Good to know. I'm sure he cleaned the ground when he replaced the motor, but there is always the possibility that it will corrode in the future. I had cleaned the original ground when I replaced my motor, before leaving Massachusetts. Halfway across the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, I ran into a thunderstorm, and the wipers stopped working occasionally. As soon as i got to my sister's house in Minnesota, I rerouted the ground wire to the ground on the firewall, and no more issues for three years now.
