Start by checking the fuse. If it's bad replace it. If good then find the positive side of the motor and jump it directly to the positive side of the battery. If the motor runs then you know the problem is the switch or relay. If it doesn't then the motor is at fault. To check the relay remove it from the panel.

Most yj's had a relay panel box under the hood that housed the horn, wiper, fuel, headlight, and other relays. The wiper relay should be marked. Look under the relay for its number and circuit diagram. Compare it to the other relays. Most times you will find the headlight relay or fuel relay is the same. Try one in the wiper socket. If it works then replace the relay. If it doesn't then all that is left is the switch. If the switch is part of the steering column then checking it will involve removing the steering wheel.

Best is to let a Jeep Tech. do this especially if there is an air bag involved. Special tools needed. However if the switch is assessable then simply place a jump wire across the terminals to test. Good Luck and let me know how you make out.

    I found out the circuit breaker at the under dash fuse block was tripping. The cause turned out to be the wiper intermittent module. I removed it and hooked up the male/female connection and the wipers ran. I may replace it at a later date. Thanks for your input. However there was no relay in the control box next to the battery.

97 jeep cj windows and wipers stopped working fuses are ok


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.

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,,

Jeep wrangler wiper fluid will not dispense on front windsheld but will on the rear


Switch is faulty is the first thing comes to my mind. Your spot on tho in your diagnosis, although you may have two pumps and tanks, one for front, one for rear. I would check all my fuses just to be sure, and I would look at all my waster tubes and make sure they are not clogged, check your nozzles too, as sometimes wax can clog them up.

The whipers on my 93 jeep wrangler wont work


when they do not work turn the key to the run position, the vehicle does not need to be running, and the wipers set to high speed whack the wiper motor with the handle end of a large screwdriver. if the motor starts to work replace it.

I have a 1995 Jeep Wrangler and want to change the turn signal lever from "high Low' wipers to "intermittent" wipers. How do I do this?


you will also possibly require a diffrent wiper motor as well as the switch assy. Call Jeep and see if the motor too is different, also the wiring harness(might be a project), and you may need to remove the steering wheel on the jeep to access the switch.....not sure on the 1995

WIPERS STOPPED WORKING ON 99JEEP WRANGLER


what you want to do is take a test light find the electrical plug thats hooked to wiper motor, either unhook it and test the plug with switch and key on or poke in the wires and see if it lights test light, if no light then i would say its switch, if it lights than its wiper motor. I don't know of any relay for wipers.
