How To on Installing adjustable interval speed for wipers.
« on: August 23, 2009, 21:53:14 PM »
What To use
1 wiper stalk from Omega MK2 with Interval wheel
Choose on of these:
Without rear wiper control and without Trip comp control GM 90494654
Without rear wiper control and with Trip comp control GM 90494656
With rear wiper control and without Trip comp control GM 90494655
With rear wiper control and with Trip comp control GM 90494657
If you can get it from a scrappy, cut the cable so you have the connectors. and can make a connection that can be removed.

Wiper relays Omega MK2, GM 90494187
Connectors for 2 wires Female/male

isolation tape

What to do!.
Remove the plastic parts around the steering wheel column.

If you have a trip Comp (MID) and want to use the buttons on the stalk as wel.
take out the MID, make sure you can see the wires of the MID and the wire numbers!
Connect to:
Pin 1 brown wire
Pin 20 brown/white wire
pin 22 brown/red wire
Reconnect MID and place it back in position.
REMEMBER! THIS STALK DOES NOT REPLACE ALL YOUR CONTROLS AS YOU CAN'T SET TIME WITH THESE. YOU STILL NEED YOUR ORIGINAL CONTROLS FOR THAT

The stalk have, if fitted with MID control 5, if not fitted with MID Control 2 extra wires compared to your Calibra Stalk.

Remove the Calibra stalk and disconnect the wiring.

Check your original Stalk and search for letter J.
The Black/Yellow wire that connect to J is the wire you need to cut.
Make sure to keep workspace on both ends!
Give both ends of the cut wire a connector. Use a male and a female for this, So you can reconnect both if needed.

You have 2 wires left.
White/Black. We name this wire 1.
Yellow/black. We name this wire 2

Now read carefully.

one wire goes to the connector. We name this Wire 3
One wire goes to behind the dash in your existing cable tree. This wire is called wire 4.

Connect Wires 1 and 3 and Wires 2 and 4

Change the relays.

And you can adjust the interval speed!

First one to do so, can take the appropriate pictures.
Maybe worthwhile placing into How To section.

Or you can just use a relay from a VW, then you don't have to change stalks or anything.

I talked with him about this yesterday, but actually, after trying both I'd rather the omega stalk.

Apparently it can, there's a whole bunch of stalks available.
However I don't have one, don't want one and won't fit one with that capability :D

Stalks of Omega work with your Trip computer.
There is only one issue that I have not resolved Yet.

Omega MID have 2 buttons to adjust time.
On Calibra Trips, this is built in with the control switches.
On the stalk this function is not available.
You have to find a set of nice buttons to be able to adjust the time or you have to leave youre original control buttons.
You can start stop timer, change function reset etc using the stalk.

If you just connect those 3 wires.
