Thanks for the write up. my wipers just died.. almost like I just turned the switch off in a middle of driving at 55mph in heavy rain (FUN!). Since there was no stutter or slowdown of a motor dying, I didn't think it was a drive motor or anything like that, but more of an electrical connection or switch problem.

I'm did this fix (although instead of trying to clean the contact, I just replaced the relay)... and now I have a fully working wiper! saved me a bundle taking it to a mechanic. thanks!!!
