The wipers won't work on inttermittent but using the wipers manually does? on 1998 Volkswagen Jetta

I have to do the manual way and lift the paddle when I want the wipers to work. When I put the paddle down. Nothing happens.

well you either have a problem with the switch or the wiper motor is defective, the timer for the delay is usually built into the motor assembley..
