The good ole pulse wiper failure, ive much experience with that, thats why when i was looking for a 77 to 79 model years ago i was going to only buy one with the two speed and i got lucky, i got a two speed. But i had an 84 caprice, first year for the multistalk, ( the wipers, cruise, turn sigs, high beams all in one, for those who didnt know) i had intermittent problems with it then it got to a point to where the delay wouldnt work, the washer pump would get stuck, and then after a bout 5 mins of using it on either low or high it would just stop completely like it overheated, let it cool down and it would work again, had some fun rainy days to say the least ( before i knew about rainx lol). I went through 4 wiper motors, bought 3 from the junkyard then ended up buying a reman from the local auto parts store, bought two new washer pumps, and i could never ever get that thing to work properly, i fought that for over 3 years and then discovered it was the switch inside the column, i found one but for over 150 dollars i couldnt afford it ( still in high school no job). The moral of this story, stay away from early GM pulse wipers!
