How should the intermittent wipers function on a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited when at a complete stop? They're speed sensitive & don't do a full cycle, just weird 1/3 movements, stopping wherever.

Asked by Dec 08, 2013 at 11:50 AM about the 2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited

Question type: General

I just bought the vehicle and was wondering why the wipers were acting the way they are, and if it isn't designed into the normal function then I'll go have it fixed. They do operate normally when engaged in low or high settings.

Wipers should always do a complete cycle for safety reasons. Sounds like the wiper motor is bad. Definitely have it looked at. Don't want you losing vision in the middle of a storm! HTH. -Jim

It was the wiper motor that was malfunctioning, and the dealer is replacing it as a 'we owe' issue thankfully. Had it been the PCM that would've been an expensive repair that they wouldn't have wanted to do on their dime.
