Weird problem with Lift Glass and Rear wiper motor...
So the rear wiper stopped working on my wife's 2003 Liberty last winter, got stuck halfway on the window. I recently got an used OEM wiper motor and replaced it. When I tried the rear wiper, all I hear is a click, like the motor is turning on but nothing happens. Then nothing happens at all, no response from the motor, no click if I turn it on again. If I try it the next day, it will click again and then be non-responsive. So I figured either the used motor was bad or I have other issues and perhaps the old motor wasn't bad in the first place.
Here is where things got weird. My wife tells me she went somewhere, locked the doors with the key fob, then as she was walking away, the alarm started going off. And then we notice the interior lights are on all the time and the dash says the rear lift glass is open. I can open and close it and it still thinks it's open. What is going on here, did I screw up some electrical when I replaced the motor? The install was very straightforward- unplug 3 connectors, 2 or 3 nuts and done...
