Hi all,

I ham having issues with the windshield wiper motor on an 86 X not working. I want to start tracing out the circuit and do some troubleshooting, but I do not have a wiring diagram for the darn thing.

At a minimum, if someone can identify the wire color code at the wiper motor connector with its function, that would be a big start (or if there is a wiring diagram on the net, that would work too)

Here is the WS Wiper schematic...

... and there are loads of other things in this file... including an upgrade by Lezesig, I believe that increases wiper speed. 

Let us know if you need further help or what you find...

I have downloaded the wiring diagrams (thank you VERY much) and figured out that I should have 12 VDC on the orange wire that connects to the wiper motor when the the ignition is on. I don't. I am suspecting a fuse or something like it, but none of the fuses are blown (visual inspection) and for that matter I can't tell for the pictorial hieroglyphs on the fuse block which one it would be anyway. The good news is that the washer pump is working!

Any clue which fuse protects the wiper motor circuit?

A little more investigation reveled a bad ground. Once repaired, I have the proper voltages on the wiper motor cable end.

Now it is time to remove the wiper motor and do a bit of surgery.

Thanks to all that have helped.

Here is the Fuse and Relay drawing...

http://www.lemley.net/electric/bertone_ ... one_10.png

I'm still unsure of WHICH fuse #7 is... as I find it listed as L&nbsp;and also H on other drawings.

Someone has a recent drawing on these fuses for late models... Try paging Bob Brown and then ask him to post it in Best Of also.

Lastly... Jim decker listed a WSW or Winshield Wiper Mod near the lower part of the Best Of listings.&nbsp; You may wanna modify yours also...
