Jeep LIbery rear windshield wiper not working

2 dealers cannot figure out why the rear windshield wiper will not work. They tried installing a new motor, new fuse, completely re-traced the wiring throughout the whole vehicle (no problems). Can this problem be fixed? It has spent 2 weeks in 2 different shops with no solution.

    my rear windshield wiper blade went halfway and then stopped in the middle. Unfortunately, not thinking, I opened the rear gate and now the window cannot close due to the wiper being half up. How do I take the wiper blade off so I can close it. Has anyone found the solution to this problem? It's not the fuse and I don't want to be stuck in auto shop hell like the last writer.

    Same thing happened to me, turned on the rear wiper and it stopped halfway through. Won't go back down. When it did go the whole way through the wiper cycle it was very slow.

It sounds like you've traced everything except the actual switch or possible the relay. check the moter ground that goes to the body.

    On my wife's 02 I have traced power from the constant and power from the "intermittent" and "on" positions of the switch. I have also confirmed good ground. The only wire not working properly is the yellow/white from the "tailgate flipup ajar switch" as the Chilton's puts it. This makes sure the rear glass is closed since the wiper is mounted to the door. Since it has no power out even manually activating the latch I can only assume this is the problem. My jobber cost is about 100 from the dealer. It is an assembly of latch and switch.

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

Windshield Wipers won't spray 2004 Rav4


I think the dealer is mistaken, the is a washer jar for the front and one for the rear. be sure fluid is pure, and undiluted. clean out front washer jar, if it has been contaminated with any wrong fluid it will never flush it self out. Second point is front washer pump may have minor seal concern that is only apparent when cold. if first step does not cure, I would recommend repalcing pump. Keep me posted

You have a motor for the front and rear washer. Check the fuses. If the intermitted wipers does not work, there is a relay under the dash near the steering colum that needs to be replaced.

Damn dealers. No schematic needed. Open your hood. Just below your windshield you will see vents and through those you will see your wiper motor and arm. You might need to replace the bushing which is probably what broke.

Front windshield wiper blades


The 2006 Toyota RAV4 takes a 24" drivers side, 17" passenger side and has a special 17" rear blade. Don't just go by lengths though - when buying windshield wiper blades be sure to always use the application guide book at the store or now-a-days you can Google 'lookup wiper size'.

You want to look this up because correct wiper fit is more than correct length, it's also proper attachement. Not all attachments fit all arms. Using the application guide or looking up wiper size online will avoid headaches of buying the right lengths with the wrong attachements.

The replacement wiper blades will come with step-by-step, illustrated instructions and once you have the instructions and the wiper blades/arms in your hands in front of you, it will all make better sense and will an easy maintenance task. Very simple and takes 5-15 minutes usually not requiring any tools. If in your budget, upgrade to the newer-style frameless "beam blades" which perform better than conventional framed wipers. I use Trico NeoForm Beam Blades which are fantastic. Hope this helps!

PS: Your question is about the front blades but if you address the rear blade too, this vehicle has what they call a "Roc Lock 2" rear arm. You can go to your dealer or I know Trico makes an "Exact Fit Rear Integral Blade 12-A". There may be others available too. I've got the Trico on my Jeep and it fits/works great.
