Remove wiper arms at the shaft, right at the cowl. each will have a nut on them but it is covered by a piece of plastic that will snap up for access. take nuts off and remove wiper assembly. turn key on turn wipers on make sure shafts turn when on, then turn off the shafts to stop in park position. then reinstall wiper assemblies in their park position .

sounds like the connecting rod between both wiper arms either broke or one of the keepers popped off under the connector for that arm..since the wiper system IS NOT designed to wisk snow off the window once accumulated, this can an does happen.. even seen motors get burned out doing this..cleaning the window first will save this issue and the equiptment. need to acess this arm<take off the vented peice below the windshield and everything should be visible there..repost findings

How to remove the wiper arm from the shaft so I can remove the cslotted cowl to replace the wiper bushings.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)

To remove the arm from the pivot, lift the arm to permit the latch to be pulled out to the holding position and remove the arm from the pivot with a rocking motion.

Fig. 1: Mount the wiper blade/arm as shown-Dakota models

zjlimited_141.jpg

Fig. 2: Mount the wiper blade/arm as shown-1994-96 Pick-ups



When installing the arms, the at-rest position of the blades should be determined before pushing the arm onto the pivot. For Dakota trucks, the tip of the driver's side blade should be 0.51-2.63 in. (13-67mm) above the cowl panel and the passenger's side blade should be 0.94-3.06 in. (24-78mm) above the cowl panel. For 1989-93 Pick-ups and Ramchargers, the driver's side blade should be 1.84 in. (47mm) above the windshield weatherstripping at the heel of the blade; the passenger's side blade should be 2.24 in. (57mm) above the weatherstripping. For 1994-96 Pick-ups, the wiper motor must be in the PARK position and the wiper blade should be about 0.85 in. (22mm) from the upper edge of the black-out areas at the base of the windshield.


Hope this helps to solve it.

Front wipers stopped working but you can hear the motor run also


If the wipers were buried under snow/ice or frozen to the windshield, you may have blown the red 10 amp fuse located in cavity 9 in the fuse block located on the bottom left side of the instrument panel near the parking brake pedal.
In order of easiest to check:
1) ensure wipers not frozen to windshield.
2) ensure wiper arms are not loose on the pivot stud,
3) check the red 10 amp fuse.
You stated that "you can hear the motor". Which motor do you hear? The engine or the wiper motor?
If you hear the wiper motor, then the fuse is alright. Try 1) and 2) above.
