I recently bought a '69 and the windshield wiper wires are cut and disconnected. I am wondering if someone can tell me which wires go where at the switch (I know it's the dk blue, lt blue and black) and also same issue at the motor which wires goes where?
Thanks,
Kelvin

At the motor:
The connections furthest away from the firewall: top wire-dark blue, bottom wire-yellow (or black/yellow stripe).
The connections closest to the firewall: top wire-yellow (the wire from the outer connection), middle wire-light blue, bottom wire-black.
And at the switch, left to right: black, light blue, dark blue (as you're looking up at the plug upside down under the dash).

You're welcome, and one more thing. That doesn't include the two wires that activates the solenoid for the washer pump on the motor. My washers are MIA, and my service manual doesn't show those wires either. I would think one should be ground, then the other would have to be either a jumper wire of the light or dark blue wire, since that's all the wires that are on the dash switch.

Well....I have a few issues.
1. The wipers will not shut off in the off position, they stay on low. The low position is fine and the high position is fine.
2. When I was pushing in on the switch I could hear the pump clicking or making some noise, then it blew a fuse.

Any thoughts? When I looked at the factory assembly manual it appears that the wires at the switch are opposite of what is mentioned above.

Thanks guys!!

My wires are hooked up with the original plugs. To make sure there's no mixup at the switch, left to right if you're sitting in the seat would be dark blue, light blue, black. If you have that rignt, then I wonder if the wires are right at the motor? Or it could be a problem with the motor itself not cycling off.
