Windshield Wipers Stopped Working!
I have an 05 Wrangler TJ Unlimited and I am having a bit of a problem with it. It started out with the fact that my key would not turn over the vehicle. It would turn it over very intermittently. I first tried to solve this issue by using a push button method like I had read about on several of these forums. I tried to tie into a Pink Wire with an orange stripe in it (located in the steering column, I was under the impression this was the wire that lead to the starter relay in order to start the vehicle), and I connected that with a 12v Constant power wire I also found in the steering column. Upon connecting these two to the push button switch I purchased, it did not start the vehicle. To make a long story short, my starting issue ended up being a clutch safety switch which I was able to override by putting a fuse in the "Clutch Override" spot in the fuse panel under the hood.
Now my jeep starts up fine without having to push in the clutch (not exactly what i wanted but it will work until I can get a new clutch safety switch. Unfortunately since I have done this my windshield wipers don't work anymore. No speed variation works and neither does the windshield washer fluid nozzle. I have checked the fuse under the dash to see if I may have blown it when playing with my steering column but the fuse it not blown and all the connections to the lever on the steering column appear to have a good connection.
I am wondering if anyone can help me troubleshoot this issue? This is my first jeep and I am trying to figure this out on my own but I am hard pressed to find the answer.
Any help is appreciated and I thank you for your time.
