Its brand new..I replaced it to start....I just didnt think to turn on the key to test it, and jumped right into chasing wires....I'll put it back together tomorrow. And turn the key, and it will probably be fine....just mad I didn't turn the key before tearing apart the dash..

okay , I was just gonna say you can test it while you have the dash panel off. Might be a good idea

With your ignition switch hooked up and your turn signal switch installed just put the key in the position and work the switch just like you're using it driving

Should I make the VROOM VROOM sound as I'm doing it?? Hahah just messing around... thought maybe you had a way to test it without hooking everything back up. Like with a continuity tester or something.

Thanks for the help.

Just don't leave your ignition on for a long time when testing it.

It could burn out the ICM or ignition coil.

It should work in Accessory mode I think.

I'm on to the next issue. The wiper motor was not installed when I got the jeep, so I'm not really sure what state the components were in when I got them, but I have reinstalled them and the wipers arent working. Can anyone help me understand the wiper circuit. It had a funny fuse / circuit breaker in the wiper outlet o the fuse box. I am led to believe that this plastic relay looking thing goes to it too. Any info on what these parts are and what they do would be helpful. Thanks

Yep, that's the circuit breaker for the wipers.

But there is no "Relay" for the wipers. There is a controller for the delay wipers.

What you are looking ar appears to be a horn relay or possibly fog light relay



How many wires run to it?
Are they black and grey or more?

It's possible.

Try turning your switch.
If you just have 3 positions. Off, low, High then you don't
But if there is a area where the switch rotates without encountering any stops then you probably have the delay wiper switch with the module missing.

I can't remember but I think if you can turn the switch CCW from off and rotate it, then you have delay wipers. But it's been a couple of years since I ran mine.

It's only 3 positions. So the only items in the circuit are the switch, the motor, and the circuit breaker...correct??
