Where is the BCM on a 97 GC and what does it look like?

Sweet writeup

While you fix the front wipers why not fix the back as well

Re this link
I did this shaft repair a few weeks ago on a seized 96 flipglass hatch wiper motor but on mine the circuit board had a burn across it similar to that shown on the wiper module in this thread.
I soldered a piece of buss wire from terminal to terminal over the burnt section and it works fine.

I tore the wiper module of my '93 apart a while ago, hoping to find a corroded shaft, unfortunately the shaft was fine, the circuit board looks fine and the motor doesn't run at all when I apply 12VDC to it... looks like it's dead.

Cuz it's good stuff!

I've refered a few people to this thread. In fact I refered it to someone on another forum last nite.

It should be posted in the writeup section or at least stickied.
Maybe we should have a "What every ZJ owner will have to fix at some point" area where we could post all these repair writeups. Ha! :-)

Hey guys, I'm having the symptoms of this problem right now because I left my wipers on and it snowed overnight....

Anyways, I did this twice on my old 94 ZJ... but now I have a 99WJ and I I have gotten to the module itself, I can't find out how to disconnect the box. It looks totally different. Or should I just be looking at the fuse in the fuse box???

Thanks.

Thanks, now be sure not to put you wipers on when there is snow on the windshield be sure to clear it all off.The reason they break is from the wipers being turned on and being kept from moving.

The WJ's wipers are controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM). Check your fuses.

I swapped out the "AC clutch" fuse with the "Wiper Hi/Lo" fuse nothing. I even tried swapping "Wiper On/Off" with "Wiper Hi/Lo" and nothing again.

I have the EXACT symptoms that people previously had in this thread. Intermittent not working, wipers won't return to "down" position, etc...


Am I switching out the right fuses? Is that all there is to it? Do I need to reset the computer by disconnecting the battery for a bit?



Thanks.

Sorry to bring this back from the dead but here is my problem. Yesterday I could only get my wipers to work work by turning them to high. While on the high setting they would move at the speed like they were on low. They would then stop at whatever position they were in when I would turn them to off. I did the soldering trick and now everything works perfect except my low and high both seem to be the same speed. Does anyone have any ideas? Should I buy a new delay module?

10 minutes and some solder and the wipers are working harder than a Kathy Lee sweatshop employee.

Thanks for the writeup and the smarts to do more than just put a new one in. If I took a picture of the circuit board it looked exactly like yours.

Thanks again, now I just have to get the cruise fixed.

Wiper Delay Not Working

1995 Grand Cherokee - I've been reading all your posts about wipers not working correctly. I have similar problem. Mine work on low, high and wash cycles but stopped on all intermittent cycles. Replaced switch first, still nothing. Just wanted to confirm with you, I have the int-wiper module (because it's a 1995) and it should be located under the dash on driver's side, correct so far? It will look like the pix that were posted?
Does all this sound about right? Thanks in advance for your reply.
