Windshield Wiper relay fuse?

My windshield wipers stopped working. I thinkt he problem is with my fuses. SO I am going to remove the fuse (in the pbc, the black box next to my battery under the hood) for my windshiled wipers, because I am thinking that the fuse is blown. My problem is that I don't know which one is the fuse for the windshield wiper. Most of the fuses are labeled, like ABS or engine starter, or A/C, but there is not one for windshield wipers.
There is one that says Alt 1, and another that says Alt 2. Could these be the fuses for my wipers?

Also, my stereo no longer works either (stopped working the same time my wipers stopped working), which makes me even more convinced that it is because I blew one of my fuses.

Any help appreciated.
Thanks!

by the way Stan...is just the intermittent wipers not working and low and high speed working...or do they not work period. If the relay doesn't work then it may be the multi function switch on the steering column. Hope it is just the relay (13$ part at pep boys).

I think the relay box is different for a 93 vs a 96, I too have been searching for the relay and my relay box looks completely different than yours... On the lid there is nothing that says windshield wipers. Is there another place where it might be?

I don't know what to tell you...I figured that from 93-98 they were alike. I can suggest pulling a good relay and swapping out with the rest and hopefully you will find the bad one. Meaning turn on the wipers and start swapping relays till the wipers come on. If that doesn't work then it isn't the relay. Could you post a pic of your pdc and maybe I can see what yours looks like and research from there.

If its any help this is the fusebox of a 95. I think the wipers are controlled by the wiper module under the driver side kick panel, not a relay.

The radio and wipers are on different fuses on the 95..




Radio is #19
Front Wipers #27

hope it helps.. when you pull the fuse cover off there should be a diagram on the cover..

I just figured out there is a relay center under the glove box in a 93-95 grand. I wonder if one of the relays under there would control the wipers? I can't find a diagram showing what they go to though. I'll take a picture of it later on. There is like 4 bigger relays about 4 smaller relays. If anyone knows what they are maybe this could help us out.

thanks for all the support guys. I just started my jeep up again today and miraculously the wipers and stereo started working again.
So I think my problem is jsut a loose wire somewhere. I will leave this at that, Ill make anotehr thread abotu loose wires. so all the other people can get help with their fuse problems.

nash md, to answer your question, both of them dont work. Before, my wipesr would only work on high and low. ANd then they stopped working at all. But i think I can solve the problem, I will just solder the dead wire under my drivers side kick panel. However I still dont know why my wipers will sometimes just stop working entirely
thanks guys

I found the module deal and it definitly controls it. Now I am not sure what is going on with mine. I busted out the volt-meter and did a couple tests. When I tested the switch harness, power came thru on all different speed settings. The same amount of power went through the module when connected to the switch. The grey harness (which goes to the wipers) when connected to the module shows nothing on the voltmeter. Why would the switch send power, the module show the exact same thing but nothing goes into the wiper harness?

No, I have high and low speeds but I don't have any of the intermitant speed settings. Also, the wipers don't reset when turned from low or high settings.

i have the same problem as guumba.
my wipers work now, they jsut only work on high and low, adn they don't reset.
guumba: did you try looking under your drivers side kick panel, and removing the ciruit board with two screws in it? Look there, and see if there is bad wiring

All I see under the kick panel is the wiper module and another set of wires which goes into the door.

ahh.. never mind. There is no such thing. I was misinformed. Try looking inside the wiper module and see if any wires are gone. I looked inside mine, but all the wires seem o.k.
What else could cause my intermittent wipers to go dead?
