Re: IMitsubishi Galant windshield wipers or power mirrors...
Normally, there are two fuse boxes in a car. One inside the engine battery near the battery for the major parts of the car while another inside. The interior fusebox could be under the dash, driver/passenger kick panel or even behind the center console.
even if there were no names, you could perform a visual inspection or a continuity test on the fuses. also often, there is a diagram on the fusebox cover stating what and where the fuses are for.

Well first I would check the fuse box for burned out fuses. Then I would get a simple dc power tester and see if the windshield wiper motor is getting power. If you don't have a bad fuse and the motor is still getting power I would say the motor has burned out.
Remove wiper arms,open hood and remove plastic cowl(cover) at windshield,it is held in with plastic clips,the wiper motor is under the cover held in with 4 bolts(10mm).reinstall everything and turn on motor without wiper arms ,then turn it off so it finds its off position-reinstall wiper arms
have you had any recent work done near the wipers? .if no the linkage from the wipers to the motor has come out of adjustment, there is a removeable cover above hood, and below winshield to see and repair as needed.. good luck marty
Ok, If wipers were frozen to windshield at one point, it is possible to either blow fuse or burn out motor. The motors used on Jeeps are pathetic... sometimes unable to run on a dry windshield unless water is sprayed on it! Same goes for wiper transmission... If you moved it by hand, you can bend or otherwise damage it, but that is less frequent! Check fuse, relay and motor for power (in that order) and you will likely find the problem.if you haven't already!!!
check fuse and connection at motor for power, if power to motor then most probably windshield motor assembly, second thought the actual switch, but not likely. You can get a used motor at any salvage yard for very little and install it yourself. It isn't very hard to do.
