New to forum....out the other day and, and went to put wipers on (can't believe I got caught in a drizzle)......the cover opened for wipers, but wipers did not pop up, AND the headlamp light came on.  The 1st thing I need to address is this headlamp light because it stays on even when car is off.  I had to disconnect battery when I arrived at destination.  I left it connected overnight, now I have a dead battery.  
So, why would headlamp light stay on?

Secondly, what could be wrong with wipers?  When I turn car off, I manually push down wiper cover (btw - does that have a name).  When I start it up, wiper cover opens automatically even with wiper switch in off position.

I'm wondering if my problems are parallel with each other, or just coincidental?

Have a 68' 4 spd conv

For your headlights look to the Headlight sw. the vacuum portion of the headlight sw could effect the vacuum of the wiper doors. do you have a wiring diagram and or a vacuum diagram for the headlights and wipers ? I could send you one if needed
