Question: Why does my radio turn off when I try to use my wiper fluid?

i recently had to replace my multi-switch and everything worked great. followed the instructions perfectly. but one thing must have gone wrong because now whenever i try to use my wiper fluid the radio turns off then when i let go of the switch it turns back on. and the fluid never sprays.
