Wipers start when I start the jeep

Searched it and couldn't find my problem...

When I start my Jeep after it sitting outside overnight (humid nights here) my wipers will turn on (without moving the arm) for about 2-3 minutes then stop automatically and function normally.

Doesn't sound like the typical motor burn out.

SYE & CV | RE Rear Upper adj control arms | Mountaineer rack | Chrome Options | Infinity Perfect System w/ 12"

Just threw in a D44, with an Eaton E-Locker, 4.56 Gears, and a poision spider diff cover to boot!

sounds like the switch to me. You can get some contact cleaner from Radio Shack and spray that in the switch. Costs like 5 dollars for a small can. Has worked for me on a couple things.

Check for a bad grounds. That is frequently the culprit.

2003 SE, 4.88's, Yukon axles, Rancho springs, JKS Disco's & MML, RE trackbars, ZJ steering, and a bunch of other stuff my wife hasn't found out about...
