is warmed up.

    Wipers wouldn't work until interior warmed up in the winter. Read blog tutorial advice with good pix and disassembled multi switch and cleaned off the old dry grease that causes the problem.

    Wipers wont work until I leave it on full speed for a while guess they need time to warm up

    Well it didn't necessarily solve the problem, but in order to get the wipers to work, I turned them to top speed, and hold down the wiper delay. Then it starts to work. Tends to only happen when it's cold outside though.
