    I have a 2001 Cherokee Classic and one day the rear wiper and rear washer fluid quit working. Then a few days later I noticed the rear defroster wasn't working. Then they worked for a few days, then they quit and haven't worked in months. Fuses are good. When I turn on the defroster, I can hear the relay "click" on the passengers side, so it can't just be bad switches. Any ideas??? Thanks

If you just installed the hardtop you may need to have the dealer update the front control module to let it know they are there

Windshield wipers stop working when the defroster is on


The only thing they have in common is the ignition switch.

My turn signals, windshield wipers and rear window defroster stopped working all at the same time. The fuse and multi-function switch are both fine.


Check all fuses with test light or multimeter. I tend to agree with you that it is probably a fuse. Not knowing of any "hidden" fuses or in-line fuses on that system. But sometimes other fuses that are not labeled as wiper or turn signal might be used for power also. So, check all fuses including the ones under the hood.

Rear wiper, rear defroster & rear wiper fluid all stopped working at the same time. bought a new rear wiper motor installed it and nothing... anyone having or had the same problem in the past?


Check fuse panel ...if fuses for those rear devices are OK look at the wiring at the rear hatch. Possibly inside that door, or a ground condition that is not functioning or disconnected connector related to electrical devices in the rear hatch door.
Good luck!

My rear wipers, rear washer and rear defrost stopped working. I have changed the fuses. what else would cause these 3 to stop?


I had the same problem, 97 4 runner. I followed #1 solution: start engine, lower rear window, raise/close rear window. Turn off engine, restart engine and it should re-set. It did for me.

Which fuse is for the rear window wiper and rear window defogger on 2003 Toyota 4Runner (V6)?


You Have one fuse for the wipers in the car. Left side of steering wheel and the back cover should list the fuses and location. The other box is located in the engine compartment above the battery. They should list the fuse locations under the compartment covering the fuses. Hope that helps

Which fuse controls the rear defroster?


fuse No. 9 powers the solid state time inside rear defogger control and washer/wiper switch.There is also a circuit breaker 15 that provides the actual power for the defroster grid. Fuse 10 provides power for the wiper/washer function. Fuses and circuit breaker are located in the Instrument panel fuse block.

My 4 runner rear window wiper,washer and defroster won't work after pressing window down button on remote control. Any suggestions?


Just wanted to pass this on. My rear wiper and washer would not work. Solved problem by raising and lowering rear window. The rear window in the cold weather had dropped just low enough that the safty switch would not let the washer and wiper come on. Got this idea from the internet.
