This sounds like the wiper motor has failed. It is a common problem that usually starts with the wipers moving slower than normal, then eventually quits all together.

SOURCE: my rear defrost and wiper
I have the solution. [will use untechnical verbage in this reply] Bad ground is the culprit. Both devices (defrost and wiper motor) appear to share a common ground which has become disfunctional. So, I took a piece of vinyl covered wire stripped each end and secured one end under the hex head screw (like a bolt) that secures the wiper motor to the metal bracket it is attached to. Then sucured the other end under the hex head screw that holds the door window latch mechanism to the liftgate. The wire is about 6 inches long. Bingo! Both work and have been working and tested every day for 6 days.
The smashed wire idea is along these lines. But realize in the troubleshooting of this - these devices have two different switches so power unlikely the problem because two circuits failing together is unlikely. So what can fail at same time? - the ground side of the circuit. Often time devices share a common ground bus or grounding circuit.
Anyway. This fixed it! Thanks to those who read my questioned and took the time to read it. I may add a picture of the wire solution this weekend.
