Wiper Motor Problems

I have a 1992 that I am currently changing out the windshield frame on. The previous owner said that he had a problem with the wiper motor only working on high, no low or intermittent. I can probably troubleshoot it and find out what it is but was just wondering if anyone has had the same issue and what the fix was.

I would think the problem is in the wiper switch not the motor. There is also a delay assy on the firewall under the dash. So it would be the the turn signal stick oor the delay box. The motor just does what it is told by the other parts. The speeds change by resistance before the wiper motor.

The motor has a high a low and a ground coming from it. It's either the low speed wire is disconnected somewhere or it's the switch. Can't remember which color is which.
