New Wiper Motor quits when raining
I've got a 1965 GTO with a new 2 speed wiper motor and arm and the motor seems to jump up and down when the arm swings back and forth and then out of no where it quits totally.
I'm going to replace the switch (which I thought had been replaced by the guy working on it 2 years ago but apparently didn't) just out of common sense, but could this jumping on those rubber mounts and rubber gasket mounted to the firewall be doing something to overheat the motor and it stalls out because the arm is binding it up? Just never noticed this jumping because I was inside and the hood was down.
The fuse is not blown and I know its definitely getting power.
