Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The control module that controls the front wiper with signals from the wiper switch is the Centeal timer module/generic electronic module.The signals are sent from the wiper switch into this control module then from this module out to the wiper motor itself.Seen in the diagrams here (if you can read wiring diagrams you can see the switch inputs into it and the signals out to the wiper motor.

The generic electronic module is located under and behind the dash on the drivers side as seen here.
