Tech Tip intermittent wiper module cheap!

Post by babywag » Sat Apr 20, 2013 2:25 pm

This should be for anything '86-'91.
XJ/YJ probably other models use the same part.
56006957 is the one you want.

The wipers on my '90 were problematic when I got it.
Delay funky worked randomly and @ whatever interval delay it felt like that day.
Wipers wouldn't park properly when turned off.

I removed over a year or more ago because I got sick of the wipers not working properly.

Today I decided to replace it. Got a module from a '96 XJ @ local yard.
Worked like a charm.
Cost was $10.91

So don't go buying an outrageously overpriced priced module online.
I think some vendor was charging ~$100 or close @ one time.

Yep

You can even swap out for an entire XJ steering column. All the wiring is the same.

Then, with a little welding, you can end up with the 'good' ujoint style steering shaft rather than the stock rag joint.

Blake is that any XJ column or specific years?

2003 Dodge Crewcab 2500 Cummins longbed 4x4
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee V-6 full time 4x4


Alternators, winches, 4x4, guns all have the same issue if you don't have any knowledge of them usually bad things will happen. Serehill
