Question about 2001 Nissan Altima

My son has a 2001 Nissan Altima. The wipers will

My son has a 2001 Nissan Altima. The wipers will not turn off at all. In his immature nature he grabs the blades until they stopped. My guess is a fuse is why they stopped when he forced them to. Now they do not work at all. Any idea what the first problem of not turning off could be?

First thing i would do is unhook electrical plug to wiper motor and use a test light and see if it lights when you turn on switch and light goes out when you turn switch off. That way you know if its the switch or not. The wiper motor most likely is the culpret it has a printed circete in it thats went bad hense why it keeps running.

How do I change wiper blades on 2001 nissan altima? The package directions are indecipherable.

I couldn't find instructions specific to your make and model and year for installing windshield wiper blades online or on my online resource.

Try getting Autozone and Advance Auto or Walmart to install for 'free' if you purchase them there, if you can't install them yourself.

What about the package directions are indecipherable?

It might be either switch itself or wiper relay.
Ufortunatly I don't know location of the relay.
You can actually find relay by noise , put the switch on intermittent position and see where the cliking coming from.
