Yes you can if you know how . I wouldn't wire it on high speed . Get a 3 pole switch , the middle pole
should be your off .good luck ,i guess your not worried about looks . I know i have been their.

Wiper motor fix

Don't need to hotwire. There is ground wire for the wiper motor down at the starter. This wire very often gets missed, and when not grounded to the starter the wiper will not run. Hope this helps.

Yes ,i think you can .But why don't you buy a new switch and put in it . They are not cheap, like the one in my 75 vette was 39.00 dollars .But make sure
your wiper motor isn't burned out . check to make sure you have juice in your hot wire and touch to your ground wire and see it the motor runs,and if it does ,put another switch in it or a toggle switch. a three way toggle.
