Hummmm, so you replaced the wiper motor with a new one, and also the "multi function" switch….the black or chrome lever that operates the wipers and the turn signals…correct? That lever/switch is the most common failure for this problem that I have seen.
If you have replaced both of those, have your mechanic check to see if you have an "intermittent wiper governor". This part is about half the size of a cigarette box and just plugs into the wire harness for the wipers. Look under the left knee area of the driver side dashboard and follow the wire harness from the steering column going to the wiper motor. There should be this box plugged into the wire harness within that section of wires.
Some models had this governor, some do not….so you will have to check to see if yours is equipped with it or not. Your mechanic should be able to tell you this. We have replaced a few of these governors over the years, usually for the intermittent part of the wiper not working…but it COULD be the problem in this case

Check the fuse first if not that, than replace the windshield whiper motor under plastic panel between the hinges of the hood.

Okay here's my problem I have no manual and I have

If you cant find pic online (neither could I) try pulling each fuse out individually and looking at it... check this pic if you don't know how to visually inspect a fuse. Replace blown fuses with ones of the same amp value.. i.e. 15 w/ a 15, and 20 w/ a 20. You may lose the time in your dash or reset radio station presets by doing it this way, but its better than not having wipers or brake lights

Replaced fuse,windshield wiper motor, link assembly,and still wont work in 98 lincoln navigator

The only thing left is the wiper switch. Check for power at the wiper motor when in low position (should be a green or white with green tracer wire). Also check the connection at the base of the steering column for the wiper switch.

If the hight mount brake light is working , then your switches , fuses , relays , are OK . Most likely problem is that the bulbs themselves are burnt out , or there is a broken or loose wire.
