2003 Jeep Liberty rear wiper does not work

The rear wiper on my 2003 Jeep Liberty does not work. We took it into a shop, which initially tried replacing the motor. This did not work, and since they did not do electrical work, did not investigate further. What else could be wrong with the wiper, and how much will it cost to repair?

Check fuse number 9 a 50 amp fuse in the power distribution center under the hood and fuse number 17 a 15 amp fuse in the junction block . The ground wire near the wiper motor may be bad and its possible the switch position for the rears may be bad.

If there is a separate switch for the rear wiper there might be a separate fuse. Check to see if your rear window cleaner works. If it doesn't check your fuse. If it does work i suggest that you replace the switch or check the connections of the switch. I hope this helps.

How is it not working, entirely not running, or just doesn't come in contact with the glass?

REAR WINDOW FEATURES
Rear Window Wiper/Washer
A rotary ring switch on the control lever, located on the
right side of the steering column, controls operation of
the rear wiper/washer function. Rotating the center of
the switch up to the DEL (Delay) position or the ON
position will activate the wiper. Rotating the switch ring
beyond the ON or OFF position will activate the rear
washer. The wash pump will continue to operate as long
as the lever or ring is engaged. Upon release, the wipers
will cycle three times before returning to the set position.

Gate light on my Jeep liberty is on, gate is closed and locked


The gate light on my 2002 Liberty was on for a long time and I researched on this site about it but ended up just hitting the trip meter button after starting up and that canceled it out. The other day my rear window wiper was not working and my security system had quit working also. Looking at the book in the fuse section I found that the rear window wiper is on it's own fuse, number 17 in my 2002. I took that fuse out and looked at it and it seamed good, no break or burn marks. I replaced the fuse anyway and low and behold the rear window wiper worked, the gate light went out, and the security system was working again. I could not find a fuse for the security system of the gate light.....they are all on the rear wiper fuse. Problem solved, hope this helps you, I found it purely by accident.

Rear windshield wiper sprayer doesn't work but the fronts work fine 2002 jeep liberty limited


The rear wiper has its own pump motor. pull the hose from the wiper and have someone engage to see if there is a clog. do the same at the motor. if bo liquid comes out then its the pump. also check fluid level in reservoir as well as a possible secondary reservoir

Jeep Liberty '03...need to repair rear window washer/sprayer and probably tube....that snapped off. Parts needed? Access through bumper?? Thank you for ANY suggestions.


Not so simple procedure, try and follow all your steps and replace all screws...Not familiar much with the Liberties but, usually access to the wiper will be somewhere in the back of the hatch. You can pretty much figure it out from there.
