Hopefully there isn't any damage. There is a small black plastic cover at the base of the wiper arm that is conceling a nut. Pull the cover up and try tightening the nut, maybe it just came loose.

May want to look at replacing the wiper circuit board.It is located on the firewall adjacent to the wiper motor and has a some what square black cover with 3 torx screws and wireing harness pluged into the side.We had a truck that every time you washed it the wipers would stay on until it dryed out.You can try removing it and spaying it down with contact cleaner just watch the brease on the two contact tips.Well hope this helps.

1990 Sentra left wiper inop

Hi. I had this happen to me on my 2000 F-150. You stripped out the gears in the wiper arm where it mounts on the motor. Replace the wiper arm on that side. They are inexpensive and very easy to change. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can be of anymore assistance. spellcheck.gif

I have a 1990 Sentra. I turned on my wipers when the windshield was frozen. Unfortunately, now only the right one works. What could I look for to see if I can fix it.

you probably bent or broke the wiper linkage check under the hood and see if you can get to the wiper linkage from there to see if it just popped off. If not you will have to take the cowling off the bottom of the windshield and check it out.
A replacement linkage is not that expensive and if your halfway decent with tools you could replace it just remember if you remove the wipers do not leave the arms up incase they drop down and crack the windshield.
