Default windshield wiper issues

My 95 SE is having wiper issues. There is power to the switch but the wipers won't operate. I can't seem to locate a part number for the switch. It controls the headlight dimmer switch along with the wiper control. When I look up "dimmer switch" it shows the switch located on the column,not the part where the turn signal handle connects. Anyone have any ideas? I don't even know what to call the #[email protected]! thing. I've replaced the multi function switch,to no avail. The part I need is where the turn signal handle connects. Thanks in advance for any input.

no power to the motor,but there is power to the switch. I skinned back the wires, and used a jumper wire. The wipers worked when I did that. That how I discovered the switch was bad.

Go to www.rockauto.com and follow the menu to your car. Your looking for this area.

Looks like what you need is between $60 and $70 or so. Sorry, can't give you a link right to it, the site don't work that way.
