If you are sure the cruise and the wipers go out at the same time it may be a problem in your control switch but it would be highly unusual to be related to both.
Here is a possible solution to your wipers though.
There are 3 torx screws that hold a plastic panel in place on your wiper motor. Remove the power connector from your wiper motor and then the 3 screws. When the cover is off you will see a circuit board. Gently pull the circuit board straight out (there are some metal clips that will release).
When the board is out look carefully on the board in the area where the plug is. You may need a magnifying glass if your eyes are like mine ;) .
If you see cracks at the solder joint hit them with a solder gun.If you dont you may need a new board.

Hello, I would say that is exactly what has happened. If you can move the wipers with no resistance it's likely one of the bolts has come loose. Both wiper arms are linked to one wiper motor.

There's most likely a module screwed directly to the wiper motor. Those things fail all the time and make the wipers do weird things.
