Update: 1999 Rodeo - rear wiper Issues. I found a lot of info but "Dale" set me on the path ...

Hear is my responce...
... first of all, Thank /You, Dale Unknown source). You put me on the path…

OK, I did a lot of research and learned from 6 – 8 other tech / mechanics / home repair guys like me.

I want to share my experiences:

It never occurred to me the side swinging lower tail gate and the “Glass” hatch lid needed to be closed to operate!!! There must be a interlock switch somewhere… I got a clue from another user.

So, after doing the suggestion from others… I follower the closing sequence… when inside started the vehicle hit the rear wiper switch.. ( no blade on my mechanism so I observed it from the rear of the /suv. Indeed the wiper motor shaft turned on revolution, went to a 15 seconds delay and made another cycle. I counted seconds so I might be off a few seconds. The delay seems to be none adjustable. I got the 1999 Rodeo use with a lot of issues so I not sure if that is correct procedure but it is repeatable. I powered down and then tried it again… same results!!

I so very pleased… … … I had to share with the rest of you!!

I hope I’ve helped some one.
