Question about Cars & Trucks
May be a fuse, May be the wiper switch. You could pull off the wiper motor connector and check for power present, when key is on and wiper switch is on. If no power, check for a blown fuse, or the wiper switch may need looking at to see if power is getting to the switch.
If you do have power at the motor, and still no go, it is probably the ground for the wiper motor.

SOURCE: Windshield Wipers
Under the cowl (it is a plastic piece that the windshield wipers come out of) are the wiper arms that connect to the wiper motor. There are plastic parts that hold the wiper arms to the wiper motor. Lots of time these plastic parts dry out and break and the wiper arm will fall off the wiper motor. I would bet if you tried to move one of the wipers by hand both of them would move with little resistance. This would tell me that the wiper arms are disconnected from the wiper motor. The parts to fix this are easy to get. I know the motormite HELP line of parts used to have the plastic bushings to fix this problem.

The earing that connects the wiper arm to the motor is ground down. You need to replace the wiper arms or the motor depending on which "gears" are ground down. The wiper motor is here:
