I believe its a t25 torx to get the screws out of the cover and also you will need a 7mm wrench to remove the screw that is behined the sterring wheel(no room for the torx driver.good luck

Ypu need to pull the upper and lower covers that wrap around the column where the switches are.There are 3 or 4 screws that are on the bottom half that need to be removed.You need a certain size torx bit or a phillips for these types of screws.Carefully take the covers off and you should see where the switch mounts and wires plug in.

How to fix wiper linkage


Order a new one on the internet and just replace it. You can buy generic parts for the arms but they won't last.

97 jeep cj windows and wipers stopped working fuses are ok


97 wrangler right? CJ ended in 86 (last year)
97 TJ, you mean, or was posting to Cherokee correct all along./?????
factoid:
The Chrysler Corporation bought out AMC in 1987, shortly after the Jeep CJ was replaced with the AMC-designed Jeep Wrangler or YJ.


test the fuse, looking only finds the ones blow to H3LL
they can in fact just crack a bit. and are in fact bad.
use any DMM or any ohmmeter, "resistance Rx1 or RX2 range , low range) 0 ohms good, , infinity bad.
only that works. every time.
lets read the FSM together.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
wipers first. USA not export.
Front wiper not rear. ok>?
page 8w-53 wiper schematic.

fuse 2 and 3 must be good.
then fuse 14 front wiper ,fuse 12 is rear
if the fuses are good, (truely) we never ohm fuses we use VOLTS
on both sides of fuse, volts never lies.
then what is bad, easy bad wiper switch, motor or ground to motor.
the voltmeter again wins the toss and if no 12vdc to motor
then the switch or wire are bad.
if you have 12v to motor then motor is bad , if ground to motor is no cut.

now windows. what windows, are then not crank windows or zipper windows?

i think you posted wrong car,,

I can't get my windshield wipers to turn off, any suggestions?


The problem may be the windshield wiper switch on the steering wheel. My switch broke when I turned on my windshield washer fluid. It remain in the down position. All I did was put a peice of folded paper underneath the wiper switch to hold it in the up postion. That should keep them from coming on until you replace the whole wiper switch.

Used 97 honda accord wiper switch


Ask people at Junk Jard - they are professionals in their business. In most cases they will tell you you which car is suitable for donation.
Also, before you install the old switch, carefully dissemble, clean and lubricate with electric lubricant or Vaseline. It will help to prolong the life for forever.
Good luck.

On my 97 pontiac bonneville my windshield wipers do not go all the way down to where they should rest. i was going to remove them and put them back on at a different position so they would go all the way...


On your wiper switch you have a park position and on your wiper motor the same.It takes a little experience to mess with this problem.
without looking at it I would say your switch is no working allowing the arms to rest in the park position.
