Interval Wipers

Recently bought my first Tacoma (been a Ford guy for years), 2009 Access cab and am pretty happy with it other than a few minor things. I couldn't believe it didn't have interval wipers. My 89 escort had interval wipers. Is it as simple as buying a switch on Ebay and plugging it in to make it work?

Is there no intermittent setting at all? Or is there just no variable intermittent setting? From what I've read you need to get a different wiper stalk that has the variable int. feature, then you just have to swap them out. There was a member here selling some of them a while ago, the install is apparently quite simple.

Tons of info out about this. Search.

U can just buy the intermittent wiper stalk and install.

From one life long ford guy to another, welcome to Toyota, you won't regret it. I don't miss my ranger one bit.

Yes it's that simple, I did it on mine when I bought it last year.

Slatercat sold me the switch, great guy and got it to me in no time. It took me 15-20 min start to finish.

Thanks for all the helpful replies.

I assume it would be the same for the cruise control too?

How am I going to get my post count up if I just search and don't ask any questions?

Seems good so far, but it only came with one key and I'm not impressed with the $200-250 for one from a dealer.
Already went to the local hardware guy that does chipped keys and he didn't have the right blank.
Not to mention the remote door openers I bought on Ebay because they said all you have to do is open and close the door a few dozen times and put the key in and out a few more dozen times and you'd be in program mode. After trying it a bunch of times and watching the Youtube video a few more times, I found out that you can't do it on 09s gotta go to the Stealer.

I've still got my SuperDuty

Not quite as easy..it requires removing the airbag and doing a little wiring. Doesn't look impossible, but still more than this job.

Thanks again

My background is electronics so a little wiring doesn't bother me. I'm looking for a good shop manual now.
