Question about 1988 Jeep Wrangler

Windshield wipers do not work

I have a 2000 jeep TJ and periodically the wipers won't work .It seems to happen when we have had snow and temperatures are below freezing.My friend has a 1998 Jeep and the same thing happened to his Jeep a few days ago.I recall on one occassion,I was driving along and all of a sudden,they started working again.I am thinking that perhaps something is freezing up ???I was wondering if other Jeep owners have experienced the same thing and if so...did they solve the problem and how?

Thanks

this is part time 4wd, and is not for dry pavement
dry means , devoid of ice, and snow.
that is why its called Part time and not full time 4wd.
so what are the tires touching, we cant see you ?
dirt (all offroad, 4wd works)
pavement (no)
ice (yes)
snow (yes)

one tire must be on a slippery surface or bad happens to
YOU and the drive line. and others, you hit.

then added it again. or did it anon.,?
I answsered this yesterday, on TJ.

My windshields wipers wont work


If that happens, your windshield wipers will not work at all and you won't be able to clear any water, dirt, or snow that ends up on your windshield. Replace the windshield wiper motor right away. The windshield wiper fuse is burnt out. When the windshield wiper motor is overloaded, the fuse burns out.23 Nov 2015

Windshield wipers stopped working with heavy snow cover


The windshield wiper circuit has an circuit breaker in it, under heavy load this breaker trips to protect the wiper motor, when the motor cools, the breaker resets automatically restoring proper wiper action.

Windshield wiper on car iced up during snow/driving could not see


You can usually avoid that by using a good quality winter mix washer fluid that resists freezing, making sure the wipers are cleared of ice before beginning the drive and using the defroster to keep the windshield warm. In extreme conditions you just need to pull over and manually clean the ice off by hand.(only do that where it's safe). There are also specially designed wiper blades that will also help a bit.

My windshield wipers stopped working after a big snow storm. (1997 Jeep Cherokee)


You should check your fuses first. What may of happened is that the wiper motor could be frozen if the wiper arms are frozen in ice. Another thing that may of happened is that the wipers were used to clear the windshield instead of clearing it manually. When that is done if there is too much snow or it is a heavy snow the wiper motor will burn up or go bad due to the fact that it does not have enough power to do such things.

1998 Jeep Wrangler Electrical Short in Steering Column?


I had a similar problem with my 2000 Jeep TJ and I found the problem in the wiring harness under the hood.several wires were corroded and almost burnt off.If you remove the black tape which keeps the harness bundled together and if you see evidence of "green" type powder or "gook" it's most likely where the wires have faulted.
