Driving home in the rain today, turned wipers on low and nothing, turned on high and they worked fine. Wipers won't park though now, how do I tell if it's the switch or the motor? Not really handy when it come to electrical problems

Up until yesterday the wipers worked fine, can't imagine the switch and motor both went bad at the same time

See which one is least expensive....... go for that one....you already stated you are not handy with electrical problems..... nothing I say is gonna make sense to you anyway..... unless you already know how to use a multimeter.

Minded the exact same thing about six months ago. They would mysteriously work then stop there and work again. I i replaced the motor first. It worked perfectly. I did not have to replace the switch. In my opinion I think your motor is going bad. It's not that expensive and it's not that hard to do.

Hows the clutch btw- i got mine all together and running but my clutch is a little loose and a bit hard to get into gear- im going to try and bleed the slae and master a little more today
Clutch is working perfectly, I had a heck of time getting my slave and master bled right when we did it. But it's all good now.

I picked up a motor from advance this morning, gonna replace it this afternoon, and hopefully that will fix it. Eventually want to replace the high-low switch with a intermittent one as soon as I find one. From what I understand its a direct bolt in

Yep, and you don't have to get one from a Jeep. One from a Dodge Neon will work. It's on my list of things to pick up next time I go by a salvage.
