wiper motor wiring

installed a new (universal type) electric wiper motor in my coupe. The motor has a label "automatic park". The wiring hookups have three terminals (+)
(-)(S). I am using a toggle switch to activate ( only two wires) and the auto park feature does not work. How do I wire this to take advantage of the "auto park" feature?

If I remember right Power to the (+) and ground to (-) and the feed to your wiper goes to (S) but it has been a while be ready to replace a fuse I think I have the paper from mine in a pile at home I will look but if you have an Ohm meter you can figure it out pretty quickly.

The correct wiring for the "Universal" wiper motor is:

The negative terminal (-) goes to ground.

The positive terminal (+) goes to a fused power source.

The switched terminal (S) goes to one side of a toggle switch and to ground from the other terminal on the toggle switch.

If you have a "Mighty Wiper" brand the wiring is not as above. Their unit is wired quite different and will not work for the "Universal" wiper motors that are so prevalent. I am running the "Universal" style wiper motor.

Thanks Frisco if he had followed my directions he would have gone thru a box of fuses I wasn't able to find the directions from my switch last night
