windshield wipers

I was wondreing if anyone had a problem with their windshield wipers working,and then stopped working. My wipers will work sometimes and not at other times. Would the problem be in the switch and if so do i need to pull the steering column to fix it. 98 wrangler sport,4.0l. Any response would be helpful.

There is a very good “DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING” section for the wipers in the FSM. If you don’t have one there is an online read only version here:

Jeep Knowledge Base

Intermittent problems are more likely switch related. Removal is also covered in the manual.
