You should check your fuses first. What may of happened is that the wiper motor could be frozen if the wiper arms are frozen in ice. Another thing that may of happened is that the wipers were used to clear the windshield instead of clearing it manually. When that is done if there is too much snow or it is a heavy snow the wiper motor will burn up or go bad due to the fact that it does not have enough power to do such things.

Check to make sure your fuse is set all the way down first. Could be a bad ground too. Check the wiring at the wiper motor and maybe clean the ground and terminals with either alcohol or electric cleaner and make sure the are dry before you plug it back in. It sounds like a power to the wiper motor issue. If that doesn't fix it your wiper motor may have an internal short.

Started jeep with snow on windshield, didn,t realize switch was on. wipers quit working. can,t find relay or fuse. can you help me?


The main fuse panel is located in the vehicle, on the left side, under the steering column between the brake pedal and the left side kick panel. The Power Distribution Center (PDC) box is located in the engine compartment by the coolant overflow bottle.

1997 Jeep Cherokee -- Do the front windshield wipers/washer fluid have a fuse? It isn't listed in my owners guide in either of the fuse box locations. They stopped working.


wipers and washers usually have a fuse,
i may be mixed with another fuse.
the best thing to do is check each fuse in turn and see if one is blown or has
corroded connections.


I hope this was helpful.

My windshield wipers suddenly stopped working on my '96 Jeep Cherokee. I replaced a fuse that was bad, but they still don't work. Help!


if the fuse failed then that means one of few things...

1.) motor has failed causing excessive current draw
2.) circuit has direct short to ground
3.) short to ground that caused fuse failure is now an open

you need to check for power and ground at the wiper motor

keep us posted

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee wipers not working


the relay is dirt cheap at the store (8-12 dollars), the relay is easy to find. on top of the engine area back near the firewall is a small to medium sized black box with a snap up lid...there are relays just sitting inside of it, you want the one with 3 prongs going across the bottom and 2 prongs going front to back on the bottom. it's a big square piece that just pulls out. the wiper fuse is kinda a pain to get to busy easy to replace... it's a really big silver metal cased fuse on your fusebox closest to the floor... be careful because if the wiper fuse is bad, it may be hot as hell to touch so take care when grabbing it. any auto store will have one. if neither of these fixes work then you need to check the motor wheel that connects to the wiper arm rods under the vents where the washer lines run down from the arms... sometimes the pins that connect the arms to the wheel snap off which make the wipers stop. worst case is the motor itself went bad. hope this helps
