Default '96 FZJ80 Rear Wiper

Problem - rear wiper switch is turned off but rear wipers are stuck on intermittent. Problem with the switch? Anybody else ever heard of this problem? MUDsearch didn't reveal much...

I never had a problem or heard of it. If you can find a plug for the switch - unplug it. That should indicate if the problem is in the switch or in the motor assembly. I'm betting it's the switch.

I guess there's a panel in the driver's D pillar and there's a relay in there or something that can get wet and cause shorts that cause weird problems. Time to start investigating deeper...
