My bet is a leak shorting out your fuse panel since it is affecting so many systems that are unrelated except at the fuse panel. Check all fuses for burnt/blown fuses. Check for water intrusion near the fuse panel after a rain event. If this does not steer you in the right direction, you will have to get a technician to do an electrical diagnostic to find the short.
Their is a relay under the dash board that controls the wipers some times this burns out un plug this you will need 2 remove the fuse panel to do this with the ignition switch the wipers on then identify which unit it u will see small coulerd box's about 25 mm square when u fined the right one replace this with egzaxtly the same type this should sort it 4 u
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.
Both the front and rear wipers have a couple things in common. They are both powered by the 'Wiper System Relay". This relay supplies the power to both the front and rear wiper fuses. I would check for power at both of the fuses. If there is no power, then there is a problem with the relay or the relay circuits. The relay and both of these fuses are located in the underhood fuse/relay box. Please note that there is a "Wiper System Relay" as well as "Front Wiper Relay" and "Rear Wiper Relay" Why??? I don't know...some engineer at Saturn worked out his job-security with this one, I guess...
Any way, the Wiper System Relay feeds both of the fuses which, in turn, feed the two other relays.
The primary side of this relay is controlled by the Ignition 2 circuit from the ignition switch, so the relay is energized any time the ignition switch is on. (sounds like a good way to overheat and burn up a relay to me...but who am I??? I am not an engineer, I just get paid to deal with their stupidity)
The secondary side of this relay gets its power directly from the battery...no fuses in between, just a fusiblelink. This link is not the problem because there would be a whole bunch of other stuff not working - including your engine computer.
If I were to take a guess, it would be the relay.
Let me know if this helps you. Take a moment to rate my solution this will let me, as well as other know.
one cause of wiper failure is a blown fuse, check for blown fuse in the fuse boxes (inside and in the hood) other causes are a deffective wiper motor and the wiper switch. this type of the year is mostly associated with snow or rain, pending on where you are on the globe, so be sure you have a functional wiper unit
