Wiper motor bad in 1996 grand cherokee?
We bought this car last year for my son, to drive to the local college.. it was beat up and has a lot f odd things wrong with it but gets him to school. (His first car)
The wipers have worked till two days ago.. when he mentioned it, we tried them again, and they worked for a few mins then stopped.
Fuse seems fine, (did continuity test on it) we seem to have power all the way to the wiper motor.
We were going to buy a new motor but the last test we did has us wondering if the motor is not bad.
If you have the motor hooked up, and ground it, with either a wire to the chassis or having the motor lay on the metal chassis it works. But it only works one speed, and hi, lo or off does not work using the switch by the steering wheel.
Not sure what else to check. Ideas?
