Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Expert:  Dan replied 9 days ago.

This is a common problem caused by a failed wiper motor/module. The gray wire feeds power to the wiper switch from the motor and then when the switch is turned on, it sends voltage back on the pink wire to the motor as input for a command. When the switch is off, the pink wire should not have any voltage on it at all. If no voltage but wipers are on this means the wiper motor/module needs to be replaced. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Would u agree that more then likely it's a simple resoldering the pins on the module? ? If so can u find the skimatic plz

I haven't heard of anyone fixing module themselves so I really have no idea what repair would consist of and do not have any diagrams of internal electronics.
