    Hey there! So I am new to this forum and wanted to pick some brains on a problem I have run into. I have transplanted a 2007 Impala SS column into a 55 Truck but the newer electronics with resistance based signals and 22 ga. wires make it difficult implement with the old school analog technology of 14 ga. wires. For example, I am trying to utilize the wiper switch on the column with a 2 speed wiper motor (and no "park"). I have the schematic of the column and have mapped everything out in TinyCAD (very novice user) but cannot figure out the "Magic box" portion to differentiate between mist, intermittent and low speed. I haven't clocked the wiper cycle but I am guessing around 2 seconds to start - hopefully that is an easy fix as well.

    Any suggestions and insight are welcome.

    Thanks!!!

    I just learned that it is better to pass ground than voltage, so I have updated my circuit. Baby steps. :)
