Windshield wipers on 1986 Ford Ranger stopped working

unplug the wire at the wiper motor and then turn the key on and then turn the wiper switch on and test the wires at the plug with a 12 volt tester . if u dont have any thing then ur wiper switch is bad , if u have juice at the plug then it sounds like its the motor.
