Sorry if I missed anything up front, I am at work and haven't had the ability to look at anything on the car yet. Anyway, on the way to work today I turned on the wipers and nothing moved. didn't see the voltmeter drop like the motor was trying to run and was jammed, but I did hear the speaker crack when I pushed in the switch for the pump. So the best I can tell I have power to the switch. From what I remember and its been since forever, the center of 3 terminal on the motor should have 12 volts to it. And then the switch grounds to either the right or left side. I don't remember which is low or high side. Does this sound correct? So if I check the motor, I should be able to ground the left and right terminal and the motor should run.
