wiper switch wiring question

This is for a 1970 CJ5.

Going off this Diagram, I do not see any wiring for a wiper switch.



I bought what I think is a factory wiper switch. The wiper motor has three wires coming from it, Red, Green and Black. I assume Red and Green are two different speed settings, and black is ground.

My question is what goes where on the switch, it has 5 connections on it. Just different speed settings? I assume will always only have two speed settings with my wiper motor.






Also going off the Diagram again, what are the stop light switches referring to in the document? I thought brake light but there wouldn't' be a front brake light so I can't figure it out.

Thanks for your time.

Wipers switches come in a couple of flavors:
I think yours is wired like this:


Some Other ones:








Front brake switch? never heard of one before.
Maybe they are talking about some kind of brake failure switch on a combination valve.
