My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your issue. Chrysler's of your model year seem to have an odd issue where the accessories will work if the key is in Run, but the engine is off, try that first to get your window up, then we can look at diagnosis.
The two causes of this issue are the Integrated Power module (IPM) under the hood, of the ignition switch in your steering column. Sometimes the IPM will get battery acid, water, or other contaminants on it, and it will shut down the accessory relay (which powers your windows, radio, wipers, fan, ect). So lets start with a visual inspection of the IPM. pop the hood and check the IPM for damage or obvious signs of getting liquid inside it. The IPM is part of your under hood Fuse/Relay box. If you have a voltmeter, you can test circuits T751 and T752 at the Intelligent Power Module, there should be battery voltage when craning and 0 voltage when the engine is running at these circuits. See Pic for IPM location:
To test the ignition switch you will need a scan-tool to verify the ignition switch position sensor lines up with the actual position of the key. Try the IPM first and let me know how it goes. If we need to test the ignition switch, I can walk you through that as well.
The key in run didn't work. It looks like the I P M is the fuse panel and it looks fine . It's clean in side. I'm not sure if I said the front wiper relay clicks when the key is on.
Yes, wiper switch off , key on and will keep clicking awhile after the key turned off. Also with the key on if window switch is moved there's a click in the doors.
I've been saying it wrong. It's the front wiper high- low relay that clicks. I have swapped and the acc relay out to no avail.
