Time for some sleuth work. Anyone else feel free to jump in at any time......(I'm going from memory, don't have the manual available to me right now)

1. Does the wiper stop when you pull the relay? (there may be more than one relay!)

2. If wiper stops when relay(s) pulled, check across connections (with a multimeter/voltmeter) to stalk switch to see if you have continuity with switch to "off" position. If you do, you have a short in the switch or the wiring.

3. If wiper does NOT stop when relay(s) pulled (I think this would be impossible), you have a short or unintended ground in the wiring up to or past the relay(s), or there is another relay that is not pulled.

I'll try to check when I have the manual and repost (probably 2 days from today).

: Okay, swapped the wiper relay, no luck. Still run all the time. Ugh, I am more than happy to install a switch to turn the dumb things off and on, which wire? By the way the two speeds both work, but I have to guess backwards. Knob out, slow, knob in, fast.

: Also, looking at the dull taillights, I went out and got some buffing pads for the dremmel and viola, very very shiny reflectors, once you peel off the chrome plating. Absolutely terrific, with a coating of sealant. Took about two hours per light.
