    72 GT Wiper Foot Switch Wiring

    Does anyone know the wiring sequence for the foot pedal switch that operates the wipers? I recently installed a new pedal switch and did not write down the wiring sequence. I have a yellow, purple and 2 blue wires hanging. It seems every combination I try does not work? Must the car be running for the switch to work?

    I know you got the answer but I figured I would post this picture anyway. It seems that the picture is different than the explanation. I bet the switch is just DPST (double pole single throw) so it does not matter which ones are on the top or the bottom.

    But it does matter side to side. One is NO and the other NC.
