My wipers quit working and when I would turn them on and off real fast they would move about a 1/4 inch. Finally they stopped working completely but the rear wiper and fluid for front and rear works fine. I tried replacing the motor for the front wipers but nothing. Now when I turn the ignition to the on position just before starting the wipers will jump a 1/4 inch again. But will not move when the wiper switch is in the on position. Is it a wiring problem or a switch I need to replace?

Sounds like the relay or switch is bad. Just find the correct fuse for the wipers(will be marked on inside panel cover) and remove it. There is just the switch, the fuse and wiper relay in that system. So it turns on but not off, but works. So there is power from the switch and the fuse is good or it will not work and the relay lets it turn on but not off. Try putting it on a delay mode, if it does not work more than likey it is the relay. I know it is a hit or miss issue but that is cheaper attempt than replacing the switch assembly.
the pump wire is probably not making good connection with the pump that is why the washer fluid wont work try and clean the connection. the pump is located under the fill tank
check for a bad relay for the wipers not working. the relay will be under the hood or under the dash next to the fuses. the cover will tell you what piece is the relay. the relay controls the delay in the wipers so that is probably bad and you can get them at napa for cheap. and simple to install its just like a fuse.
