    Replacing the wiper/washer switch, but I’ll be damned if I can remember if it had intermittent wipers or just lo hi and mist. It has a chrome handle, but the letters have been worn off for years. It is a Scottsdale, tilt column but I cruise if that helps. Thanks fellas!

    Not sure if that would be in the RPO codes, someone more knowledgeable in that might be able to tell us.

    What I would do, is even though you have the wiper switch removed, I'd take and put the stalk back in and move it though the positions. If it's got 3 stops plus mist then no intermittent. If it's got 4 stops and one has a bigger amount of movement in it then it has intermittent.

    Count the wires on your switch, I think a standard hi lo has 5 wires and the intermittent one has seven.
