SOURCE: I have a1992 ford explorer the front and rear wipers quit workin

check for power at the wiper motor. If power at the wiper motor but no wiper action then replace the motor. if no power at the motor then use a jumper wire and put power to the motor. Does motor run? if so check for open circuit in the wire someplace.

SOURCE: windshield wipers don't work.Fuse is good.

Hello Firerocker.
If your washer motor works there is power in the circuit and ground.
The wiper motor housing needs to be grounded.
If neither one works check for power on the green wire leading into the motor. If nothing there your switch may be bad.
If there is power to the green wire then check for power on the gray wire on low wiper speed and power on purple on high speed.
Here is a diagram if you need it.

Hope this gets your wipers going again.

I have a 2008 GMC Acadia. The wipers stopped working the other day and the high beams won't turn on either. I checked the fuses under the hood and also tried swapping the relay with another one.

Both headlamps an wipers are controlled by the BCM - body control module ! There is a lot involved in turning on the headlamps an wipers , here is GM factory service repair manual description .
Low Speed Operation
When the wiper switch is in the low speed position, ground is applied through a resistor internal to the switch and the wiper switch low signal circuit to the body control module (BCM). In response to this signal, the BCM energizes the WPR relay by applying battery voltage through the wiper relay control circuit to the coil side of the relay. This allows battery positive voltage from the WPR fuse to flow through the switch input side of the WPR relay and out to the switch input side of the WPR HI relay. Since the wiper high relay is de-energized and its switch contacts are normally closed to the low speed control circuit of the windshield wiper motor, the motor will operate at low speed.
Wiper motor low speed operation and the WPR relay can also be commanded ON/OFF by using a scan tool. Refer to Control Module References.
There could be DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM .
DTC B3715 DTC B3873 DTC B3875 DTC B3922
Your best option would be to have it checked out by a qualified repair shop . Hooking up a diagnostic scan tool to check inputs an outputs of the BCM is the best way to find the problem . Could be the switches (no input to BCM) The BCM could be at fault . There are relays involved in both the headlamps an wipers , couldn't be three relays bad at the same time .

Front wipers stopped working

There may be a relay under the hood.
Be advised, many cars & trucks, in particular Ford, had problems with wiper motors and window winder motors. I had thought their problems were remedied by 2011, but perhaps not.
If you cannot get this fixed quickly, try the "Rain-ex" products, those will keep you windshield clear until you get the wipers working.
God bless your efforts.

Front windshield wipers only work when using the washer on mist. is this a blown fuse?

No it is a bad wiper motor. The module is built into the motor. First unplug it and plug it back in. Corrosion can be in the plug. Look in the plug for white to greenish color, corrosion. Clean it with battery terminal cleaner, then Clean that out with brake clean. A 2009 shouldn't be dead yet, but it does happen.

How do I replace front wiper arm on GMC Acadia

I had the same problem. I started by applying penetrating oil to the bolt and then I tried a 2 jaw puller. But the jaws would not fit between the arm and the windshield. I then used a 2 1/2 inch "c" clamp and it fit perfectly. Turned the clamp bolt a few times, and the arm popped off the stud in about 10 seconds.
