I've got one from a 95 teg gsr and I honestly don't know if it'll work with yours. The gsr steering cluster has a rear wiper control switch.

Default Re: Broken switch (Black Light)

HAHAHAHA I have a video of a guy (I think it was from here) who had the same prob... he had vids up of him driving his new swap... and every time he shifted the wipers came on it was funny... one response was...

What is that a wiperblade shift light?

Most people just jam a match book or something under there to stop it from falling by accident.

Keep an eye open on ebay they come up when people strip there cars for race... and they sell for like 5-10 bucks instead of the rediculous cost new.

I think it might be a broken spring or broken tab or something. My lil bros civic has this problem and i remember looking it up to fix it for him but i never got around to it.

About $30 from the dealer, at their price.

If you want a part number to see how much to get it for from http://www.hparts.com, let me know. Send me a PM.

HAHA, i couldn't help but to laugh at that comment As far as fixing it goes, try looking around in your local junkyard. I am sure you can find it there and I bet they wouldn't charge you more than $10 for it

My brothers Gs-R had the same problem and we never fixed it until it got too annoying racing or shiting hard so we did just wedge a rubber band kind of thing so we would still be able to use it when we needed to and just took it off when it was raining. Hahaha, karate chopped the hell out of it huh???
