I did the swap about a year ago, and as I remember you can get the setup from a 88 pulsar NX with the CA18de also. I also recall but am not absolutly shure that the controll box from a Maxima would work. I have a spare control box from the Pathfinder sitting around, PM me if interisted, I would only want like $5 + shipping, all you would need from there would be the wiper switch from the steering column off a pathfinder or Pulsar NX.
I'll snag some parts off of a Pulsar NX that I saw at the Pick'n'pull this weekend, and maybe I can compare part numbers or something? It also had the power mirrors, but I may try to put in some power folding mirrors I have. I have power folding mirrors from a P10, B13, and an S13. :hal:

If the wiper switch from the car you got the wiper amplifier out of has adjustable intermittent than as long as the wiper switch fits into your sentra it should work.

I'm now using the wiper switch and amplifier box from a mid 90's pathfinder. The pathfinder switch has a variable control for the delay. The only thing you have to do if using the pathfinder switch is cut one of the ends off one of the wires and crimp the opposite style connector on, what I mean is the car harness side and the switch side both have a male connector so you have to cut either one off and crimp a female connector on. That's it still works fine.

You can use the wiper switch from a 95 pathfinder, as I said you just have to cut one connector off under the steering column, (or the single wire connector on the pathfinder switch), the reason is the car plug and the pathfinder wiper switch plug both have female connectors, so you cut either side off and put a male crimp terminal on one, than just plug the two together. I just took pictures of my pathfinder wiper switch and the wiper amplifier that I have in my 90 sentra, can not post them right now but will when I get back home. Other than cutting and changing that one connector everything else plugs right in. Will post the pics when I get back from the store.

Here are the 2 pictures, this is the pathfinder wiper switch installed in my base 90 Sentra:




This is the wiper amplifier mounted to the firewall, drivers side under the hood, the brown box:



If your car does not have variable wipers at all there will be a jumper connector plugged into the plug that goes into the wiper amplifier and the 2 plastic mollys in the firewall most likely will be unused.

Your welcome, you only have to change one end, either the car side or the new switch side.

Did you try to plug in the box and swap the switch? Maybe it will work without connecting the 2 wires?

If some of the 84 models came with variable wipers than the connections to put it in a car with non variable wipers should all be there. Nissan's usually have all the plugs and wires run throughout the car even if certain cars do not have certain options on them.

For example my 90 did not have the door switch that turns the dome light on for the pass side door but the wire was tucked up in the body all I had to do was get the switch and connect the wire, same with the glove box light.

If connecting the wiper amplifier box and swapping the switch doesn't work I would look around in both areas for a loose wire. You may need to get a service manual for your year. I'll look around for one to see if I can help you further.
