what car, what year? gee? a suz, what?
it can only be 4 things. (all cars)
1: the wiper motor is bad. (it has contacts inside for timing.
2: the wiper shaft is stripped, nah you said both stalled.
3: the wiring is bad.
4: the combo switch for the above is bad.
DIY, with what , no tools? no meter.?
with no tools one can only GUESS,
roll dice, and replace a part.
after spending $500 on parts and the wires are good then what.
yes, buy a meter.
it could be a bad ground wire.
when you turn on most wipers, the combo switch sends
that signal( just 12v ) to the motor.
the motor is self booting, that is , it only needs the start up
and then it self provides its own power,
ive restored wiper motors, many.
then the motor runs until it his the dead spot in ITS, internal
sustain switch and the halts. if the combo switch is off.
but if the wiper fails to return, this is a bad wiper motor.
(overloaded by ice, sure)
the motor can fail 2 ways, but
id say the sustain switch is at EOL. end of life.
this is the most common design.
check your FSM for yours. the factor service manual.
or alldata dot com. sure.
