They all use the same bulb. You might want to consider going to LED. You'll never change a bulb again & they run cold.

Is this correct? The cruise gets its power from this circuit? I hope I'm going in the right path!

That grease we used in the plant was nasty stuff. They had a woman doing that operation and she had grease all over the place.
I would use dielectric grease on the terminals............jack

How hard is it to repair my wipers? The motor will not stop running. I unplugged it. I'm told it needs a new switch that goes in the center of the console at the top. What have others experienced? Thanks
