Well i started installing this and i ran into some troubles..
So i had to add my own wiring from the defrogger switch/wiper to the actual harness which i did. Now reading the instructions i pulled out the red 10 way connector and it tells me to plug in the 4 wires.. So then i realize that im still left with Brown/Light green which apparently is the wiper park.
So now im completely lost as i dont know what to do with this..
I guess the switch wiring i did to the harness is wrong..??
Well i gave up with the wiring harness to hell with it after spending 2 days just trying to figure out whats going on wit the harness itself. Word of advice, dont buy the wiring harness out of a jeep that comes factory wired with a hardtop!! As the wires do not match up like the instructions say and it really complicates stuff.
So i went onto a simpler thing.
I ran the wiper to a relay and using the wiper switch (not done yet).
So this is what i have currently.
30 - 20amp fuse to positive terminal of batt
87A- wiper parked (BR/LG)
87 - wiper run wire (BR/PK)
85 - grounded (tied into the hardtop ground wire - which is tied into the chassis)
86 - BR/LG from switch..
Now the back of the stock wiper switch has 6 wires.. which ill only be using 4..
Black - grounded.. BR/PK bring to positive terminal of batt with a 10AMP fuse.. And BR/LG run to 86 like mentioned above.
The switch has also a orange wire which is used as a illumination so i might tap into the orange wire behind the bezel if i feel like it.
Can someone just confirm with me the way i have this wired.. This is just for the wiper of course. Dont plan on using the washer part which then is in position of the switch.
Your absolutely right the only reason i cant get myself to fork over the money for it considering the jeep is not really winter driven. The hardtop would only get used for about 2months tops. I just figured it would be nice to have the wiper working atleast..
While im at this. I figured Id ask you guys and see if there is any responses..
I currently have fog lights, driving lights with their separate relays and runs to the battery, sharing a common ground between the 2 different switches.
I was gonna place the wiper switch in there, and checked on the FSM and apparently the ORANGE wire is for illumination, my 3rd blank spot has a plug thats in it and apparently its for fog lights. Now my jeep never came factory wired for fogs lights so i installed that myself.
My question is, can i splice into that orange wire and run that to my fog light switch, driving light switch and now wiper switch. This would be in order to clean up some of the wire runs that are happening and save me 2 runs to the battery in the engine bay compartment.
Or is the illumination wire only for when i actually turn on my headlights and it lights up the interior when its dark?
