Hey Guys - I live in New England and am on my second Jeep ['87 Cherokee, now a '95 Grand Cherokee Limited]. Both had rear wipers that froze up - stopped moving. I would climb out and manually swipe it until it starting going on its own, but within a week or two it would freeze up again. Lubricating and WD-40 didn't help. Anybody else have this problem? Is there a remedy? Do I need to buy a new wiper motor? I'd really like it to work. Thanks.

Two things stick out that could be wrong. One, the motor is old and needs to be replaced (this happened on my 90 XJ), or two, the wiring harnass is frayed or broken from the lift gate going up and down (happened on my 98 XJ) On option two the third brake light was also showing signs of the wiring issue.

Sounds as if the motor is bad. Good luck.
