Windshield Wiper Delay

Author: Ken Freese

If you drive your Interceptor in the rain, I know you’ve wished for an intermittent wiper switch to turn. Auto parts stores carry an under-dash delay for less than $10 that does work, and can be hidden in the console. It comes in a small plastic box for the under-dash mounting, but the box can be pried away, leaving the small circuit board with a knob protruding.

This assembly fits perfectly in the console hole left when I had removed the speaker fader switch (most modern radios have built-in faders). The instruction sheet requires one to find the park wire at the windshield wiper switch (the brown/ lightgreen stripe one, on my 75/76 car).

By using appropriate spade terminals, the wire can be interrupted without any cut wires. The power source for the delay can be anything convenient as the unit does not draw much power.
