Re: 2005 taurus front wipers won't work
A broken wiper motor transmission is very common. It has plastic pieces that will break and is located under the black plastic cowel at the bottom of the windshield. You will need to order it from the Ford dealer.

Your wiper and wiper fluid motors are different operation. The fluid one is a pump and the wiper motor only operates the wipers. Should check and see if you are getting power to the wiper motor if you are and the wiper does not work then you may need a new wiper motor.
The rear wiper has a dedicated fuse. It's the 10A R/WIPER fuse in the relay block. This supplies power to the rear wiper and washer switch and the rear wiper control unit. That unit also gets power from the 20A AUDIO (!) fuse in the engine room fuse box. If the fuses are OK, the ignition switch is in the ON position, and the rear wiper and washer switch is turned on the rear wiper should work. If not check all the components described to find where the loss of power is occurring
this is no easy trouble shoot! GM put a few thing on there that could cause a problem . First there is a pulse bourd on the wiper motor that could go bad . second it could be that that part of the switch has went bad , check the fuses . Hope this can be of some help to you !!
This may be multi-function switch failure. The multi-function is the turn signal/wiper/headlight switch. It may need to be replaced. Is this the type of switch you have. Hope this helps. If it is not the switch then the pump may be bad or have a bad wire connection.
