Remove wire connector #231; it has 3 wires (DK BLU, BLK-WHT, BLK-RED). It is along the top, back of the fuse block--closer to the break pedal.
With the ignition key turned on, check the voltage on the BLK-RED wire. You should have power just like the DK BLU, BLK-WHT wires.
If you don't have any power on the BLK-RED wire, remove the steering column protective cover. This will give you access to the switch.
Remove the 2 connectors to the switch.
Test both the 2 Black wires on the single connector. You should have power on both.
If you have power on both and didn't have power before the power ran into the fuse box, your ignition switch is bad. The wipers and blower motor share the same power source but not the same grounds. Just make sure you ground the multimeter correctly when doing your checks. I hope this bring you some heat and put an end to foggy and iced windows.

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.
The fuse panel is under the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. Lift the handle to unlatch the panel and pull it down. The windshield wiper/washer system uses a circuit breaker in position #2 in the fuse panel. If your washer is working the circuit breaker is OK.
