Rear wiper motor

Asked by Jan 07, 2014 at 09:04 PM about the 2008 Jeep Patriot Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The rear wiper turns on with the use of the steering wheel switch, but it does not delay,
like it is suppose to, it just stops until you turn the switch on and off manually. Do I need
to replace the wiper motor completely, or is there a relay I have to replace.

The gear has probably stripped on the motor. Did you happen to turn them on with it frozen to the glass and it jumped when it broke loose?

That's a good question since the wiper never worked very well unless the window was wet.
