89 4.2 Islander with a haunted washer situation.
It's pouring rain out right now, and the windshield washer works like a champ! Hit that switch on the column and it jumps into action.
When I first start the thing in the morning, it'll work great UNLESS some wayward bird has deposited his/her dukey on the glass. If the glass is clean, damn washer works. If it's dirty, I can just imagine the windshield washer gnomes under the hood flipping me off.
It won't work if the engine is warmed up. It will work before that sitting in the driveway, but once I am in 3rd gear, it won't. If I come to a stop sign, it'll work IF the engine isn't warmed up all the way. If the engine is at full temp, fugettaboutit.
So, other than cruising Times Square and looking for a homeless guy with a squeegee, any suggestions?
Absolutely no other electrical problems with the jeep. Even the factory cigarette lighter still works as well as the original bulb for the under hood light.
