Check the wires that come through the tailgate, constant flexing may cause a brakw in one of the wires also with all these stopping at the same time they probably share the same ground. If you apply a ground wire to the circuit and it works you must find where it is broken and repair it.

02 liberty rear wiper dose not work plugin has power changed wiper motor still doses work


There is a nut under the black plastic bezel that needs to be removed. Here is the complete procedure for you to look at. Its possible that your arm isn't adjust at wiper motor...

REMOVAL
- Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
- Remove the rear wiper arm from the rear wiper motor output shaft. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL / REAR WIPERS / WASHERS/REAR WIPER ARM - REMOVAL).
- Using a small thin-bladed tool, gently pry at the notch in the base of the rear wiper motor output shaft bezel to unsnap the nut cover from the bezel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL). Be certain to take proper precautions to protect the outer tailgate panel and its paint finish from damage during this procedure.
- Remove the nut that secures the rear wiper motor output shaft to the outer swing gate panel (REAR WIPER MOTOR OUTPUT SHAFT NUT REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Remove the bezel and gasket from the rear wiper motor output shaft.
- Remove the trim panel from the tailgate inner panel. (Refer to 23 - BODY/SWING GATE/TRIM PANEL - REMOVAL).
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the flip-up glass ajar switch from the flip-up glass latch connector receptacle.
- Disconnect the tailgate wire harness connector for the rear wiper motor from the motor connector receptacle (REAR WIPER MOTOR REMOVE/INSTALL).
- Loosen the two screws that secure the rear wiper motor mounting bracket to the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Slide the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket forward far enough to disengage the two mounting screws from the keyed slots in the top of the tailgate inner panel.
- Remove the rear wiper motor and mounting bracket from the tailgate as a unit.

2 - OUTPUT SHAFT
3 - TAILGATE OUTER PANEL
4 - NUT
5 - NUT COVER

What you will need to do is to remove the small plastic cap on the wiper arm by prying it off with a screw driver. Then remove the nut that holds the arm onto the shaft. Then get yourself a battery cable puller (from auto parts store) and pull the arm off of the shaft..

My 2004 Ford Expedition will not spray windshield wiper when the button is pushed. The wipers do turn on, but no spray. Would this be caused by a fuse (the wipers do turn on) or is the motor bad?


Can you hear the washer pump running when you operate the washer switch? The washer pump is in the bottom (side) of the washer fluid reservoir. You should hear it running. If not, you can disconnect the wire connector at the pump and use a test light to check to see if there is power and ground at the connector when you operate the switch. If there is power and ground, replace the washer pump motor. If there is no power or ground, you most likely have a bad washer control switch. (You have to replace the entire Multifunction Switch)

If you can hear the pump running, check for washer fluid pouring on the ground. If this is the case, you have a broken hose between the washer pump and the jets that spray on your windshield.

Also note that there is no way possible that your problem could be CAUSED by a fuse!
For more information on this subject, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

Air bag light is on 96 grand caravan


i may be mistaken on if this applies to your model year but if the rear wiper does not work then check the fuse for rear wiper and replace if blown. make sure rear wiper switch is off and wiper is parked.if air bag light goes out after a few seconds then the rear wiper motor is bad causing fuse to blow. air bag module gets power for its fuse through wiper fuse.if wiper is not parked then fuse may blow when you turn yhe key on.you have two choices. replace wiper motor or remove tailgate door panel and unplug the motor

The rear wiper on my 99 Bravada has quit working. It made about 2 passes over the window before it completely stopped. How do i go about replacing the rear wiper motor?


Unscrew inside panel on tailgate (3 screws-1 each side, 1 in the middle), unclip and remove by pulling up and out towards the rear. Unscrew all screws holding steel plate down, unclip plastic clips that hold the rod running behind the plate and unhook rod at top of that opens the window. Unclip wiring harnesses, remove wiper from the outside (1 nut holding it down)and unbolt the motor. It is pretty self explanatory once you have the steel plate removed, just remove and install the screws and clips in the same order and try it out before you put all your screws back into the steel plate since there are so many. Back window must be closed for wiper motor to work. To save yourself from replacing the motor with a new one, 9 out of 10 times it is simply the locking washer has come off of the gear inside the motor, if you pop off the plastic motor cover you will see the washer is off the gears are out of place. I realigned the gear and replaced the washer with a "C" clip and it has been working great for over a year!

Check to be sure there is not a seperate fuse for the wiper. Check power and ground at the motor. if you have power and ground replace the motor. if you don't, check for a break in the wires where the harness bends at the tailgate. take the interior door trim apart to unlock and open then inspect the inside of the door and all components. i can't really help with seeing it. the econolines have issues with the lock cylinders.

Tailgate door and window won't open


Check in your user's manual for your fuse location on the rear windshield wiper. These grand cherokee's have electronic actuators in every door. Inside these actuators they have very little motors and move everything via plastic. Very bad design flaw, as most of these actuators are 300-400 dollars to replace. You can find ones in salvage yards for 50 though. On your rear hatch, the door and the window are run by this actuator.
