Wire amp to rear wiper motor power

I want to wire my amp in the back of my jeep to the cable that connects to the rear wiper motor/rear defroster for the hard top. i think i have to make the jeep "think" it's connected to the hard top first by connecting some wires, but idk what. i believe it does this so wiper fluid doesn't accidentally get pumped with no hard top. by wiring it to the power output, it would turn off with the key, i wouldn't have to run power back there, and i can turn it off/on with the pre-installed switch.

    so, you're saying that it's not a simple 12 volt output back there.

    Not a good idea to do that. Systems used throught the vehicle are calibrated for different loading and body control etc will not "understand" the load variation.

How can I test my motor for my rear wiper to see if it has voltage going to it. I own a 1997 jeep grand cherokee. The rear defroster does not work at all and the fuse is good.


power and ground. wiper motor should have two wires, one is power one is ground. give direct feed and you know its working. if you want to test the wires, run a test light or multimeter from the output wires (to the wiper) then activator the wiper switch. if you are getting power on your testlight, you know the wire is good :D

1997 expedition, rear wiper motor does not run...trying to find wiring diagram of wiring to rear motor, specifically if there is a connector somewhere up under the headliner toward the back of the car that...


There could be a number of issues to look at. Does the motor work or is it a broken wireor is the fuse blown or bad ground to wiper motor. Check fuses first if O.K. go to the rear door panel & access the motor. Once there check the ground connection & make sure motor is well grounded. Turn motor switch on & using a probe tester check to see if power is getting to motor. If it is not, go to the wiring harness flex point between door & frame & pry back outer covering to reveal the wires. Check for a broken wire.If you have power & ground is good Take motor off & check motor on the bench using A 12 volt power scource. If it does not work replace motor. If this advice helps please fell free to recommend accordingly. Thanks!

Jeep Cherokee 2000


these are totally separate circuits and therefore 2 different issues and unrelated, most likely u will need a window lift motor to fix the rear window issue, as far as the rear wiper goes a common issue is the wiring breaking from years of opening and closing the lift gate, the rear wiper most likely isn't getting any power as a result of this wiring damage.

2003 Jeep Liberty rear wiper does not work


If there is a separate switch for the rear wiper there might be a separate fuse. Check to see if your rear window cleaner works. If it doesn't check your fuse. If it does work i suggest that you replace the switch or check the connections of the switch. I hope this helps.
