In light rain the wipers work dine. After driving in heavy rain for 30-45 minutes the wipers will stop and start repeatedly. If I stop driving and let the car set for 10-15 minutes the wipers will work fine for about 10-15 minutes before repeating the problem. Is the problem with the motor or relay? Where is th erelay located?

Sounds like you damaged the gear drive that operates the wiper arms, time for new wiper motor assembly is my guess. Don't use the wipers to brush off snow, very bad idea, the drive gears are plastic and on this old dog very brittle from age.
The wiper motor is defective and needs to be replaced. Inside the wiper motor is a "Park Switch". When you turn the wipers off, the park switch sends a signal to shut the wipers off. If the park switch fails to operate then the wipers will continue to run, unless the ignition key is turned off. You will also need to inspect and test the charging system. Where you had no issue before the rain, you may only need to charge the battery. After the battery is charged it should be load tested, to be sure that it is fine. Also test the alternator and make sure that it is charging correctly (@14volts). If you need more information please write back. Good luck.
Your wiper motor or wiper transmission may be bad. If you can hear the wiper motor running, but the wipers don't move, your wiper transmission is bad. If you can't hear the wiioper motor, and you're sure all fuses are good and all contacts are solid, your wiper motor is toast.
check to see if the wiper arms are binding, something is causing a feed back to the motor to strain. Blowing a 25 amp fuse is serious, and could cause many more problems, check for a good ground, clean all grounding wires in the system for that fuse, if you wrapped the wires and it quit for a brief time, one of them could be broken or burnt to the point that when they heat up and expand they simply can't complete the circuit
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Your wiper fuse may have blown causing the wipers to stop immediately. Check your fuse box for the exact location of the wiper fuse. If the fuse is good, you will need to see if your wiper motor is working. If it is not, the motor is bad. Since your car is just an 08 model, it may just be the fuse. If you have any questions, let me know. Check these solutions first. If neither don't work, let me know.
If you can hear the wiper motor now, that means it was over worked and it partially burned up the motor. There's also a good chance that the wiper linkage has been bent due to the motor trying to push the weight of the snow. I would definitely take it to a shop and have them look at it. I'm just worried about that one bad down pour of rain that would come down while your driving then all of a sudden your wiper motor gives out right in the middle of traffic. I hope this info helps.
