I think there could be a short on or near the windshield

Customer Question

I think there could be a short on or near the windshield wiper switch on column in my 2000 seville
JA: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?
Customer: yes there's power and I get resistants on the high side but no resistants on the low switch and middle
JA: Are you fixing your Seville yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes myself......I've tried 3 different used wiper motors that haven't worked so I started checking with a meter
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: well I did lower the engine to replace a solenoid in the transmision and now my radio and heater controls on the steering column don't work either

Can you go into more detail on the wipers? Which does not work intermediate, low, or high?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
None of them....but I do get resistants on my meter from the high port and none from the others...but the high speed still doesn't work

Here is your wiper diagram.

Is the yellow wire powered at both the switch and motor?

Is the black wire grounded at the motor?

OHM test the dark blue and purple wires from the motor to the switch, to see if there is no resistance.

Let me know these results.
