Wiper issues

I have searched this site for hours about wiper-related issues but I need some advice on how to proceed.

Symptoms: Whenever I turn the wiper stalk to the slow speed nothing happens. Whenever I turn it to the fast speed they run at normal speed (not fast). The intermittants do not work at all. Wipers do not park correctly either. Turn signal, high-low, and window washer works great.

Questions: Is it the stalk, motor, module or a combination of these? How can I test these without having to throw parts at it?

Thanks.

To test the intermittent module, check and see if the plug going into it is the same as the plug that goes into your wiper switch. If it is, bypass the module. I replaced mine with a non-intermittant switch that plugged into the plug that originally went into the int. module, but I dont remember if the plugs were the same between intermittent and non-intermittent switches. Mines also a '79...

Thanks Charlie. I had read where a lot of people have bypassed this switch that way but I am suspecting my wiper stalk for some of these issues. I just want to make sure before I tear the steering wheel apart. I will try bypassing this module and see what happens.

Wiper park is controlled on the motor.
I would check the stalk with a meter first, switch closures, rheostat.

Thanks for the tip. Does some of my other symptoms sound like it could be motor-related as well?
