An electric motor needs 2 primary things for it to run. First, it needs power, second, it needs a ground to complete the electrical circuit. Normally this is controlled by the switch...

In this case the wiring diagram needs to be compared to the physical condition of the wiring. If the on/off switch opens/closes the ground, then there is an alternate ground in the circuit probably due to a broken wire. If the on/off switch opens/closes the power, then there usually would be a short in the on/off switch, and the power is spanning the switch.

.. Goog luck..

A bad relay switch will cause the windshield wipers to not turn off. Replace the relay switch and the windshield wipers should turn off.

Windshield wipers not turning off is not a common problem in the 1997 Jeep Wrangler. Remove the windshield wiper fuse to turn them off.

The windshield wiper switch is broken which is located on the windshield wiper motor. You need to replace the whole motor to fix this.

If the windshield wipers do not turn off in the vehicle, there could be a short between the battery and the wiper motor. It is also possible that the motor is malfunctioning due to the motor not being properly grounded.

If the windshield wipers work when pushing the lever down but not when they are turned on all the time, the problem could be in the wiper motor relay switch. There are two different relay switches for the windshield wipers, so that if the one fails a person can still clear the windshield manually.

Use the same switch for the front wipers. Once the front wipers are switched on, the rear wiper will come on as well. However, a reverse twist of the switch would turn on just the rear wiper.

They come on when you turn on the windshield washer, but only when the headlights are turned on.

a bad fuse, control module (that little thing you use to turn on your wipers), or the windshield wiper motor is bad.

Unfortunately you need to replace the wiper control inside. Look it over closely, if your not comfortable doing it then take it to someone you trust for repairs.

The linkage for the wipers could have slipped. If the linkage is not aligned right, then the wipers will not stop at the right spot.

Your headlight wipers should come on when you spray your windshield washer fluid.
