Wipers

Got quite a bit of rain today and I discovered my wipers don't work. It's a 95 yj what do I need to check besides the fuse?

Grab a test light and check the power at the fuse box. Then test the relay.

Yep, always start with the easiest, the fuse.

Ok I checked all fuses under the dash and they are all good. Wipers don't appear to be marked on the cover so I checked them all

Wipers are on the 5.5A circuit breaker in the under dash fuse panel.

Pull the intermittent wiper control box out. It has in and out harness connectors. The 2 connectors will plug into each other.

If the box is bad (most are at this age) your system will have off, low and high but no intermittent.

The solder work in these control boxes is sloppy, you can easily repair them once you drill the rivets out.

It is shaped like a pack of cigerettes, but 1/2 the size.

As you sit in the driver seat it is behind the dash about where your left knee is. It is often velcroed to a sheet metal bracket. It has a plastic case, most are black, but white and green have also been seen

Just pulled the module out and plugged the connectors together and still nothing. The washer pump works either way.

Sounds like it is time to get your multi-meter out and drop the windshield. Start at the ww motor and work your way back till you find the problem.

If you have power at the mptpr and a good ground, motor is bad.

Drop the windshield, mine has broke the linkage twice.

See if you can hear it running.

Forgot I posted this already. I put a motor in yonite and the wipers now work. Only problem is they lean toward the driver side. Did I do something wrong? It looks funny lol

Sounds like you have the linkage indexed incorrectly on the motor shaft.
