Hey everyone, I’m having an issue with the wiper on my new to me 1993 XJ6. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to figure it out. The wiper does not work… PERIOD. And it never has in my 2 months of ownership (haven’t gotten to drive it yet ). I found a thread on here where someone was having the same issue, but never posted if he got the matter resolved, plus one of his tests had different results than mine… So here is what I do know.
I’m assuming the wiper switch does work as the washer sprayer works.
I have a constant 12v on the Light Green/Purple wire with the ignition on.
If I jump across the brown wire and either the red or blue the wiper works.
I’ve tried two different wiper relays with the same result.
Am I testing the system right? Can someone please give me guidance? I know that because it’s a 93 the wiper motor is different from prior years and that it doesn’t have the inline fuse under the right hand dash. I’m also going to have to get creative for repairing the harness, as when I unplugged the wiper relay, the brown wire pulled out of its terminal.
Any help is massively appreciated as this is the only thing keeping me from getting the car on the road. Cheers, Michael.
