By any chance do you have a black 3rd brake light cover or a black access panel cover below it?

Yes, the four-position intermittent switch out of the later 5-pin connector cars. Mine is an '86 or '87. Int and Low are the same speed and the wipers don't self park anymore either.

I pulled one from an 83 SR5 and plugged it into my 83 DLX...no go...it just had two low settings. I'm wondering if there's a relay or something I'm missing?

If I can't get it to work, you'll have first dibs Prof.

If it's from an '83 it is a 4-pin connector won't work in my facelifted, 5-pin '87. At least from what I've read, I haven't even pulled the switch yet.

Facelifted?

Yea, I don't understand why it won't work cause it's from the same year. Maybe I'll stick it into my 87 and see if it's plug and play there.
