Thumbs down Rear Wiper Problem


1996 Grand Cherokee Larade 4.0

I switched out the motor, the switch, verified all fuses, and metered 12V at the rear wiper motor connector.

I still cannot get a rear wiper motor to work, the washer works fine and EVERYTHING else electrical in the vehicle functions great.

I chased down all fuses adn breakers, and again there4 is power to the connector in the rear.

if i have 12V at the connector, the motor shoudl work, correct? i find it hard to believe i have two faulty new motors in a row here.

any ideas ho to test a motor off the battery to see if i can verify the motor is functional and then narrow it to the wiring or the motor?

thanks guys.

Did you use a new motor or a used motor when you swapped it out?
Steering stabilizers will not cure or cause death wobble, they only mask the real problem that is causing death wobble. Oil pumps do not make pressure, they create flow. Bearing clearence and restrictions make pressure. It's the crank sensor.
