Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Check the connection of the wiper arms to the rotating shaft. They might be stripped. They're usually splined, and corrosion sometimes wears away the splines. The motor might be spinning, but how about the gearbox that connects the motor to the rotating shafts? It could have stripped teeth. I have seen this when someone forcibly tries to stop the wipers from rotating. Hope this helps. Bilal Hassan Clarksville, MD

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.
