Seems to me your choke would only work when it was raining. Seriously, I'd just run a wire into the fuse panel and be done with it.

when installing an electric choke they always tell you to splice into the wiper motor , because with the ign in the run position the wiper motor has a constance 12 volt supply of power, but it is easyer to take 12 volts off your fuse panel, but find a power source with the ign on . and when you turn the ign off , you have no power.because on the fuse panel there is pins with constance 12 volt and if you use one of them your choke would be always open and you would have a dead batt.

Like Dklong said.
I would go directly to the fuse panel.
Neater and safer.

On my Delta 88 I tapped into the ignition itself. When I was installing alarms I always used the 12 volt/keyon nodule. Just open your Steering column up and find the node and tap into that wire. Set an additional fuse block or link up for that 12 volt source right next to your fusebox or by your battery. It's a steady power supply that is constant on when your key in in the "powered" position and shut off when the key is off.
The only other way to tap into the Wiper Motor box is to know what make and model of car you have. If it has a wire run to it just turn your car on and flip on the wipers. You should have a constant 12v and a poweron 12v. I believe it's 16 volt though on the Saturns. Best to measure beforehand in any situation. I am always finding odd voltage readings in the newer model cars.

I think Dklong has already covered that.
