First are you sure that the motor is bad? Did you check the fuse, 4.8 amp circuit breaker(this goes out alot causing the wipers not to work.It is in position 15 on you fuse box), switch. If all of those are good then it is Time to change the wiper motor. You will need a Phillips head screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver, a rachet and I believe a 7/16 socket. First thing you need to do is remove the wiper arms, to do this simply lift the blade away from the window. On the bottom of the wiper arm where it connects you should see a little slide with the arm pulled back use the flat head screwdriver and slide the slide over to hold up the arm. now go ahead and remove the wiper arm. Once you have removed the wiper arms not it is time to remove the trim (the trim is the vent looking piece under the wiper arms)over the wiper motor. To do this you will need you Phillips head and remove I believe 6 or head screws that are in the trim, be careful when you remove the trim as you washer hoses are attached to this. Now take you rachet and remove the 2 or 3 bolts holding the motor in, unplug the wires and remove it from the wiper track. To install just do everything in reverse

It also possible for your wiper switch or the wiper governor (module) to go bad. I would suggest you test the new motor by removing the plug and pluggin it into the new motor before taking anything apart. It might not be a bad motor.

If the wiper motor is good and the motor shaft turns when the wiper is on then you need to check the linkage for the wiper arm. the rear wiper motors and switches are notorious for going bad in the jgc you may have lost your switch.

I changed the wiper motor in my 95 JGC. remove the vent near the windshield on the exterior of the jeep... you will have to open the hood. remove weather stripping and about 5 screws to remove the plastic vent, and the wipers. the wiper motor is located on the drivers side near the windshield below the vent. a couple bolts to take out, pull the wiper motor out of the rotating arms, unplug, and replace.

Unbolt the roll bar from the windshield. Lower the windshield. At this point you can unbolt the motor and replace it.

The windshield wiper motor may have a short in it. The windshield wiper motor may not be grounded properly. Make sure the ground wire is tight and free of corrosion.

The wiper motor is located under the black plastic cowl below the windshield.

The 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee takes 20" replacement windshield wiper blades on both sides front and a 10" or 11" wiper on the rear.

The windshield needs to be folded into the down position to access the wiper motor. There are a couple cut-outs in the metal of the cowl that allows access to the wiper motor & linkage. There are release bolts on either side of the windshield & of course the top needs to be off.

The windshield wiper motor is under the front cowl. After removing the cowl the motor should be easily accessed for replacement.

The wiper arm is attached to the pivot which is part of the wiper transmission, which in turn is attached to the wiper motor.

You will have to remove the wiper arms, then remove the cowl, and then the wiper motor.
