Wiper Woes- they're back in time just for winter
So, My wipers stopped working AGAIN. And this time it's for good.
So far, i've replaced the wiper switch on the column, the fuse in the behind the glovebox fuse panel, the wiper motor, and linkage under the cowl. Still dead.
I pulled apart the dash, and started jiggling wires and checked connections. all connections were tight and nothing happened when i jiggled the wires meaning i don't have a loose connection. Something is either dead or completely disconnected.
does anyone have any sort of insight into the behind the dash wires of a '98 TJ? The wiper wires come off a wiring harness and then gets shrink wrapped (like most factory bundles). I'd really like to figure this out before we start getting big winter storms here in NY and i'd really like to avoid bringing it to a shop.
