viney266 The switches themselves are known to go bad on our cars..That might still be covered under warranty, check with the dealer.

Windshield Wiper Control Issue

Wow it has been some time since I have been on the forums, but figured I would see if anyone has comments/ideas regarding my Wiper issue.

I have a 2007 Ford Focus 3rd SE which a couple weeks ago started having a problem with the windshield wiper control. When turning on the windshield wipers they start going without any issues, but then the problem below start:
- When in position 1 (Were u can normal adjust there speed with the dial) they will stay at one speed, so if I turn the speed to 6, it will just continue at the speed of 2.
- When in position 2 (were it is a constant speed not adjustable) it continues at the same speed as if in position 1
- When turning the wipers off (Moving it back to position 0) they just continue as if they were stuck in position 1. It takes a couple times and some luck of switching between position 1 and 0 to get them to finally stop.
- When using the -1 (so it would only do 1 wipe) it just continues as if in position 1 and must do the same as above to stop.

Position 3 seems to work correctly however still have the turn them off issue. I know everything is in the correct positions and am not special and missing the position 0. I am not sure exactly what is going on and assume it will have to go into the shop, but rather avoid that if someone has a fix or something to try.
