Our windshield wiper motor ... this morning the motor did not want to function . It barely moved the wipers . By barely , I mean the blades moved maybe a 16th of an inch , no matter which setting we tried . I tried them a bit later and they started doing their job slowly and after running them for a bit , they started acting normally .

I'm thinking a corroded connection . Where would the most likely place be for that to happen ?
I suppose a twenty year old wiper motor could be worn out . Is that a common thing to happen ?

1995 Cherokee Country . Gone , but , not forgotten .

Goes around , comes around .

Long time no see.
Your diagnosis seems reasonable to me. The first place I would check is the drive motor electrical connector under the cowl panel. The motor itself is typically exceptionally long lived due to its relatively low duty cycle.

When I got home from a road trip to Michigan today, I found one of my LED pods missing.

It wouldn't have been a 2x3 with an orange zip tie about 4 inches up the loom would it?!

In all honesty they were supposed to be white I ordered reverse lights but they sent me brake lights. I was going to return them but they look badass and they fit perfect.

Long time ... We've been kinda busy > spent 3 weeks at a military basic training pace getting our house ready for sale . That paid off nicely as it sold within 6 hours after the first showing , for cash , for a few grand more than our listed price . And , we closed inside of 12 days . I guess I couldn't ask for a much better deal .

Then when we returned to our regularly scheduled life , we had a nature park to straighten up after a long winter of being neglected .

While in Michigan , I took my '57 Simplex out of storage . Storage did it little good and I've been working on returning it to it's former glory .

I have been lurking this site lately , when I happen to be awake enough to remember to click the URL . Gotta keep an eye on you guys , ya know .

Anyway , Thanks for the reply , Chris . I'll pull the cowl . The drain holes likely need cleaning , too .

For the record , our trusty XJ has been keeping us on the road , but for a couple minor blips . IE : wiper motor and fuel filter .

1995 Cherokee Country . Gone , but , not forgotten .

Goes around , comes around .
