How to diagnose if it is the wiper switch or wiper relay that is bad causing wipers to not work. ( Already replaced wiper motor turn signals work fine .
My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
If you suspect the relay, power the relay solenoid directly with twelve volts. Then check for continuity across the relay switch contacts. If no continuity, as the solenoid is powered, then the relay is bad. If you suspect the switch, simply turn the switch "on" and check for 12 volts from the switch output to any body ground. If 12 volts are not measured, then the switch is bad. If there is a failure in the circuit, a Mechanic would trace it, using the wiring diagram in the Factory Service Manual, find the wiring, ground, termination or device fault that has caused an interruption in power and repair it.
