I don't have a wiring diagram handy, but I may be able to help you figure it out if I can get a little more info from you:

Which end are you trying to hook-up, the motor or the switch or both?

Is there any wiring, or is it all missing?

On the lower side of the motor there is usually male disconnects, i think the lower right will be brown (12v supply), next to it will be red, this red goes to the switch and jumps to the other connection point above the motor (to the lower of two male disconnects), a black will go from the switch to the upper male disconnect of that same connection point. I don't think this motor 'parks' does it?
I know that ground plays a role and whether that is an internal thing thru the switch isn't clear from my schematic. I'd mock it up on a bench first to try it. Hope this helped, oj

Im trying to hook up the motor to the switch. i have all the wiring,but i think someone spliced i couple wires in.

it does park, i know it has power to it at all times. it is just the ground switch that is throwing me for a loop.

There should be a set of three terminals on the wiper motor; One is wired to fused key-on power, and the other two are wired to the wiper switch. The wiper switch controls the wiper motor by grounding these two wires in different combinations.
When:
Only wire "A" is grounded, the wipers run in high
Both wires are grounded, the wipers run in low, and
Only wire "B" is grounded, the wipers park.

There is a third terminal on the wiper switch that triggers the windshield washer by grounding a wire from the washer pump. The windshield washer pump is mounted to the wiper motor, it has a set of two terminals; one of them is wired to the wiper switch, and the other has a short wire to the power terminal in the wiper motor terminals.

I think I have a wiper wiring diagram from a '63 Corvette. It uses the same wiper motor and switch as your car, so I think it's safe to assume they are wired the same. I'll scan and post the diagram tomorrow.

Hope this helps....
