This has been happening for a few weeks now, but is starting to bug me especially now since it is extra cold outside. The windshield wipers on my Mustang won't work until AFTER the car has been running a few minutes and the interior has warmed up some. This problem only occurs in the morning or when the car has sat for 6-8 hours and it is cold outside. I have no idea where to even start to look for a problem, but it is a problem that is definately temperature related. Any ideas?

At first you don't succeed, read the manual.

Could be voltage problem or what I think it is that after all the years inhte car the motor itself has become full of dirt,oil and crap. You might have to take itout and clean the motor. A good electric degreaser sprayed into the moter and let it dry might just help it. If you could take the motor apart and clean the brass bushings (or bearings) will help it along. What iss happenening is all tha crud in it is holding it back when its cold
if it's crud not letting motor to turn youo should hear circuit breaker clicking if you get in a quite location and put your ear down close to wiper switch. my '68 got bound up by a piece of rust that fell down to end of motor shaft - just a real small piece. cleaned it and reasembled it and been fine since. if you need any help on how it works PM me - its quite clever. when you put motor shaft back in tie the brushes up with very fine pieces of wire and remove after you get brushes in - that was trickiest part.
