You don't know how this works do you ? Do you know what a chrysler , dodge , jeep (TIPM) is ? Totally integrated power module is ? Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop ! Without a factory scan tool you have no chance of fixing this ! The switch is a input to a control module ,this module is on what is called a serial data communication network . C.A.N. controller area network ! The (TIPM) is also on this network ,it turns on the wiper motor after it sees message on the network . Messing with the wrong wires jumping power here and there could cause major problems . If an when you take it to a dealer after you short out the vehicle ,it could cost big bucks .

Yes it is called the body control module and is notorious for going bad, don't try to save any money buying it in a junkyard since these modules are PART number specific to each van. The dealer will have to flash it which means you will spend about 900 to 1000 to replace it including labor. But it's the only way to get it to work.
Current goes from the switch to the body control module THEN to the wipers which is why they are not working.
