To add some details, on mine when the wiper issue happened it was the relay - I got it out with an extended reach needle nose pliers so I didn't need to disassemble as much as the thread you can search for on here shows - the old thread gave me the right part # though, since the dealer's computer microfiche DIDN'T identify the relay by function!

And as to heat, the temp gauge reading is from the CHT sensor (cylinder head temperature), so it'll show warm B4 the coolant is heated up enough to give you good cabin heat.... It's more accurate for engine operation so the 'puter knows what fuel to send it, NOT accurate as to when there's enough heat to keep YOU warm! (chuckle)

Luck!
