I'm sure there is more than one way to skin a cat but along with my Bosch wiper motor from a VW Rabbit, the 15 DCV step up converter has worked for me. And allot easier than hooking up relays. Just run the input wire from the fusebox to the converter and the output wire back to the fusebox.

I did have to plumb in a 10 amp circuit breaker because if the engine is not running and I forget to turn my wipers off before restarting the car and/or the heater is on, it will pull more current and blow the fuse due the less voltage (ohms law). Once I did the brown wire fix, this doesn't seem to happen.
