Fixing up a '95, wiper and other issues

New to this forum, and new to a used Grand Cherokee Orvis (95) with the 5.2 L. that I bought for my daughter's first car.
Prevoius owner sold it to me cheap due to the "Death Wobble". He already did tie rod ends, all control arms (with bushings), steering box & pittman arm,shocks. I added a new traction bar with urethane bushings, and a steering stablizer. Need to drive it to see if that helped. (open to input on things I overlooked here).
Right now the wipers are driving me batty. Prevoius added a new switch on the column. I put in a new motor-nothing. No wipers at all. Short on free time, would like to get input as to other's experience with this issue. (yes-fuse is new and good,checked with meter). I am guessing that the only other thing could be the relays....(?)

Re: Fixing up a '95, wiper and other issues

I donīt know the ZJ, but are there no similar relayīs to the wiper motor relay in the power distribution center, so that you can swap them out to know if it is the relay or not? It can be wiring ofcourse, but then you will need to start measuring with a multimeter to find out where the problem is.

Re: Fixing up a '95, wiper and other issues

I am puzzling over it, will tackle it tomorrow.I am not sure if it is the intermittent module- have nothing, no window wash, no anything. Have power at the fuse-test and installed new fuse...no power at the motor,etc.

Tested module by bypassing it on low setting-nothing. Hoping for some ideas here.

Re: Fixing up a '95, wiper and other issues

Which module did you test?
I donīt have wiring diagram of the ZJ, but if it is made up in the same way as with the WJ, then there is a fuse and a circuit breaker in the wiper/washer system, both placed on the junction block under the drivers dash. Donīt know if this circuit breaker can be reset.
Did you remove the ON/OFF relay and measure for power? Did you try an other similar relay in its place?
