Rear Wiper Fuse?

I really need to 'disconect' my rear windshield wiper. i have to prevent power from getting to it.

you see, i have this electrical problem that when i turn on my headlights, my rear wiper starts 'wiping.' bug anoyance =(

anyone know if there is a fuse that i can just pluck out to make it stop working? if not a fuse, some other way i can prevent power from reaching the rear windshield wiper motor?

thanks in advance!

He means the rear tailgate (hatch). If you pull the interior off there will be a connector on the motor that you can just unplug.

Yes, I do not know if that is the best way to fix your problem but it is what the first person who posted was talking about. On the inside there will be a couple of screws, take those out and then just pull on the panel and it will pop off (atleast on my 89).

Did you look in the user manual for the fuse?

Maybe you should be looking for the problem that is causing the wiper to go on with the headlights.

Did you do a search, try here jeepsunlimited.com and naxja.com

Dude you need to look on the inside

take the panel off the inside of your lift gate. this will expose the rear speakers and rear wiper motor.

If the wiper is being activated by the headlights, then there is a good chance that the crossed connection is "downstream" (so to speak) of the fuse, which would mean that pulling it would have no effect. Your best bet is to temporarily pull the connector like described above, and then eventually find the problem and fix it.

Good Luck,
