Angry Problem with wiper switch

My 91 Convertible wiper switch only works on one speed, the wipers never stop at the bottom of the windshield. Does anyone know anyone that can rebuild this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

wiper switches are very common thing that go out on the cars its the relay that needs to be replaced that would fix your problem i dont know the number for the relay or where you can find it but they cost about 10 bucks for it the relay is in the switch itself

The difference is that the cruse main switch is located in the top part of the module that contains the hazard Switch and the wiper switch
