Check the wiper arm motor under the hood. Sometimes its the fuse, Check the circuit breaker for continuity across the terminals If an open circuit is indicated replace the circuit breaker. Also check between the circuit motor and the ground, and check the battery voltage with ignition on (don't start) if it test for voltage good and the motor still don't work its a faulty wiper motor. A used wiper motor will work as well as a new $$$$$$ one.Denton auto salvage 785-437-2223 test all their parts for working condition before shipping and have a 30 day return on them
check for power both sides of fues and then at switch,most switches in steering colum have relays some switches make contact with earth so no power goes to then they just make the earth circet for the relay ie relay has power all the time when it is earthed the switch in the relay turn on and power to the wiper motor,but first check for power and earth at the wiper motor if you haven't already,that should have been before replacing motor
Most likely, you can check the multi-function switch on the steering column, They generally will go out after several years of use. To replace this, you must first remove all steering column covers. Refer to A Haynes Manual if you are unsure of how to proceed with this. After that, you must remove the multi-function switch from the column, it should be secured by one or two bolts, or on some models simply a retaining clip(plastic) that mounts it to the steering column. Replace with an direct OEM replacement, or its equivalent(available at Autozone) and this should take care of the problem. After replacing the relays, fuses, and the motor, the only thing that it can be is the multi-function switch(other than faulty wiring, in which you will need an Ohm meter to detect). Any other questions feel free to ask.
Yes its possible that the fuse is blown, check the fuse box and locate the wiper fuse and see if its blown if its blown replace the fuse with the SAME amperage rating, if its not locate the wiper motor under the hood on the firewall and unplug the connector use a test light and turn your wipers on from the wiper switch on your steering column if the test light lights you have power there and the wiper motor is probably bad if theres no power there but the fuse is good you have a broken wire and you need to check all related wiring from the wiper motor to the switch......
It is possibly your wiper switch.The one one the steering column.You can use a test light to check and see if your getting power to the wiper motor when depressing the wiper switch.If you are not getting power when you depress the switch it is either the wiring or the switch.Hope this helps.Good luck.
