windshield wipers

I have a 1989 jeep cherokee and the windshield wipers wont turn off unless you unplug the circuit breaker. What could be causing the problem? And could i bypass it with a toggle switch or something?

Bad switch or bad motor. There is a board in the motor that controls parking the wipers. If it goes bad it can cause what you are experiencing.
You need to locat a diagram and make sure the switch is working properly. You dont want to buy a motor and find out it is something else

Yes you can. Wire the switch in where the circuit breaker goes, just 2 leads to the switch with 1/4" male spade connectors on the ends will plug in the fuse block where the breaker goes. Include the breaker in one of the wires.
Later, mikey
