wiper switch problems

Hey guys, The wiper switch in my 64 gets warm to the touch any time the ignition is on. I've run the extra ground from my cluster to the parking brake so I should have good ground. The wipers work correctly, just can't figure out what is producing heat in the switch, any ideas?

Re: wiper switch problems

A lttle more info, the wiring harness is not original, it has an aftermarket style harness with modern fuses, not sure which brand because it was installed when I got the wagon.
