68 Fastback Electrical Gremlin

My battery went completely dead so I took it to Pepboys and they fully charged it and it tested good. About a month ago I noticed the window wipers came on randomly a couple of times and I couldn't get them to shut off, they went off on their own. I am guessing this may be an indication of electrical short somewhere.

First I plan to check my fuse box and make sure all the contacts are good and clean. I have already cleaned up my battery cables and connections and even the ground connection to the block. My question is related to the window wipers. Anyone know off the top of their heads what circuit that would be associated with or if the motor is notorious for going bad. I have an electrical diagram I just haven't pulled it out yet.

you may want to pull the wiper switch and check it out. It may just be somethijng as simple as that before you spend too much time chasing gremlins. your motor should not see any power unless the switch sends it so that is where I would begin.

Probably the best route, pulling out the instrument cluster is such a pain!!
