Question about Cars & Trucks
Yes sir! In the future, be SURE the wiper blades are free to move before you turn them on.
Try to find a warm place to work. Remove the wirper arms from the car, you should need nothing more that a screwdriver to gently pry the arm loose from the shaft.
Now, you will need to remove the sheet metal louvred paned that has the two holes for the wiper shafts.
You might be able to do this without removing the hood of the car, maybe not.
That panel is held on with some screws and some plastic buttons, which love to break.
Under that panel is the wiper linkage and the motor.
If you will turn the wipers on now, you will see the motor is no longer hooked to the wiper linkage.
The assembly will come off the car as a unit when you remove 4 screws and disconnect the wiring harness joint.
I'd look for the replacement parts in a junk yard or on e-bay, since car parts stores do not sell replacement parts for this problem.
If you want, you could call a Honda dealer for parts, I don't think they have them, but maybe.

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.

Sounds like the wiper arm has become disconnected. There may be a clip or bushing that has broken or fallen off. The wiper motor/arms etc are accessible by taking the cover off (usually plastic and possibly held in by screws or large plastic slots) that's at the base of the windshield. You may have to lift the hood for access and removal. Just take your time and don't force anything.
It's really simple after that. You turn your motor on and look for moving parts, that'll be the wiper motor. Either it's disconnected at the motor or it be disconnected on the arm. Usually one arm will move both wipers. If you're lucky, maybe it's just fallen off and you can find the clip or bushing and re-attach it. Otherwise, you may have to get a new part, which in this case would probably come from the dealer.
You may possibly also get it from a junkyard, but chances are if it's a small part, then they may not sell it to you. However some junk yards WILL sell you these small parts, and others may even let you pull the part yourself. If you could do this, you could also see how the part properly attaches.
If it's confusing how to re-attach the parts, then you may have to buy a Haynes or Chilton manual to see exactly how everything looks. Diagrams would be great. If there's no good pix in the manual, then try online. The best would be to see fully functional operating wipers on a similar car. Maybe find a buddy to take a peek at his after you practice on yours.
The part if broken should fit multiple years of your make of car.
Get this fixed soon because not only will it not pass inspection, but it is highly unsafe.

Here is a diagram of the fuse box in the interior. This is where the wiper relay is located, #6. Although if you hear sounds from the motor something might be restricting your blades and or the motor is shot and needs to be replaced.
