Rear wiper will not turn off even when using control switch


Most likely it's your rear wiper motor, unless there's a short somewhere in your wiring leading to your motor. It's a little tricky to get to, to replace it, but very doable. If you don't want to replace it then you can just unplug the connecter right on the motor to make it stop.

To take the motor off you'll have to take off the rear hatch interior plastic cover, remove a few bolts inside, and then take off the wiper and arm to remove a large bolt. I have a 1999 grand cherokee and had three bad rear wiper motors with different problems. I just gave up and don't use it anymore :(

Also, if you're really bad with cars, you can just take the whole wiper and arm off until someone else can fix it :)

My rear wiper doesnt work at all on my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I turn the control on, and still nothing. I was just wondering different areas I could check to figure out what is wrong.

its more than likely the wiper motor, as the rear wipe isnt really used that much they tend to seize up. if you turn the wiper on then manually push the wiper arm to help it move, if it moves or atempts to move you can usually free it up with a can of wd40 and a bit of patients.
hope this helps

Rear wiper goes too slow and sometimes does not go at all

The motor is worn out. Remove the wiper arm and remove the interior trim panel to gain access. Once you see it, the rest of the procedure will be self-explanatory. I hope this helps.
