I'm confused, is it too slow or to fast?
But to answer your question other than making the adjustment to the speed on the stalk, no I know of no mod to alter the factory settings.

We already have variable speed wipers(at least I do). He wants a longer delay i'm guessing.

So again, I am not aware of any mods to make it a longer delay.

We only have 1 fixed delay speed. In theory, this would be all you need to get 3 different delay times! Although I can't say that said stalk will be the only peice of electronics needed.

If you have a 2009-2010 Vibe, You can adjust the wiper delay speed.

Yes, even the longest delay is my opinion, is a bit short. The adjustment is on the shaft handle...look for a vertical white line with dashes and the pointer knob. You have three delay times.

I cannot speak about if it is on the earlier Vibe models. However I do see a picture of an earlier type shaft wiper switch above.
