Wipers work with ignition OFF ?!

First post here and first Jeep is 6 days old. 2000 TJ SE.

I noticed today that with the ignition turned off and the keys out of the ignition completely the wipers still work. I know lights are supposed to do this but wipers? Is it a 'Jeep thing' or do I have an electrical issue?

Thanks! Love this forum!

This is not the case in my 99 TJ Sport. My wipers work in every position EXCEPT 'off'.
Your ignition switch may be failing, but if it's only the wipers, and not the radio or cig. lighter, then I'd think the PO had modded the wipers to run without the key for some reason.

Oh, and welcome to the Forum!
