Having windshield wiper/washer problems? Here are some more common problems.

  • Motor:
The wiper motor is commonly replaced and was often not the problem. Don't replace the motor yet. maybe it's not the motor. It could be a fuse or something at the wiper switch. The wiper motor has two windings, fast and slow. The wiper switch sends a ground signal to each motor winding. More often, there are problems with the relay, or at the wiper switch, or in the cable to the motor.
  • Windshield Washer:
Don't be too quick to replace the washer pump. The problem is often just a clog in the sprayer heads. You can clean out the sprayer holes with a needle, some have two holes, so look closely. Hope this helps.

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,,

SOURCE: power windows won t work

There are broken wires in the wiring harness between the frame and your driver's side door. These wires control all the windows and door locks in a 95 Jeep. Same thing happened to me. You will have to cut the rubber boot to get it off and check which wires are broken and repair them.

SOURCE: 2000 jeep cherokee sport fuse diagram

Likely you are looking for a 30 amp circuit breaker...(Looks like a small rectangular metal fuse) But...if the power door locks work, i don't think that it's bad (serves locks & windows) My diagrams show a bunch of diodes and resistors inside the master (drivers) door switch, but I've had a few apart and never saw any. (embedded?) Personally I don't see anything that shows me reliability built into the switch...It's a really "iffy" design (one in my niece's Jeep only works when the sun shines on the drivers door) There is also a control module associated with the windows but I've never needed to replace one and the manuals never tell you where they are!
Check power at the switch and check harness where it goes through the rubber boot between the door and body. at least 80% of problems I've seen are either the switch or that wiring. Wires can be spliced and you can get a decent used switch at most scrap yards.
Good luck...glad they aren't stuck down!!!

SOURCE: windshield wipers stopped working on 1993 jeep cherokee

Did you plug them all back in? lol j/p

Do your blinkers and your back windshield wipers work? It's either electrical or mechanical. Turn them on and poke around to see if you hear the motor doing anything. If you hear it, it's probably a broken linkage. If not, start with the fuses and work from there.

It's possible that by unplugging the battery and then plugging it back it, the fuse for the wipers received an electrical surge, blowing it. Consult your manual to see where the fuse for your model is and check to see if it's blown.

Rear window wiper not working in 97 hyundai coupe


Remove the rear hatch door inner skin and check for power there.
If you have power, then the rear wiper motor has failed.
If no power, then check the rear wiper switch for power and operation.

Windows will not operate--don't know where fuse panel is


donot force the power windows if they arent working.The motor inside the door that operates the motor probably is jammed.The fuse must be behind the glove compartment near ECU fuse panel.if the Window fuse is bad then put a new one of the same rating.If that goes bad too, you need to check for three things.first check the window panel if it isnt short.if thats ok then you should check the window motors they are probably jammed and are putting too much load on the fuse to operate.lube them with WD 40 , also the window channels.if the problem fixes nothing to be done further.if fuse go bad again , you need to check the window panel wiring that might probably be short at some point.

My windows stopped working on my '97 saturn sl2. I have checked the relay switch and it was ok. I changed out the relay switch and still nothing. There is no fuse under the hood. Any ideas on what to do?


There IS a fuse under the hood...the green 30A big boy labeled power/convenience. Use a multimeter to check power coming into the relay...if it's not there probably the fuse. If it is there, could be the switches.

If it's the fuse, go to a junkyard and get one cheap. But then, they're pretty cheap new too.

My windshield wipers suddenly stopped working on my '96 Jeep Cherokee. I replaced a fuse that was bad, but they still don't work. Help!


if the fuse failed then that means one of few things...

1.) motor has failed causing excessive current draw
2.) circuit has direct short to ground
3.) short to ground that caused fuse failure is now an open

you need to check for power and ground at the wiper motor
