check the fuses under the dash and under the hood
failing that go to auto zone they can show you the location and quote the parts price too
remem ber to turn on wipers and turn on ignition dont start the car look under hood listen for winding noise locate noise locate wiper motor
if making wiring noise remove and re conect wiper arms inside as they are prone to poping off if over loaded like when frozen to wind screen they pop the conector rather than burn the motor out ]

under the hood, standing toward the car and the car toward you, it should be at the back left corner in a box right on the other side of the passanger side dash board...

can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.
you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function. If yes then
fuse is ok, but issue is wiper motor.
no movement at all and no noise then its blown fuse or shorted/loose wiper
